Mophie Juice Pack Air Battery Cases for iPhone XS and XS Max Now Available From Amazon for $100

As part of a promotion for Amazon's upcoming Prime Day, the site is now offering exclusive Prime member access to Mophie's new Juice Pack Air Battery Pack Cases designed for the iPhone X, XS, and XS Max.

The Juice Pack Air battery cases for Apple's newest iPhones are similar to the Juice Pack Air battery case for the iPhone X that Mophie released back in November. Mophie's battery cases are designed to provide extra battery life for Apple's newest iPhones and are offered as an alternative to Apple's own Smart Battery Cases.


Priced at $99.95 for both the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max versions, the new Juice Pack Air cases are able to charge using a Qi-based wireless charger or a Lightning cable, a first for the Mophie battery case line.


Mophie says that the Juice Pack Air was designed to be slim and lightweight, but as it is a battery case, it does add a decent amount of bulk to Apple's thin and light iPhones. An LED light at the back lets you know charge level, as this case is not able to integrate with the iPhone in the same way as the Apple-designed cases.


Both versions of the case come equipped with 1,720mAh batteries inside, which Mophie claims will extend the iPhone's battery life to a total of 34 hours, which is presumably talk time. That's similar to what Apple promises from the Smart Battery Cases.

Amazon is offering up the Juice Pack Air cases in graphite, black, red, and rose gold, and only Amazon Prime members are able to make a purchase at this time.

Talk time, the least relevant metric in all smartphoneodom.

For $30 more, I’d rather get the Apple battery case.

The Apple brand battery cases have really bad reviews on Apple's website, mostly complaints about the lightning connector inside the case that plugs into the phone disconnecting intermittently, and they are out of stock in all stores and online until August. Looks like Apple may be addressing the issue and re-tooling how their own cases are made.

I guess this case is one way to get rid of the camera bump.

Same. The fact that you can fast-charge the phone and case at the same time with a lightning cable is very convenient.

True. Not to mention iOS integration with the case.

This case retains use of the lightning cable and on our samples, fast charging as well.

Confused by this one, seems like its the same as the Juice Pack Access just fully enclosed with a lighting port but maybe a smaller battery?
