Cut the cord: Mophie outs wireless charging battery case and mounts for the iPhone 6/6s/Plus

Cut the cord: Mophie outs wireless charging battery case and mounts for the iPhone 6/6s/Plus
History has shown that if Apple doesn't include this or that feature in its iPhones, a bunch of third-party accessory makers will pick up the slack, and the latest line from Mophie only comes to confirm this. Wireless charging may not be the one thing that you have been missing in your daily interactions with your iPhone, but it is certainly a nice thing to have for some, so that's where the new Mophie set is aiming at.

After the juice pack wireless for Samsung's Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, now comes the same combo for the iPhone 6, 6s, and their larger Plus versions. The iPhones' new juice packs allow for pass-through wireless charging, in addition to the extra battery pack inside, and Mophie will also sell you Charge Force desk and vent mounts on the side, for a full 24/7 wireless charging coverage.

The new cases support the ubiquitous Qi standard, meaning you can use them to charge your iPhones sans cable at most airports, coffee shops and other public places that offer wireless charging areas. How much? Well, the wireless juice pack for the iPhone 6/6s will set you back $109.95, while the Charge Force wrappers for the iPhone 6/6s Plus will hit your wallet with $129.95. 

Fortunately, these prices include the charging base, but if you want the magnetic convenience of the desktop and car vent mounts, you'd have to shell out $64.95 extra for each. As for the battery case capacity, it's 1560 mAh for the smaller iPhones, and 2420 mAh for the Plus versions, which would provide for nice range extending of your daily operations with the handsets when you are out and about. Check out the promo video for the new Mophie wireless charging line below, and tell us if you'll be lining up to snag one.

I believe in realizing there is a better name than "wireless charging" lol. Definitely not wireless. Good luck holding a fat f***ing charging brick behind your phone while watching Netflix in bed lol

What kind of comeback is that? I can't imagine there's a large percentage of people who watch Netflix at home in their bed on their phone. That's just stupid. There are these things called TVs. Perhaps you've heard of them.

This is very stupid, having to use a thick case to be able to charge wireless

I think most people are here only to comment with any cost. Even risking to look ridiculous. How the hell is that cable attached to that phone in the picture, pal?? How is wireless charging useless? Maybe for you, but im getting more then 40 calls an hour. Sometimes i just wanna get out of the office because there are like 4 people talking in the same time. Or maybe i wanna speak something private. Why should i look for that damn cable everytime when i can just place it back on the pad, just to take it back 20 seconds later? How is this useless? Also, u can use this case in the car and so on. Jesus some of the guys here are so limited

Those people think. As long as a wire exist. there is no wireless charging. Even thought the phones charged through induction method.

I love my QI pad for my note 5. Yeah a lot of you say its not really wireless charging but my phone has no cord attached to the phone so that makes the phone wireless. One of the best $44.00 I spent. I do thank this one is cool in the car with the magnetic cover and pad. But that is way to much money.

The Qifull wireless car charging dock is $44. I have the vent mount, works great.
