Default Mophie Space Pack - extra storage and battery for iPhones [Hardware]

Some of you may be interested in extending storage and battery capacity on your iPhones 5/5s by clipping on some extra hardware.

CygnetSeven told me about the Mophie Space Pack. Check out the vid.

I would prefer a memory card instead. The pack makes the iPhone way too long, and they only offer upto 32gb.. Not enough.

Sd cards are just awesome on android, and 64 gb sd cards are dirt cheap, $35. So nice not having to worry about disk space, especially for unlimited video, music, and photos.

Also it's nice having removeable batteries like on the note 3, never ever have to stop to charge.

Hopefully someday ios will be the same.

If apple do add sd card support (which I doubt) but IF they do... You can basically say Android won the war. Apple gave in and did what is right, and now provide external storage.

I got two extra batteries plus charger for my note 3, 3200mAh each, so total 64000 mAh for $25 total.

It's easy to pop the back off and put in another battery.

So with the original battery, I got 96000 mAh.

Even playing the most extreme console like games, it will easily go on a full day without charging. Haven't even gone through 2 batteries in one day, let alone 3.

Nice never having to have to worry about charging a phone. In fact, one battery will fully charge before I can use the other, never have to worry about power issues anymore.

Kinda wish I could do the same thing with my ipad, wish I could play Asphalt 8 and other games all day long with never plugging in.

These devices look quite good but its frustrating they're only for the iphone 5s/c. I've got an iphone 4s but just 16 gig, would be nice to have something like this.

To be honest the data plan i'm on is unlimited so i can download any apps (50 meg or less) and any ones larger than that i just need to go into a wifi zone.

Are you sure it fits the 5C? I have found zilch battery cases for mine so far, so I keep it on 3G most of the time...
