Mophie Juice Pack Air brings an extra 1,700 mAh to iPhone 5 for $100

Mophie が iPhone 保護ケース兼バッテリー juice pack air に iPhone 5 モデルを追加しました。Mophie の増槽保護殻といえば2週ほど前に「空気より軽い」過去最薄モデル juice pack helium が発表されたばかりですが、air for iPhone 5 はやや厚いかわりにバッテリー容量が 1700mAhとおおくなっています。
1700mAh のバッテリーで延長できる利用時間の最長は、3G通話が8時間、3G/LTEネット利用が8時間、WiFiネット利用なら10時間、音楽再生40時間、動画再生10時間など。


iPhone 5 の側面・背面をぴたりと覆う形状は juice pack シリーズの伝統。Lightning端子はケースのバッテリーに接続し、ケース下部の microUSB端子で juice pack と iPhone 5 本体バッテリーの両方を充電します。

塞がってしまうスピーカー穴は前面に誘導して、juice pack がスピーカーボックスになることでよりリッチな音質になる、としています。

そのほか背面のon/off スイッチ、白色LEDの電池残量インジケータなどもヘリウムと同等。

ヘリウムと比較すると、エアはやや厚く(0.63インチ vs 0.59インチ)、やや重く(2.68オンス vs 2.44オンス)なっています。ヘリウムのほうは電池容量が1500mAhで、3G通話や3G/LTEネットが最長6時間、WiFiネット利用が最長7時間追加。

カラーバリエーションはマットな質感のブラック、iPhone 白に近いホワイト、メタリックなレッドの3色。米国価格は99.95ドル。米国国内向けの直販では、いまのところブラックが7-10日出荷。残り2色は3月22日出荷予定。

なお juice pack helium のほうは、国内でもフォーカルポイントの代理店版が参考価格 8980円で予約を受け付けています。こちらの国内出荷は代理店直販で3月中旬予定。ほか の発売予定では3月8日。
