A day after Apple revealed the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max at a September event in Cupertino, California, a third-party battery case manufacturer unveiled a new mobile battery case created to protect and wirelessly charge the new phones. On Wednesday, the Mophie juice pack access battery case for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max went on sale for $100 each. 

Apple has yet to announce updates to its Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 11 models, making the manufacturer, Mophie, the first to market, according to a report by 9to5Mac. Mophie's $100 price tag is the same for every iPhone 11 model. The battery cases are currently available in black, and a blush pink and Product (Red) color will be available soon, according to a release. 

The Mophie juice pack access battery case uses Qi wireless charging tech to power the new iPhones, leaving the Lightning port available for users who want to listen to music, take calls or charge their EarPods at the same time, according to a release. 

The juice pack access cases for the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 pro include a 2,000mAh battery, while the case for the iPhone 11 Pro Max has a 2,200mAh integrated battery. A built-in USB-C input port lets users charge both the juice pack and the iPhone. The Priority Plus charging ability passes wireless and wired power to the iPhone first, before recharging the case, the release said. 

The iPhone 11 models do boast a longer battery life, according to Apple -- up to five hours over last year's versions for the iPhone 11 Pro Max

Mophie offers a two-year warranty on the cases, which are already available for older iPhone models.
