Mophie announces iPhone 6 and 6 Plus battery-pack cases

Preorders can be made on Mophie's website

If you’re as iPhone-obsessed as this guy, this will make your day: 

Mophie, the well-known maker of iPhone cases that also double as external battery packs to give your iPhone an extra jolt of java when the built-in battery needs backup, has announced the creation of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus cases.

The company has created three types of cases available for the iPhone 6 offering up to 120 percent more battery life depending on the model chosen and ranging in price from $99.95 to $119.95. Preorders can be made here.

Engadget senior editor Nicole Lee explained the differences among the three cases.

The Juice Pack Air for the iPhone 6 packs in more than 100 percent of additional battery; the Juice Pack Plus promises more than 120 percent, but is slightly thicker; and last but not least is the phablet-sized Juice Pack for the iPhone 6 Plus, which Mophie tells us is the thinnest battery case it's ever made. It does, however, only offer 60 percent of extra battery power.

Another feature that sets these Mophie packs apart from previous generations is that they're supposedly designed with rubberized points set inside the case to be more shock-absorbent, which hopefully means they're more likely [to] survive the occasional drop on the pavement.
