This review is from: mophie Black 1700 mAh Juice Pack Air Rechargeable External Battery Case for iPhone 5 2105JPAIP5BLK
Pros: Charging works as described.
Cons: The mini-USB charging port does not provide pass-though connectivity to the iPhone port. Slick finish coupled with beveled edges and rounded corners means that the case is difficult (though it is snag-free in pockets).
Other Thoughts: This battery case is very thin with rounded edges and a beveled back. Many would see these as strong positives. But, even though I usually keep my phone (with case on it) in a front pants pocket, this is not a plus for me. The Mophie case is so slick and beveled/rounded that I have a hard time literally gripping the case. It goes in the pocket well... but is really difficult to hold for any length of time. Also, I really dislike the wi-fi syncing on the iPhone and find the cable syncing to be much faster and more reliable. Coupled with the lack of pass through capability of the Mophie's case, the slick finish and difficulty to hold seemed to be a deal-breaker, and I ordered an alternate case from Newegg that works much better for me.
