I was one of the million or so consumers that purchased Apple's new iPhone 3GS on launch weekend last month. Besides the nice increase in overall speed, one of the first things I noticed was the seemingly poor battery life compared to my 1st generation iPhone. I was able to squeeze almost two full days of use out of the original iPhone, whereas the new 3GS struggled to make it through a single day of casual use. I also knew that I would need a new case for the phone, as my old one wouldn't fit the new, slightly different exterior.

With these two dilemmas at hand, I quickly thought back to an email I had received a few months earlier regarding Mophie's new Juice Pack Air for the iPhone 3G. If you are unaware, the Juice Pack Air is a rechargeable external battery concealed inside of a protective form-fitting case for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS.

At the time, I was still using the original iPhone and thus had to decline the opportunity to review this case / mobile battery pack. But now with the new 3GS in hand, the Juice Pack Air could seemingly solve two problems in one. I got back in touch with Mophie and less than a week later, the Juice Pack Air arrived at my door.

The Juice Pack Air arrived in the black retail hanging package that you see above. There is a large photo of an iPhone 3G using the case on the front and some detailed specifications on the rear. Below is a complete list of specs borrowed from Mophie's website.

The times listed above are in addition to the iPhone's internal battery. Continue ahead as we take a closer look at the Juice Pack Air.
