Following on the heels of popular protective smartphone case manufacturer Otterbox announcing its new battery power case for the iPhone 6, both Mophie and Incipio have revealed new iterations of their popular cases for Apple's newest smartphones as well.

Starting with Mophie, the company announced the Juice Pack Air and Juice Pack Plus for the iPhone 6 and the Juice Pack for the iPhone 6 Plus. Building on Mophie's history of battery cases, the new Juice Pack line provides thinner, more advanced protection in all versions, with the iPhone 6 Plus seeing more than 60 percent extra battery life using the Juice Pack, and the iPhone 6 receiving 100 percent extra for the Juice Pack Air or 120 percent extra for the Juice Pack Plus.

Mophie says the new batteries yield up to an extra 17 hours of talk time, 12 hours of web browsing, 13 hours of video, and 60 hours of music.

“Our journey to bring the juice pack to consumers for every generation of iPhone continues with our latest solutions for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus,” said Daniel Huang, mophie CEO and Co-Founder. “Since release of the original juice pack for the first iPhone, mophie battery cases have become a necessity to legions of smartphone users. Because we understand how vital these solutions are, our team remains intensely focused on quality and the level of innovative design needed to drive the direction of this industry.”

Incipio also revealed new versions of its offGRID battery case line at the Consumer Electronics Show yesterday. The company introduced four charging cases for the iPhone 6 from the offGRID line, but the announcement did not include any versions for the iPhone 6 Plus.

Incipio's offGRID Express

The first was the offGRID Express with a 3,000 mAh battery available only in black and the only case available for purchase today. The offGRID, offGRID SHINE, and offGRID EXO were also announced, sporting more detailed protective "co-mold design" for sudden drops, varying color options, and external charging pins that allow compatibility with the also-announced offGRID Dock. The company says that "2015 marks the year of the offGRID,” said Andy Fathollahi, Chief Executive of Incipio, hoping the dramatic range of product options will satiate old fans and bring in new users.

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus versions of the Mophie Juice Pack line are all available for pre-order from the company's official website with prices starting at $99.95 and shipping in 3-4 weeks. Incipio's offGRID Express case is available for purchase today for $79.99 at the company's online store. The three other announced Incipit battery cases, along with the offGRID Dock, will be available in the first quarter of 2015 with prices ranging from $89.99 to $109.99 for the cases and $39.99 for the dock.

Too Little Too Late

I've always loved Mophie. I always bought their products, but this was so late in the timeline of battery cases. I am a heavy user and it is no shock to run out of battery before the day's end. I needed a battery case before Christmas and I went with this one:

http://www.amazon.com/iPhone-Battery-Trianium-Atomic-Inches/dp/B00NTCCHG6/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1420571528&sr=8-2&keywords=atomic+trianium (http://www.amazon.com/iPhone-Battery-Trianium-Atomic-Inches/dp/B00NTCCHG6/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1420571528&sr=8-2&keywords=atomic+trianium)

I have loved it since I got it. It has a 3100 mAh battery (only 200 less than the Mophie Plus), charge and pass thru sync, and provides great protection... oh and it's $50.00 LESS than the Mophie Plus.

Case closed.

Really disappointed in this iteration of the JuicePack. I saw a version for the 5S at the Apple Store last year that had a charging dock with leads on the bottom of the case similar to the old cordless phones and chargers which meant that you didn't need to plug it in/use a mini-USB cable. The case would charge and then the phone. I think there was a pass-thru for the Lightning Cable too. I hate that you have to charge with a separate mini-USB cable and it doesn't work with any of the Lightning cable accessories that you probably already own (dock, cables, chargers, etc.). Would've been interested in this iPhone 6 version if it was similar to the previous one.

Sorry Mophie

Sorry Mophie, you lost me as a customer. This is the second time that I have gotten a new phone and had to wait several months for you to get a product to market. Looks like there are cheaper, better alternatives already out there. You need to up your game and not wait 3 months to release a case. I am also tired of wasting my money on a battery case. I will get my self a portable battery that I can simply plug the phone into for a quick charge and it will last me several generations of iPhones.
