We’re nearly at the 5-month mark from when the iPhone 5 officially launched in the U.S. this past September, and with it, the release of a completely new dock connector. The Lightning connector made the dock connector for the iPhone 5 and future iOS devices much smaller, but it also made the majority of our third-party accessories obsolete. There have yet to be as many battery packs or battery cases as there were for iOS devices below the iPhone 5, but Mophie is announcing a new battery case that brings its Juice Pack series of cases to the iPhone 5.
The Mophie Juice Pack Helium comes with a Lightning connector so it can attach its 1,500mAh battery to your iPhone 5 with ease. Mophie says its Juice Pack Helium will add an additional six hours of talk time on 3G or six hours of browsing while connected to either LTE or 3G to your iPhone 5. One new feature of the Juice Pack Helium is the ability to charge both the battery case as well as your iPhone at the same time with Lightning connector.
The Mophie Juice Pack Helium will begin to ship starting next week and will cost $79.95.
