in iPhone
Accessory maker Mophie on Tuesday revealed several Powerstation battery packs compatible with iOS devices, including models supporting wireless and USB-C charging.

The wireless unit, the Charge Force Powerstation ($99.95), has a 10,000 milliamp-hour battery and works with any mobile device supporting the Qi standard, as well as Mophie's Juice Pack Wireless case for iPhones. A USB port can be used alongside or in place of wireless charging.

The company's updated standard Powerstations range in capacity from 3,000 milliamp-hours on the Mini ($29.95) to 20,000 on the XXL ($99.95). The Mini and basic Powerstations come in four colors, but the XL is limited to three, and the XXL just two.

A variant of these is the Powerstation Plus, which is available in 4,000, 6,000, and 12,000 milliamp-hour versions ($59.95, $79.95, and $99.95, respectively). The key difference is its cable tip, which can be can be switched between Lightning and micro USB. The device comes in gold, rose gold, and space gray colors to match Apple devices, although the top-end XL excludes the gold option.

The Powerstation USB-C ($99.95), finally, not only has a 10,000 milliamp-hour battery but supports 15-watt fast-charging or up to 3 amps. Apple has yet to upgrade its iOS devices to support USB-C, but Mophie's product is backwards compatible thanks to a secondary USB-A port.

Most of the new accessories are shipping within a matter of days. The notable exceptions are the USB-C, which is due in 2-3 weeks, and the Charge Force, which is only listed as "coming soon."

    I'll be excited when there is a battery case that takes either microUSB, Lightening, or USB-C inputs for charging with the USB-C supporting fast charging.
