Long life battery for iPhone 3G
Mophie has announced the launch of an additional battery for the iPhone 3G.
The accessory, a sort of external shell that connects to the dock port and completely wraps the back of the iPhone, multiplies the autonomy of the phone. The performances are relevant: 350 hours in stand by, 6 to 12 hours (depending on whether you use 3G or Gprs / Edge technology) in conversation, 6/7 hours of navigation (3G or Wifi), 28 hours of audio and 8 hours of video.
The Juice Pack (this is the name of Mophie's product) cannot be said to be really cheap: $ 99.95, plus shipping, plus taxes and VAT if you want to buy it from Italy, but certainly a good solution for those who expect not to be able to recharge their iPhone during a long journey.
The additional battery, when released, will be the first to be marketed under the 'Works with iPhone' brand. Availability scheduled for September.
