How to get the most juice from your juice pack
We’re often asked “What’s the best method for charging my juice pack?” Here’s what we suggest.
Connect your juice pack to a power source using the included micro-USB to USB cable. The juice pack can be plugged-in to your computer, powerstation, or wall-plug style adapter (we suggest using the adapter you receive with your phone).
Assuming that your phone and juice pack case are both fully charged, we recommend waiting until your phone has 20% battery left. When the phone’s in the red, either press the juice pack case’s status button for 2 seconds (or flip the standby switch to green) and let the case do the heavy lifting. Phones require more power to charge past 80%, so if you want to get the greatest battery boost from the battery case, we suggest putting it back to standby mode until your phone battery is low again. This isn’t the end-all-be-all, but we like it.
Charging your case and phone separately aren’t necessary as our juice pack features Priority+ Charging Technology, where your device will always be the first to receive a charge.
juice pack cases are rechargeable for over 500 cycles. What’s a cycle? Using your juice pack to charge your device from 0% to 100%. For example, you can charge your juice pack 10% of the way 10x before it counts as a complete cycle. Not to worry… after 500 cycles, its fully charged capacity will only be less than 75% of the capacity when it was new. Not a mophie tactic, as all lithium batteries need replacing after time and use.
The last commonly asked charge-related question we get is “How come I only got “X” amount of charge from my juice pack? Why don’t I get more?!” The charge you will receive heavily depends on how you use your phone and its settings. Opening and closing apps, playing music, or watching videos… these all affect your phone’s battery, which affects how much charge your juice pack is going to make-up. Here are some awesome tips to extend your iPhone battery, and some for Android users.
