Mophie introduces new power banks with a sleek aluminum design and Bluetooth monitoring



Just a few weeks after launching a new slim iPhone 6/s battery case and power bank, Mophie is back again today with five new external batteries. We’ve seen a lot of power banks in our day – and regularly have deals too – but the new Mophie powerstations use an aluminum shell that, from pictures alone, standout from the pack.


Available in five different capacities, each model provides a different feature set focused on a variety of needs. The smaller 1X provides a 2,000mAh battery with speeds up to 1.8A. Going up to the larger 2X and 3X models provides 4,000 and 6,000mAh capacities along with 2.4A charging speeds, the latter of which adds a second USB port to the mix.


Mophie has added a couple of standout features to the largest powerstations, the 5x and 8x, including Bluetooth monitoring via the free Power iOS and Android app. The smaller model packs 10,000mAh of power, while its bigger brother has 15,000mAh. Each model has dual-USB charging ports and LED indicators.

Most of the new power banks are available for purchase today via Verizon Wireless, and will be coming to Apple Store locations as well. Pricing is as follows:

    Reminds me of the first iPhone

      For sure, a very similar design.

  2. Sebastian - 7 years ago

    Pretty expensive for such a simple piece of technology though.

    • r00fus1 - 7 years ago

      No doubt. A good Anker/Aukey power pack (which I think they even have 26K mAh batteries out there) can be had for about half the price. The more expensive ones (still only 2/3 the price) can output variable voltage and can charge an MBA/MBP (with appropriate connector cable)!

    ugggh, still no lightening port to charge….will someone please make a battery with one so I don’t have to carry a micro USB cable around?
