We've enjoying using their iPhone 4 and 4S cases, and now, Mophie has released their popular back-up battery cases for the iPhone 5: the Juice Pack Helium.

The new case is around 13% thinner than the Air version released for previous iPhones, and as described by Mophie, provides "power, protection, style and purpose."

With the addition of the case's 500 mAh battery, users should be able to squeeze out 80% more battery life out of their device -- enough to boost talk time life by up to 6 hours on 3G, or provide another 6 hours of cellular browsing, 7 hours of WiFi browsing, 30 hours of audio playback or 7 hours of movie watching, according to Mophie.

The Mophie Juice Pack Helium will be available in either dark metallic or silver metallic, will retail for $79.95, and begin shipping in late February/early August. For more info, visit Mophie.com.
