Mophie has unveiled its latest battery case at CES 2014. The new case is designed specifically for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S. The case is called the space pack and it has an internal battery as you would expect from mophie.
That internal battery promises to double the runtime of the iPhone. What you don’t expect the case to have is its own internal storage. The case will come in two versions with one having 16GB of storage and the other having 32GB of storage. The idea is that the user will be able to transfer photos, video, and other content from their iPhone to the space pack to free up iPhone storage.
“We wanted to create a product that enables iPhone users to truly enhance their experience by solving some of the core limitations of smartphones,” said mophie CEO and Co-Founder, Daniel Huang. “With an iPhone case that provides the charging solution and low-profile protective design expected from mophie, we’ve taken the next step and developed an entirely new category, pushing the increasing trend toward mobile computing even further.”
If you have ever had to delete video or photos to be able to install an OS update you know what a pain shedding content from your iPhone can be. The space pack supports AirPlay. An app is available at no cost that makes it easy to transfer content to the space pack storage without a wireless network. The 16GB space pack will sell for $149.95 with the 32GB selling for $179.95 when they go on sale in March.
