I’m sure many of you folks have heard of Mophie. The company creates mobile battery-charging units, and it got its claim to fame by making “juice pack” cases for iOS devices. These cases provide protection and extra battery life at the same time, so it’s like having an extended battery or swapping out a spare. While this problem was obviously more geared toward the non-user-replaceable Apple devices, many people wanted these cases for other phones.
Well, Mophie has finally extended its collection to include the first Mophie juice pack case that isn’t an iOS device. As you might have guessed (that’s if you didn’t read the title first) it’s for the Samsung Galaxy S3, and this makes total sense for the company. For starters, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is pretty much identical on all carriers in all regions. Some units might be just a tad thicker, but the difference is so marginal that it doesn’t matter.
This gives Mophie just one form factor to target, and since the Samsung Galaxy S3 is a wildly popular phone it’s the perfect device to break out of the iOS wheel they’ve been stuck with. The Galaxy S3’s Mophie juice pack delivers an extra 2,300 mAh of juice, which is actually 200 mAh more than the capacity of the battery the Galaxy S3 ships with. This effectively gives you double the battery life, and while your phone will get a tad bigger you’ll no doubt appreciate what it adds.
Of course, there are a couple of different ways to use this case. Some people keep their devices inside the pack all day, even if they start the day at 100%. Others will only attach the pack when their devices are about to die, and this is probably the most practical way to use it.
But no matter how you prefer to go about your business the commonality of it is that you’re getting a great mobile charging solution that isn’t as cumbersome as the usual bricks we see. It’ll cost you $100 for the privilege of owning one, and you can go ahead and take the plunge over at their website today. The cases are available in either white or black. Read on for full press details.
