Since the iPhone 4 form factor was such a radical redesign from the iPhone 3GS, one annoyance was that cases fitted for the previous device simply don’t fit the new one. Makes sense, but for us that meant parting with our Mophie Juice Pack, which we’ve been rocking for a couple of years. The great thing about it is that it’s basically a case that doubles the power of your iPhone, and it’s indispensable when you are out on the road or traveling. Mophie’s been saying that an iPhone 4 case is coming soon, but they’ve been scant on details, and it looks like a company called EXOGEAR has beat them to the punch with the Exolife iPhone 4 Rechargeable Battery Case. We’ve been using it for a while, and have our thoughts for you after the jump.
Since the iPhone 4 has a completely different shape than the iPhone 3G/3GS, all those older cases don’t fit the new device. Unfortunately, this also includes external battery cases like the Mophie Juice Pack. We’ve been waiting for an announcement from Mophie since Apple made the iPhont 4 public, but there really hasn’t been any noise from them as to when we can expect an updated battery for the iPhone 4. That’s where the Mili PowerSpring 4 comes in. It shouses a 1600 mAh battery which basically doubles the battery life of your iPhone 4. It’s available now for £54.99 (or $85 on Amazon.)
Okay guys, as much as we like our Mophie Juice Packs for keeping the iPhone juiced on the go, it’d be downright irresponsible of us not to bring this fantastic iPhone backup batery from Monoprice to your attention. The same company that brings you stupid-cheap HDMI cables is now selling a 2200mAh iPhone and iPod battery that’ll recharge your iPhone almost twice from near death, and the cost is only $15.23 - and it’s even less if you buy more than one. Sure, it’s fugly and nowhere near as sleek as a Mophie Juice Pack or Juice Pack Air, but it’s cheap! Sometimes that’s all that matters.
