Mophie Space Pack is available in 16GB or 32GB sizes

Mophie is a known quantity in the iPhone accessory market thanks to its Juice Packs, which are cases that feature an integrated battery. The company is now adding storage to the mix with the new Space Pack.
The Space Pack, like the existing Juice Pack models, features an integrated 1700 mAh battery which doubles the battery life of an attached iPhone 5 or iPhone 5s. However, it also features either 16GB or 32GB of storage onboard. Given Apple’s refusal to provide a microSD slot for storage expansion on its iPhone models, the Space Pack offers a relatively elegant solution for users that need to add more space (and battery life).

The Space Pack can accommodate any file type, while the appropriately named “Space” app can directly access and play movies, music, and pictures.

The 16GB and 32GB Space Packs will begin shipping March 14 for $149.95 and $179.95 respectively.

Barely? It's nearly twice as thick! It's the main reason I decided not to get it.

Of course it's twice as thick: it's holding a phone AND a battery inside. And it sacrificed depth to save on height and width. Get rid of the plastic and I'm willing to bet the battery will be half as deep as the iPhone. Embedding the battery as-is into the iPhone would then increase its depth by 50%. However, if the two batteries were one, and the battery taller and wider to fit the phone, it would likely only increase depth by 25%-35%.

I think there's a huge market for a smartphone that can last a day, while being only slightly deeper. Again, this isn't limited to Apple; all smartphones should have this as an option. You want a slim phone? Smaller battery. Better to have a thicker phone than a pocket full of chargers.

If people didn't have this inexplicable hard-on for thinness, battery life wouldn't be an issue. Would current smartphones really be unusable at 50% or so greater thickness?

It doesn't matter if your phone is stylish and thin, because it's useless when its battery has no power left.

My extended S4 is twice as thick as an iPhone, at the same time the battery life is anywhere between 12 hours with everything turned on, and 12-18 days idle. It also lasts at least twice as long in active use between charges. Weight isn't even an issue - a 4AA searchlight is heavier than my S4.
