    Great for iPhone, hopeless for iPad

    • Written by from KANGAROO GROUND

    For use with the iPhone it is great, for the new iPad it is useless and gets very hot and only last a short time.

    Save your money if you want it for the iPad. Of course the packaging is poorly worded and tells you it charges the iPad. Only when you open it after you have paid do the instructions tells you it partially charges.

    Perhaps Apple need to do a little more research before more customers or mislead.

    Not worth it for New iPad or IPhone 4S

    • Written by from Buffalo Grove

    I bought the Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation to use on the plane for an upcoming trip to Singapore. Before leaving town, I decided to test it out, and was very disappointed.

    First off, using my iPad charger as the manual suggested took at least 5+ hours to charge the Mophie. I would tolerate this as I would have time to charge it overnight. However, when I used the Mophie to charge my IPhone 4S from a fully depleted phone battery, it took 3 hours and used at least 75% of the Mophie charge up. This is a lot less than the 2 full charges claimed by Mophie web site and other reviews.

    After fully charging the Mophie again, another 5 hours, I tried it with the new iPad (3rd Gen). After three hours charging the iPad, the battery was up to only 22% (from zero) and the Mophie was exhausted. The bottom line is it took a total of 8 hours to charge the Mophie and transfer the charge to the iPad, leaving a charge that is sufficient to use the iPad just over two hours.

    Needless to say, tomorrow I am returning the Mophie to the Apple Store.
