Mophie Juice Pack for Galaxy S5

Mophie — one of the best-known names in the battery case game — this morning dropped word that its Galaxy S5 Juice Pack will be available on Sept. 8 for $99, and you can preorder starting today. This battery weighs in at 3,000 mAh, or 107 percent of the stock GS5 battery.

There's a (rightful) argument that such a case isn't necessary for a phone like the Galaxy S5, since it has a removable battery. But for those who want a combination battery/case, it's a more-than valid option.

You can preorder here in either white or black.

I would say their commercials bashing iPhone wall huggers would contradict this products existence aside from the minority who aren't able to charge their phone every night.

Samsung didn't make it. I think it says... Mophie on the box, is that right? I have bad eye sight... Sorry

Also, I'm pretty sure you've never used an s5, because if you did, you would know it shames an iPhone... Now retreat to your cave

He's saying that if the S5 had such great battery life, it shouldn't need a battery case designed for it.

which is an invalid argument since even the greatest battery in the world will finally run out. For people that dont have access to charger this is a great option

Don't get your logic. You can always use another battery. My Note 3 battery runs circles around my iPhone. Even now I've been unplugged since before 8 this morning and been using a good bit all day. It's almost 5 and I'm at 56%. Even with that I still bought 2 anker batteries and a charger recommended on this site for $39 sale. Have not come one to using them yet. Fyi..... I have 2 mophies I can sell you for your iPhone.

I have to say, Samsung flagship devices always have and still have the best accessory support outside of iPhones.

Whoever buys this for their S5 is not a smart person...

Good to have another option, too bad it took too long. The S5 battery might be the best available, but for heavy users there isn't a stock phone that can make it thru the day.

Cool product I'll need one of these when I go to CES. I don't want to have spend precious time swapping batteries or switching to USA when I can be with the latest technology.

Its $100 for 107% EXTRA capacity. Over double the battery life and some protection on the phone. Although the battery life on the S5 is respectable, I can easily use a full charge before my day's end. I'm not saying I'd purchase the thing, but I could see it being a useful option for some.

Ohh I gotcha. I was misunderstanding. I thought that it simply replaced the stock 2800 mah with a 3000 mah one, not that the bigger battery was in addition to the stock one.

Actually, 107%. A person would have their stock battery life plus 3000 mah from this. Still makes more sense to get the 7500mah replacement for a whole lot less.

No one in the right mind would pay $100 for this. I would purchase one of those deck of card sized external chargers with 5600 mAh battery for about $17 on eBay.double the capacity and about 4/5 of money still left in my pocket.

I don't understand all the hate on this. Unlike a removable battery or stand-alone battery, the case is always on the phone. Smaller and a lot more convenient, especially for those who would use a case anyway.

This is why I came to the comments... To see if anyone knew if they forced you to remove the battery door. Also, I'm pretty sure this renders the phone water-vulnerable.

I was just looking around for an answer for this, I'm surprised no one mentioned it earlier. Also yeah, is the water resistance moot now?
