Email from MOPHIE (iPhone 5)

I emailed Mophie with some hope of getting information about a battery case. Not much info with the reply but still kind of reassuring...


Dear Customer,

We've had a lot of inquiries from our loyal customers regarding products for the iPhone 5.

We traditionally have always had compatible products close to the launch of our premier partners' products. We do our best to ensure we are always ready for what is released. It is our top priority and our passion.

We are working around the clock to develop new products for use with the newly announced iPhone 5. Please be patient and know that we will be announcing our products soon and you won't be disappointed.

In the meantime, please join our email list and you will be notified as soon as we have more information.

Thanks for sticking with us,


Staci Lajiness

2nd EMAIL:
Halloween general email about secondary battery options lol.

3rd EMAIL: Mophie introduced GALAXY S3 JUICE PACK!!! THOSE SOB'S lol.


4th Email: Well December is a few days away and it doesn't seem like Mophie will have a five case before Christmas. This 4th email just highlighted the deals for Cyber Monday...

Does anyone know if the Mophie battery case has a lip on the front so you can lay it face down without touching the screen?

The wait is going to be extra long if you are expecting a iPhone 5 compatible Battery Case.

The Lighting dock as of now is propietary and Apple is not willing at this time to allow accessory manufacturers to produce anything that works with the Lightning dock.

Yeah that's too bad, you would think that Apple would be willing to work with the more respected accessory companies like Mophie.

This is actually not true. There are several third party vendors that are already working on new sound docks etc.. I would imagine that Mophie will be allowed to purchase the license from Apple as well given their longstanding relationship with each other.

Your best bet would just be purchasing a battery pack to charge on the go.

Yeah this is definitely good to hear. You would have to think this would be the case....

False. Third party manufacturers have to go through an approval process, but Apple is by no means blocking them.

Approval/Blocking, whatever.

All I'm saying it's going to be a while before Lighting compatible accessories will be available.

But hey, if Apple all of a sudden approves everyone and their Grandmother to make the stuff, WOOHOO!!!

Anyone receive more/different information???????? Let us know!!!!

I got the same information, I bought a 6000 mah mophie battery pack.

Charged the iPhone 5 from 0% to 99% (I didn't want to wait anymore for it to get to 100%) in 2hrs 14 minutes and used 1 green led out of the four's worth of battery storage.

I was anticipating a new case as well but was disappointed when I only saw an advertisement for their old products.

Hopefully Mophie can stay true to the slim, light design of the 5. I have relied extensively on their case for the 4S, and now that I have grown accustomed to the 5, I find it unlikely that I would use a case that adds that much weight and bulk to the phone. I would rather carry a small external pack than constantly wield such a portly device again.

If they can manage to add even a few hours (3 -4) without adding much bulk, I would be interested..
