Your smartphone is an essential travel tool. It carries your mobile boarding passes, guides you around unfamiliar cities, translates your words into foreign languages and helps you determine where to eat — and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. None of that is possible, however, with a dead phone.
If you’re an iPhone user like me who shoots lots of video, takes tons of photos, runs apps, makes calls and stays connected on social media while traveling, it’s a guaranteed game over — you’re iPhone is going to die and probably run out of storage space in no time. But luckily, I found a solution in the Mophie Space Pack, a sleek two-in-one charging case with built in storage capacity for iPhone5 and iPhone5s.
About Mophie Space Pack
Added Battery Life
Here’s what I always say about my iPhone’s battery life: as a society we have the technologies (and the geniuses who develop them) to send complex robots to Mars, but apparently no one can figure out how to make an iPhone battery stay charged for more than 8 hours. Are you kidding?! It’s 2014. Granted I’m not contributing to the solution (I’m just a travel writer calling it like I see it), but luckily Mophie has an answer.
With the Mophie Space Pack, you won’t have to worry about your phone dying when you land after a long flight and need to call a friend, or perhaps more importantly, when you’re about to take what is sure to be the best instagram photo of all time. With a fully charged Space Pack on your iPhone 5 you’ll get a 100% full charge as soon as you flip the switch. That means no more searching for an outlet at the airport and no waiting for your phone to charge. And the less time you spend tethered to a charging station, the more time you can spend at the airport bar (or you know, out exploring the world).
Added Storage Capacity
Mophie has been making battery cases for a while now. The real game-changer and what makes the Space Pack like nothing else, is the addition of integrated extra storage space. Available in 16GB and 32GB models, the Space Pack allows you to carry the files you need with you wherever you go.
To help illustrate the point, consider this: you’re on safari and taking lots of photos and videos when your iPhone memory becomes full. With Mophie, all you have to do is drag those videos to your Space Pack and your iPhone will be ready to keep on shooting. Compare that to asking a lion to “hold that pose” while you try to decide which photos and videos to delete in order to make room for new ones. In the time it takes to do that, you’ve missed the shot, wasted time and held up anyone your traveling with. Don’t be that guy.
But it’s not just photos and videos the Space Pack lets you carry — it’s thousands of more songs and countless other files and documents which you’ll now be able to bring with you, view and share.
Buy: The Mophie Space Pack 16GB costs $149.95 and the 32GB model costs $179.95 and can be purchased here.
