The ideal case for the everyday 9–5er and for those whose day doesn't always end when they leave the office. Lighter and thinner than previous generations, but packed with more power to make sure your phone can keep up with your busy lifestyle.
While the Helium comes equipped with a 1500mAh battery, the Air offers a 1700mAh battery, which promises to double the iPhone 5's battery life, adding an additional eight hours of LTE use. The Helium, in contrast, is only capable of charging an iPhone battery to 80 percent, offering six hours of LTE use.

The Air and the Helium share a similar thin design, but the Air is slightly larger in all dimensions, including weight. The Air is 2.60 in x 5.54 in x 0.63 in and 2.68 oz, while the Helium is 2.49 in x 5.49 in x 0.59 in and 2.44 oz.


The black version of the Juice Pack Air will ship in 7–10 days, while the red and white versions will ship on March 22. All three cases can currently be purchased through Mophie's online store. for $99.95.

I just wish Apple would make a limited edition iPhone that included a larger battery. That way you wouldn't have to have the added thickness of two extra layers of plastic when you added the battery like this.


Exactly! Maybe I'm in the minority, but I personally wouldn't mind a phone that's even twice as thick as the current iPhone 5 if it meant double the battery life. I think Apple's taken the "thinnest phone on the market" competition a bit too far, and I'm sad to see that sacrificing features such as battery life was even a consideration for them.

I disagree completely. Almost every other device I carry uses micro USB, the fact that this does too means I can carry a micro USB cable and charge my iPhone, Kindle, LG Bluetooth Headset, miFi, etc.

It's also a nice bonus, because if I'm somewhere and need to charge without a cable, most everyone has a micro USB charger as well.

Their obsession with thin is ruining some of their best products because they favour form over function.

They "could" have kept using the 30 pin dock connector, made the phone slightly thicker and used the additional space for more internal battery. I know they've probably being planning to phase out the 30 pin connector for some time, lighning doesn't seem to be something they've cobbled together as a work-around but it's still annoying that systems like the Juice Pack even need to exist.

i do all that on the way TOO and FROM work, on the train, on my 1hr 30min each way commute.. during the working day i need email, calls and web access frequently whilst MOBILE, cant be tethered charging all day.


Perhaps Apple should offer different battery capacity just like they offer different storage capacities. Then people could choose the standard model the whole way up to the Nightarchaon model that will last at least 11 hours. Of course, that'd mean designing the phone to accommodate the largest battery, but people who don't have a 3 hour commute wont mind that compromise.

Good luck.

Apple, get your act together, whats the point of a Smartphone, that you have to treat like a dumb phone and not use to get it to last a full a working day on a single charge ?

First you said this.

As soon as you start using this phones features, to play games, stream video, watch movies, listen to music, browse the web and more, your battery life plumets, so much so that 3hrs "use" a day can put you at the point of needing to charge midway through the day.

Now this.

It's nice your employer allows you to 'play games, stream video, watch movies, listen to music, browse the web and more'. :)
