    pretty darn good

    • Written by from Aurora

    I've had this for my iPhone 5 for 20 months and it has worked as advertised. I normally have it switched off til the iphone battery is about gone, and then I get hours more use. Love it. The lack of lightning connector has not bothered me. I have several micro charging cords laying around and can charge the Mophie and iPhone from either a wall plug or in the car. [I have not used any adapters] I also have several earphones laying around; I simply tried them all until I found one with a small enough casing around the pin to plug it directly into the iPhone (thru the Mophie). Works just fine. I very rarely take the phone out of the case.

    The only negatives I have are minor. I agree with others that decreasing the slickness of the case would reduce the drops. I have dropped mine several times with no damage to the phone. As for charging, only in the last couple of weeks, have issues cropped up with the Mophie battery. Although all 4 LEDs are lit, it now only delivers a partial charge to the phone. And as others have noted, the base does sometimes get warm, but I haven't seen any other issues as a result.

    Overall, I think this is a great product and it has saved me from running out of juice on many, many occasions.

    I live in NYC so I walk around a lot and take the trains. I am not near a charger for the majority of the day and using LTE runs through my battery. I have had the case for over a year and it works fine. Mophie even sent me a replacement when the case chipped. I have dropped the case several times and it still works fine. I did drop the phone while it was on the charger and bent the charger so I had to get a new chord. Thats the only time it didn't work well. If you bend the pin that plugs into the case, it will cause the phone to act weird.

    The only reason I give it 4 stars is the connector chord for the earphones. They short fairly fast, been through a couple. When they short while you are using them they cause your phone to do all sorts of weird things like, shut off, play music, end your call, etc. Otherwise, the case has done me well.

    Decent charging case that protects

    • Written by from Woodland Hills

    Well coming from a 4s whose battery life was roughly 2 hours i craved all day battery life and bought this case for my 5s. The gray looked good on the black model so i went for it. The speakers are slightly louder than stock, the battery life is on par with advertised. Just wish it came with a screen protector for 80$. Youll notice the bulk if your coming from a nude 5 but if your coming from a 4 or 4s its not that bad. The connector is more universal had several other (i think micro usbs?) laying around. Just seems like the actual port on the phone case for this connector wont last the products lifetime. The audio in/out jack (includes an extender) is somewhat trouble but not everything is perfect i can cope. Lastly the button for the battery life of the case must be distincly pressed or it wont bring up the leds. Minor problems but I can deal for 180% battery life (including the phones life)

    Mophie happy

    • Written by from Plainfield

    I have used the extra battery several times and it has worked well. i leave the mophie switch in the off position until the iphone battery is low, then i switch the mophie on and it charges the iphone battery. Then i shut off the mophie switch. This can be done several times to extend the iphone battery. When the mophie is charging the iphone, the unit gets very warm. I wish the mophie charge port matched the iphone lightning port instead of its mini usb as it requires travelling with 2 cables. however, i charge the mophie while the iphone is encased and this way i charge the mophie and the iphone.

    Does what it says

    • Written by from SALE

    I have had my morphia case for just a couple of weeks and it has operated fine..... I did what they suggested and switched to the case when my battery indicator reached 20% and my phone was then fully charged so the 80% additional capacity claimed seems true.

    The only fiddly issue, as reported elsewhere, is that a small extender may be needed in order to use the headphones socket. This is supplied.

    I also found it a little scary when I first used the case as I couldn't see exactly how to separate the bottom part of the case and this requires a fair amount of force. However I persevered and managed to separate them and insert my phone ok - to some extent it is reassuring that the pieces fit together so tightly.

    Please note also that with the case on you cannot connect your phone using the apple USB lead. The supplied Micro-USB is fine but only charges and does not sync. Thus to sync with the Morphie case you will need to sync via WiFi. Not a problem in my case but just something to be aware of.

    Great Battery

    • Written by from Superior

    I am on job sites or planes all the time, therefore the morphie is a great tool for me! However as a case its lacking. The only way to carry is "in the pocket" or in your breifcase or other, there is no belt clip option or any known cases for which this combination can fit. So if you desire a long long long life battery option, this is your case. If you want a belt clip case, this is not for you.

    Like the case, but micro usb vs lightning?

    • Written by from Hermitage

    Doesn't make sense that I can't use the same cord to charge both the phone & case. I know if i have the phone in the case I have to use the micro usb cord. But not to be able to use the lightning seems silly to me.

    Love the helium, wish I'd waited for the air

    • Written by from Glendale

    I really do like the helium, it is light, does its job and is a quality product that I've come to expect from mophie. I really do wish I'd waited for the juice pack air however as I think my battery would last longer w/the air. However, for the price difference I don't think it's that much of an issue as I don't usually need more than the 8 hours coverage.

    Either way, it's another great product from mophie.

    Mophie almost as good as the last model

    • Written by from New York

    I am a big lover of the Mophie Juice Pack (Helium) but this one is different. The body is not slick but more of a rubbery feeling which to me is not as nice looking or complimentary to my white iPhone. The power button on the back is also very difficult to slide in order to power on or off. You can barely get a grip on it. I do love it as a battery but the shinier finishes and the old switch was much nicer ... why change a good thing?

    Good but not as good as I thought

    • Written by from Cardiff

    Got mine in the post today I'll be testing it's extra juice capabilities throughout the day, the phone doesn't slip into the case because of curved bits of plastic attached to the bottom of the case so I needed to prise it in, after clipping on the battery bit I found the fit is nowhere near as snug to the phone as I thought, not completely dissatisfied but could be a bit more polished for the price

    Extra juice on the go

    • Written by from South San Francisco

    This is a nice extra battery for the iphone 5, one thing that might be a hassle is that when you want to sync your phone with iTunes, you have to pull the lower case out. Other than that, it's a nice add on to the phone's battery life on the go or just at home.

    So far so good!

    • Written by from Ottawa

    Great sturdy case that gives a comfortable weight and feel to the iPhone 5. The extra battery life and ability to charge my phone on the go is a huge plus. I will say that I only got one charge from the case but it was a full charge and you can't go wrong with that when you have kids that like to play games or view videos!
    Would be nicer with a slight lip around the screen to protect from any flat falls or bumps. The extension for the headset was a great thought. The only down side is the phone connector can't be reached through the case so a little challenge for our car charger to connect to the phone.

    Great job!

    Great Product !!!

    • Written by from MIAMI BEACH

    I love the Mophie the only default to this product is that the iPhone does not fit in comfortably in my pocket.

    Other than that, it is great for traveling and recharging when need to.

    Buy it !

    I like it

    • Written by from Florissant

    I like it a lot - the feel, size, and music sound is improved because of the case, the charging capability is working well as backup power. My only hesitation is I'm having a hard time figuring out how to plug the female mini USB on the Morphie into my car stereo cable (after market) with the old male Apple 30 pin and male lightning adaptor I have for my old iPod. After chatting with Apple a few times & searching Amazon - looks like I'll need to go to the car stereo guys and have a different cable installed. More $$ down the tube. I would have wished for lightening on iPhone 5 to lightning on Morphie Juice Pack Helium.

    Great except....

    • Written by from Clive

    This is great case. It does not make the phone much larger and is a better design than the mophie for 4S. You can also still use the apple headphones without using the included extension which is a plus as I don't want to lose another piece functional hardware.
    My only complaint is that if this is an Apple approved device why didn't they put the lightning charging port on it. I really don't want to carry an additional charger.
    I would recommend and would buy again.

    A little long

    • Written by from blaine

    I have owned all the iPhones. I mostly kept them "naked". I always purchased a case for each of my iPhones for when riding my Harley. For my iPhone 5 I decided to keep it in a case and decided to get the Mophie. So far I like it. Initially I was worried it was going to be too big and too long. Because at work I wear a uniform with shirt pockets with a flap. It fits perfectly. The Mophie and the iPhone charges fine when connected to power and it is a bit slow to recharge the iPhone when you turn the Mophie on. The case feels soft and sleek in your hand and the length took some time (a day or two) to get used to but I really like it. I believe I will keep the iPhone 5 covered in the Mophie Juice Helium for the life of the phone or the case.
