Mophie, purveyor of popular Juice Pack cases, today announced its offering for the acclaimed HTC One. The case maker is offering the One-specific 2500mAh case for $99.95 in Black at first, with a Silver version to come in "mid-May."

For those who aren't familiar, Mophie manufactures cases that are just a little more special than your average shell – besides protecting your device, they also charge its battery. The cases do this using a special "pass through" port that can be used for data transfer, or charging the case and the device inside (simultaneously, if you're into that).

Though Mophie's claims of the case being "lightweight and low-profile" may be a bit of a stretch, the shell does look quite elegant, if a little puffy surrounding the svelte physique of HTC's all-metal One.

The case also features four small lights indicating its charge level, and a switch that will begin the flow of energy to your dying device. At nearly one hundred dollars, the case isn't a cheap accessory, but if you find yourself going for long periods of time without access to an outlet, it may be a wise investment.

    Already purchases. I had to pay for extra shipping to canada so my total was 128...worth it to me

  • Mapplegate

    That's really pricey, but I can see it selling well. That was the one major downfall of The One.

      It's pricey, indeed, but considering others are selling just the case for close to that, it's not such a bad deal. Those who go mophie usually don't go back - it's damn convenient and actually looks quite slim for having a 2500mAh battery inside.

    You now I might put a case on my Dev one, but I went from 7-8 hrs on my galaxy nexus to 21-28hrs on average and even hit over 30hrs on light use. I don't think I need this unless going somewhere that doesn't have electricity. It is a cool case though
