    Mophie’s MacBook-charging battery pack is indispensable but overpriced

    Every time we do a gift guide here, one editor suggests the same thing: external battery packs. Every time, like clockwork. And it’s true, everyone in your life probably needs one. We all wander through our days tempting fate by porting around gadgets with sub-par battery life. The other big upside of gifting a power bank: they’re generally pretty inexpensive.

    The Moto Mods ecosystem expands with a car dock and Mophie battery backup

    At launch, the Moto Z was compatible with three different modular backings (four if you count the shell projector): a Motorola pico projector, a speaker from JBL and an Incipio battery pack. Shortly after launch, the company brought a little camera brand legitimacy to the ecosystem with a Hasselblad back featuring 10x optical zoom.

    Mophie’s charging case is a no-brainer for wireless earbud owners

    Of late, Mophie seems to be intent on letting the world know that it’s more than just charging cases – but hey, at the end of the day, there are worse things to be than virtually synonymous with a given space. And hey, when Apple unveiled its first proprietary charging case a year or so back, everyone was quick to drop the hardware startup’s name like it was going out… Read More

    Mophie debuts a whole bunch of battery power banks with reduced price points

    Mophie wants everyone to know that it’s more than just battery cases — the company made as much extremely clear when we met to take a look at its new offerings. Not that it minds that its Juice Packs have become synonymous with the space, of course, but the company hastens to add that a big chunk of its products are the standalone variety. And Mophie’s got a whole lot to… Read More

    Early on in the Pokémon Go hype cycle, there were signs that players were driving a significant uptick in sales of backup batteries, like the Mophie units you may be familiar with that offer USB connections for topping up mobile devices while you’re away from an outlet.

    Hands on with the Mophie Charge Force wireless charging system

    In launching its Charge Force wireless charging accessories last month, Mophie wanted to convince you that wireless charging was the future of everything that was lovely and good.
