    Added battery on the fly

    This is probably the smartest way to get additional battery life on the go that any smartphone/accessory company has come up with so far. Some phones have user-changeable batteries, which is only so useful in a pinch because you have to power down the phone, pop out the dead battery, pop in the charged one, then turn the phone back on again. Portable "charging banks" are slightly better, because you neither have to power down your phone nor find a wall outlet to charge up, but in the end you're still tethered by a wire of some kind to the power bank which is awkward at best if you're moving around. Then there's this... the Moto Mod implementation of the power bank. Getting low on battery? Grab one of these, it magnetically attaches to the back of any Moto Z family phone, and boom, you get an extra 2220 mAh of battery. Granted, this is not as much capacity as most portable power banks offer (those can be as high as 10,000 mAh or more) but it's certainly enough to give the phone a good amount of additional battery life. To address a complaint I've seen around the internet: "this charges the phone slowly". Yes, that is more or less correct, as it has a max output of 1A. However, this is not really an issue. What I have found is that if you're actively using the phone with this attached, it seems to mostly draw battery from the power pack rather than the phone's battery. If the drain isn't high enough, or if the phone is mostly idle, it will charge up the phone's battery at a moderate pace (wayyy slower than the Turbo wall charger, but again, fast enough for most uses). Mine has even kept pace and very slowly increased my phone's battery while using navigation and playing an audio book at the same time. This to me is perfectly acceptable. If they pushed more current out of the power pack, all of the extra heat generated would reduce the battery life and longevity of both batteries, so I am 100% happy with the speed they chose. One last note: buy the wireless charging one (this one, or the wireless charging version of the Kate Spade or Tumi ones). They are only $10 more for the wireless charging, and it makes this way more convenient. I can completely drain one of these on my phone, then just pop it on the wireless charger while I keep using my phone. The non-wireless charging ones have to be charged while connected to the phone, and the phone to the wall charger. It's less convenient, but still works out okay... We have one of these and one of the non-wireless charging Kate Spade ones, and I wish I had just forked over the extra $10 for the wireless charging Kate Spade one. I give this 4 stars. Good quality, amazing portability. For the features, I think this is quite a bit overpriced. I was able to get mine partially on sale and partially with a gift card, so it wan't too bad, but it would be hard to justify the list price under most circumstances. So 4 stars overall.

    Practical moto mod

    What I like most about the mod system from Motorola is how seamlessly they connect and integrate, without any additional configuration. The battery mod is probably the most straightforward of the current mod line up, but where it impresses is how little you need to worry about how the phone is held or put in your pocket to make sure it continues to charge, or what you can't do with your phone because it's tethered to a battery. It's just as straight forward to make calls, use apps, take photos and use moto actions as it is when the mod isn't connected. On the flip side, I have the Moto Z Play and it's internal battery life is really impressive. The mod only really adds about 20% extra to the internal battery, and if I didn't receive it for free with the Z Play I'm not sure that I would pay retail for it. However I can see this being a crucial mod for the slimmer Moto Z. It's also with mentioning that this mod is the only way to wirelessly charge your Moto Z, if that's something that you are used to. The mod I received didn't come with a wireless charging pad so I can't speak to the charging speed or temperature of this method. While I think wireless charging is cool conceptually, I've been pleased with the turbo power 15 charger that comes with the phone for charging the phone alone and the phone and mod together.

    Great Powerpack add on

    The Incipio - offGRID™ 2220 mAh Moto Mod Portable Charger - Black is a good start to the battery supply. You click the pack onto your Moto Mod compatible phone and it recognizes the pack after a second or 2. You can set the pack to maximum charge where it will try to keep your phone at 100% charge or at Efficient charge where it will charge your phone to 80%. The pack is Qi and PMA wireless compatible so you can charge just the pack or the pack and phone together wirelessly. I have found the way to get the most out of it is to wait till my phone actually runs down to 30% or less then click on the pack, that way I can run my phone in low power or efficiency mode PROS: Max or Efficient mode available, Wireless charging compatible, leaves the USB port open for other things. CONS: When you put the pack on the phone will not go into its own Low power (efficiency) mode since it believes it is being charged

    Purchased this particular "mod" after researching the various battery cases available for the Moto "Z" line of phones. What makes this a no-brainer to purchase is the fact that it is actually 2 mods...A wireless charger as well as a battery. It will recharge the phone and itself wirelessly if attached or it will wirelessly charge if placed on the wireless charger by itself... Extends the battery capacity if in a situation that a charge might not be available. Considering the current price, it's a good buy considering a wireless cover is $30-$40 and a comparable (as far as capacity) battery case is the same $30-$40 and this does both in one unit! This adds a texture to the back of the phone so it makes the whole package a bit easier to grip, which is nice! It does almost double the thickness of the phone but the Play z2 is very thin to begin with so it makes the whole thing comparable to most other phones as far as thickness. I have dropped the phone a number of times with the battery attached and it just fell off when it hit the ground so it will provide some protection and is very easy to just "snap" back on...No damage or scratching.

    Full Moto Z review

    I needed a new phone for a while. But at the end of the day mine did what I needed it to; social media, photos, and music. So it was hard to get excited about any of the phones out there. I am not a tech guy so it takes a bit to get me interested. Then the Moto Z came out. Different, big fan of different. But I am an AT&T user. So I couldn't get it. Then the unlocked came out. I bought it day one with ALL the mods. I use the extra battery every day. It is nice to go to work then come home and place the battery on a wireless charger and still have a fully charged phone in my hands. The speaker is awesome. I use it on my motorcycle. The projector is useful and fun. Sometimes I just lay in bed a project a show on the ceiling. The camera I have not used yet but I am excited about it. All that being said, my 15 year old asked for a new phone for Christmas. So I bought her the Moto Z play. You will not find a better $400 phone. All in all big fan. Functional, fun, well built, looks great. I will never buy a phone from a service provider again. Get the geek squad protection and enjoy owning your phone.

    Not Great Value Not Great Quality

    Considering the price I would have hoped that This mod had better value. The fact remains that without the Incipio Offgrid, my phone wouldn't be compatible with Wireless Qi charging. I don't actually even know if this is the variant that allows wireless charging I don't understand why there would need to be two different versions anyway. I don't like that there's no external charging port but if it can charge wirelessly with a mat I don't need the port, but I don't have one and I don't like the way it charges on my phone because it takes forever but that's the only option I have. If I could do it again I would have gotten the white variant. Also, if you drop your phone with this attached it could bend the plastic casing prohibiting the connection between the contacts on the phone and on the back up battery. It is it compatible with the Moto Z family and had no external output or inputs like other back up batteries have. I can't mount my phone to my car mount with this thing in the way.

    Had this a couple of days before returning it for the style shell with wireless charging. I bought it on sale for $55. It adds about a day or a little less in efficiency mode, which keeps your moto z at 80%. I drained the battery pack down to about 64% charging my phone roughly 26%. Its potential is fully utilized in efficiency mode. Recharging it takes less than 2 hours via wireless charger. Unfortunately everything moto, phones and mods, don't quick charge with anything other than moto's turbopower chargers (not that there's a wireless turbopower charger). I wouldn't recommend buying this at full price when a moto turbopower pack is available for the same price with 1200+ mAh more and turbopower charging capable (both with the wall charger to the pack, and from the pack to the phone). It is slightly slimmer, lighter, and better textured (slightly grippier) than the moto turbopower pack, though. Again, don't buy this at full price.

    A must have Mod for the MotoZ

    I was looking for a decent extended battery Mod for my slightly used Moto Z I acquired from a seller on Swappa.com. The phone came with an extended battery Mod by Tumi, but I found it ill suited for my liking due to it lacking Qi charging abilities. I soon found out about Incipio's offering: offGRID 2200 mAh. Not only did your device gain an extra 2200 mAh of power, but Qi charging as well (which is cordless for those wanting to know). I also found that the offGRID is a tad bit slimmer than the Tumi and IMHO looks better. The longest I've gone without a necessary charge (after offGRID and Moto Z battery are depleted), was a full 34.5 hrs. with moderate use and a full 18 hrs. screen time. Now keep in mind results may vary. For me though this is astronomical. Oh, and also... All Moto Mods are compatible with the current and future Moto Z offerings (Z, Z Force, Z Force Play, etc...). That alone is a win in itself.

    Battery Mod with Qi Wireless Charging

    I purchased the battery mod online for in-store pick up for those just in case moments where you're on a trip without your car charger (because not everyone has a USB-C car charger# and it works well. Surprisingly what isn't mentioned in the product description is that it also has wireless charging. It can be charged while it is connected to the Moto Z Droid/Z Force Droid, and it can be charged using a Qi Wireless Charging Pad #connected to the phone or by itself). Efficiency mode helps make the battery mod last longer while connected to the phone and keeps the phone charged at 80% until basically the mod's charge is drained.

    This is my favorite Moto Mod for my Moto Z Force Droid. It drastically increases battery life (by about 70%) without adding much bulk or weight, it also features wireless charging so that you can use a QI charger with your phone. The back of the mod is textured making it easier to grip the phone. I can easily go for two days without needing to recharge my device. It will also let me heavily use my phone for a good 24 hours whether I'm out taking pictures, playing music, and using Google Maps or playing Pokemon Go. The battery doesn't get in the way of the camera's flash either. This is a little pricey and Motorola/Lenovo is finally releasing first party battery Mods but, to my knowledge, none of them feature wireless charging and they all have smooth backs. I just wish that Incipio (or someone) would make more than a bumper so I could actually have my phone in a case while using the battery.

    The battery pack is easy to use and provides a decent amount of charge to help extend battey life. It just plan works and charges relatively quickly. It does make the phone bulky and very heavy when installed. Would only recommend using it to give an extra charge for the your phobe and not for daily use as it feels like I'm carrying an old Nokia phone with the extended battery (those old enough know what I'm talking about). It doesn't provide a full charge for my phone (Moto Z Play) but it helps extends me to close to 3 full days without having to plug it in to a wall charger. Would recommend if you got a good deal. A pretty expensive battery pack compared to aftermarket options with much less power but it charges very quickly. I got mine as a promotional offer when preordering my phone. Otherwise I wouldn't pay full retail for one of these though.

    Purchased this for a Droid Force and it works perfectly. Combined with the main battery I can get 2 days of use out of the phone, I've never even gotten 24 hours before with brand new phones. The wireless charging is very convenient and I would never buy one without it. With the wireless you can charge the pack by itself while still using the phone. It honestly makes it easier to hold the phone with it on as it has a nice textured back and it's barely thicker with it snapped on than my old Maxx with a thin case. I would highly recommend this even just as an alternative to a battery bank and will probably buy a few more.

    Super slim

    I got the Incipio Off grid power pack Moto Mod for free when I preordered the Moto Z Play from Best Buy. Such a great offer and I love the product. First of all, the battery pack is a lot slimmer than I thought it would be. The thing is actually thinner than my phone itself. Also, it is very easy to use. You just "slap" it on the back and it starts charging your battery in a flash. No set up and no hassle. Also, the wireless charging feature is incredibly useful. And if your worried this battery will not last as long as you would like, don't worry about it. This thing lasts for hours on end, allowing me and my device to do more.

    Thus far, this battery pack has been great! The main reason I'm writing a review is that I wanted to clarify a concern I had when shopping for this item. Although I searched several different sites, reviews, etc., I could not find out if this pack would allow a phone to stick to a magnet mount, as I did not want to stick a metal plate on the back of it, and thus potentially interfere with wireless charging. Just to assure anyone else in the same boat, it IS indeed able to stick to a magnet mount, and well...so well, in fact, I have to make sure to grab the phone by covering the edges of the battery to ensure that it does not remain stuck to the Aukey car vent magnet mount in my vehicle when I remove my phone.

    wireless charging has some issues...when it is connected with my moto z2 play, it detects but no charges... every 10 or more seconds it would show detecting charge but stays at that way. certain brand names work with this like Belkin with 15 W output. charges fine with out phone full battery. default will eat the battery to keep the 100% on phone gets the job done but runs dead by the end of the day. efficiency could last 2 days until night before charge maybe 3 if you do not touch it at all. like leaving it at work locker or car. other than that glad i bought it to see how wireless charging with 2220 mAh of power bank can do thank you best buy! sell us more cool stuff!!!!

    Love this mod. Not only does it give me an instant battery good for a good 5-6 hours of hardcore usage but it also gives a little more grip to your phone. Moto/Lenovo is not getting enough credit. This is my favorite phone so far and I have had iPhone, Samsung, HTC. This smart phone is just smarter. From notification glance to double chop flashlight. I could go on and on. I think they put there money into making a kickass phone. Instead of marketing.. hint hint Samsung

    When my wife's and my phones were new they lasted a day and a half. A year later mine has a hard time making it home at the end of the day. The added battery gets the job done. I also enjoy the wireless charging. I may not really have a problem with my phone's battery; I listen to internet radio about 6 hrs a day, have a fitness watch, use bluetooth headphones or use the speaker when making call. Yes I am hard on the battery. FYI if you have problems getting the battery to fully charge on the QI charger try turning you phone so it is landscape instead of portrait.

    This battery mod attaches easily to the back of any Moto Z phone. It allows you to continue using the phone without being limited by a cord when your battery is low. If you put this on when your battery is about 15% and keep using it, the mod will recharge your phone well past the 50% mark. Also, this mod charges wirelessly (Qi charging) whether connected to the phone or not. If it is connected to the phone, it will charge the phone wirelessly as well. Fits snugly to the back of the phone and doesn't add much bulk. Moto Z Play gets such awesome battery life that it is rarely needed but it is nice to have anyway.

    I bought this before a conference so I'd have better battery life. It did the job well for the week...but the weekend after I returned from the conference it stopped charging (flashing red light and phone says the mod is at 0) no matter how long I charge it with either wireless or on the phone. Same results on my wife's phone, so I know it is not the phone. Second one I bought for my wife worked 2 days then same problem. So...guess I will be returning it or exchanging both for new one. Bummer...hope the replacement had a longer life span!

    I bought this with my z Force and put it on, configured it to "efficiency mode." I have not removed it since. The phone runs down to 80%, then this add on kicks in until it runs down, effectively giving the Force a 5700 mAh battery. I don't ever worry about running out of juice. Yes, it makes the phone very heavy and thick, but who actually cares? Battery life is very important to me, so it's a fine trade off, plus I can remove it if I ever want to travel lighter.
