Review of the mophie juice pack air for the Apple iPhone 4


- Advertisement -

If you have an iPhone 4 and you find that you never have enough battery power then you need an external battery pack. How about a case with an integrated battery pack? That’s where the juice pack air from mophie comes in.


On a normal day I can usually get away with starting the day with my iPhone 4 fully charged and by the end of the day just charge it again for the next day. However, there are times when I am out and about at events, or on days when I just seem to use the battery much quicker. At those times it can be really frustrating to see that less than 20% battery warning appear along with the red battery icon. That’s usually the point I will turn off various functions and save the battery for an emergency until I get home where I can charge again. I don’t really want to carry around a charging cable and plug so what other options do I have? Well if I still had my iPhone 3GS there are battery cases, battery packs and other things you can buy, but there just aren’t that many yet for the iPhone 4.

Back at IFA in September I spoke with mophie and they were previewing there combined case and battery pack, and then again at CES this year they had it available.

So, here is the UWHS review of the mophie juice pack air.

Here is how mophie describe the juice pack air:

[box style=”rounded” border=”full”]The juice pack air is a rechargeable external battery concealed inside of a protective form-fitting case for the iPhone 4. It offers you the full protection of a hard-shell case while providing virtually twice the battery life of the iPhone alone; all in an ultra-thin, light-weight, low-profile design.[/box]

The juice pack air comes in three colours – black, white and red. We have the black one which fits in nicely with my iPhone 4.
