    Gillmor Gang: Action Items

    The Gillmor Gang — Dan Farber, Kevin Marks, Semil Shah, Danny Sullivan, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — played the latest favorite game of the Mobility Addicted. It’s called Lock Screen, and some of us think it’s where the early adopters meet the great unvarnished Silent Majority. Forget clicks or swipes or doing anything; it’s all about glancing. What this means… Read More

    Mophie Space Pack Review: Have Some Extra Storage With Your iPhone Backup Battery

    Apple offers the iPhone in a number of different storage capacities, ranging from 16GB to 64GB, but it doesn’t offer expansion storage options to let users add their own via micro SD or any other format. Mophie has spent years building backup battery packs for iPhone devices, and now it’s adding additional space to store your files, too, with the appropriately named Mophie… Read More

    Mophie Team Explains Why It’s Expanding From Power To Storage

    Mophie said earlier this week that it’s expanding beyond its popular smartphone battery products with the upcoming launch of the Mophie Space Pack. Shortly after the announcement, I stopped by the Mophie booth at the Consumer Electronics Show to get a demo of the new product. The company’s PR manager Kevin Malinowsky told that from Mophie’s perspective, the company has… Read More

    Mophie’s Powerstation XL Packs In The Power For Extended Time Away From Outlets

    Our devices have a never-ending hunger for power – it’s their single greatest failing, in a time when they can do incredible things but still only last around a day of solid use in the best-case scenario. But Mophie has made a name for itself providing extra juice for your devices, and now they’ve got a new Powerstation XL model that packs a crazy 12,000 mAh, which can… Read More

    Gift Guide: Something For A Twenty-Something

    Twenty-somethings are some of the hardest people to shop for. They’re changing so quickly, interests waxing and waning by the day, that it can be pretty difficult to figure out a great gift for the holidays. But have no fear. At least one of these four suggestions should be a good fit for a young professional or college student, whether they’re your family member or friend. Read More

    The Mophie Juice Pack Air For iPhone 5 Drops iTunes Syncing, But Still Saves You When You Need More Power

    Mophie caused a bit of a double-take by introducing not one but two rechargeable external battery cases for the iPhone 5 within a few days of each other. The Juice Pack Helium offers a sleeker body, but the Juice Pack Air, announced later, offers more stamina. I’ve been testing the latter for nearly a week now, and it lives up to Mophie’s good reputation, with a single trade-off… Read More

    Mophie’s iPhone 5 Battery Case, The Juice Pack Helium, Now Available For $79.95

    Mophie is one of the most trusted names in iPhone and mobile backup batteries, and the company has finally debuted its battery case for iPhone 5. The Mophie Juice Pack Helium is around 13 percent thinner than the Air version released for iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 (get it? Helium is lighter than air), and retails for $79.95 right now direct from the Mophie store. The cases should ship in time… Read More

    Gift Guide: Mophie Outride Action Camera Case For iPhone 4/4S

    Mophie is best known for doubling your iPhone’s battery life with the Mophie juice pack, but the company actually offers a wide range of iPhone accessories including the Outride Wide-Angle Lens iPhone case and mount kit. Anyone who’s been interested in action cameras like the GoPro and Looxcie should be especially interested to get almost the exact same functionality out of… Read More

  • The Real SXSW “Winner” Is The Mophie Juice Pack

    The Real SXSW “Winner” Is The Mophie Juice Pack

    So Highlight didn’t “win” SXSW, as some tech bloggers had hypothesized, for many reasons. It did however have a close relationship to what eventually ended up winning, as its¬†background GPS turns out to significantly strain iPhone battery life. Even before SXSW, users were reporting notable reduction in battery charge when using Highlight, on average going from two days to… Read More

  • Ten Technologies That Will Rock 2010

    Now that the aughts are behind us, we can start the new decade with a bang. So many new technologies are ready to make a big impact this year. Some of them will be brand new, but many have been gestating and are now ready to hatch. If there is any theme here it is the mobile Web. As I think through the top ten technologies that will rock 2010, more than half of them are mobile. But… Read More

  • Mophie Juice Pack Air gets festive, now available in red

    What is there to say about this, outside of the headline? We loved the Mophie Juice Pack at first, only to have it almost literally fall apart in our hands. Mophie said the problem we had definitely shouldn’t have happened, and shouldn’t happen again. Whether or not the problem was isolated and/or fixed, I’ve got no idea. But I do know one thing: now it comes in red! Earlier… Read More

  • Review: Mophie iPhone 3G Juice Pack air

    I can’t deny the fact that Mophie knows how to make stylish accessories for the iPhone, but after a lackluster experience with the original Juice Pack for the iPhone 3G I’m wondering if the air will fair any better. Quick Version: The Juice Pack air has an added bonus of being not only a reserve battery pack, but also a hard cover for your iPhone 3G. It doesn’t add too much… Read More

  • Put your iPod Touch on the juice

    If you’ve been thinking that your iPod Touch is looking a little skinny, and needs more battery life, mophie has been looking for you. Following up on the version they came out with for the iPhone back in October. And while the version we reviewed back in January didn’t meet our expectations, hopefully they’ve worked out their manufacturing issues. Read More

  • Mophie Juice Pack Air for the iPhone 3G up for pre-order

    Coming this spring from Mophie is the Juice Pack Air for the iPhone 3G, which is essentially the Juice Pack but with a top cover to fully encase your iPhone. I’d be excited by this concept, but I’ve been using FastMac’s iV for the last month and it’s significantly better despite it’s girth. Read More

  • Review: Mophie Juice Pack for the iPhone 3G

    Mophie’s Juice Pack for the iPhone 3G is without a doubt a must-have if you can swallow the high price tag of $100. But I’d gladly pay the extra $100 knowing that I can leave the office or my apartment and gallivant around town without fear of having to find a power outlet by mid-day. Read More

  • Mophie starts shipping iPhone 3G juice packs

    That’s if you pre-ordered yours on or before September 8th, suckas. If you ordered beyond that date then don’t expect your juice pack to start shipping until the 30th of October. But be warned, consumers, for the juice pack for the iP3G is still awaiting its “Works for iPhone” Apple certification, which could effect shipping dates so maybe they should have held off, no?

  • CrunchDeals: Mophie iPod cases for 99 cents

    If you’re like me and still have an older gen iPod (I have a 4th gen 30GB photo) and haven’t encased it into some silicone, but you’re in the market then you might want to take a look at Mophie’s cornucopia of 99 cent cases for iPod videos, Classics and Nanos. Read More

  • Mophie juice pack for iPhone 3G coming this September

    Despite the price tag of $99, I will be sure to get myself one of these for my iP3G. I’ve been testing the MJP for my first gen iPhone and so far it works great. Sure, it’s a tad bulky, but I’ll deal with it so long as I have enough juice without having to run to an outlet every few hours. A string of four LEDs located on the back indicate how much battery life the juice… Read More

  • Mophie ‘Juice Pack’ for iPod Touch coming in August

    Already available for the iPhone, the Mophie Juice Pack will be available in an iPod Touch-friendly version next month. The $99 apparatus contains a lithium polymer battery and doubles as a soft-grip case that holds the Touch, giving it an extra seven hours of video playback or 24 hours of audio playback. That’s an entire day! You may recall that I took a look at the Richard Solo… Read More

  • Mophie juice pack extends the life of your iFones, yay

    A case actually worth buying. Too bad it’s for the iPhone. I like what Mophie has done with the juice pack iPhone battery extender. It’s very similar to the BlackBerry holsters, but do the RIM holsters bolster the ability to add eight hours of talk time, six hours of Internet use, 24 hours of audio and seven hours of video? Nope. The juice pack does all that and you can check on… Read More
