Zagg has acquired popular battery case maker Mophie, the two companies announced on Tuesday. The Utah-based accessory giant has agreed to pay $100 million for Mophie, plus any EBITDA adjustments over that amount for the next year, in cash and debt.
In a press release sent out this afternoon, Zagg said that the transaction will leverage the unique strength of two “industry leaders” in the mobile accessories sector to create a business with greater product diversification and improved operational capabilities.
Accessory maker Mophie today announced a refreshed edition of its Powerstation external battery packs for charging mobile devices.
The 3rd generation, aluminum-clad Powerstation is Mophie’s thinnest and lightest yet.
The smallest measures just 6.9mm thick and the largest is only 12.1mm deep. Prices range from $39.95 for the baseline model and go all the way up to $149.95 for the flagship Powerstation 8X that packs in a 15,000 mAh battery.
On Tuesday, California-based accessory maker Mophie announced its first ever waterproof battery cased called the “Juice Pack H2PROTM.” The case is made for the iPhone 6, and features a durable design to protect against drops, dust, dirt and of course, water damage.
The battery pack included in the case is of the 2,750mAh lithium-ion variety, which will allow users to enjoy up to 14 hours of additional talk time, 10 hours of web browsing and 50 hours of music. Mophie says overall, the H2PROTM more than doubles iPhone battery life.
If I had to guess, I’d bet that a lot of iPhone users charge their device at night, next to their bed. Doing so serves two purposes. You can charge your iPhone through the night while you sleep, and you can use it as an alarm clock. When docked, it could also serve as a display for relaxation images and late night talk show viewing.
The Lightning Desktop Dock from Mophie is a stand that is compatible with the iPhone 5, 5s, 5c, and 6. Connect your device to the dock and it will charge all night while you watch movies in portrait mode until you fall asleep.
Renowned accessory maker Mophie is out of the gate with the first ‘Made for iPhone’ licensed battery cases for Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Their new Juice Pack protective battery cases promise to boost the run time of your iPhone 6 by 120 percent, or up to sixty percent in the case of the larger iPhone 6 Plus which already packs a notably stronger battery than its 4.7-inch sibling.
The California-based company said the new cases for Apple’s last handsets are now available for pre-order.
As Samsung’s latest ‘Wall Huggers’ Galaxy ad suggests – you, sir, are constantly on the lookout for power outlets and tethered to the wall because there’s no way you could replace that sealed battery with a spare one. If that ad hit a nerve, why not consider a battery pack for your device?
Accessory maker Mophie has just what you need.
Not only does its Space Pack iPhone 5/5s case double your iPhone’s runtime with a built-in 1700mAh battery, the 16 or 32 gigabytes of on-board flash chips increase your iPhone’s own built-in storage.

Mophie added a new edition to its family of popular Juice Pack iPhone cases today. It’s called the Space Pack, and just like Mophie’s other cases, it features a built-in battery that can essentially double your iPhone’s battery life.

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.
And now, in time for Apple’s September 10 big reveal of the colorful iPhone 5S/5C, Mophie has introduced a burst of color options…
Fans of Mophie’s popular Juice Pack Air line will be happy to hear that the company has just announced a new, thinner model for Apple’s latest handset. This is the first significant update to the line in two years.
Aside from the prestige of its highly-regarded creators, the major selling point for the new Air is its size—it’s both thinner and lighter than its predecessor, measuring in at just 0.63-inches thick…
