Mophie has announced the launch of a new battery case for the Samsung Galaxy S4, showing a commitment to the Android smartphones as well as the Apple iPhone products it already sells.
The Mophie Juice Pack for Samsung Galaxy S4 will give an 80 percent battery charge, says the company – equivalent to the Mophie Juice Pack Helium for iPhone 5.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is available in soft-touch black, white, red and pink matte finishes. A smooth finish and pass-through buttons blend the design of the case with the Galaxy S 4.
The ultra-thin, lightweight and low-profile battery case gives users a handy power back up, and also protects and cushions the Galaxy S4 from everyday accidents.
Key features of the Mophie Juice Pack for Samsung Galaxy S4 battery case
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is packs a 2,300mAh rechargeable lithium battery (actually higher than the top-of-the-range iPhone 5 Mophie battery case, the Juice Pack Plus, which has a 2,100mAh battery), that Mophie claims offers up to 13 hours of additional talk time, an added six hours of Internet use, 35 hours of audio playback and an additional seven hours of video playback, all with the flip of a switch.
The included pass-through, micro-USB cable allows users to charge and sync the Galaxy S4 without having to remove it from the protective Juice pack case.
A standby switch lets S4 users charge the phone only when needed. You can recharge both devices simultaneously by connecting the Juice Pack and phone to any USB wall plug. Connect to a computer to charge, sync and download photos and other files.
An integrated four-LED status indicator, located on the back of the battery case, tells users when the extra battery is either fully charged or running low.
The Juice Pack for Samsung S4 measures 2.92-x-5.91-x-0.66 inches, and weighs 4.59oz (130g).
”The Samsung Galaxy S4 has amazing capabilities and features that fuel its user’s lifestyle, yet also drain the phone’s battery,” said Ross Howe, vice president of marketing at Mophie.
“The Mophie Juice Pack delivers the extra power needed to let S4 users enjoy all it has to offer, including Dual Shot and Group Play, without having to stop to recharge the phone.
“And users can play to the max, because the juice pack provides protection against bumps and drops encountered along the way.”
