Mophie today has released a new Juice Pack Air battery case with wireless charging for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. Mophie released the Juice Pack Access earlier this year. However, the brand new Juice Pack Air has a key differentiator in that it supports Lightning connectivity.
The Juice Pack Air features a 1,720mAh battery in all three of the new models. Mophie says that this may extend your battery life up to 34 hours.
The brand new Juice Pack Air is similar to the Juice Pack Access in many ways. Nonetheless, the Access features USB-C connectivity, while the Air case options Lightning connectivity. While the USB-C port opened up a broader accessory market, the Juice Pack Entry design left the underside of the iPhone open so users could access the Lightning port. The brand new Juice Pack Air better protects the bottom of the iPhone however switches to Lightning all around.
Wireless charging via the Juice Pack Air works on any Qi-compatible charger, but you’ll solely get 5W speeds. This means that once you’re charging both the case and your iPhone, you’ll notice extended charge time in comparison with faster wireless charging options.
The Juice Pack Air for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR is available immediately for $99 in black, red, graphite, and rose gold. The Sensible Battery Case for each of these units is extensively sold out, with Apple quoting delivery times in early August. You may pick up a refurb Smart Battery Case for the iPhone XS for $99 on Amazon, and for the iPhone XR at $80.
