Mophie intros a battery case for the Galaxy Note 8
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a successful high-end handset that somehow managed to help the South Korean giant to erase the complete failure of its predecessor from the memory of most people. However, its 3,300 mAh battery leaves a lot to desire for power users, although Samsung revealed that this power pack should be able to retain at least 95 percent of its initial capacity after two years.
Fortunately, ZAGG's brand mophie, the leader of the US mobile battery case market, has just unleashed the juice pack and the charge force case for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. They are both similar, but the second one is slimmer and has no integrated battery.
The mophie juice pack is a rather bulky case that comes with a rechargeable 2,950 mAh battery inside but also provides an increased level of protection from drops or scratches. This battery can add 36 hours of talk time to the autonomy of the Note 8.
The slimmer mophie charge force case has a thin design without any battery, but can use a mophie charge force powerstation mini when needed. The powerstation mini is a 3,000 mAh battery that can help the Galaxy Note 8 to last for 33 hours more than it would on its internal battery alone. After charging the handset, the powerstation mini can be easily removed to keep only the case in place.
The mophie juice pack battery case and the mophie charge force case work with all the brand's wireless charging accessories, as well as other Qi wireless charging pads, such as those public ones that can be found in airports. The prices of these new power accessories for the Note 8 are decent - US$99.95 for the juice pack, US$49.95 for the charge force case, and again US$49.95 for the charge force powerstation mini. Since the juice pack is already out of stock, it looks like there are a lot of Galaxy Note 8 users in the wild who need more autonomy for their handsets.
