Now that Mophie has become a household name for adding battery life to your mobile devices (and doing it with some cute cuddly dogs, if you were at SXSW), it’s moving on to the next phase of #firstworldproblem: Mobile storage capacity.
Today, the company announced that it will expand its ‘Space’ accessories line to support the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPad mini. Previously, the company offered a Space pack that triples as a protective case, extra battery and space storage via Mophie’s Space app. Now, the line has been extended to include a standalone Spacestation battery pack as well.
Here’s how it works: Just pick the Space accessory you prefer and download Space, Mophie’s free file manager app. Much like storage services such as Dropbox or Google Drive, your content is automatically synced to Space while also backing up files to the local hardware so you’ll always have access to your photos, videos, music and documents.
Both the Space pack and Spacestation can provide up to 128GB of additional storage, with the latter accessory supporting both Android and iOS devices and can power a device up to three full cycles per charge.
Space pack and Spacestation start at $149 for the 32GB version; the iPad mini version of the Space pack starts at $199.
