Mophie has just announced its second battery case for the iPhone 5. The Mophie Juice Pack Air adds up to 8 hours of talk time or internet use on either 3G or LTE networks, and gives a 10 hour boost on Wi-Fi networks. Also, audio playback is increased by up to 40 hours, and video gets a 10 hour boost.
The refined outer band and smooth finish makes for a comfortable all-day hold while defending from everyday wear and tear. Integrated, pass-through buttons and proprietary mute switch seamlessly blend the design of the case with your iPhone.
The Juice Pack Air’s 1700mAh battery is rechargeable for over 500 full cycles. The case itself integrates all of the iPhone 5’s openings and controls. A port at the bottom of the case is for the headphone jack, and it has a microUSB charging port which, when connected to a power source, charges both the iPhone 5 and the Juice Pack Air.
Mophie says the Juice Pack Air is designed to act as a virtual speaker box, redirecting sound from the bottom of the phone to the front “resulting in a richer, fuller sound quality.”
Mophie released their first battery case for the iPhone 5, the 1500mAh Juice Pack Helium, earlier this month.
The juice pack air for the iPhone 5 is available for order on the company’s website for $100 and is currently available only in black. Mophie says red and white versions of the juice pack air will ship on March 22.
