Mophie Unveils Next-Generation Powerstation External Battery Lineup

Mophie today announced the debut of a new lineup of Powerstation external batteries, which can be used to charge a range of different electronic devices, including Apple's iPhone and iPad. The new Powerstation battery packs are Mophie's thinnest and lightest yet, with an aluminum finish designed to mesh well with iOS devices and 15W fast charging capabilities.

Mophie's new Powerstation products follow in the footsteps of its previous Powerstation line, with Mophie offering several different battery capacities at varying prices and sizes. Available sizes include 1X (2,000 mAh), 2X (4,000 mAh), 3X (6,000 mAh), 5X (10,000 mAh), and 8X, with the 8X size offering a capacity of 15,000 mAh, which Mophie says is equivalent to an additional 54 hours of talk time, 59 hours of web browsing, 59 hours of video playback, and 272 hours of audio time.

The smallest Powerstation, the 1X, measures in at 6.9mm thick and 95.5mm (3.76 inches) long, while the largest 8X Powerstation is 12.1mm thick and 183.9mm (7.24 inches) long, with other sizes fitting in between the two extremes.

The higher-end 5X and 8X models include support for a Mophie Power app that lets users see the remaining battery life in the Powerstation and how long it will take to charge a device to full. The app is also able to send custom notifications when batteries are low or fully charged.

All models except for the 1X version also support pass-through charging, which will charge an iOS device before charging the Powerstation. On the 3X, 5X, and 8X models, there are also two ports for charging multiple devices at one time.

Mophie's new Powerstation lineup is available for purchase from the Mophie website, Apple.com, and Apple retail stores. Pricing starts at $39.95 for the Powerstation 1X and goes up to $149.95 for the Powerstation 8X.

Agreed. They're taking a page out of Apple's playbook and charging $40 for a 2,000 mAh battery but oooh...it's so thin and light! That's almost as criminal as Apple charging $1,100 for an iMac and including a 5400 RPM spindle drive. By comparison, Anker offers a 20,000 mAh battery for $40 on Amazon.

Nice form factor but it's tough to beat the Anker batteries on price/performance in my experience.

They're gorgeous, but damn, they're expensive. I guess the good news is that they haven't gone up on the price, since the last generation was similarly priced.

Right. At the end of the day, these are just batteries. Anker batteries ($40, 20,000 mAh, see below) look nice enough to me. While app integration can be nice, I frankly don't want to install yet another app to monitor a battery that I will use only few times a year.
