How They Got Started
Based in California, Mophie is a phone case company centers their design around charging while keeping phones waterproof. Two co founders started designing in 2006 and released the first JuicePack products, the original name. These were so successful they continued. The Mophie Rescue Initiative was an innovative advertisement scheme on their part, at the South by Southwest Festival, people would tweet in their dying phone, and winners had an interactive map tracking Saint Bernards that traveled through the festival. Once they found the dogs, they received a power reserve to charge their phone.

Case To Fame
The two most innovative and acclaimed products in Mophie’s line are the juice pack and space pack. The juice pack is the first mobile battery pack that was certified by Apple, and the space pack is the first mobile charging case with built in local storage. These products were unique to the market and innovative at their release, which was what propelled Mophie to fame!
Mophie is a unique case company because they are highly interested in helping others. In 2015 they partnered with (RED) a HIV/AIDs charity focused on ending the epidemic. This red juice pack air case was special, as all proceeds went to the foundation.
While these cases come in a variety of colors, they are pretty standard on design. They are not too bulky considering the battery-charging element, but they keep the design minimal. The satin finished materials are sleek, but not luxurious. Most users of these cases are relying on the functional element, so this is most likely why the style is lacking.
It does not get more functional than remote charging and local storage backup. These cases are unique and the first to introduce mobile charging. No matter where you are, their slogan #StayPowerful will have your back and keep you charged. The brand also carries larger portable chargers you can link to your phone with a cord for multiple charges. The most functional ability of the space packs and stations is the additional 128G of space you can receive in addition to charging. If you are busy and do a lot on your phone, this is definitely beneficial to you.
While most of these cases are designed just for charging, there are military standard, rugged cases as well that keep your phone protected from water and elements and charged. The H2Pro line has cases that are completely waterproof while charging your phone. So if you loose your phone in the rain, when you find it, it will be charged and dry!
