Mophie Juice Pack Reserve
by Mark R
Mophie is most famous for their Juice Pack Air, a protector/case that also serves as portable battery for an iDevice.
The Juice Pack Reserve is also designed to give an iPhone or iPod an extended battery life, but it isn’t a case. It uses a Zippo construction. The “Zippo” is the company’s own words, and it definitely looks like one of those flip-top metal lighters.
As you can see, the top flips off to reveal a 30 pin connector. Once this is plugged in, the Apple iDevice user is treated to 700mAh of battery power. That is enough for a quick charge, when you need it, and it is quite light.
I’m sure that you can see the keychain ring, showing it is light enough to keep in your pocket or purse with your keys. What you can’t see is that the bottom of unit pops out to reveal a USB plug. This is how you charge its battery, and it is ultra fast.
If you want to get one of these, you will have to wait a few days, as the Reserve won’t ship until September 30th. The Mophie Juice Pack Reserve is available for pre-order on the official Mophie web site, for a price of $34.95.
