Mophie updates Juice Pack external battery lineup


Mophie has taken the wraps off its new lineup of Juice Pack external batteries for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The Juice Pack Powerstation is a 4,000mAh external battery offering 2 amp output capabilities for fast charging of the iPad over USB, a four LED charge status indicator, and built-in short circuit, overcharge and temperature protection. It will sell for $80.

The smaller Juice Pack Boost offers a 2000mAh capacity lithium polymer battery, a slim profile with a pivoting Dock Connector, a soft touch finish, and a four LED charge status indicator. It is priced at $50. Finally, the Juice Pack Reserve is a compact power solution offering a hidden, flexible integrated charging cable, a built-in key ring, a LED power indicator, and a two-tone soft touch and metallic finish. It will sell for $35; all three Juice Pack models are expected to ship September 30th.

I think the Juice Pack Reserve is an extremely interesting design.  Using it on an airplane tray to hold the iPhone either vertically, or horizontally (like an open book) both seem really useful.  I do wish you could fold the iPhone flat against the unit while connected, which would obviously require a more complex hinge. 

Buyers should also note that you can’t charge the iPhone while this unit is being charged, so if you were thinking you could leave your iPhone plugged into this overnight while it was plugged in, say on the nightstand in the hotel while it charged running a clock radio app will be disappointed.  Still, think I’ll be picking one up.  Hoping you have a review up soon.
