Nowadays, our lives seem to be ruled by gadgets and technology. You really only have 2 choices: get with the Information Age, or go Amish.
Me, I’m down with electronics for sure, and I was fortunate enough to be born with that elusive “technology gene” where gadgets and gizmos (and VCRs) make perfect sense to me. The younger generations are also becoming more and more tech savvy to the point where nary a person on this planet seems to lack some sort of electronic device on their person at any given moment!
But gadgets are not infallible. As much as I heart my iPhone, the battery life leaves something to be desired. And if you’re an on-the-go gal (or guy) like me, there’s nothing worse than being in the middle of a happening event or a big meeting and having your smartphone die on you! ARG!
But spending hours on end constantly charging up your phone not only wastes time but energy too. Even just leaving your charger plugged into the wall gobbles up energy that could easily be conserved. Just because we live on technology doesn’t mean we need to leave T-Rex-sized carbon footprints in our wake! That’s where mophie comes in.
The company, already well known for keeping you plugged in and connected, has just come out with their Juice Pack Helium™ for the iPhone 5! Basically, it’s a phone case AND an extra battery all in one! Say so long to the days of your battery cutting out on you in the middle of an important phone call or while you’re taking pictures of tigers playing at the zoo (okay, that one’s just me). With the Juice Pack’s 1500mAh capacity giving your phone an 80% extra charge, you can gab on the phone or take pics til the sun goes down (or the tigers go back to sleep).
But that’s not all. The Juice Pack also serves as a legit protective covering for your phone AND it has features that enhance your phone’s speaker, among some other cool stuff. Best of all, it saves you from having to run to your wall charger every two hours. Just watch the promo video below to get the scoop:
The mophie Juice Pack Helium is now available for purchase through their website. Now I just have to get an iPhone 5…
