The ability to charge this pack via Qi wireless charging is cool. And while the one USB-A port is useful, I don’t love Mophie’s built-in plugs. I have the mini USB-C packs, and they just don’t feel super durable where the cable extends from the battery pack, and they always have to sort of twist or wrinkle to get to your device. The built-in jacks feel better on my Jackery battery, which I use specifically for my camera gear, since I don’t need extra clutter of cables there. Ultimately, that weakness in this one, and the lack of a proper type C port are a bummer.
I would be much more interested in another Mophie model with a type C and type A connector, especially if it could do the same wireless charging (for the pack is cool, but both ways would be even more cool).
@glarue Lucky guess? Not really standard fare here lately. “Oh I am the King of England, I like to sing and dance. If you don’t believe me, I will punch you in the pants”. I predict you haven’t been the only one who made that prediction.
Bought a pair last time. Absolutely love them. I tend to run my battery down during walkthroughs when taking pictures and I do t always have an opportunity to get back to the car. I keep one of these in my jacket and one in the bag.
So these have a female Lightning port in and a built-in male Lightning connector out and I get two hermaphroditic units, let’s call them Unit A (Pat) and Unit B (Chris). This begs the question, accounting for thermodynamic losses: how many times can I use a fully charged Pat to partially charge a fully discharged Chris so I can use the now partially charged Chris to less partially recharge Pat so Pat can then be used to even less partially recharge a now discharged Chris, ad nauseam? Cause that’s a lot of weird lightning stuff with no thunder and a terribly inefficient way to heat your house.
What this needs is a way to charge you phone wirelessly on the other side so that I can set my phone on top of the Mophie and then set the Mophie on my wireless charger. That would please the Redundancy Department of Redundancy.
If you charge the charger with a cord, does it accept UCB-C, or the old mico USB, or lightening port?
Secondly is there a 2nd output, or only the built in lightening cord?
I’m stupid & can’t figure this out.
my daughter and I got them for Christmas, we still can’t figure out how to charge them. I’ve tried charging through the computer, through plugging into an outlet, been researching with no luck so they’re unusable at this point.
