Mophie’s new iPhone 6 case is waterproof, and it’ll give your phone a full charge

Mophie SpacePack front
Mophie is the undisputed king of iPhone battery cases, but lately it’s been venturing out into new frontiers with its products. Its latest iPhone 6 Juice Pack also happens to be waterproof, in addition to giving your iPhone 6 a boost in battery power whenever you need it.

The Juice Pack H2Pro sports a 2,750mAh rechargeable lithium-ion polymer battery, which should give you up to 14 additional hours of talk time, 10 hours of Web browsing, 11 hours of video playback, and 50 hours of music, according to Mophie’s tests. The battery size is identical to the one you’ll find in the standard iPhone 6 Juice Pack, but it has a secret ability that could make it even more essential to your average iPhone user — it’s fully waterproof.

The Juice Pack H2Pro has a rating of IP-68, so you can drop your iPhone 6 into a swimming pool and take a half hour to retrieve it, and your phone will still work. The case also provides protection against bumps, spills, and scratches, as the screen is covered by a protective layer. If you’re feeling dangerous, you can even drop it from a height of almost four feet and your phone will be unharmed, thanks to a military drop test standard rating of MIL STD 810G-516.6.

Now, most cases that provide this level of protection are terribly bulky and ugly, but Mophie’s Juice pack H2Pro still looks as svelte and sweet as the Juice Pack Air for iPhone 6. It measures just 0.69-inches thick, which Mophie points out is thinner than most external battery packs and just a hair thicker than a full deck of playing cards. You can still use Touch ID with the case on, as the home button and its fingerprint sensor are protected by a special membrane.

Mophie’s durable Juice Pack H2Pro is up for preorder on the company’s site, is scheduled to ship in late May, and costs only $130.
