Hip Holster 6000 for Mophie Juice Pack™ Review

Mophie iPhone Gear

One of the most important accessories I carry day in and day out is the Mophie Juice Pack Air for iPhone 3G and 3GS. ($79.95) It is light, doubles as a protective case, and its 1200 mAh battery adds up to 270 hours of standby time, for 4.5 hours of talk time (on 3G) and more. It is a great accessory to keep around, especially on days such as today, when I will be out and about for the next 12 to 14 hours. There is, however, one problem with the case/battery- it adds just enough bulk and weight but I don’t always want to carry it in my pocket the way I would the iPhone in something like the Agent18 SlimShield.

That is where Mophie’s new Hip Holster 6000 for Mophie Juice Pack comes in rather handy. I was recently sent a review sample, so let’s take a look —

My Thoughts-

I’m not a huge hip-holster kind of guy. I tend to prefer the thinnest, lightest case possible and then keep my iPhone in my pocket.

That isn’t so practical with the Mophie on the iPhone, however, and this is a simple, practical solution to that problem.

The case is made from nice leather and fit and finish are what you would expect from a company like Mophie- excellent. The back of the holster has a belt clip. It does not rotate or lock over your belt, but it does look like it will hold up quite well.

The iPhone is held inside by a magnetically secured cover. Once there it isn’t going anywhere!

In all the Mophie Hip Holster 6000 for Mophie Juice Pack is a good solution if you use any Mophie battery on a daily basis. It does what it says and does so with excellent quality and at a reasonable price.

What I Like: Holds iPhone and Mophie battery securely, good materials and finish

What Needs Improvement: I would like to see the clip ratchet in either direction and clip more securely to a belt. These are small concerns however.

You can order the Hip Holster 6000 for Mophie Juice Pack  directly from Mophie for an MSRP of $29.95.
