The Mophie Juice Pack Helium is inspired by Juice Packs’ previous models, which is a good thing, as Mophie’s products have always been of high quality. This case is available in two colors: silver and dark metallic, and it is conceived from an inflexible plastic covered with a soft touch material. According to the Mophie Juice Pack Helium review this gadget is the lightest and thinnest Juice Pack, at 0.59 inch thick and 2.4 ounces.
However, although there is a Mophie Juice Pack Helium review which sustains that this case is very thin and light, this device is a bit long at 5.49 inches, which can represent a problem for shallow pockets. So, you might want to think about this aspect before deciding to such a product. If you consider that its properties are more important than its length, than you won’t find any issues. Another inconvenient element refers to the fact that the Power button is a bit too recessed, but this shouldn’t prevent you from using your mobile phone as you usually do, especially since there are cutouts for the camera lens, the Volume and the power buttons.
The Juice Pack Helium case features an interior with small silicone bumps that help you protect your handset’s back from scratches. It also incorporates a Lightning connector on the inside of the bottom portion, and a micro USB port on the outside. The manufacturers turned to micro USB port for syncing and charging due to the fact that they are more affordable than Lightning cables. The battery pack is placed at the top section.
Comparing to the other cases such as the Unu Ecopak Detachable iPhone 5 Battery Case this gadget has much more improvements, especially because the Unu Ecopack does not incorporate a Lightning connector. That implies that the owner has o carry his own cable with him. However, anyone who wants to make a Mophie Juice Pack Helium review, can notice a very important thing. This case features a smaller 1500mAh battery for the Helium than the 2000mAh battery integrated in the Juice Pack Plus for the iPhone 4/4S. So, the disadvantage is that it doesn’t add quite as much extra power.
Still, the Helium case is supposed to add about eighty percent, or 6 hours of talk time battery life to the iPhone 5. In some tests that implied making a continuous calls, the Juice Pack Helium added 6 hours and 20 minutes of conversation time to a dead iPhone 5.
