The two new Mods – Incipio Vehicle Dock and Mophie Juice Pack – announced for the Moto Z family last week was released today.
Motorola has priced the Moto Juice Pack at $79. The new Moto Mod battery packs 3,000 mAh capacity and can provide up to 60 percent more battery life. There is also a hidden USB Type C port for charging.
The second Mod is a car dock for smartphone from Incipio. It gives you an air vent attachment system, along with a magnetic phone mount to hold your phone to it.
Priced at $64, the Incipio Vehicle Dock supports 15W TurboPower charging. You can also use it with Android Auto when a phone is connected to the dock.
According to Droid Life, it also works in Efficiency Mode to “keep your phone always topped off should you decide to attach the pack throughout a day.”
With the two new mods, Lenovo-owned Motorola has total six Mods for the Moto Z family that includes Moto Z, Moto Z Force, and Moto Z Play. The two new Moto Mods for now will only be available through Verizon Wireless.
Motorola is going all-in on modular accessories this year. The Moto Z and Moto Z Force which it released recently is the first to explore clip-on modules. Should it be successful, the modular concept will be expanded to the mid-range category of devices.
CNET reports that Lenovo is committed to releasing 12 magnetic modules each year. Moto Mods director John Touvannas said the company’s goal for 2017 “is to get more Mods out this year than we did last year.”
Motorola is also set to launch an Indiegogo campaign in January that will allow developers to pitch ideas for new Mods.
