I've always loved Mophie products. They're utilitarian, sure, but they have a sense of design that falls right in line with Apple's aesthetic, and does an excellent job at making their products, that could very easily be bulky and cumbersome, an absolute joy to use. Plus, if you've ever been saved by a Mophie, you quickly come to realize that they can be worth their weight in gold.
Well there's a new battery in town, and it's called the Powerstation Plus. Much like the original Powerstation, this is an external battery pack designed to charge your iPhone, iPad, or other mobile device. This new version, however, has added built-in cables for both charging the Powerstation and charging your device. No longer do you have to carry around additional cables with your battery pack — it's all built-in.
It also has power pass-through, which means you can charge your mobile device and the Powerstation at the same time — this comes in handy more often than you might imagine. It's available in 4 different battery capacities, which get you anywhere from 2x to 8x the capacity of your device on its own.
I never travel without a Mophie, and it has saved my butt on more than one occasion. If you're doing any traveling during the holiday season, don't risk having your iPhone die in the middle of a cross-country flight. This is an absolute must-have.
