The Good The Mophie Juice Pack for the iPhone 3G is an easy way to add additional battery life to your iPhone 3G.

The Bad The Mophie Juice Pack for the iPhone 3G adds extra bulk; is only compatible with the iPhone 3G; and is quite expensive.

The Bottom Line If you can get over its bulk and price, the Mophie Juice Pack will indeed extend the battery life of your iPhone 3G.

Though we maintain that the iPhone 3G's battery life isn't as heinous as most people seem to think, we still think it runs out a lot faster than we would like. This isn't so bad with an MP3 player, but for a cell phone, having extra battery life could be a life saver. So we're excited to see a slew of new battery packs come out for the Apple iPhone 3G, Mophie being one of the more prominent names out there.

Mophie, if you recall, has made battery packs for the original iPhone, as well as the iPod Touch. The Juice Pack, as it's called, is constructed from matte black plastic with a nice soft feel and a surprising green interior. It looks almost identical to the Juice Packs for the other two devices, in fact. The only real difference is that each Mophie Juice Pack is molded specifically to fit each device. As such, the Mophie Juice Pack for the iPhone 3G won't work with the original iPhone, and it won't work with the iPod Touch, either, which is a disappointment. The Mophie Juice Pack for iPhone 3G is quite expensive, at $99.95.
