How to Double the Life of Your iPhone 3G Battery

Those of us with iPhone 3Gs certainly know the pain and frustration of having no battery left. I misplaced my iPhone earlier, so I tried calling it. It didn’t work, since the battery was dead. I wish I had a battery pack sitting on it all the time. In the past, I have reviewed various types of packs and batteries that can be used with the iPhone. Thankful, the Mophie Juice Pack is now available for the iPhone 3G.

Juice Pack 3G is specially designed for iPhone 3G and has passed the strict over-the-air performance tests by an Apple designated test lab. As a result, the Mophie Juice Pack 3G has been officially certified by Apple Inc. as a “Work with iPhone 3G” product!

Mophie Juice Pack 3G also uses Apple designated connector, which can only be ordered through Apple’s certified vendors. This ensures its 100% compatibility with your iPhone 3G.

The Juice Pack is a rechargeable lithium polymer battery in the form of a non-slip, soft grip case.

The Juice Pack works very well, that’s for sure. However, it doesn’t give me the Macro lens slide-over that I love so much on my current iPhone case. For me, it’s a matter of do I want the Macro lens, or to double the life of my battery. The Juice Pack will definitely get a lot of use, though. If you are looking to extend your battery – to double its current charge – the Mophie Juice Pack is just what the doctor ordered.

How Are You Extending Your Mobile Phone's Battery Life?

I am still enjoying my iPhone, despite the fact that version 2.0 of the operating system has been anything but great. I’ve experienced a great degree of consternation over this device that seems to lose its power within hours. I know I could turn things off like the Bluetooth, but then what’s the point of having it? I’ve tried several different external batteries, and none of them have really won me over. So, I decided to try out the Mophie Juice Pack. It comes in several different colors, and has models available for all varieties of iPods and iPhones.

The All-New mophie ‘Juice Pack 3G’ is designed to more than double the time you can Rock, Talk, Surf and Send with your iPhone 3G. This is the first Apple certified ”Works With iPhone” attached battery in the world!

The Juice Pack is a rechargeable lithium polymer battery in the form of a non-slip, soft grip case. It extends the time that you can use your iPhone 3G in these ways (additional hours):

  1. Standby Time – Up to 350 hours
  2. Talk Time – Up to 6 hours on 3G | Up to 12 hours on 2G
  3. Internet Use – Up to 6 hours on 3G | Up to 7 hours on Wi-Fi
  4. Audio Playback – Up to 28 hours
  5. Video Playback – Up to 8 hours

When I’m out and about, I need something with me to charge my iPhone. I held out a great degree of hope for the Juice Pack. You simply slide your iPhone into the little Sled, and you’ve doubled the battery life for your iPhone. It doesn’t add too much bulk, even though it doubles the thickness. I like the sled, because it’s lightweight and doesn’t have the propensity for letting the iPhone dislodge accidentally. When the iPhone is sitting in the Mophie, the back is protected. You can slide it into your pocket with no problems.

The only issue I really have is that in order to use it, I have to get rid of my protective InCase. I am thinking it’s worth it to double my battery life, and keeping the iPhone protected at least somewhat. For $99.00, I think you’ll be quite happy with it.
