When the Moto Z and Moto Z Force were announced earlier this year, Lenovo touted the fact that you could slap mods onto the back of these smartphones to extend their functionality. Touting them as "Moto Mods". When it was announced, there were three Moto Mods. The JBL SoundBoost, the Incipio offGRID battery pack and the Insta-Share Pico Projector. A few months later, Lenovo introduced the Hasselblad True Zoom Moto Mod with the Moto Z Play. Now they have just announced a couple of new Moto Mods that are available for all three Moto Z smartphones, and did also promise that there would be more coming in 2017.
First up is the Incipio Car Dock. This Moto Mod will cost you $64.99, and it gives users the ability to mount their Moto Z, Moto Z Force or Moto Z Play in the car. On top of mounting the smartphone, it can also be charged and connect to the audio system within the car. Since the Moto Z and Moto Z Force do not have a 3.5mm headphone jack, the Incipio Car Dock brings that along for the ride as well. This will attach to the air vent in the car, which means it'll likely be a bit lower than most people would like. But currently there isn't a model for mounting it on the dashboard.
For those that need a bit more battery, Mophie's Juice Pack is here. This one is a bit more expensive, coming in at $79.99, and provides 3000mAh capacity. That is actually more battery capacity than the Moto Z has to begin with. It does have a status indicator light, showing you how much juice is left in the Juice Pack. Remember that the Moto Z will also show you how much is left in the Mophie Juice Pack, like it does with the Incipio offGRID Moto Mod.
Currently, only the Mophie Juice Pack is available for purchase, and through Verizon. You can order it through the link below. There's no word on when the Incipio Car Dock will be available, nor when they will both be available through Motorola.com. Verizon is also running a special on Moto Mods right now, if you purchase the Moto Z Droid, Moto Z Force Droid or Moto Z Play Droid on an installment plan, you can get 50% off any Moto Mod, including the Mophie Juice Pack.Buy the Mophie Juice Pack (Verizon)
