2100 mAh Mophie Juice Pack Plus Battery Case for iPhone 5 Review

Mophie released its first iPhone 5 battery cases soon after owners started to complain about the fast battery drainage of Apple’s latest smartphone. The Juice Pack Helium and the Juice Pack Air were the first battery cases Mophie has presented for iPhone 5, each different in terms of price and mAh capacity. The Mophie Juice Pack Plus is the latest battery case for iPhone 5 to join the producer’s offer and while it packs a 2100 mAh battery, it features quite the staggering price too.

Mophie advertises its Juice Pack Plus battery case for iPhone 5 to be the extra battery that “gives you enough power to push through the toughest days, longest flights, or unexpected deadlines”. And if the $119.95 isn’t a draw-back, then the Juice Pack Plus’s 120% extra battery could be exactly what you need to “power through the weekend”. The iPhone 5 power accessory features a 2100 mAh rechargeable lithium polymer battery that adds up to 10 extra hours of talk time and web browsing on 3G, up to 12 hours of web browsing on WiFi and video playback. 

In terms of design, Mophie’s Juice Pack Plus is a battery case for iPhone 5 that tries to keep it as tight as possible. The case is 2.63 in x 5.60 in x 0.70 in and weights 2.68 oz, so it is slightly taller and wider than Mophie’s Air battery case, but the curvy design on the back and the round edges hide its actual size, whereas the rubberized, shock-resistant band that surrounds the plastic case keeps your iPhone 5 protected from scratches.

The Juice Pack Plus iPhone 5 battery case is a lot similar with the company’s previous power products when it comes to its housing, where Mophie has included the Lightning connector, battery power switch and the 4 battery indicator lights. You will have to set up Wi-Fi syncing and connect the included micro-USB cable when charging the case.

We’ve presented you with iPhone 5 battery case reviews that varied in terms of price, extra features, mAh capability and design. Mophie’s battery products for iPhone 5 are always top of the list, but when it comes to the $119.95 Juice Pack Plus, there are other products for your iPhone 5’s battery that look, feel and perform better. You can invest only $69.95 for Phonesuit Flex Micro wireless battery charger for iPhone 5 with in-built Lightning connector and 2600 mAh capacity or $99 for the Duracell Powersnap Kit with wireless charging, 1950 mAh SnapBattery and 4200 mAh TravelMat.


  1. Did they solve the loose connector problem? The plug-in slot for the recharge cord was not reliable for me crapping out and not giving a good connection after 6 months on two different Morphie cases. Evidently after reading up on that, it was a very common problem.

    Has that been solved with the iPhone 5 version?
