Kalamazoo, Mich. — Mophie recently debuted a 64GB version of its Space Pack battery case for the iPhone 5/5s.
With switch-on charging capability, the Space Pack — said by Mophie to be the first rechargeable battery case with local built-in storage for the iPhone 5/5s — has a 1,700 mAh battery that enables 40 hours of music playback, eight hours of talk time and 10 hours of video playback. The increased storage space also lets consumers to hold up to 28 hours of videos, 18,000 songs or 32,000 photos, said the company.
The new Space Pack allows downloads from email and web and provides quick access to files through Mophie’s partner app, Space. This app is designed to help manage and organize what is in the Space Pack’s storage and to share files.
The app can shoot videos and photos with an in-app camera, and it will keep tabs on the Space Pack’s storage and battery usage. A four-digit passcode option prevents others from accessing files on the iPhone and external devices. Through connection via the MicroUSB cable, users are able to drag and drop files straight from a computer.
The Space app is available free on the iTunes App Store and is designed to work with iOS software.
The 64GB Space Pack is offered in soft-touch black for a $249 suggested retail. It will begin shipping July 22, according to Mophie’s website.
