Mophie announced the new iPhone 5 version of its battery backup case. The case has an integrated battery, so you can boost your iPhone's usage without having to plug it into a wall or external battery.
Recently Mophie announced the Juicepack Helium, a light-weight battery back up case for the iPhone. Now the company is releasing the larger capacity Juice Pack Air. The Air sports a 1700 mAh battery, which is slightly larger than the 1500 mAh rating on the Helium. The result is a couple extra hours of usage. Mophie says the Air combo will provide up to 8 hours talk and Internet on 3G/LTE and 10 hours on WiFi. In exchange, the Air is just under 7 grams heavier.
The Mophie Juice Pack Air is available in black, white, and red case colors. It sells for $99.95.
