Do you use your iPhone to track your workouts? I regularly use Nike+ for my running, and MapMyFitness for my cycling. It works great, but for longer runs and rides, the constant GPS use by these applications can really drain my battery. That’s where the Mophie Juice Pack comes in. This clever device is both a case and a battery. Once you attach the Juice Pack to your iPhone, you get about double the normal battery life. And you can still access all the usual iPhone controls, and even charge and sync the iPhone without removing the case.
Mophie Juice Pack extends the battery life of your iPhone
With the added thickness of the battery, I had trouble attaching my iPhone to my handle bar mount that I use on my bike. I’ll be trying out a new mount soon that accommodates a bigger phone. For now, the phone is in my riding jersey pocket when I use the Mophie.
So if you’re a data junkie who likes to track all the details of your workout, check out the Mophie! The Juice Pack Plus retails for $99, and you get get it directly from Mophie.
NOTE ABOUT BUYING A MOPHIE ON AMAZON: I bought my first Mophie from Amazon for $68. I thought it was a great deal until I realized that it was a knock off product and not made by Mophie! For instance, the buttons on the case were just glued on and not actually working. After reading the comments on Amazon it appears that I’m not the only one this has happened to. To be safe, I’d just get it directly from Mophie (or one of the cell phone stores like AT&T or Verizon).
