Review: Mophie's USB-C Equipped 26,000mAh Powerstation 3XL Has Enough Juice to Charge Your MacBook or MacBook Air

Mophie recently announced the launch of its largest battery pack yet, the Powerstation 3XL, which is designed for charging Apple's line of MacBook and MacBook Air devices. The Powerstation 3XL features a 26,000mAh capacity and 45 watts of power, making it ideal for charging devices that include the iPhone, iPad Pro, 12-inch MacBook, and new MacBook Air. As you might expect with a 26,000mAh device, the Powerstation 3XL is not a small, pocket-sized charger. It's 6.6 inches long and 3.7 inches wide, plus nearly an inch thick. You can fit this into a bag or backpack without much trouble, but it is bigger than even Apple's largest iPhone, the XS Max. The Powerstation 3XL weighs more than a pound (18 ounces), and it feels like a heavy, sturdy accessory. The charger is made from a black plastic material that's covered in a soft, tweed material that makes it easy to grip and adds some flair. Design wise, this is a high-quality charger that looks like it's expensive, which it should, because Mophie is charging $200. At the bottom of the Powerstation 3XL, there are two USB-C ports, one for plugging into USB-C accessories like the MacBook Air or MacBook, and one for charging the power bank with a USB-C cable. You can tell the two ports apart by a little line and a lightning bolt that indicates which side is used for which. There's also a USB-A port next to the USB-C charging port so you can also charge USB-A accessories. In total, you can charge one device using the USB-C port and one device using the USB-A port at once, and if you plug in a USB-C cable and a

Review: Mophie's Latest Powerstation Batteries Pack Power and App Integration Into a Slim Design

Late last year, Mophie unveiled its latest lineup of Powerstation external batteries, offering a number of slim new options for recharging mobile devices on the go. The lineup includes five models: 1X (2,000 mAh), 2X (4,000 mAh), 3X (6,000 mAh), 5X (10,000 mAh), and 8X (15,000 mAh), with prices ranging from $40 to $150. Mophie's Powerstation batteries are available from a number of outlets, including Apple's own online and retail stores for most of the lineup. Mophie sent me both the 2X and 8X varieties for testing purposes, and I've been using them as my primary external batteries for the past several months. Design Mophie's batteries certainly aren't cheap, but they do come in appealing designs using high-quality materials, so a bit of a price premium is to be expected. The casings of the latest Powerstation models are made entirely or almost entirely of aluminum with a matte finish, nicely complementing Apple's most popular silver color. They feature a slim design that makes them easy to slip into a purse, bag, or even a pocket for the smaller versions, along with a substantial, high-quality feel. A button and four LEDs along the side of each battery makes it easy to quickly check approximate charge level. As is typical of Mophie products, the Powerstation design and feel are terrific.

Review: Mophie's Juice Pack Reserve & Power Reserve Offer Power in Small Packages

Back in September, Mophie launched two brand-new battery products, the Juice Pack Reserve, a $59.95 battery case for the iPhone 6 and 6s, and the Power Reserve 1X, a small $34.95 external battery for smartphones and wearables. I have been testing both for the past two weeks in regular daily use and at a wedding, an environment that tends to be more smartphone-intensive than a typical day. Mophie says the Juice Pack Reserve is the most compact battery case it's ever created, adding just 0.3 inches of thickness and 75 grams of weight to the iPhone 6 or 6s. In my testing, I found that Mophie's claim that the case is in a form factor that "you'll barely notice" is mostly true, although with a caveat. Its soft-touch back provided a comfortable and easy-to-grasp grip despite feeling noticeably more dense. However, the case's lower lip, where the speaker grille resides and the case plugs into the iPhone, is far more noticeable and users not accustomed to the extra length will have to spend some time acclimating to it when scrolling or typing. The case's extra mass was not a hindrance when attemtping to quickly capture moments at the wedding though, as it slipped in and out of tuxedo pockets fairly easily. In fact, the in-pocket feel of the case was barely noticeable in tuxedo pants, even during more intensive activites like dancing. The extra mass of the case is, however, more obvious visually. In more regular daily use, the case was even less of a hindrance. Mophie claims the Juice Pack Reserve will provide an additional 60 percent charge to an iPhone 6 or 6s, with

Mophie Watch Dock Review: Charge Your Apple Watch on a Simple $60 Aluminum and Leather Stand

Alongside the start of pre-orders for the Apple Watch last month, Mophie announced the Watch Dock, a $60 aluminum stand for the Apple Watch with leather accents and hideaway cable storage. It took a bit longer than the original estimate of April 24 for the Watch Dock to launch, but it's now shipping out to the first batch of pre-order customers and Mophie has provided us with one for testing purposes. The Watch Dock is very straightforward, with the box containing only the stand and a quick start guide illustrating how to route your existing Apple Watch charging cable through the stand. A circular cutout at the top of the stand holds the inductive charger, with the cable being fed through a rubber-enclosed channel along the inside of the stand's arm, disappearing into the base and out the back. The cable management system offers a clean look for the stand and the design makes it easy to mount an Apple Watch with either a looped or a traditional band for charging. The angled design of the stand makes it ideal for placement on a nightstand or desk where an occasional glance might be necessary.

Best Wireless Chargers for iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus

With the release of the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus, Apple now supports Qi-based wireless inductive charging on its latest phones, and that means charging pads have quickly become popular accessories for iPhone owners. Apple's favored partners for wireless charging pads are Belkin and mophie, and Apple is carrying a $60 charger from each company in its own online and retail stores. But there are lots of other options available on the market, and we've had a chance to try out a number of them, so we're rounding them up in this guide which we'll continue to update going forward.

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

Mophie's 'Juice Pack Access' Battery Cases for iPhone XS Max, XS, and XR Now Available

Mophie's Juice Pack Access battery cases for the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR are now available for purchase from the Mophie website, Mophie announced today. Similar in design to Apple's own battery cases, Mophie's Juice Pack Access offers additional battery life for Apple's 2018 iPhone lineup. Priced at $99.95, the Juice Pack Access charges the iPhone using 5W wireless charging capabilities, leaving the Lightning port on the device free for Lightning-based accessories. This is the first of Mophie's cases that leaves the Lightning port accessible. Compared to Apple's line of Smart Battery Cases, Mophie's Access options are more affordable ($29 less) but do not have quite as much battery capacity, charge slower (though not a huge issue with a battery case), and do not have the same deep integration with iOS. The Smart Battery Case lets you check battery level right on your device, but on Mophie's, you'll need to use the small LED battery indicator on the side. There's a 2,200mAh battery in the Juice Pack Access for iPhone XS Max and a 2,000mAh battery in the cases for the XR and XS. Apple's Smart Battery Case, meanwhile, offers more power due to the two 1,369mAh batteries in the device. Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos. The Juice Pack Access for iPhone X and XS offers up to 25 hours of total talk time, while the Juice Pack Access for iPhone XR provides up to 31 hours of total talk time (these figures include the built-in battery in the iPhone as well). You can charge the Juice Pack Access using a Qi

Mophie Launching iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR Juice Pack Battery Cases in Early 2019

Mophie, a popular Apple-certified accessory maker, has today announced that all-new Juice Pack Access battery cases for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR will be available in the first quarter of 2019. The juice packs extend the battery life of the iPhone XS by up to 25 hours, and the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR by up to 31 hours, according to Mophie. The cases can be charged with an included USB-C cable or wirelessly on any Qi-certified mat. With pass-through charging, the iPhone charges first, then the case. The cases have battery capacities of 2,000 mAh for the iPhone XS, 2,200 mAh for the iPhone XS Max, and 2,000 mAh for the iPhone XR. Four LEDs on the back of each case indicate the charged level of the battery pack. Each case features an impact-resistant polycarbonate exterior with a soft-touch finish, while raised corners provide added protection against scratching and cracking the display. The open-bottom design provides full access to the Lightning connector on each iPhone for normal use of headphones and other accessories. Mophie says built-in protection circuitry prevents overcharging and overheating, and each juice pack is very likely certified by Apple under its Made for iPhone program, but we're reaching out to the company for confirmation. The new Juice Pack Access cases for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR will each retail for $119.95 in the United States on Mophie's website, where customers can sign up to be notified when orders begin. The cases will be available in a variety of colors, including black, gold, navy,

Mophie Introduces New 18-Watt Powerstation PD Batteries for Fast Charging

Mophie, Apple's retail and online store partner for external batteries, today announced a pair of new Powerstation PD batteries supporting 18-watt fast charging over USB-C to charge your phone to 50 percent in as little as 30 minutes. Just a few months ago, the company launched a high-capacity 45-watt USB-C PD battery aimed at providing power for MacBooks, but the new Powerstation PD and PD XL come in at lower price points and lower power optimized for phones. The 6,700 mAh Powerstation PD is priced at $59.95, while the 10,050 mAh powerstation PD XL is priced at $79.95. Each model includes a USB-C port that supports 18-watt charging output and 15-watt charging input, as well as a USB-A port that supports up to 12-watt output, and Mophie's Priority+ passthrough charging technology ensures connected devices charge first, followed by the battery. The new Powerstation PD and PD XL are available today at mophie.com, but there's no word yet on whether they'll also be coming to Apple's retail and online

Mophie Launches Juice Pack Air Battery Case for iPhone X at $99.95

Mophie today launched the long-awaited Juice Pack Air case for the iPhone X, nearly eight months after it received Qi certification for the accessory. The case comes in two colors -- Black and Navy -- and is being sold for $99.95. The Black Juice Pack Air can be ordered today and will ship in 1-2 business days, but at the time of writing the Navy is out of stock. Juice Pack Air is a Qi case for iPhone X, and can store battery to recharge the smartphone while on the go. There's a built-in 1,720 mAh battery that Mophie says extends the life of iPhone X to a total of 30 hours. With Qi support, you can place the Juice Pack Air on any Qi-compatible mat to refuel the accessory as well as the iPhone X. Like other Juice Packs from Mophie, the Juice Pack Air for iPhone X has high-impact protection, a low-profile design, and a LED status indicator on the back of the case to see how much battery is left. Compared to previous iterations, the Juice Pack Air for iPhone 8/7 has a 2,525 mAh battery and the iPhone 8 Plus/7 Plus accessory has a 2,420 mAh battery. Rumors about the launch of the Juice Pack Air began circulating in March of this year, when Mophie applied to the Wireless Power Consortium to gain Qi certification for the charging case. With the clearance, the Juice Pack Air became the first Qi-certified iPhone X charging case. Since the application, Apple has now launched three new iPhones: the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, but Mophie Support on Twitter confirmed that the new case is only officially compatible with iPhone X. One user asked about a

Mophie's $70 Wireless Charge Stream Desk Stand Now Available for Purchase

Mophie's newest wireless charger, the Charge Stream Desk Stand, is now available for purchase from the Mophie website for $70. Designed to work with the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, X, XS, XS Max, and XR, Mophie's Charge Stream Desk Stand is its first upright wireless charging option, designed to hold the iPhone in an upright vertical or horizontal position while it charges rather than a flat horizontal position. Mophie's Charge Stream looks a lot like Mophie's Charge Stream Pad+ or Wireless Charging Base propped up with a metal stand, and that's because it can be removed from the base and used as a standard wireless charging pad. The Charge Stream delivers up to 10W of wireless charging power, and it will charge Apple's iPhones at the faster 7.5W charging speed. A Quick Charge 2.0 wall adapter and a 1.5m USB-A to micro-USB cable are included to power the Charge

Mophie Launches New Powerstation USB-C 3XL for Charging Apple's MacBooks

Mophie today announced the launch of the new Powerstation USB-C 3XL, which has been designed to charge Apple's line of MacBook devices. The fabric-covered Powerstation USB-C 3XL includes a 26,000mAh battery that Mophie says is able to provide a 12-inch MacBook with up to 18 hours of additional battery life. It is Mophie's largest Powerstation to date. Though designed to charge the MacBook at full speed, the 45W Powerstation USB-C 3XL can be used to provide a little additional juice for the more powerful MacBook Pro models. Battery life won't go quite as far, though, nor will charging be as fast. The Powerstation USB-C 3XL can also be used to fast charge an iPhone 8 or later with a USB-C to Lightning cable, and there is a built-in USB-A port for charging iOS devices and other accessories with a traditional USB-A to Lightning cable. Mophie says the new Powerstation USB-C 3XL features Priority+ Charging that's designed to send power to connected devices before charging the Powerstation when it's plugged into a power source. Mophie's new Powerstation USB-C 3XL can be purchased from the Mophie website, from the Apple online store, or from Apple retail stores starting today, with the device priced at

Former Mophie Employees Launch New Eco-Friendly Charging Accessory Brand 'Nimble'

A trio of former Mophie/Zagg employees today launched a new accessory brand called "Nimble," which is aimed at crafting smartphone and tech accessories that are environmentally friendly (via CNET). Those behind Nimble include Ross Howe (Nimble CEO), Jon Bradley (creative director), and Kevin Malinowski (brand marketing), who were all originally part of Mophie when the company merged with Zagg in 2016. The creators of Nimble say they didn't mesh with the company following the Zagg merger, and left in March 2018. Now, the Nimble brand will sell products that are similar to Mophie's devices, including wireless charging pads, portable battery packs, and charging cables. All of Nimble's products will be available on Amazon and its own website, but the company is avoiding retail outlets to reduce prices and compete with budget brands like Aukey and Anker, although they won't be quite as cheap. Nimble products won't be cheaper than Anker's products but CEO Howe says they're better. "With this model, we can make more premium accessories with premium features that cost less." It's something he wanted to do with Mophie but just couldn't quite pull off. Nimble products include a 10,000 mAh Portable Charger at $49.95, 13,000 mAh at $59.95, 20,000 mAh at $69.95, and 26,000 mAh at $99.95. Each of these support fast charging for iPhone with 18W power delivery, can charge multiple devices at once, and include a magnetic cable management system that attaches to the bottom of the charger. The other main product line is a series of wireless charging pads, including the Wireless

Mophie Announces New Apple-Exclusive Powerstation Portable Chargers With Lightning Ports

Mophie today announced the launch of a new series of iPhone-exclusive Powerstation models, which are equipped with a Lightning port to allow them to be recharged using a Lightning cable rather than a traditional micro-USB cable. With the ability to charge over Lightning, customers who purchase one of the new Lightning-equipped Mophie Powerstations will be able to charge their iPhones and their portable charger using the same cable. Mophie is offering several new Powerstation options, with varying battery capacities and price points: Powerstation Plus ($79.95) - 6040mAh with built-in Lightning connector and a single USB port. Available in heather gray, slate, and black. Powerstation Plus XL ($99.95) - 10,000mAh with built-in Lightning connector and a single USB port. Available in heather gray, slate, black, and deep blue. Qi wireless charging is included, allowing the Powerstation Plus XL to be recharged via a Qi-based wireless charger. Powerstation ($59.95) - 6,040mAh with two USB ports for charging two devices at once. Available in indigo blue and millennial pink. Powerstation XXL ($99.95) - 20,200mAh with three USB ports for charging three devices at once. Available in black. The Powerstation and Powerstation XXL, designed for use with iPhone, iPad, and AirPods, offer up an extra 20 and 70 hours of iPhone battery life, respectively, and come in an aluminum design. The Powerstation Plus and Powerstation Plus XL offer built-in Lightning connectors, alleviating the need to supply your own Lightning cable for charging purposes. Both of these

Mophie Launches New Wireless Charging Kit Designed for Travel

Mophie today announced the launch of the Charge Stream Travel Kit, which is a wireless charging kit that's designed for use while traveling, as the name suggests. Designed for the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus, as well as other Qi-enabled devices, the Charge Stream Travel Kit includes a 5W Charge Stream Pad Mini, which is a wireless charger that can also be purchased separately, paired with a 2.4A wall adapter, a 2.4A car adapter, and a 1.5-foot USB-A to micro-USB cable. All of the components for the travel kit come in a handy case that keeps them all together and that can be easily stowed in a backpack or a car. The Charge Stream Pad Mini is a 5W charger, which means it's not going to charge the iPhone X, 8, and 8 Plus at the faster 7.5W charging speed. Design wise, the Charge Stream Pad Mini is compact and slightly elevated with a low profile design that works anywhere. It includes a non-slip rubber grip to keep your iPhone in place. Mophie is charging $49.95 for the Charge Stream Travel Kit on its website and the Charge Stream Mini Pad can also be purchased separately for

Mophie Launches New $60 Wireless Charge Stream Pad+ With Fast Charge Functionality

Mophie today announced the launch of a new Qi wireless charger for Apple's iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X, the Mophie Charge Stream Pad+. Mophie says the Charge Stream Pad+ is its first universal high-speed wireless charging accessory, compatible with the fast charging capabilities of both Apple and Samsung devices. For Apple's most recent iPhones, that means the Charge Stream Pad+ supports the faster 7.5W charging introduced back in December. Mophie's existing wireless charger, the Wireless Charging Base, also supports 7.5W charging. Smart charging circuitry inside of the Charge Stream Pad+ communicates with an iPhone or other smartphone to determine and deliver the optimal amount of power. Design wise, the Charge Stream Pad+ looks like your average Qi-based wireless charger, with a circular flat base where you rest your phone. A non-slip rubberized finish makes sure your iPhone stays in place, and it also ships with a wall adapter and USB-A to microUSB cable. It comes in black or white to match any decor. The Mophie Charge Stream Pad+ is also compatible with all Charge Force Mophie Juice Pack battery cases designed for the iPhone and for Samsung smartphones, such as the Juice Pack Air for the iPhone 7, which enables wireless charging. The Charge Stream Pad+ can be purchased from the Mophie website for

Mophie's Upcoming Juice Pack Air is First Qi-Certified iPhone X Charging Case

Accessory company Mophie has applied to the Wireless Power Consortium for an accessory it calls the "Juice Pack Air for iPhone X." Spotted by Mac Otakara [Google Translate] in the WPC's Qi Certified Product Database, Mophie was granted a certification for the accessory today, March 5, suggesting the iPhone X accessory could be announced in the near future and then be available to purchase sometime later this year. While there are already iPhone X battery cases on the market, Mophie's accessory is the first to be Qi-certified by the WPC. This certification program encourages manufacturers to submit verification that their products comply with the latest Qi specifications, and subsequently allows customers more peace of mind when purchasing products, knowing that they will support devices like the iPhone X, 8, and 8 Plus.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Powerstation USB-C XXL From Mophie

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Mophie to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a powerstation USB-C XXL that's equipped with both USB-C and USB-A, so it can be used with a wide range of devices. The powerstation USB-C XXL, priced at $149.95, features a 19,500 mAh battery, which Mophie says is enough juice to provide USB-C laptops (the MacBook specifically) with up to 14 hours of additional battery life. Because it has both a USB-C and a USB-A port, the USB-C XXL can be used to charge all of your Apple devices, from the MacBook to the iPhone and iPad. The USB-C port offers up to 30W of charging, so it can fast charge your iPhone X, iPhone 8, or iPhone 8 Plus when combined with a USB-C to Lightning cable. With fast charging, an iPhone X, iPhone 8, or iPhone 8 Plus can charge to 50% within 30 minutes, so that's a super handy feature to have available from a portable battery back. At 30W, this charger will work with the 13 and 15-inch MacBook Pro models, but the charging will go more slowly and you won't see much gain while the machines are in use. Over a standard USB-A to Lightning or micro-USB, the powerstation USB-C XXL offers 2.4A quick charging capabilities to charge your devices faster. Size wise, the powerstation USB-C XXL is heftier than your average iPhone battery pack, but it's still portable at 6 inches long, 3 inches wide, and an inch tall, plus it looks quite nice with its fabric-wrapped body. We have four powerstation USB-C XXL units to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below
