This isn't the greatest deal on a Moto Mod battery pack (that would've been AT&T clearancing a bunch for $10 in 2017). But it's the only one I've been able to find since I got my Z2 Force in September. Manufacturers seem to be abandoning the Moto Mod space. All the battery mods are discontinued, with the remaining inventory on Amazon and eBay being marked up to $100-$150. Closest I see is a Mophie Moto Mod on Amazon for $70. I was hoping a decent deal on a battery mod would show up during Black Friday, or Motorla would introduce a new battery mod for the Z3. But no such luck.
So while $59.99 isn't a great price, it's the only Moto battery mod I've been able to find for less than MSRP in 3 months of searching. Sprint has put it on clearance (a whole $20 off).

Shipping is free if you have it delivered to a local Walgreens or RiteAid for local pickup. ($10 extra if you have it shipped to your home.) It may also be available in Sprint stores. I didn't check since Walgreens is a lot closer to me than a Sprint store.

- 3490 mAh, should add roughly a day of battery life.
- Compatible with all Motorola Z phones (snaps onto the back).
- Has a row of LEDs in back to let you see the charge state of the battery pack.
- Recharges your phone's battery at 15W.
- Recharges from a wall socket at 30W (50% in 20 minutes) if you have a USB-C charger capable of putting out that many Watts.
- You can configure the Motorola Z phones to have battery mods either keep the phone's built-in battery at 100% to maximize runtime, or 80% to reduce battery wear.
- You're supposed to be able to plug the charger into the battery pack to recharge the phone (i.e. it charges both phone and battery pack). But I'm seeing mixed reviews about this feature (not) working.
