Third-party accessory company Mophie today announced the "Power Capsule," a new carrying case with a built-in battery that's aimed at recharging wireless headphones. Mophie's new accessory is well-timed, following Apple's move to Lightning-connected headphones in the iPhone 7 and the slowly growing adoption of wireless solutions, including Apple's own AirPods, which include their own charging case.

The Power Capsule includes a 1,400 mAh battery, which Mophie said can provide up to eight full charges for wireless headphones. Inside the case is an integrated USB output, so earbuds aren't the sole beneficiary of the accessory. The company mentioned "small, compatible wireless devices, wearables and other accessories," like fitness trackers and other wearables, could also be used with the case.

As with most battery packs, the Power Capsule supports pass-through charging, so the device within will be prioritized and then charging will switch over to the Power Capsule itself to fuel up. On the underside of the case is a row of LED lights to provide easy indication of where the current charge is and when users should begin charging it.

The power capsule holds a built-in 1400mAh battery, providing up to eight full charges for wireless earbuds. The integrated USB output also charges a variety of electronics including wearables, fitness trackers and more. Pass-through capabilities allow both the power capsule and your device to charge simultaneously. Once your device is fully charged, an automatic shut-off will engage to ensure maximum charges. Easy-to-find LED power indicators displayed on the outside of the case allow you to check charging status without needing to open the case.

The outside of the case is made out of EVA Foam and high quality silicone and was "developed for those on the move," so it'll keep accessories protected on road trips and at the gym, according to Mophie.

The Mophie Power Capsule is available right now on the company's website for $39.95, and will launch in Best Buy's retail stores September 18.

Can't wait for Anker to come up with something similar. Mophie is overpriced Af.

What the hell that means? Useless information. Reminds me when I asked Domino's employee about the size of the pizza. "8 slices".
My reply? - Slicing it in 10 won't make the pizza bigger! (drops the mic)

AirPods lasts 5 hours and you can charge them 4-5 times (I think) putting back in the box.
Since the charger can be used for multiple devices, there's no way for them to give you a specific number. Up to 8 full charges is probably based on a best case scenario using a specific brand of headphones. They used Beats in the ad linked by @webbuzz. It also says up to 60 hrs of extra battery. Maybe that will get you closer to the number you're looking for.

Overpriced and terrible customer support. Had a air juice thing or whatever it was called and they denied a replacement when it wouldn't hold a charge because it had a few scratches on it. Like very few, never been dropped and it was made out of a hard plastic that was prone to scratching. It was a waste of 80 bucks. Never again.

Are the AirPods basic inductive, or do they utilize the same tech (making this compatible)?
I'm guessing it's just a battery case with a micro usb port inside. What you're thinking it might be wouldn't come from Mophie, that would be too innovative.
