CES: Mophie’s new battery cases kill Lightning pain

Mophie has introduced a new range of battery cases for the iPhone XS, XR and X range.

Specific pain relief

The clever thing about these cases is that they provide power to the smartphone while leaving the Lightning port free for use with other devices, not least wired headphones.

The cases also protect the devices against impact damage.

“The juice pack access battery case addresses a very specific customer pain point,” said Robert Johnson, general manager for mophie. “For the first time, the juice pack access leaves the iPhone Lightning port exposed to allow users to plug in wired headphones.”

They provide a good amount of power. The mophie juice pack access for the iPhone Xs/X provides up to 25 hours of total talk time, while the juice pack access for the iPhone Xs Max and iPhone XRprovides up to 31 hours of total talk time.

The cases use a new charging tech mophie calls Priority+.

The juice pack access is equipped with a built-in wireless receiver and transmitter and can charge the phone with any Qi-enabled wireless charger, including mophie’s charge stream family of products, it also includes a built in USB-C input. The iPhone can also be charged via Lightning.

Colors include black, stone, gold, and dark red for the iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone Xs/X, and black, blue, and red for the iPhone XR. Take a look at them here.

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.
