Mophie Juice Pack for Galaxy S5 Coming September 8, Available for $99

galaxy s5 mophie

Mophie, leaders of all things attachable battery packs, announced today the availability of the Juice Pack for the Samsung Galaxy S5. I’m not exactly sure why it has taken them six months to make this available, but hey, it’s coming! Potential buyers can pre-order the GS5’s Juice Pack today for $99.95 at Mophie’s site with an expected ship date of September 8.

What is a Juice Pack? Put simply, it’s a case with a built-in battery pack. Mophie has made a living and name for itself by creating these cases for the iPhone, since iPhone’s don’t have removable batteries and people often need to charge throughout a day. But they have also found some success on Android, even though a handful of Android devices (like the Galaxy S5) have removable batteries that can be easily swapped without the need of a massive battery case. 

With a Mophie Juice Pack attached, users can expect up to 100% extra battery life. This particular Juice Pack is “armed with” a 3,000mAh battery and USB 3.0.

If you need extended battery life throughout a day and do not feel like hot-swapping a fresh battery every time you run low, think of Mophie.

    I’m genuinely 100% dumfounded here.

    How could their design team be so incompetent to look at the gs5 and apparently never see that they could just design a new battery pack that is also a new back cover in one piece that snaps in and replaces the existing battery and cover? Seriously? How? How did they miss that?

    I can only guess gross incompetence?

    • MistaButters

      I could think of one big reason why that wouldn’t work. What happens if you need to remove the mophie? With this design you can do that and keep going. With your idea, you’d have to have the original battery and back cover with you.

      Also, mophies are meant to be full cases as well, which would be a lot harder to accomplish as a replacement battery.

      • mcdonsco

        Maybe…but if you’re OK with the size increase enough to buy it to begin with, what would be the need to go back to slim regularly enough that that would be a concern?

        Plus, they could still have made it a full case too.

        • MistaButters

          I’m sure a slide on case (like they make) is a lot easier than one that has to pop into the back and also has to cover the sides, top and bottom. The pop in one would almost certainly have to be minimum 3 pieces.

          I know somebody with a mophie that only uses it a few times a week, so being able to take it on and off is extremely important. Of course, anecdotal examples are anecdotal.

          • mcdonsco

            Why would it have to be 3 pieces? One piece, battery and case together that snaps in.

            Anyway, fine on the remove part, but still seems like a rare use scenario to use it only sometimes.

          • MistaButters

            You couldn’t cover all the edges with a hard case that snaps on in the back. TPU you could, but TPU wouldn’t be strong enough to hold a massive battery in place. Or you could get one of those thin snap-ons, but they leave parts of the phone uncovered (usually top and bottom).

            But really, the hard part basically comes because you have to insert the battery part at an angle to get the battery to go in. You wouldn’t be able do that with a full case. Just think about it. The battery part would have to go in first.

      • JBartcaps

        What do you do with the flap that covers the charging port?

  • mcdonsco

    WHY ON EARTH didn’t they just make a new “back” for this phone that HAS A REMOVEABLE BACK!!! Instead of having it apparently plug into the USB port on the bottom of the phone?

    So now, instead of just having a much thicker phone, now you have a much thicker phone AND a much taller phone; wtf?

    What an idiotic accessory, my god, just DUMB. They completely missed what could have been a kick ass accessory…

    Will it remove the ip67 certification once I snap it on?

  • Johnny Steele

    I definitely helped a customer with a charging case for the Galaxy S5 the other day….I thought it was the Mophie. lolz

    if you need best andriod apps >hacking<apps>>>..you should get in ::

    Yep, I want to pay $99 to have my phone feel like a CB. “Breaker Breaker, 1-9″ GTFOH

    I’d rather have to charge my phone several times a day (not an issue with my phone) than have to deal with the extra bulk these battery packs have. Or better yet just buy a spare battery. This is almost as bad as having an OtterBox on your phone.

    • mcdonsco

      Yea, for $50 (or $25 with the coupon they always give you with a new phone) you can get the Samsung battery system which includes another battery and the charging enclosure for it…

      This is the reason that as much as I hate touchwiz, I will likely be getting the note 4…the convenience of NEVER having to charge the phone is just too handy for my heavy uusage to continue to pass up.

      In my jeep I have an in armrest charging port that is always on even when the jeep is off, just leave it plugged in and when the battery gets low, 30 second swap and back to 100%.

  • tspx23

    Just buy a galaxy Note instead.

  • Michael

    I need one for my g3!

  • T4rd

    Or you can get a Zero Lemon battery that has 3 times the capacity in the same amount of bulk for around $40.

    • http://thatgeekdad.blogspot.com/ Rob Delaney

      And then you can have a wire connected to the battery pack making things cumbersome. Or you can have the battery attached directly to the back with no wires and no hassle. This is about convenience and if you are a power user always on the go with no chance of a plug, the extra $50 is worth it

      • T4rd

        I’m not sure what you’re talking about.. the Zero Lemon battery clips right in place of the stock battery and uses the existing contacts with no wires to speak of.

  • Tony Byatt

    Damn…Convenience comes at a steep price apparently…

  • Matt Groff

    But does it keep water and dust resistant?

  • FortitudineVincimus

    Or spend $10 and buy a spare battery

  • Bryan Mills

    It sucks that Samsung has the money hat on them.
