Mobee to Showcase New Magic Juice, Link, and Tunes at CES 2013

Mobee, best known for its chargers for Apple’s peripherals, has three new products that will debut at CES 2013, including a compact battery, a speaker, and a universal charging cable.

Magic Juice ($79.99), Mobee’s compact battery solution, is designed to provide a full charge for an iPad or two charges for an iPhone. The battery is the first charging solution that can be recharged wirelessly, using a Mobee flat charging station, which includes the Mobee Magic Feet and the Mobie Magic Charger.

Magic Tunes is a double wireless speaker, meaning it uses Bluetooth to play audio and also recharges via the same Mobee flat charging station. The small rectangular speaker includes an integrated microphone, for use with Skype, FaceTime, and Conference calls.

Magic Link is a simple charging cable that has the ability to be switched off and on. When an iDevice is fully charged or unconnected from the cable, it will switch off to save energy. The Magic Link works with all Lightning, 30-pin and Micro-USB connections.

Mobee’s products will debut at CES 2013, which begins on Jan. 8 and ends Jan. 11.

Magic Link is a simple charging cable


Have you ever known of a complex charging cable?

I know this site doesn't do endorsed articles, or so i'm told, but this sure looks a lot like one.

Magic Link is pretty worthless. Monitoring the power consumption of an iPhone after charging, it takes more than 2 weeks to register even 0.01Kwh. You'd have to leave your phone plugged in for years and years to recoup the cost of that cable.

When a phone isn't plugged into your standard Apple charger, it consumes nothing. At least nothing registered after 2 months of leaving one plugged into a Kill-A-Watt meaning if it is using power, you're talking about less than 0.00Kwh in 2 months.

Agreed about this sounding like an endorsement. I do like the idea of it being micro usb compatible though.


well they've got to find a way to make up for all the money they were making from the appshopper app removed by apple. :rolleyes:

After reading through that article three times, I still don’t understand how it works, exactly :confused:


because it is not really an article, but advertising info. ;)

The power wasted in illuminating the cable would probably exceed the alleged power savings!!!

Magic link is the single most stupid accessory I have ever heard of. The 1/2 cent that I would save over a 30 year period is hadly enticing.

Okay, then that magic link cable is really useless.

I interpret its use as more to prevent your battery from overcharging than to save electricity. So you can safely leave your iphone charging overnight without worrying, and it will be at 100% when you wake up, and its battery none the worse for wear.


The phone already manages the battery charging, including when to start, stop, and the rate of charge. The cable just feeds it.

Well I'd say they do endorsed articles, but don't call them such. I've seen many articles here that are pretty much advertising a product or an app.

That's a tremendous little measurement/observation you made. It makes me think that the kill-a-watt people should have a blog of their own where they look at both improvements found through their device and total nonsensical "green" claims that some companies (like Mobee) are making.

Have you ever known of a complex charging cable?


A simple charging cable is one that only charges the device.

A new security risk: power sources in public places posing as a "simple" charger that attempt to make a data connection to the device.

I know this site doesn't do endorsed articles, or so i'm told, but this sure looks a lot like one.


I think I'll ask about this article in the feedback forum...
