Mophie helium for iPhone 5 juice pack, now available for pre-order

Accessory company Mophie has announced its new juice pack helium, the first battery case for the iPhone 5 that went on sale last September. 

Known for its cases, Mophie has made the helium its thinnest and lightest juice pack ever by 13 per cent.

The company has packed 80 per cent more battery life with a 1500mAh battery into the case, adding six more hours of talk time, 30 extra hours of audio playback, and an additional seven hours of video playback, or seven hours of Wi-Fi internet use (six hours with 3G and LTE).

The juice pack is available on Mophie's website for pre-order for £59.95 and is set to ship to customers on 19 February.
