The hits just keep coming from accessory manufacturer mophie: they've announced two new power packs to keep your iOS devices purring happily. The juice pack powerstation duo (US$99.95) and juice pack powerstation mini ($59.95) are the latest in a series of external battery packs designed to provide power for hours of fun ... or work.

The powerstation duo (seen above) is the perfect idea for travel. As the name implies, the 6000 mAh device has two USB ports and 2.1 Amp output so that you could provide two iPads with a bit more power for the road.
With that amount of juice packed inside (see what I did there?), you might be worried about what could happen if this power pack decided to short out. Worry not, for there inside the box is built-in short circuit and overcharge protection.
The powerstation duo is packaged in a black soft-touch case with a metal band around the exterior, the perfect accessory for your iPad or iPhone. It has an LED power indicator built in so you can see how much power you have left, and when you're ready to recharge the pack, the powerstation duo supports high-current charging so you're back on the road quickly.
All of this power is only going to take up a scant 2.28" x 4.30" x 0.78" in the midst of your socks and underwear in your suitcase, and adds 6.9 ounces to the weight.
