Power and Style
By John Braunstein
So far, I love my new case. I tend to be a heavy user (texting, music & game playing) and so I usually have to recharge my iPhone by late afternoon. This new case has solved that issue. In the 2 weeks that I have had it, I have yet to have to recharge it during the day. When I plug it in at night, I like how the case allows the phone to charge first and then it charges the case.
I also like the way the case looks and feels. I used to have a silicon case for my old BlackBerry and I loved it. With this iPhone case, I get a nice black finish (very stylish) with the feel of silicon. And it’s super thin (again like my old BlackBerry case).
I have no idea what the reviewer Jim is talking about. When I first got my iPhone 4, I definitely had the antenna problems that so many others were having, but I got my free bumper from Apple and the problem was solved. Since I have switched over to this case, not only have I not noticed any signal issues (aside from the usual ones created by AT&T), it seems that my signal strength may have improved. Now, I’m not sure if I am imagining the improved signal or not, but I do know that the case performs as well (if not better) as the Apple provided bumper that I was using before.

Not bad if you can find it cheap
By J. Centers
– The extra battery life is fantastic. Easily another 5-6 hours.
– You can charge and sync the iPhone via the case’s microUSB port. The iPhone will charge before the case.
– Camera cut-out is large enough to not interfere with the flash.
– Silicone is a lint magnet, albeit not as bad as the Otterbox.
– Case blocks the dock connector.
– Bottom ridge scuffs my Zagg screen protector.
– Volume and lock buttons are hard to push.
– Actually syncing while the phone is in the case is touch and go at best.
– MicroUSB port is on the side of the case, near the bottom, which means I can’t charge it while it’s in my car dock. Very awkward.
I found this case for $30, and for that price it’s a steal. But at $60-70, I would probably go with one of the Morphie Juice Packs.

Works well, is handy and convenient. Not perfect.
By James T. Jacobs
I ordered two; one for my wife, one for me. The positives: The case is not bulky or too heavy. It fits and protects the iPhone 4 well, and is no larger than most of the protective cases we already have. (I always carry my phones in a protective case.) If you start with a full charge on the phone and the case, you will have a very long use time, depending on what you’re doing with it. I tend to do things that drain the battery such as playing 3-D games and using GPS apps such as using it as my bicycle computer and navigator on long rides. This will keep me from running out of juice in the middle of nowhere when riding weather returns.
The negatives: There is a button to push on a bottom corner of the case to see how much charge you have left. It also functions to put the case in “quick charge” mode, so if you are charging the phone while it’s in the case, it will charge the phone first, then the case. Otherwise, it charges both at the same rate.
The button on my wife’s case works. The button on mine does not.
I’m not going to send it back, because otherwise it charges properly and works fine, and I like it. I charge the case separately from the phone, so the quick charge mode isn’t important to me. When I plug it in, the dots properly flash one at a time to show you how far the charge has progressed. (According to the instructions, there should be five lights, but there are only four.) I don’t really need the button function to know how much charge is left. If you start with the phone and the case fully charged, the case will keep feeding the phone, so the phone will continue to read 100% charge until the case is drained. Then, you will have the normal expected phone charge left.
This beats the little back-up batteries which plug into the end of the phone, because it is a protective case as well.
