    Mophie today announced the Juice Pack Plus, a new 2100mAh battery case for the iPhone 5. The case is the third that the company has released for the iPhone 5, though this new $120 case has the largest battery of the three.

    The $80 Juice Pack Helium has a 1500mAh battery, and the $100 Juice Pack Air has a 1700mAh battery.

    Like the other cases, the Juice Pack Plus uses a microUSB cable to charge.

    The Mophie Juice Pack Plus is available for $120 in black, white and PRODUCT (RED) from Mophie's website and elsewhere.

    I like having a brick in my pocket. Actually, I have no desire for a battery case on my iPhone 5 like my other iPhones. The iPhone 5 has a great battery.

    I bough a 2200 mAh battery back on ebay for I think $30 (it may have been $35). I've had it for about 4 months now has worked perfectly. No problems at all. Why anyone would spend money on a Mophie is beyond me.

    Anyone know if this is available at Apple retail stores yet? I bought the $100 one maybe three weeks ago, I want to return this one and upgrade to the new $120 case. Also I know their return is usually two weeks, they know me well and also take my returns, I've returned iPads more than a month old while opened and used before

    Not sure if it's in stores yet, especially as they've just announced the JPP, so best bet is just to return it to the Apple Store to get your refund and hold the money until the JPP is available to by through Apple, or just order from Mophie directly.

    I am using the Lenmar Meridian 2300 mah battery case. I got it for $70 from Amazon. I a love it so far. It has more than doubled the battery life on my iPhone.

    This is what I usually get w/o the case

    ARGHHH.

    WHY DO THEY KEEP MAKING THE BOTTOM EVEN LONGER THAN IT ALREADY IS???

    The iPhone it too tall. Far too tall. Making it taller is terrible design.

    My Helium already has a hard time fitting in my pockets. I can't imagine this other than in a man purse or backpack.

    Why do they use micro USB to charge an iPhone case? Why not use Lightning which was made to out-perform microUSB?

    Thanks to the Mophie Juice Pack Air I have on my iPhone 5, it doesn't feel so tiny.

    It has the nice tactile soft touch surface that does _not_ pull lint out of my pocket, and it's very comfortable due to the convex back.

    Run times are amazing, yet I give them credit for going big and building this newest model for those who do flights across the globe and back in a couple of days as many international business execs do.

    When I go abroad three or four times a year, my flights are not as close together. Nonetheless I've been using Mophie's for some time now, they are just terrific. Fit finish and function fit for Apple. :)

    ----------

    Simple really, "Lightning" is 3 parts hype, 1 part performance :)

    I don't understand why anyone would spend $700 on a smartphone and then roll the dice on a product that will have questionable warranty and/or customer support, especially when said product has the potential to do significant harm to the phone's internals if it has any serious problems or wasn't properly designed.

    I see it as $70 worth of piece of mind that if something does go wrong, it will be sorted out in a timely manner and to my satisfaction. Not to mention that the fit and finish of Mophie's stuff is fabulous IHMO.

    Man that "case" looks awful. It doesn't even protect the phone. The sides and chamfered edge are all exposed. One reviewer called it a "battery backpack" for the phone and I agree.

    Waiting for the 1,000,000 mAh Mophie Nuke Booster. Sure, it adds 20 pounds and contains hazardous radioactive materials, but it runs an iPhone for 100 years without needing a recharge ...

    I am with you there, i want apple to produce its next iPhone twice as thick, so that the battery lasts a full day.

    Apparently only people who have the iPhone as a fashion statement (only getting it out and turning it on to "WoW" the unwashed masses) seem to get a full day out of a charge.

    Sold !! take my money !!

    That's probably the best idea but can't, or just don't want to, go another day without my Mophie. As someone who uses their iPhone a lot and had to charge during the day nearly everyday it truly is a great product.
