Mophie will soon have a new battery case for the latest iPhones.
The Juice Pack Access is set to ship before the end of March and has a built-in battery, wireless charging capabilities and is cut out at the bottom so you can use the Lighting port to plug the Lightning EarPods -- or any other Lightning headphones. At $120, it definitely qualifies as a premium battery case. (No word on international pricing but we'll add it as soon as we get it).
The new design seems like a nice step forward for Mophie battery cases. It's also worth noting that while you can charge both your case and phone by laying them on a Qi-enabled wireless charging pad, you can also charge the case via USB-C. A cable is included.
