Mophie Juice Pack Helium (for iPhone 5/5S): The Mophie Juice Pack Helium combines a
protective case and rechargeable battery for your Apple iPhone 5/5S (not
compatible with iPhone 5C). The Juice Pack
Helium has a built-in rechargeable battery which extends the battery life of your
iPhone 5/5S for hours. The Juice Pack Helium also provides an ultra-slim design with the complete protection of a hard shell case with protective
rubberized backing. With the Juice Pack Helium, 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 Helium 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 Helium to connect your iPhone 5/5S to a
home audio or car stereo component which allows iPhone playback through its
Extended Battery Life: Since it is designed to extend the
battery life of your iPhone 5/5S by up to 80%, the Mophie Juice Pack Helium is the ultimate
iPhone 5/5S battery case for travel or business. The Juice Pack Helium 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 Helium, 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 Helium rather than from the iPhone 5/5S itself.
- Talk Time: up to additional 6 hours on 3G
- Internet Use: up to additional 6 hours on 3G or LTE,
and up to additional 7 hours on WiFi

- Video Playback: up to 7 hours
Note: If your iPhone 5/5S is drained of power, the Juice Pack
Helium will first charge your iPhone 5/5S. If your iPhone 5/5S is fully charged, the
Juice Pack Helium will act as your primary battery and no power will be lost
from the iPhone internal battery until the Juice Pack Helium is depleted
Rechargeable Battery: The Mophie Juice Pack Helium features a
rechargeable lithium-polymer battery rated at 1500mAh. The Mophie Juice Pack
Helium battery can easily be recharged by connecting the Juice Pack Helium 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 Helium with the iPhone 5/5S inserted
or charge them separately. The Juice Pack Helium comes charged and ready to go, but
after the initial use, normal charging will take only 2 to 3 hours for maximum
Note: The Juice Pack Helium 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 Helium in standby mode, so you only use the battery when you need
it. In standby mode, the Juice Pack Helium 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 Helium battery. The LEDs also
keep you updated on the Juice Pack Helium charging status when it's plugged in. The
LEDs located on the back of the device will blink when charging. As the Juice
Pack Helium 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 Helium, 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 Helium is fully charged, and one LED means that it is almost
