Wireless charging is not a necessity, but once you've had a phone with this capability the convenience of simply setting your phone down on a wireless charging pad becomes tough to ever give up. Mophie continues to expand its Charge Force wireless power accessory lineup and sent along an assortment of gear to test. We reviewed the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Juice Pack Wireless in May and now Mophie has brought that same wireless capability to the Apple iPhone 6/6s and 6 Plus/6s Plus. Mophie also has advanced charging platforms with a wireless charging base, Charge Force desk mount, and Charge Force vent mount. Let's take a closer look at these accessories.
My iPhone always needs more power. My iPhone always needs charging. I need a quick and convenient solution to both issues. Mophie's Charge Force range of battery cases offer more power when I'm out and about, and convenient charging when back at base. Let's face it, the battery life on your iPhone is not great at the best of times.
Like Mophie's earlier wireless cases for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, the new iPhone cases are compatible with virtually every wireless charging standard on the market, including Qi and Powermat. They also sport integrated magnets, which keeps them attached to their included charging bases, as well as Mophie's vent mount for cars and desk mount accessories. Naturally, those mounts also serve as wireless charging surfaces. By adding in magnets, Mophie solves a problem endemic to all wireless charging solutions so far: they're often less convenient than charging with a cord, since you can't pick up your phone. Mophie's mount accessories avoids that issue entirely.
