Mophie juice pack air iphone 5

The juice pack air has openings for your iPhone's camera lens and pass-through control buttons along the sides.

Running around town or running to catch a plane, there's one thing you don't need — an iPhone 5 with a depleted battery. Good luck finding an open outlet to recharge your phone in an airport, store, or city street! Enter the mophie juice pack air. This protective case features a built-in battery with enough power to keep your iPhone going for hours after the regular battery has run out.

Double your iPhone 5's battery life

Slip your iPhone 5 onto the juice pack air's Lightning connector and close the case. It's now connected to a built-in rechargeable battery that can double your reserve of power. That's enough for 8 additional hours of talk or Internet use, or up to 40 more hours of audio playback. You can set the juice pack air to keep your iPhone continuously charged, or with a button press recharge your iPhone quickly when you need it.

An all-access case

The juice pack air has a USB charging cable that can connect to a computer or USB-compatible power adapter. And good news — you can sync your iPhone through the air's charging cable. Integrated pass-through buttons let you control volume, mute, and power on/off. An included adapter lets you plug your headphones into your device through the case.

Features

Mophie Juice Pack Air (for iPhone 5/5S): The Mophie Juice Pack Air combines a protective case and rechargeable battery for your Apple iPhone 5/5S (not compatible w/ iPhone 5C). The Juice Pack Air has a built-in rechargeable battery which extends the battery life of your iPhone 5/5S for hours. The Juice Pack Air also provides a comfortable ergonomic design with the complete protection of a hard shell case with protective rubberized backing. With the Juice Pack Air, you'll be able to easily access all of your controls, microphone, camera speaker, and headphone jack (via headphone extension cable). It also has acoustic sound enhancing speaker ports for a richer, fuller sound quality.

Note: You will need to remove your iPhone 5/5S device from the Mophie Juice Pack Air in order to connect your iPhone 5/5S with an Apple certified product with a Lightning dock connector. You will also need to remove your iPhone 5/5S from the Juice Pack Air to connect your iPhone 5/5S to a home audio or car stereo component which allows iPhone playback through its USB port.

Extended Battery Life: Since it is designed double the battery life of your iPhone 5/5S, the Mophie Juice Pack Air is the ultimate iPhone 5/5S battery case for travel or business. The Juice Pack Air is great for when your iPhone 5/5S is drained of power or you simply one to extend its battery. When the iPhone 5/5S is connected to the Juice Pack Air, a battery symbol will appear on the screen and you will hear a chirp from the iPhone 5/5S; this indicates that the iPhone 5/5S is charging and/or using the power from the Juice Pack Air rather than from the iPhone 5/5S itself.

  • Talk Time: up to additional 8 hours on 3G
  • Internet Use: up to additional 8 hours on 3G or LTE, and up to additional 10 hours on WiFi
  • Audio Playback: up to 40 hours
  • Video Playback: up to 10 hours
Note: If your iPhone 5/5S is drained of power, the Juice Pack Air will first charge your iPhone 5/5S. If your iPhone 5/5S is fully charged, the Juice Pack Air will act as your primary battery and no power will be lost from the iPhone internal battery until the Juice Pack Air is depleted

Rechargeable Battery: The Mophie Juice Pack Air features a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery rated at 1700mAh. The Mophie Juice Pack Air battery can easily be recharged by connecting the Juice Pack Air to a power source using the included micro-USB cable. The USB cable can be plugged in to your computer or any "Works with iPhone" wall-plug style power source with USB output. You can either charge the Juice Pack Air with the iPhone 5/5S inserted or charge them separately. The Juice Pack Air comes charged and ready to go, but after the initial use, normal charging will take only 2 to 3 hours for maximum power.

Note: The Juice Pack Air is rechargeable for over 500 full cycles. So, you can charge your juice pack 10% of the way 10x before it counts as a complete cycle. After 500 cycles, its fully charged capacity will be less than 75% of the capacity when it's new.

Standby Mode: The integrated power switch allows you to put the Juice Pack Air in standby mode, so you only use the battery when you need it. In standby mode, the Juice Pack Air still allows charge and sync capabilities through the micro-USB port and still offers the complete protection of a case.

4 LEDs: Four LEDs on the bottom of the smart battery case keep tabs on how much power is left in the Juice Pack Air battery. The LEDs also keep you updated on the Juice Pack Air charging status when it's plugged in. The LEDs located on the back of the device will blink when charging. As the Juice Pack Air becomes more charged, the LEDs will indicate how full it is, but one LED will remain blinking until completely full. To check the battery status of the Juice Pack Air, press the button located on the bottom of the case. When pressed, the LED lights will illuminate for several seconds. Four LEDs means that the Juice Pack Air is fully charged, and one LED means that it is almost empty.

Protection Circuitry: The Mophie Juice Pack Air features built-in short circuit, over-charge, and temperature protection.

Did not work for me

Written By T. kirchberg, Pensacola, FL on Wednesday, December 17, 2014

I loved the look and feel of the mophie but it would not work for my 5sGold. The battery pack would not keep my phone charged more than 27% and mine came with an android charging cord. And therefore wouldn't fit into the unit.

Pros: Love the color and feel

Cons: Did not do as promised for my phone

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product is great! It has a very nice, solid feel to it and fits my iPhoine perfectly. It is great to have a sense of security knowing that I have a backup battery if my phone battery runs low.

Pros: Nice slim design, smooth texture, all buttons and switches still work with case on, fits great, charges phone quickly.

Cons: Slightly heavy, case charges slightly slow.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Most necessary support for iphone 5. I no longer concern myself with the length of time away from a charger. I like the fit and feel of the Mophie on the phone. Have not dropped it yet but if I do, I think it will fare just fine.

Pros: extended battery life, fit and feel around the phone.

Cons: not to sure the phone will ever get out of the Mophie without some serious tools.
