Motorola launches new Moto Mods: Incipio Vehicle Dock and Mophie Juice Pack
Motorola today released two brand new Moto Mods for its Moto Z family of smartphones (including the Moto Z, Moto Z Force, and Moto Z Play). As previously reported, the new accessories are an Incipio Vehicle Dock, and a Mophie Juice Pack.

Priced at $64.99, the Incipio Vehicle Dock supports Android Auto and features a magnetic phone mount, offering hands-free navigation and calling, fast charging, and audio integration (via Bluetooth, or an auxiliary cable).

The Mophie Juice Pack Mod costs $79.99 and comes with a 3150 mAh battery - considerably larger than the 2220 mAh unit included in the Incipio offGRID Power Pack (one of the four original Moto Mods released earlier this year). The new Pack supports fast charging (thanks to a built-in USB-C connector) and features an Efficiency Mode for automatically charging the battery "at the most efficient times to get up to 25% more battery life."

At the moment, the two new Moto Mods are available only via Verizon Wireless (which is selling three Moto Z Droid Edition smartphones).

With the Incipio Vehicle Dock and the Mophie Juice Pack, Motorola now has a total of six Moto Mods on sale in the US. Many more Mods will be available starting next year, so this is only the beginning.

I really like the idea behind moto mods. I have never used a Moto device before, but maybe 2017 will be the year that changes.

I wouldn't mind using the new moto lineup, but I am not on Verizon. Motorola needs to allow their phones on other carriers vs just one. I don't feel like dropping the money on an unlocked one at this point.

Motorola does allow their phones on other carriers. Check out their website. The Moto Z Play is $41 more than the Verizon exclusive model, and the Moto Z is $76 more. Really not that much difference for a $700 phone... All you have to do is wait for a sale and that will end up saving you money. I got the Moto Z Force for $150 off a few weeks ago when Motorola had a sale.

If any company ever embarrassed, choke slammed and schooled a rival, then that is what Moto did to LG in 2016. What a knockout!

Just ordered my car dock a few minutes ago. I always put my phone in a dash-mounted dock anyway so this will be nice to have one specifically designed for the phone. Also, it will be nice to have it lower on the dash so it's not sticking up high in my field of view and because it is lower no one form outside the car can see it so they won't be as temped to break in and take it. The first thing I usually do when I get in the car is to put my phone in the dock, plug in the AUX cable, and plug in the charging cable. With this I can do all three in one simple step by clicking in it to the magnets. Can't wait to see how well it works!
