Mophie today announced a modular accessory line of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus cases that allow users to attach various peripherals via magnetic charge on the back of Apple's smartphone. Shawn Dougherty, co-founder and President of Mophie, said the new "Hold Force" line offers "stylish, protective cases" with the advantage of extra battery life and spots for credit cards.

The first step in ordering a Hold Force case is choosing the 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch case size for the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. Users will also pick between 9 color options on each accessory that range from one solid color scheme, to a "wrap" option that has a line of color sitting between see-through plastic. Cases in both sizes sell for $39.95.

The second step guides users in picking out a magnetic accessory to stick on the back of the Hold Force case, which are right now limited to a wallet system and battery pack. The Hold Force Wallet is available only for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus at $19.95, and includes 2 credit card pockets that Mophie says "keeps your cash, credit cards and ID together with your phone in one spot" thanks to the new line's secure magnetic attachments.


The Hold Force Folio offers three spots for credit cards and cash, along with a piece of material that flips and covers the front of the iPhone. Like the Wallet, the Folio is available for both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus for $19.95. The company noted that the magnetic attachments have no negative effects on credit cards while they are inside of the Hold Force system.

Lastly, the Hold Force Powerstation Plus Mini can provide up to 12 hours of extra battery life for average smartphones, thanks to its integrated 4,000 mAh battery. The accessory's basic charging system is focused on micro-USB, so an included Lightning adapter allows for support of recharging the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Mophie sells the Powerstation Plus Mini for $59.95.

Someone call the DEA because clearly there's some serious crack-smokin' going on at Mophie.

They had a golden opportunity this year to turn the company around but they missed the boat. They knew the new iPhone would NOT have a headphone jack and the dimensions of the phone was known for a very long time. A battery case with a headphone jack would be selling in boatloads right now instead they're making overpriced crap like this.

Modular design stuff like this always interests me. It seems like there should be a lot of potential there, but every iteration on it is... lackluster, at best.

Apple should abandon the quest for thin and double battery size. Think of the selling point! 2+ day battery. My battery must be charged throughout the day or it is in the red by 5 pm.

Makes the Apple Battery Case look like Marilyn Monroe.

I think perhaps give it a rest already. They didn't make 7 any thinner (that's three years at same thickness) and added on 2+ hours of battery life, depending on use. They even made Watch thicker—they hear the feedback. I personally didn't like the 6 because I found it too big and too heavy. Design is about trade-offs. If you want a big fat iPhone for the battery life gain many battery cases exist. As for me and the many like me, I was forced to move from the 6 to the SE as at its current size is too big and heavy. If you want great battery life get a plus or a battery case or bring a power pack: several options.
