Question Are There Any Battery Pack Cases For the PRIV?

Please Login to Remove!

Silly question, but given the age of my phone, the lack of a PRIV 2 to replace it, and the lack of a user replaceable battery, my PRIV can't go nearly as long on a charge as it used to. Did anyone ever make a battery pack case (Mophie Juice Pack or the equivalent) for the BlackBerry PRIV? I hate having to CONSTANTLY have a way to charge the phone close at hand, and my Quick Charge 2.0 power bank is too large to carry with me everywhere I go.

The pack you have is what is used but if you want to try, there are a few internet videos that show how to replace the battery. There are a few others on the internet. I would watch a few to be sure of how to do it.

The problem with the typical external power bank (I use one from the brand RAVPower that does Quick Charge 2.0) is that it's too large and heavy to carry around in all situations. That's why I'm looking for a Mophie Juice Pack or equivalent that fits on the phone as a CASE:



I also have neither the time, nor the steadiness of hands, to want to mess with replacing the internal battery on my phone.

Ok , Amazon has a few shown that attach like a cell phone case/cover. You might see if any will work for you.

Unfortunately, when I try to narrow the results to show options for the BlackBerry Priv, it gives me no results for that phone.

Just curious, did BlackBerry ever sell one? My sense is if BlackBerry didn't sell one then there isn't one made for the device. And I don't remember seeing one when browsing the BlackBerry store back in the day.

I found limited info on what they fit when it comes to blackberry phones.

While some people are comfortable with buying an OEM replacement battery, cracking their phone open, and replacing it themselves, my hands definitely ARE NOT steady enough and gentle enough to do that sort of thing without causing irreparable damage to my phone.
