The new Powerstation Plus builds upon the success of previous Powerstation models, adding new integrated charge and sync cables along with 2.4A charging capability. The built-in micro USB and Lightning cables are conveniently housed inside the charger's hinged housing and allow for simultaneous charging of the Powerstation Plus battery and the attached device.


The new Powerstation Plus chargers are available now at Mophie.com with prices starting at $79 for the 3,000 mAh capacity 2X model. Other versions include the 5,000 mAh Powerstation Plus 3X for $99, the 7,000 mAh Powerstation Plus 4X for $119 and the 12,000 mAh Powerstation Plus 8X for $149. Apple's online store also is carrying select models with the 2X and 3X versions both available now for purchase.

way too much for an external battery option....much cheaper options
Mophie needs to concentrate on the battery cases for the 6/6+

Such a rip-off. Paid my Xiaomi 10400 mAh power bank less than 20€.

Too expensive, but it is nice that it has the lightning connector included and puts out 2.4 amps.

Most portable batteries only do 1.0 amps.

While the iphone 6 ships with a 1.0 charger, the phone will accept a charging rate of 2.1 amps allowing the phone to charge in half the time.


Anker 2nd Gen Astro 3 12000mah can output 2.4amps too. Costs only $45.

I love my Jackery (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_sc_0_7?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=jackery&sprefix=jockery%2Caps%2C153) Bar (6,000mAh) and Giant+(12,000mAh) for $30/40. Never had an issue with them for the year I've owned them…even if I did, I could get several more and still be under the Mophie 'name' brand.

Ads like these have really started to annoy me. They're so uninspired. Ads like these are very effective IF the customer is excited about how the product is going to look, and anticipation builds up during the ad, and only if it's an already known brand and so on. For these guys to do it like this serves more to confuse the customers than anything.

Why so many different models? If I want something light and small so I can carry it almost everywhere, I would get the 2X (assuming I can justify Mophie's astronomical price). But anything beyond that, I would want the highest capacity (8X).

And considering Mophie's extreme markup, why skimp on features that some of the cheaper batteries have, such as numerical battery capacity display and smartphone app?

The fact that my iPhone 6 Plus last me through a day with HEAVY use, these prices are laughable

I don't think I want metal edges on anything that might ever be tossed in a bag with my device(s). A rubbery skin or slightly pliable plastic sounds better.
