Mophie to bring out Juice Pack for iPhone 4?
Add-on battery maker Mophie will soon release another battery pack, this time for the iPhone 4. Engadget believes the accessory will arrive as soon as next week, priced at $79, or less than previous Mophie iPhone batteries. The newest product will reportedly double the iPhone 4's battery life.
Called the Juice Pack Air like its predecessor, it will allow users to plug into a USB charger and continue to sync the device with iTunes. It will have the familiar integrated four-LED status indicator, and a standby switch should cutoff the power flowing into the iPhone 4's battery. The 1,500mAh pack is surrounded in a soft-grip case that envelops the latest iPhone.
Mophie has built battery packs for other variations of the iPhone, including the iPhone 3G/3GS Juice Pack.
