Apple Begins Selling OtterBox’s Stackable Wireless Charging System and Other Latest Accessories

Apple today added a variety of charging solutions and other products to its online store from brands such as OtterBox, Mophie, Belkin, Ubio Labs, Native Union, STM, and Promise Technology.

OtterBox’s stackable wireless charging system OtterSpot includes a base that can charge up to three disc-shaped 5,000 mAh batteries and an iPhone, AirPods case, or other device on the top simultaneously. The idea is that you can quickly pick up one of the batteries from the stack and charge any Qi-enabled device on the go.


Introduced in August 2019, the OtterSpot system comes with a 36W USB-C power adapter and offers fast charging up to 10 watts. The base and one battery are available as a combo for $129.95, or the base and standalone batteries can be purchased separately for $69.95 each.

Available exclusively at Apple is Mophie’s latest Powerstation Plus XL battery pack with an 8,000 mAh capacity for $99.95, as well as braided USB-C to Mini DisplayPort and USB-C to Micro-B cables.


6,000 mAh and 10,000 mAh battery packs from Ubio Labs are also available for $59.95 and $79.95, respectively.

Apple has added two BOOST↑CHARGE power adapters from Belkin, including one with a single 18W USB-C port for $39.95 and one with dual 18W USB-C and 12W USB-A ports for $44.95 for charging devices like iPhones and iPads. Each power adapter includes a Lightning to USB-C cable in the box.

Three more RAID storage systems are available from Promise Technology, including R4/16TB, R6/24TB, and R8/32TB options.


Last, there are new cases from Native Union and STM for the 10.2-inch iPad.

Mophie Working on AirPower Replacement Able to Wirelessly Charge Multiple Devices Regardless of Position

Mophie parent company Zagg at CES told Bloomberg that it is developing a wireless charging mat that has capabilities that Apple attempted to implement in the now-canceled AirPower, but was unable to make work.

The charging accessory will charge iPhones and other mobile devices regardless of where they are placed on the charging mat, a feature that the ‌AirPower‌ was supposed to have.

Apple’s canceled ‌AirPower‌

It’s not clear if the charging mat that Zagg is developing will be able to charge the Apple Watch or if it will be limited to Qi-based wireless charging. Apple wanted the ‌AirPower‌ to be able to charge the ‌Apple Watch‌, iPhone, and AirPods, but had trouble implementing the overlapping charging coils that were necessary.

There are multi-device chargers on the market able to charge the ‌iPhone‌, ‌AirPods‌, and ‌Apple Watch‌ at once, but each device must be placed in a specific spot on the charger. Zagg’s solution would apparently work anywhere, and will be marketed under the Mophie brand.

Some current charging mats from Mophie

Unless the wireless charger Zagg is working on works with the ‌iPhone‌, ‌Apple Watch‌, and ‌AirPods‌, it won’t quite match what the ‌AirPower‌ was supposed to do, but multi-device charging regardless of position is still a challenge even when limited to Qi-based wireless charging devices.

Zagg marketing executive Brad Bell told Bloomberg that the company is pitching the charging device to retailers and gathering feedback, so it’s not clear when this charging device might see a debut. There’s also no word on what it might look like, though it could be a flat charging mat similar to the ‌AirPower‌.

Zagg is also working on long distance charging that would charge devices from several feet away, but that charging technology is still “many years away.”

Review: Mophie’s Juice Pack Access Case Gives Your iPhone 11’s Already Great Battery Life a Modest Boost

Mophie is known for its smartphone battery cases, which provide you with a way to keep an iPhone battery topped off while not having to worry about carrying around a large portable USB battery. Continuing this trend, Mophie recently launched Juice Pack Access cases for the the latest iPhones: iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max.


I’ve had a chance to check out the Juice Pack Access case for my iPhone 11 Pro Max for the past few weeks, and if you’ve ever used an iPhone battery case you’ll know what to expect. The Juice Pack Access cases use wireless charging to fuel up your iPhone in lieu of the traditional Lightning connector.

The Juice Pack Access case snaps apart in two pieces like previous Mophie cases, allowing you to slide your iPhone 11 Pro Max into the bottom of the case and then slide the top portion of the case over your iPhone. Assembly is as easy as ever, but the seam between the two pieces of the case is still visible.

Apple’s Smart Battery Case for iPhone X (left), Mophie Juice Pack Air for iPhone XS (middle), and Mophie Juice Pack Access for iPhone 11 Pro Max (right)

On the bottom rear of the case you’ll find a button that activates the case and tells you how much charge is left in it with Mophie’s traditional 4-LED system. While sufficient, this remains one of my least favorite aspect of Mophie’s cases, mainly due to how little actual information you’re given about the case’s charge level. You can go from 4 LEDs to 2 with no indication of how fast the battery dropped between the two or how much is left until it’s dead, making it hard to really tell how much battery is left in the case, and to an extent, how much is left for your iPhone.

Instead of direct Lightning charging through a built-in Lightning connector inside of a “chin” on the case’s bottom (seen on the Juice Pack Air line), Juice Pack Access cases are entirely open at the bottom and lack a chin. Mophie is able to do this by using wireless charging, so you can not only charge the case and your iPhone by placing them on a Qi-compatible mat, but when out and about the Juice Pack Access itself is wirelessly charging your iPhone.


The Juice Pack Access case for the iPhone 11 Pro Max has a 2,200 mAh battery, which is slightly over half the size of the battery of the iPhone 11 Pro Max at 3,900 mAh. As a note, the Juice Pack Access cases for the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro both have 2,000 mAh batteries, compared to 3,100 mAh and 3,046 mAh batteries in each respective iPhone. This means that the Mophie cases for the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro might prove to be slightly more beneficial than the iPhone 11 Pro Max thanks to the smaller iPhone batteries.

In testing, when I would activate the Mophie case and my iPhone had about 10 percent of battery remaining, I would get my iPhone back up to between 30 and 50 percent (very much depending on how heavy my iPhone usage was during that time). Meanwhile, if I activated the Mophie case first thing in the morning, it kept my iPhone topped off at 100 percent for about five hours.

This aligns with the intended purpose of the case, which is only meant to provide you with a small amount of battery to get you to the end of the day, not fully refill your iPhone 11. As Mophie says on its website, “The juice pack access battery is not designed to charge the phone up to 100% when empty. Rather, it is meant to provide a quick top off to help you get you through your day until you can reach a wireless charging pad or charging outlet.”


Because of the already stellar battery of the iPhone 11 Pro Max, Mophie’s Juice Pack Access case ended up feeling somewhat unnecessary most days. When I let my iPhone 11 Pro Max die before I activated the case, it took two full days to kill the smartphone with regular, light usage. It was a nice benefit to squeeze out a few more hours from my iPhone, but far from necessary for my personal use.

Due to the small benefit provided by the case, I’m not sure that I’m willing to live with its downsides. This Mophie case adds a noticeable heft to the iPhone 11 Pro Max, resulting in a device that’s more unruly to handle when texting or checking email, and more cumbersome to carry around in a pocket. When it’s charging it also gets quite warm, which Mophie says is normal (and is typical of wireless charging).


Wireless charging in the Juice Pack Access line also comes with pros and cons. While the overall design of the Juice Pack Access is sleeker thanks to the lack of a chin (and direct access to the Lightning port is nice), wireless charging is aimed more at trickle charging your iPhone over long periods of time. This makes it perfect for placing your iPhone on a Qi mat at night, but less than ideal when you’re looking to get a big burst of battery on your iPhone in the middle of a workday.

Bottom Line

Mophie’s Juice Pack Access case is as sturdy and well-designed as any of the company’s previous accessories, and for someone looking to own an iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max that can truly become a 3 day-long battery powerhouse, it gets the job done.


But, for anyone happy with the battery life of their fresh iPhone 11, an $80 battery case is entirely unnecessary.

How to Buy

Mophie’s Juice Pack Access Case for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max can be purchased on Zagg.com for $79.95. With the MacRumors exclusive promo code RUMORS20, you can get the cases at a 20 percent discount for $63.96. They’re available in Black, Blush Pink, and (Product)Red.

Note: Mophie provided MacRumors with one Juice Pack Access Case in Black for the purposes of this review, and no other compensation was received. MacRumors is an affiliate partner with some of these vendors. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

Review: Mophie’s Latest Wireless Chargers Will Juice Up Multiple Devices at Once, But Are Expensive

Mophie earlier this year came out with several multi-device charging solutions after Apple failed to deliver the AirPower. The $80 Dual Wireless Charging Pad can charge two devices at one time, while the 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad ($140) is designed to charge an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods all at once.

Design wise, these chargers are fairly simple, made from a black plastic covered with a suede-like fabric for grip and protection from scratches. Mophie also makes a version that’s a glossy black plastic for those that don’t like the ultrasuede look, and it’s sold on the Apple online store.


I’m not a huge fan of the suede because of the way that it can look discolored depending on the lay of the fabric, but it’s a clean enough design and the suede keeps the devices properly in place while charging. I’m also not sure the black plastic is the best material given the price of these chargers, but again, there’s nothing wrong with it. It’s simple and clean, if a bit boring.

The Dual Wireless Charging Pad is a simple oblong charging pad that houses a single iPhone in landscape orientation or two iPhones positioned in portrait orientation. There’s a line on each side, directing users where to place each iPhone for proper charging positioning.


The bottom features a rubber ring for stability on a desk or a table, and there’s a port for the charging cable and an additional spot to plug in another USB-A cable, such as a cable for charging an ‌Apple Watch‌. Both of Mophie’s chargers come with rather large power bricks that offer enough power to charge multiple devices.


The 3-in-1 Wireless Charger has a similar design with the same black suede base and a dedicated spot for each device. The right side, which is flat, is meant to charge an iPhone, while there’s an indentation where ‌AirPods‌ are meant to lie. This indentation was designed for the original ‌AirPods‌, so the AirPods Pro‘s Wireless Charging Case is not a perfect fit, but it does charge when placed in the indentation.


Above the indentation for the ‌AirPods‌, there’s a little ‌Apple Watch‌ charging puck that’s actually a detachable piece that you need to snap into place, which isn’t my favorite design. It’s easy to get in the right area, and I suppose it’s there so you can remove it and charge something else, but it seemed to give me charging issues.


I had a problem where I needed to take it out and reseat it a few times to get my ‌Apple Watch‌ to charge right. I also noticed that at times, I have to take the ‌Apple Watch‌ off of the charger multiple times to get it to start charging, which is not ideal. I didn’t have issues with charging the iPhone on either charger, though, and the ‌AirPods‌ also charged fine.

The charging puck does allow the ‌Apple Watch‌ to be put in Nightstand mode, so you can glance over and see the time if it’s at your bedside. Both charging pads feature LED lights at the front so you can make sure a given device is charging properly

Mophie’s wireless chargers offer 7.5W charging speeds for Apple devices, including after the iOS 13 patch that seems to have limited some 7.5W wireless chargers to 5W instead of 7.5W.


With the 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad, the iPhone XS Max charged from zero to 23 percent after a half an hour, and 43 percent after an hour. The iPhone 11 Pro Max charged to 21 percent after a half hour and 38 percent after an hour, which is in line with other 7.5W wireless chargers.

I saw similar charging speeds from the Dual Wireless Charging Pad, which charged the ‌iPhone XS‌ Max to 21 percent after a half an hour and 42 percent after an hour. The ‌iPhone 11 Pro Max‌ charged to 22 percent after 30 minutes and 38 percent after an hour.

Bottom Line

Mophie’s charging products are always good quality and are typically reliable, but Mophie is known for its premium pricing and these wireless chargers are no exception.

The Dual Wireless Charging Pad is $80 and the 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad is $140, which is a lot to ask, even if it is in line with other higher-end wireless products like those from Nomad.


At these price points, it’s difficult to flat out recommend Mophie’s chargers, and with the 3-in-1 in particular, I have reservations because of the ‌Apple Watch‌ charging issues I experienced. There’s nothing that makes these wireless chargers stand out from other similar options on the market, which is disappointing.

I like Mophie’s products for the most part, but given the build quality, pricing, and charging issues, the Dual Wireless Charging Pad and the 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad feel like a bit of a miss. Mophie does sometimes have sales, so if you can get these at a cheaper price point, they’re a whole lot more appealing. Otherwise, I’d recommend shopping around for a better deal.

How to Buy

The Dual Wireless Charging Pad and the 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad can be purchased from the Zagg website for $80 and $140, respectively.

Mophie earlier this year came out with several multi-device charging solutions after Apple failed to deliver the AirPower. The $80 Dual Wireless Charging Pad can charge two devices at one time, while the 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad ($140) is designed to charge an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods all at once.

Mophie Launches Juice Pack Access Cases for iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max

Mophie this week launched new Juice Pack Access cases for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. This is Mophie’s first set of battery cases for the new 2019 iPhone lineup, which were announced back in September.

Like other Juice Pack accessories, the Juice Pack Access case for iPhone 11 provides up to an additional 15 hours of audio or 5 additional hours of video to your ‌iPhone 11‌. The ‌iPhone 11‌ and 11 Pro cases have a 2,000 mAh battery while the iPhone 11 Pro Max case has a 2,200 mAh battery.


You can charge the accessory wirelessly on Qi-compatible charging mats or through USB-C, and then activate it by pressing the button on the lower bottom of the back of the case.

Mophie said that the case provides a compact design with high-impact protection. It includes internal rubberized support pads to protect the iPhone from drops, and raised corners to prevent scratches on the display.

Apple is believed to be working on Smart Battery Cases of its own for the ‌iPhone 11‌ line, but as of yet the company has not announced any solid details about new versions of its charging case accessory. For the iPhone XS generation, Apple didn’t release Smart Battery Cases until January 2019, months after the September 2018 iPhone launch.

The Juice Pack Access is available for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max, all priced at $99.95. Colors for all models include Black, Blush Pink, and Product(Red), although stock availability fluctuates on some options.
