    So that you wouldn't need to leave it on the whole time.
    I understand, but I prefer not to leave it without a back, which means I need to bring yet another case or back for it.

    As a side note, this is why I didn't buy the Force or the Play. I know there are a ton of good things about those phones (including never really needing a battery mod), but if I leave a mod on my Z it just makes it more like a normal sized phone.

    Can you leave it in your phone all the time or is it only for charging when you need it?

    You can definitely leave it on if you want, but according to AC it's about as thick as the 2016 Moto Z Play, so that would be a VERY bulky device. It's designed to be carried with you (annoying), and then slipped on for a quick charge when you need it.

    Double post. Sorry.

    I googled the new moto battery mod and found three companies taking pre-orders. B&H, Fry's and Verizon Wireless. I pre-ordered mine from Verizon Wireless. They are showing a ship date of August 10th.

    Strangely, Best Buy has *a* Moto Mods battery on their site, but it's not the Turbopower pack. It's a 2200mAh one, smooth back, $50. Never heard of it before.

    Yep, that's strange. What the heck is that? I know there was a Tumi, an Incipio (I own one) and a Kate Spade (wife own one), but never heard of that one. And it doesn't look like the new Moto battery Mod? And the site says "compatible with most Moto Z phones"...?

    The Moto Power Pack was the one mentioned at Mobile World Congress and was to be released in the spring but was delayed. It is now launching when the Z2 Force launches but it isn't yet on the US Moto website. In Mexico they included it in the box with the Moto Z2 Play and called it a "Power Edition". It was supposed to have a variety of colors but I have only seen black and white so far.

    I am starting to wonder if there is some kind of problem with the Turbopower Pack preventing the wide release. Not necessarily related to the power storage/charging, but maybe the software, fit/finish, etc.

    I heard that it requires Moto Mod platform 1.6 and that still has to be pushed to some regions as an update

    The release seems to be connected to the release of the Z2 Force.

    Regarding the Moto mod software, mine is at version 2

    I for one no longer care about the tubo power pack. Just picked up the Moto external Power Pack and it's terrific. Very low profile, noticeably lighter than the Incipio battery mod (which I have but will be sending back), and I like the texture on the back. Furthermore, **much** cheaper! I'm 100% impressed!

    If you just got this at Best Buy right before they dropped the price, call them up and they'll credit your account for the difference. I did that yesterday and was credited $10 plus the tax.

    I got my TurboPower mod today. The rubber back is great and it works well with the Verizon bumper. I really like the low profile.

    Just to clarify, you received the Turbopower battery mod, 3490 mAh. Are you leaving it on all the time? How is the weight when it's on the phone?

    I purchased mine from Verizon Wireless. I actually pre-ordered it in early August.

    That is the one I purchased. I head it on my phone all day yesterday. It is obviously heavier than the regular phone. I also have the soundboost2. It is lighter than that.

    After awhile I got used to it. Today I took it off when the battery mod was fully drained. The regular phone seemed so much lighter.

    I could see myself keeping it on more than I planned too. I waited for this one because it can both turbo charge the phone and be turbo charged.

    Based on my usage patterns over the last several months, I don't need a battery mod for a normal day. On days I go to events or go out taking tons of pictures and videos, it's nice to have. The challenge of buying USB C chargers that are manufactured correctly made the purchase of the TurboPower mod a no brainier. I already bought a name brand USB C car charger that killed my first Moto Z Force.

    Which Z do you have? How do you plan to use the mod, 24/7 or just to charge when needed? How's the weight and bulk?

    I have the Z Force. I plan on using it 24/7 like my Incipio mod. To me it doesnt seem like that much weight has been added. I like some weight to my phone. The grips on the back of the mod are nice to help when holding.
