This review is from: Powerseed External Power Bank Case with Stand for Samsung Galaxy S4 i9500/i9505
Pros: Does add battery life to the phone!
Cons: Activates if set face down on a table, or sliding into a pocket, the button is overly sensitive and DOES NOT require a long press to turn on. If charging battery pack while phone is attached to the case, it gets VERY hot. Battery capacity is listed at 3200mAh, but will only charge my 2600mAh battery to 70% before it dies. (this is while the phone is in "power saving"mode and not in use.) The clips for the plastic slides that lock the case on the phone were loose on day one.
Other Thoughts: I've found myself carrying this with me instead of placing it on the phone, the extra weight, small charge amount, and the charging button don't justify keeping it on the phone 24/7.
Power button had to be removed to keep it from activating it whenever the phone was set down. I had to disassemble it and rebuild the small clips for the slide lock as well.
Pros: By all means the mobo looked like a good deal.
Cons: 1st DOA, 2nd failed after first reboot. I'm hoping it was just a bad batch.
Other Thoughts: Newegg took care of all the problems. (+4 stars for Newegg)
Calling the manufacture's help line sent me to a support line that didn't answer, that forwarded to what it called an operator, that forwarded back to the help line. It stated that hours during the week started @ 9:00a, while my calls were between 10:30a and 12:30p.
Pros: it works, <3 modular.
Cons: None so far.READ FULL REVIEW
