Mophie's juice packs for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge come with wireless charging support


Mophie has just announced a new juice pack for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge that supports wireless charging. This is the first Mophie battery pack that can be charged using a wireless charging mat.

The case maker says that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge juice pack is compatible with virtually any wireless base, including here Samsung's own models. Furthermore, you'll be able to charge both the case and the phone without taking the case off, although you will need to use a traditional microUSB cable for dual charging.

Samsung's own 'Backpack' battery case for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge also uses wireless charging but does so to charge the phone. The case itself has to be charged using a cable. 


Unusual as this feature may be, however, other cases with the same functionality are already available on the market. One example are Incipio's Ghost QI cases for the iPhone 6 and 6S series.

Moving past wireless charging capabilities, Mophie's juice pack for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge extends the battery life of the handsets by about 60%.

According to Mophie, the Galaxy S7 case will provide 11 hours of talk time, four hours of browsing, and seven hours of video playback. The Galaxy S7 edge juice pack is slated to provide 13 hours of talk time, five hours of browsing, and 11 hours of video playback. Obviously, that's on top the battery life of the handsets themselves.

Mophie's wireless charging battery cases for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge will set you back $99.95 each. As far as chromatic options go, black trims are available for both handsets, while the S7 edge version gets a special gold color. At the moment, there's no word on availability.

A $100 solution to a $10 problem any phone with replaceable batteries have.

I'm sure the S7 and S7 edge don't even need that case, there internal batteries should provide more than enough life for a full day or two.

My biggest problem is if I keep the S7 for 2 years I'll want to change the battery after a year after it inevitably loses some percentage of capacity, but to keep the warranty I'll have to pay whatever exorbitant prices a Samsung service centre charges.

wireless charging doesn't help after 2 years of heavy use.

Mophie cases are so ugly, I would never be caught dead with one of those ugly things on my devices.

Removable battery solves any battery issues outright. People don't get this, though

don't need removable battery for me... I need bigger battery only... if you change your battery on your phone you have to shut down and take if off and put it again ... that's annoying.... yes.. bigger batter life= better ... why? nobody want to shut down when you are playing game for changing battery...

Because you can go from 0 to 100% instantly and after let's say 1.5 year you can just replace the battery with new one, every battery loses capacity over time, this reduces costs of taking the phone to service

The Samsung s7 edge as 800 bigger battery even after 2 years that battery will be bigger than the included battery of the G5, and with all your battery changing your battery remover will have broken, lg always as hardware problem, yes or no and that without moving parts

Mophie will just have to wait till I move back to the iPhone, can't patronise them while I'm on Samsung...lord knows this juice packs are targeted at people who need deliverance from the wall hugging life of the iPhone user.

Omg it looks ugly. I'd rather carry a 5000Mah powebank,, than this hideous scrap.

They should have designed theirs to be more like the Samsung one. It doesn't have that huge chin at the bottom for the micro usb cable and pass through. Maybe they'll fix the design before it goes for sale, but I doubt it.
