Mophie is known for its Apple iPhone battery cases and over the past couple of years has been exploring unique ways to power your iPhone and other devices, including wireless charging and powerful external battery packs. The latest collection of cases focuses on modularity and is called the Hold Force Technology collection.
This collection is available for the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and consists of a base case with three options. Only one of the options is a battery option with the other two providing support for carrying credit cards, ID, and other items so that your iPhone, with Apple Pay, and one of these cases is all you need to go out and about.
The Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus base cases are each available for $39.95. The base case is a clear plastic shell case with an embedded center magnet section. You can choose from 10 different colors, five with center color bands and five with the entire back one color.
The Hold Force folio accessory is available for just $9.95 when you purchase a base case. It's $19.95 if purchased separately. There are three color options available; gray, black, and blue.
The small part of the accessory on the left contains the magnets that attaches to the back of the base case with the large part serving to protect your display.
You can insert up to three cards in the folio accessory. Small magnetic flaps on the right side also keep the top of the folio secured to your iPhone.
The Hold Force wallet accessory is also available for just $9.95 when you purchase a base case. It's $19.95 if purchased separately. There are three color options available; gray, black, and blue.
The wallet accessory is a simple idea with a rigid piece that has the capacity for two cards. It has heat sealed seams and is made of fabric materials. It's a fairly rigid piece with internal magnets to hold it securely to the base case.
The Powerstation Plus Mini battery pack is available for $39.95 when purchased with a base case or $59.95 if purchased separately. You may already own one of these small battery packs and if so then you can just purchase a base case and attach it when you want to charge up your iPhone.
Whenever I use a battery pack, I always place the battery on the back of my iPhone and try to secure it safely in a bag or coat pocket. With the Hold Force Technology base case you can now make sure that the battery stays with your iPhone and even hold it all in your hand for calls or internet usage if you really need to use your iPhone while it's charging.
There is a short Apple Lightning cable attached to the Mophie Powerstation Plus Mini so you can just pop it out, plug it in, and keep the battery secured to the back of your iPhone.
Three color options of the base case are shown in this photo. The base case is rigid plastic, with ample openings for the camera, flash, ringer switch, Lightning port, and bottom speaker. There are embedded raised buttons for the power and volume buttons.
