Hands on Review of the Mophie iPhone 6/s Juice Pack Plus and Juice Pack Dock
I was contacted by MobileFun.com from http://www.mobilefun.com/ who provided me with the Mophie Juice Pack Dock (http://www.mobilefun.com/52803-mophie-juice-pack-compatible-iphone-6s-6-dock-black.htm) or on Amazon at http://amzn.to/1WhGedE for this review.
I purchase the Mophie Juice Pack Plus for iPhone 6 (3,300 mAh) case on Amazon at http://amzn.to/1WhGn0J to go with it for this review.
The use case for me is travel. I often have to charge my iPhone in the afternoon when I use it during flights or long drives. In November of 2015, I made the trek out to Seattle (flights were sponsored by the awesome http://Tawk.to) and would have a 5 hour flight from Omaha to Portland, a 4 train ride from Portland to Seattle, long conference days with tons of phone use and not a lot of places to charge the phone and then the trip home in reverse.
During the test period, I would run the phone down to 20% with just the phone battery. The case has a switch on the back that then allow me to turn the battery part of the case on and rechange the battery. The phone would recharge within an hour or two depending on my usage. Once the phone was recharged, I would turn the switch off and allow the phone to run off it’s own battery for the rest of the day. The case also has a battery charge indicator what lets you know how much battery the case has left. In most cases, I still had half of a charge left at the end of a day. If need, I could boost the charge on the phone one more time.
Here are some of the specs of the case below:
- Talk time: up to 17 additional hours, Web browsing: up to 12 additional hours, Video Playback: up to 13 additional hours, Music Playback: up to 60 additional hours
- High-impact protection (Level 3) featuring carefully designed internal bumpers add extra support to the edges and corners of the protective case for unrivaled support.
- Powerful 3,300mAh rechargeable lithium-ion polymer battery
- Pass-through charge and sync means you never have to remove your juice pack to charge and sync your iPhone 6.
- Charge on-the-go! Provides your iPhone 6 with more than 120% extra battery, Not compatible with iPhone 6 plus
Gives very good protection to the phone. I never wondered what would happen if I dropped it. The case doesn’t provide front facing protection however. I would advise using a screen shield for this.
2X charge capabilities makes it a must have if you are traveling and don’t have the ability to find an outlet.
The case is slippery in your hand and throws off the balance of the phone. I am considering finding some stickers that can put on the outside to give it better grip.
The case is bulky because of the battery. Might be a tight fit in some places
The Audio jack requires and extension and another cable to lose. If you forget it, forget about listening to your music in most cases.
The Power switches from Lighting cable to Micro USB. Just bought all the apple gear for charging.
To use my magnetic holder for the car, I would need to stick the metal plate on the outside of the case
Price. At $65 to $100 for Mophie Cases, it might be out of reach for some
Great construction and well built.
Looks great sitting on your desk or where ever you put it.
Very easy to set up and use. The case fits nicely into the cradle
Price. The base along runs $50 to $60. Add another $65 to $100 for the case and it adds up.
