Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is a company that tries to do things differently, compared to what rivals usually do. Where rivals like Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930), LG Electronics Inc. (KRX:066570) (OTCMKTS:LGEAF), HTC Corp (TPE:2498), Sony Corporation (NYSE:SNE) (TYO:6758) and others offer ways to add extra storage space, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has always focused on increasing internal storage space, with no way to add more. ‘Expandable storage’ – the term is never heard for Apple’s products.

Storage space a premium for iPhones

That’s why some of us are willing to pay some extra bucks to get more precious storage space. However, even then some users run out of space. That’s where Mophie, a battery pack manufacturer has tried to deal with this issue by coming up with an innovative product that not only offers extra storage space, but also some extra battery life to your iPhone 5 or 5S.

Mophie claims that the “space pack” is the world’s first rechargeable battery case with local built-in storage made for iPhone 5s/5. It can offer 100% extra battery life to your iPhone. The case wraps around your iPhone and the Lightning port to provide extra power and storage.

The case comes with 16GB or 32GB variants, which allows user to add more photos, videos, music and more to the iPhone. The free Space app allows users to manage and organize what is in the space pack’s storage, although you won’t be able to install more apps to this external storage unit.

Mophie’s Space Pack is surely something that looks enticing, since it offers a way to expand iPhone’s storage, plus also adds some extra battery juice. The company doesn’t offer any options for battery pack with different capacity, but you can only select one from different storage space. The space pack is perfect for those who’re thinking to add some extra space to their iPhones, without actually buying a new one with higher capacity.

The Mophie Space Packs are available for preorder right now. The 16GB model costs $149.95 and 32GB model costs $179.95. Both the cases will go on sale on March 14th.
