Mophie Juice Pack Air Handling & Performance

To case splits in two so you can fit your iPhone in, our review model was quite stiff, so a little care is needed. Once your iPhone is in place you can still use it as normal, there are built-in buttons, an opening for the camera, gaps for audio from the speakers and a hole for headphones. You might struggle to fit your headphones into the socket so there is a small audio jack included which fits nicely.

You can charge the Juice Pack Air with or without an iPhone in place. If you do charge it with your phone in both devices will be charged. Charging is via USB so you can plug it into your computer or the plug supplied with your iPhone. On the rear of the Juice Air Pack is an on / off slider, four LED lights and a button. Press this button and the LEDs will light up to indicate how much power is left in its battery.

To test we ran down an iPhone 5 so its battery was empty, connected it to the fully charged Juice Pack and left it to charge the iPhone. When charging completed the iPhone had a very impressive 92% charge.
