Mophie Launches Wireless 'Charge Force' Battery Cases and Charging Pads

by

Mophie today introduced a new line of iPhone battery cases that support wireless charging through a bundled-in charging pad. Called the "Charge Force," Mophie's new wireless charging ecosystem begins fueling up a device the moment it's set down on a compatible charge pad, and prioritizes an iPhone's charge before moving over to the battery case.

The new Charge Force-compatible cases aren't limited to Mophie's pad, either, giving users the ability to charge up their iPhone anywhere that supports Qi and "virtually all wireless charging standards." The company also announced its own series of charging pads, including a vertical one for an office desk, a vent mount for the car, and a basic flat model for the home. Powerful magnets hold the iPhone in place securely at any angle, even on a bumpy road trip in a vehicle.

“Wireless charging is being integrated into our lives at coffee shops, restaurants, airports, in furniture, cars and so on,” said Shawn Dougherty, mophie COO and Co-Founder. “By providing a diverse range of wireless charging options, we’ve taken the performance and convenience of mobile power even further.”

On the iPhone battery case side of things, Mophie said that all of the latest juice pack products support Charge Force so users can take advantage of wireless charging with juice pack's "compact design." There aren't any differing design options to choose from at launch, however, with a simple black colorway available for those interested who have either an iPhone 6/6 Plus or iPhone 6s/6s Plus.


A bundle with a juice pack case and Charge Force charging base for the smaller, 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 6s costs $99.95, while the same bundle for the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus and 6s Plus will run users $129.95. Those bundles come with the basic home charging base, which is sold separately for $39.95. Alternative pads for a desk and a car vent are available for $59.95 each.

If I still have to place the iPhone on a specific charging mat that's plugged into an electrical source, there isn't much difference between that and plugging in the charger itself.

I'm much more interested in the wireless charging technology that can be done anywhere in the room without the need for placement on a specific mat. Similar to wifi. That technology will truly revolutionize cell phone charging.

DO NOT BUY UNLESS YOU WANT TO WAIT A MONTH AND DONT CARE ABOUT SERVICE OR SUPPORT!!! So excited for this device to come out, I've been waiting for a wireless charging battery case since I bought the 6S+. I was so excited to see this released. Placed an order on Mophie's site 6/3. They offered free shipping with a 1-2 day processing time, so I patiently waited until 6/6 for an email that it shipped. NOTHING. Their site still listed the item as 'submitted.' But the site now showed the item on back order. Uh-oh! Good thing I got my order in early, right? So I shot an email to support to check the status. Waited 24 hours. NOTHING. So I called Mophie's 800 number. Left a voicemail. No live person, just voicemail. Another day passes and I get an email from Mophie "technical support." "...it appears your order did not make it to shipping prior to that back order. At this time, our best estimate is the product will be shipping within the next 2-3 weeks." Wow. No "I'm sorry you've waited all week for an item that's still a month out." No "I'm sorry we didn't contact you sooner." No "I'm sorry we seriously underestimated demand before bringing this product to market." In fact, there was no "I'm sorry" at all. Look, I get that these things happen, and when they do, it's usually to me. But how hard is it to shoot an email to all those whose orders were unable to be filled. Couldn't be that difficult, right? So today, I get a voicemail from Mophie. It basically told me the same thing, if I had paid for expedited shipping, I would likely have it by now, but between my order and their shipping, they ran out of product. The funny thing is, the guy who left the voicemail from "customer support" was the same guy who sent the email from "technical support." Maybe that explains the unreasonable delay in responding and the lack of proper notification that my item is on back order and I'm giving their company an interest free loan for a month. Maybe they plan to use it to hire more help? Either way, I requested a refund. If this is how they service and support their customers, I want no part of this company. It's amazing how they are hyping this item and they have no supply. I guess they are trying to be like other companies, creating that desire and inaccessibility. The thing is, when those companies ran out of product, they were prepared to react and respond to the customers who got lost in the gap, they made them feel valued. Mophie has one guy. I don't feel valued. I feel angry. And I want a refund. I'm still waiting on that, two days later. Makes you wonder where all the profit goes from.a $130 phone case. Certainly not to improving customer service. Good luck if you plan to get this. I'll wait for a competitors knock off, it will probably have a better battery anyway.

Just curious, when did you order and what shipping speed?

All that's needed is a Lightning connector now, Mophie... come on, already!!! It's been years I've been waiting for a damn Lightning connector on your products. Won't buy one until then.
