iPhone 5 might be a great piece of technology but the battery life
issue does make it hard for a buyer to enjoy this device to its fullest
extent. With this iPhone release, Apple introduced the infamous
Lightning connector which not only made previous iPhone accessories
useless but it also caused a huge delay in the market, as new iPhone 5
battery case products failed to make it to the shelves.
Mophie Juice Pack Helium Case is the first iPhone 5 battery case to
actually market. Or at least that’s what we’ve been promised. For the
moment the Mophie Juice Pack Helium Case for iPhone 5 is available in
pre-order and it will start selling in Apple stores as of February 19.
This makes the Mophie Juice Pack Helium Case the first of almost a dozen
iPhone 5 battery cases that actually gets Apple’s OK to market.
for the Mophie Juice Pack Helium Case agree it is an iPhone 5 battery
case that will definitely satisfy the user, at least from an aesthetic
point of view. Their battery case for iPhone 5 is about 13 percent

4. That one was called Air, this one is called Helium, because Helium is

ounces, whereas the overall case is 5.49 inches long.
Juice Pack Helium Case has cutouts that allow you to use the iPhone 5’s

the Lightning one for charging and syncing. These are actually two
parts that snap together quite easy, not to mention you won’t have to
spend money on a Lightning connector compatible cable.
of power, the Mophie Juice Pack Helium case isn’t top of the market. It
adds to iPhone 5’s 1,440 mAh in-built battery enough boost for 7 hours
of Wi-Fi browsing, 30 hours of music playback, 7 hours of movie

maker, the Mophie Juice Pack Helium case will prolong your device’s
battery life by 80 percent.
The 1500mAH battery inside the
Helium case for iPhone 5 does deliver enticing results, but it’s not the
