Mophie introduces the Juice Pack PRO, which is a dream come true for any outdoor enthusiast, or anyone who, for whatever reason, has a tendency to be rough on their iPhone. Boasting the largest battery ever included in a Juice Pack series case, the Mophie Juice Pack PRO has a 2,500 mAh battery capacity, which translates to a battery that can fully recharge your phone twice before needing to be recharged itself. This case is extremely compact, especially when you consider the massive battery capacity it provides.
All that is well and good, but what is really so amazing about this case is it’s rugged, heavy-duty construction. This case has one of my personal favorite ratings a case can have: The military’s own standard MIL-STD 810G. Which means that the Juice Pack PRO has been tested to exceed the standards for impact protection and dust/sand penetration set forth by the United States Military.
While being able to withstand significant abuse and punishment, the Mophie Juice Pack PRO does so without sacrificing aesthetic beauty, sound quality or accessibility to controls and ports. In fact, the Juice Pack PRO has been so ingeniously engineered that it actually improves the sound quality of the iPhone with specially enhanced audio ports that make your audio experience of your iPhone’s speakers a sheer joy, while still keeping dust and debris out with special water-tight materials, sealing and protecting the speakers.
The battery pack has a stand-by switch allowing you to charge as necessary. And the battery can be charged without taking the phone out of the case, and likewise, the iPhone can be synced and docked without taking it out of the case, via a special USB cable, which comes included. The battery can handle 500 full recharge cycles, which means that the battery will possibly outlast your iPhone, if you are like me and get an upgrade every two years or so.
The Mophie Juice Pack PRO is perfect for all you adventurer out there, whether you are a “weekend warrior” or a full-time outdoor type. But that’s not all! I’d say that this case is excellent for anyone who finds themselves in environments where their iPhone might be subjected to extreme conditions, whether that be a carpenter, a soldier, or even a parent with a houseful or rowdy kids. One of the qualities I love most about this case is that it has such a powerful external battery, without looking bulky or being so huge that it would deter folks who are interested in keeping their iPhone light and sleek as it was intended to be.
The Juice Pack PRO is available through Mophie, and has a price tag of $130.00. Not a bad deal, considering the high level of protection and the extended battery life it provides.
