Mophie’s Helium series of battery-extending cases for Apple’s iPhone 5 are a no-brainer for power users who can’t get through their day on a single charge. The California-based accessory maker offers the Helium cases in three flavors: the 13 percent thinner standard-edition Juice Pack Helium with a 1,500mAh battery, the even thinner Juice Pack Air (just 0.63-inches thick) with a bigger 1,700mAh built-in battery and the latest Juice Pack Plus which rocks a 2,100 mAh battery, good for an additional ten hours of 3G/LTE talk time/web use.
The Juice Pack Helium Spectrum Collection for the iPhone 5 takes the original Helium case’s 1,500mAh battery and repackages it into five distinct color options: blue, purple, pink, green and red. The new colors feature a matte finish and jewel tone.
Also found on these cases: a standby switch, LED power indicator, microUSB charging port, 3.5mm audio jack, holes to access to all your iPhone 5 hardware buttons and a forward-facing speakers which redirects sound from the bottom of the phone toward the user.
Like the original Helium, the new Spectrum Collection is thirteen percent thinner than any of Mophie’s previous iPhone juice packs.
“It’s so thin, you won’t believe there’s a battery inside,” the company boasts.
In case you were wondering, the built-in 1,500mAh battery delivers 80 percent more battery life to your iPhone 5 – enough for an addition six hours of usage - while providing edge-to-edge protection against the drops, bumps and scratches.
No, they don’t offer a champagne option.
