Looking to extend the battery life of your iPhone 5? Look no further than Mophie's Juice Pack Helium. While it certainly isn't the first extended battery case on the market, Mophie has quite a bit of experience in the extended and portable battery market. Mophie says this extended battery case is their best one yet.


The 1,500mAh case will set you back $80, which isn't something to scoff at. For that, you get a case that is 13 percent thinner than previous Mophie cases and that will provide a reported extra six hours of battery life. The case will basically double the amount of power that the iPhone 5 has available to it.

Another nice feature of the Mophie case is that it charges via a microUSB and will charge both the phone and case at the same time. This has the effect of providing the iPhone 5 with a universal connector, something that many people would appreciate. You can pre-order the case, which will ship February 15, on Mophie's site.
