How do I pair my powerstation 5x/8x with Bluetooth®?

The powerstation 5X and powerstation 8X batteries feature Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE), and can be paired with a mobile device that has the free mophie Power app installed. The mophie Power app lets you manage the battery life of your powerstation battery and the paired device.

To pair the powerstation battery with your mobile device:

1. Install the free mophie Power app on your mobile device. It is available at the App Store (iOS® devices) and at Google Play® (Android® devices).

2. Make sure your device’s Bluetooth® is turned on.

3. Press-and-hold the powerstation battery’s status button for four (4) seconds. The status LEDs will flash in sequence from left-to-right and right-to-left, indicating that the powerstation battery is in the pairing mode.

4. Launch the mophie Power app on your device. The home screen will appear:

5. Tap the Add Device icon. A list of nearby Bluetooth® devices will appear. Select “powerstation 5X” or “powerstation 8X” from the list and tap “Pair” on the pop-up screen.

6. The Registration page will appear. You can either register your powerstation battery at this time or tap “Skip” to register it later.
