    Volume buttons on right side

    Looking at the lower half of the Juice Pack, you will find buttons for the volume controls on the upper right side. A micro-USB port is on the bottom, matching the micro-USB port on the HTC One.

    IR port is usable on top button

    If your HTC One is in the case when you plug it in, then you will see that both the HTC One and Mophie charge up. There are also four metal contacts on the bottom, and I understand this is for a possible desktop dock launching in the future.

    Bottom openings and contacts

    The Mophie Juice Pack for the HTC One is an attractive, well-designed case and external battery solution. Road warriors will enjoy the added power and convenience provided, and I imagine these will sell well at airports. I look forward to checking out the silver model to see what looks best with my HTC One and plan to pick one up for myself so I can rest assured I will always have available charge on my HTC One.

  • I'd much rather

    just have a phone with a removable battery so I can just put a bigger battery in it, rather than screw around with these bulky cases

    • battery

      well wont a removable battery be much more of a pain since one would have to turn off the phone, remove the cover, remove and replace the battery, replace the cover then turn on the phone and wait for it to boot up? I'm not sure how long it would take for the phone to be ready to use again, however, with the mophie case, one need only slide the phone in and its ready to go. no need to shut off the phone and restart. its just like plugging in the power cable--takes only a few seconds.

  • Mophie Juice Pack battery case for the HTC One.

    Mophie products are quality as well as functional. I looked into purchasing their newest offering for my new HTC One. I figured I might as well have the add-on benefit of "doubling my battery capacity" as well as the phone being in a truly beautifully designed case at the same time. However, the battery case 'adds' at least another 1/2" or 12.7 mm to the overall length of the phones exterior dimensions. Which is fine if your just "carrying" the phone in-pocket or purse, whatever. But I, like so many others "carry" my phone in-case clipped onto my belt.
    I just bought 4 cases for the HTC One that are manufactured to hold the phone with a maximum length allowed of 5.41" ( HTC One size specifications:137.4 x 68.2 x 9.3 mm (5.41 x 2.69 x 0.37 in).
    Mophie Specs. with HTC One inserted ( Dimensions: 2.88 in x 6.06 in x 0.67 in )
    I suppose cases could be "found" that would 'accommodate' the pairing but, and that's a "Big" but. How would I walk?
    Great product, otherwise.

  • battery of course

    Not sure how much is this Mophie thing, but a spare battery for phones with removable ones is about $3-5, buy a couple, keep one in a car, another at work and you always good to go.

  • instead, how about

    Just getting a good external battery pack? Ravpower has a great 10,400MaH one for about $40 on amazon or newegg. a 1amp and 2amp usb port, so you can even charge (or at least balance out usage) on two devices. There's dozens of others out there also. I use it for Ingress and will last me nearly a full day with my HTC ReZound.. and that's almost nonstop, heavy use

  • Definintely do not buy this product till quality issues are resolved.

    The HTC One Mophie battery pack has "serious quality and design flaws". Do not buy it, I have had 5 in 4 weeks, and issues range from the connector at the bottom being to short to charge it or a defect that makes the Mophie not remember it has charge, have to plug it in 3 seconds to make it remember it is full to be able to use it. of my first 5, 3 had the short connector issue and 2 had the other issue. and Sprint even put it on another HTC, to verify it was truly a Mophie case issue.
