    Goodbye battery cases!

    • Written by from FAIR LAWN

    I am so glad with this design, primarily because I wasted so much money on buying Mophie battery packs for previous generation iPhones, only to see them go obselete months later and in the end giving them away to the winning bidder buying my iPhone on eBay as a bonus.

    Finally - a standard model that doesn't go obselete (unless no more USB) and is capable of dual charges, meaning, charging both my iPhone and iPad (or wife's iPhone) simultaneously!

    If you're in the market, DON'T buy the $20 cheaper one. It's DEFINITELY worth the extra $20 to get the model which can charge two devices at the same time rather than only one.

    I deducted 1 star for battery lifespan. Why? Well, because it will get you near a full charge, but not a full charge.

    Great for iPhone, NOT for iPad

    • Written by from KAHULUI

    Awesome for iPhone. It recharged my 10% battery back up to 100% in about 2 hours and still has half of its power left.

    Terrible for iPad. It took the charge from 10% and got up to only 32% before dying out.

    Both charges were done separately, so I'm sure if I charged them both at the same time, my iPhone wouldn't have gotten a full charge. Tablets require power the Mophie can't provide.

    Great Product

    • Written by from vancouver

    It's too bad people can't bother to read the instructions obviously you have to completely charge the unit first before expecting it to work. The product isn't meant to be used as an end all be all for fully charging your iPad/iPhone it will however save you when your phone battery reads 4% and you are trying to make a call or send some emails. This product is worth it's weight in gold ... highly recommend it!!

    Issues but works ok

    • Written by from San Francisco

    This battery pack works well and gives a nice big charge but I was underwhelmed by the manual and the cable that was included.

    Works great but a tad pricey

    • Written by from West Hills

    As long as you realize that 6,000 mAh will not fully charge an iPad which has a battery around 11,500mAh you will probably be satisfied with this product. I mostly use the juice pack to keep my phone charged up on camping trips (which it can do several times over). The product looks great and has a design that complements my black iPhone 4s. One star knocked off for being almost double the price of similar products available.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from parramatta

    I purchased this device because it is advertised on the apple site as “Quickly give your iPhone, iPad or iPad a full charge when there's no power outlet nearby” however it simply doesn’t do what was advertised!

    It charges the iPhone 5 without a problem but will not give my iPad a full charge as stated on the apple site!

    Plus it is advertised as pre-charged and ready to go; well it wasn’t and took about 4 hours to fully charge firs time?

    Very unusual for Apple to sell items that don’t match their advertising; they are usually very reliable and accurate with advertising to their loyal customers?

    No, it doesn't do what you think it does

    • Written by from Lethbridge

    Charged it up, plugged in my iPad. It "charged" the iPad from 30% up to 45%. Repeat. Got it up to 66%. Contacted tech support and was told that this is to be expected because the battery pack is much smaller than the iPad's battery.

    This product is described as "ideal for iPad". It says it "charges" the iPad. It doesn't say "It'll top up your iPad by a little bit". It's not even in the fine print. To not get fooled you have to know a priori the capacity of your iPad's battery, in milliamp hours (about 11,000), and compare that to the line that says: "large 6000mAh battery quickly powers iOS devices". And then account for, quoting the Mophie tech support guy: "the power lost during the transfer process, and the power used by the iPad during the charging process".

    End result: " ...we expect the duo to offer between 20-30% charge to the iPad". So don't buy this to "charge your iPad" because it just won't do what you think that means.

    Additional time on ipad 3rd gen

    • Written by from Honolulu

    I purchased this to extend my time on my 3rd gen ipad.

    When my ipad got to 5% of battery life remaining, I plugged it in and only got an additional 2:23 of life, until auto shutdown turned off my ipad, and that was with the screen brightness reduced to 50%.

    Additionally, If your ipad battery fully discharges and automatically shut itself down, it takes about 6 minutes after plugging in the juice pack before you can get it to turn back on.

    As someone else mentioned..... its ok if you know its limitations, but don't expect too much from it.

    alright

    • Written by from summerville

    Initially purchased keyring model it DIDNOT charge my smart phone, soooo back to Best Buy it went, exchanged for this device, I'll call MJPP. It charged my smart phone overnight, but was completely drained.

    MY SUGGESTION: charge you smart/cell phone to 100% and MJPP too before leaving home. when phone is at aprox 50% use MJPP to charge to 100%. recharge MJPP in the car if you can. will it charge your Ipad, I have my doubts.

    Works if you know it's limits.

    • Written by from Ridley park

    First of all I think people must be made aware that an iPad has approximately a 11,600 mah battery and iPhones have approximately 1440 mah batteries, while the mophie has a 6,000 mah battery. Also, battery to battery transfer of energy works best when the charging battery is lowest and gets worse as the charging battery fills up. So at most you're getting 50% charge out of an iPad and 4 charges on an iPhone. However that assumes 100% transfer which you can't get. If you want this to work best wait till your device is about 20% battery and plug it in for an hour. That should get you to about 80% + and you can do it about 7 times. If you try to go from dead to full you might get about 3 maybe 3.5 times. If you know the capacities and have realistic expectations this works great.

    DOA out of the box

    • Written by from Glastonbury

    Not sure about the qualify of Mophie any longer. I bought two of these - one refused to charge when left on a charger overnight (blinking lights but no indication of charge). Too bad because I'd enjoyed using Mophie products in the past but I will be switching when I purchase my next extended battery because I no longer trust their quality.

    Extremely handy external battery while on-the-go

    • Written by from Waterloo

    A superb external battery for the iPhone and iPad. Charges at 2.1 A, so it's as fast as an iPad wall charger. The casing is metallic and rubber and looks expensive and sleek. It can charge two devices at the same time, and has a few lights to show the remaining charge. It's a bit bulky but fits easily into a bike saddle bag or something similar. The capacity is 6000 mAh (the highest sold by Mophie) so it should be able to charge an iPhone 3 or 4 times, and that's consistent with my experience. However, the phone needs to be in sleep mode during charging or else it'll eat up the battery capacity a lot quicker. Does not support pass-through mode. Also offered in a ruggedized waterproof version from Mophie directly, although this one tolerates splash damage.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from Portland

    Wasted my time - 1 star for looks, weight and 'concept'.

    Unfortunately, it's not functional...currently on 4 hours for an iPad2 - Mophie's about to run out of JUICE and iPad's only at 60%. Bought for a Euro trip and was really hoping for the best - But not to be....it's going back today...

    Not sure what the 2nd port is for when it can't even get one done??!
