Mophie's $80 Juice Pack Moto Mod integrates a 3,000mAh battery, launches late November


Mophie has just announced a new Moto Mod, a battery pack mod that integrates a 3,000mAh battery. Technically, the Mophie juice pack Battery Mod is compatible with any phone based on the Moto Mods 1.0 platform but what that actually means is that it's compatible with the Moto Z, the Moto Z Force, and the Moto Z Play. Mophie's Moto Mod will go on sale November 28th at a price of $79.99.

The juice pack integrates a 3,000mAh battery. Now, the actual percentage varies between the particular Moto Z model (Z, Z Force, Z Play), but Mophie's battery pack should provide about a 60% battery charge. The mod comes with a USB Type-C port which supports 15W fast charging. An LED power indicator displays the battery level as well as the charging status.

Lenovo's interpretation of the modular smartphone philosophy might not be the most futuristic one out there, but the end result is easily the most practical. Sure, a battery pack mod doesn't have the wow factor of a projector mod or a fancy camera mod, but when it comes to everyday utility, Mophie's battery pack mod for the Moto Z series could be a smart $79.99 investment.

If you could find use for Mophie's juice pack Moto Mod, you can already head on over to the source link below and pre-order your unit. Verizon says that the new Moto Mod will start shipping November 28th.

How fast will the juice pack charge the phone though?

It's pretty quick. You can have the battery trickle charge to keep the phone at 80% charge or you can pop it in whenever you need it and it charges up like any other external pack just a bit quicker but nowhere as fast as the plug in charger.

That is odd.. Only 60%?

Charger packs aren't 100% efficient, energy is wasted

Nut's I already have the regular Moto Mod battery pack from Incipio which was $80 ($60 after discounts). Sure it's much thinner and doesn't add much bulk to the phone but this capacity would be nice for those times you know you won't be near a charger for more than a day. I wonder if this will push the price of the 2220 maH unit down some once this is released.

If it doesn't have wireless charging to go with the battery, there's no point selling them.

Until they can match the speed of the stock 27W Charger, no need for wireless charging.

Wireless charging? If not, I'll stick with Incipio or Tumi. But thanks for playing!

But does it have wireless charging? If not I'll save some money and get the ones that are already on the market. Nothing new to see here.
