We love mophie’s products. A lot. We use them all the time and they have pretty much saved us at the last two CES events. Now mophie has announced the availability of their Gen 2 juice pack Universal line. The line includes an external battery collection that offers “more power, slimmer design and lower price points than their predecessors”. The collection offers three different devices— the reserve, the boost and the powerstation.
Here’s a quick look at each.
The reserve: ($34.95)
Need a quick charge to get through the rest of the day? The zippo-inspired reserve is the perfect solution. Featuring a 700 mAh battery, the reserve is lightweight and compact in design, and comes with a convenient key ring and integrated USB cable for easy charging
The boost: ($49.95)
The sleek, pocket-sized backup battery is also a convenient stand. Utilizing its 2000 mAh battery capacity, the boost has the ability to fully charge an iPhone.
The Powerstation: ($79.95)
The most powerful of the bunch boasting 4000 mAh, the external battery is the only one in the collection that can charge more than iDevices, but virtually any USB-enabled device. Capable of switching between 500 mAh, 1 A and 2.1 A charge, the powerstation can handle the battery needs of not only the iPhone and iPod touch, but the iPad as well.
All three look great and are available now at mophie.com and Apple.com. We have a review sample of the Powerstation on the way for review and will have it up as soon as possible.
