People have always bought Mophie battery cases to extend the battery life of their phones, but going forward you can add a new feature to the Mophie list. Wireless charging. That's right, along with the previously Released wireless juice packs for Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. The company has now released the juice pack wireless for iPhone 6S, 6, and iPhone 6S Plus. And all of Mofy's cases going forward will offer wireless charging. As for price, both new iPhone juice packs cost a hundred dollars and provide more than fifty percent additional battery life. The cases come bundled with a wireless. This charging base is compatible with virtually all wireless phones, accessories and charging standards, including Chi. So the value proposition here is that you're getting a mophie battery case, plus wireless charging for the same price as Apple Smart Battery Case, which provides a similar boost to battery life. As for how it all works, the battery cases adhere magnetically to the charging base As well as Mophies new charge force desk mount and charge force car vent mount. Right now those mounts, which cost around $40, are the only additional charge force accessories announced, but Mophie sees this as a budding wireless charging ecosystem, that may someday include other accessories that magnetically attach to the case. Those who own any of Samsung's more recent Galaxy smart phones know that wireless charging circuitry is built into the phone, though you do need to buy a charging base to make it work. And while wireless charging may not be an essential feature, it makes charging a little easier and more businesses such as Starbucks are offering wireless charging stations in their stores. So there you have it, wireless charging is the future. And so are magnet or so Mofy thinks. I'm David Carnoy for CNET.com. Thanks for watching. [BLANK_AUDIO]
