If you have an iPhone, iPod or iPad, you’ll know how much these devices suck in terms of battery life. My day to day mobile phone/Internet device/second brain is an iPhone 4S, and the thing barely gets through a full work day. Imagine if you had to survive for several days without power – how would you keep your iPhone charged?
The Mophie Juice Pack Pro is a fantastic solution if you have a single iPhone that needs charging and protection. But what if you had more than 1 iPhone to charge, or if you had multiple iOS devices? For example, I have both an iPhone and an iPad.
The Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation Pro External Battery packs 6000mAh of recharging ability in a ruggedized package. This battery pack can recharge your iPhone for about 4 times. Aside from Apple’s devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod), it can also charge other smartphones like Android devices and Blackberries, too.
How rugged is the Powerstation Pro? With a rating of IP-65, it has been tested using international standards for dust and water resistance. The rubber outer shell has an impact & splash resistant design, with water tight USB ports. It’s totally dust proof, and should survive a stint in the rain (although not submerged in water).
You can buy the Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation Pro 6000mAh Ruggedized External Battery from Amazon at around US$120.
If you don’t need a rough-n-tough version, you can buy the plain vanilla Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation from Amazon. It’s around US$60.
