Mophie is one of the original makers of the battery case for the iPhone and they’ve introduced their latest to the line: the Mophie Juice Pack for the iPhone 6 Plus. How does it stack up and does Mophie live up to expectations? Find out in the full review after the break!
The first thing you’ll notice after getting the Mophie Juice Pack for the iPhone 6 Plus is the sheer size of the box. A battery case for the iPhone 6 Plus is as you would expect: very large. For a 2600 mAh battery case, the Mophie Juice Pack is actually rather lightweight (even for its size) and easy to hold with the rubberized coating.
All that is included is the case itself and a micro USB cable for charging. Installation was as simple as it gets with the iPhone 6 Plus sliding into the bottom piece of the Mophie Juice Pack and capping it off with the top piece. One of the best things about the Mophie Juice Pack is due to the precise measurements and attention to quality, the iPhone 6 Plus slides in very easily and removal is an absolute breeze. There was no material leftover from the manufacturing process and every cutout and button cover fit precisely.
One of the only issues we experienced was with the 3.5mm jack opening on the bottom of the case. It is rather small and will only work with headphones that are smaller in size.
Daily use was great not only with the LED indicator letting us know how much remaining battery life there was in the Mophie Juice Pack, but also with the on off switch that it possessed which allowed us to turn charging on/off.
In our testing we did get about a 50% increase in battery life with the Mophie Juice Pack and loved every minute of it. Not having to worry about tethering midday or finding a wall outlet really saved us in several situations. The 2600 mAh battery on the Mophie Juice Pack strikes the right balance of extending phone usage time and added bulk. A larger capacity battery would likely degrade our usage experience due to additional weight (as the iPhone 6 Plus is already quite large).
Overall, the Mophie Juice Pack sets the standard again for battery cases and was fantastic when paired with the iPhone 6 Plus. If you’re looking to extend the life of your iPhone 6 Plus, the Mophie Juice Pack should be on the top of the consideration list.
