    I recently purchased a new iPhone 5S and also purchased the Mophie Juice Pack too. I did this for a couple of reasons. First of al I recently purchased a new iPhone 5S and also purchased the Mophie Juice Pack too. I did this for a couple of reasons. First of all, I had one with my iPhone 4S and really liked it since I use my phone primarily for business and travel quite a bit. Secondly, they advertise that the charging is 100% which is more than the past models which helps to justify an increase in price. Having had success in the past it was a no brainer. However, the battery case does not charge 100%. Instead the most I get is an increase from 25% to 90% which is about what my previous case gave me at a lower price. While the output is okay it is 35% less than what is advertised and not worth the increased price! How can the company make such claims and justify the price increase when "real" life usage varies this much?

    When considering the purchase of this battery case keep this in mind. You will likely not get the 100% they claim and it's pricey. That said, if you can live with 65% then by all means make the purchase. Just know what your getting in reality

  • Why not a lightning receptacle on the bottom?

    The thing that I dislike about this charger is that it requires a mini-USB plug to charge it. If I own an iPhone 5 and I have cha The thing that I dislike about this charger is that it requires a mini-USB plug to charge it. If I own an iPhone 5 and I have chargers for it in my car, home and office that use the lightning plug, why would Mophie not use a female iPhone lightning compatible receptacle on the bottom of their case? That means always being forced to carry a separate plug/mini-USB cable to charge it. Why in the heck didn't they charge just a wee bit more to do it right?

    As much promise as the charging case held, the case was purchased all for convenience and there is nothing convenient about this design. Mophie: Why don't you come out with a model a little more expensive to cover your costs and do it right for the people who don't want one more special cable or adapter to carry around with them. Maybe somebody will listen and fix this mess.

    I purchased the Mophie Juice Pack because I was tired of having to re-charge my phone overnight, and again sometime during the nex I purchased the Mophie Juice Pack because I was tired of having to re-charge my phone overnight, and again sometime during the next day (usually once the charge got down to ~30%). I have a really nice, handmade, burled walnut case, and I was also concerned about missing the 'beauty' of the phone/case by using the plain black juice pack.

    Here's what I found:
    - The battery life is now very good. I charged the battery overnight on Sunday (as usual), used the phone all day on Monday (as normal), kicked in the juice pack after about 13 hours of being off the charger (which allowed me to go from 20% to 97% charge), then actually plugged my phone back in for the first time on Tuesday afternoon (with about 50% battery remaining). Just what I wanted.

    - I don't notice any significant loss of wi-fi signal

    - I occasionally notice a drop in about 1 bar of signal strength (so 4 bars instead of 5 in some places). However I still get 5 bars in lots of places, even with the juice pack case on the phone.

    - The juice pack didn't substantially increase the size of the phone (it actually was about the same thickness as my fancy case)

    - The phone's length changed a little bit (longer now w/ the juice pack), but that's not a bad thing as it feels good in my hand...actually a little more substantial. Plus, w/ the juice pack, the microphones on the bottom of the device are actually now more 'directed' towards my mouth. Siri and voice dictation seems to be more accurate now.

    - I was worried about difficulties of using the headphone extension plug, but i had to use it once, and it wasn't a big deal. Sound quality using the extension was still phone. I just added the extension to my accessories pack that i normally carry anyway.

    - I'd recommend to others who were looking for the same solutions.

    I've had this case for about 8 months now. This case does offer more phone protection as it covers all sides really well. A little I've had this case for about 8 months now. This case does offer more phone protection as it covers all sides really well. A little too well. In order to access the headphone jack, you now have to use an auxiliary extension cable that comes with the case. The only problem is that these cables give out and a replacement is to the tune of $10 each. After a little research, I found that many users had to replace their cable fairly soon and fairly often. If you don't utilize this extension, most headphone jacks won't fit into the Mophie case. My Bose earphones did fit but the fit was so snug that disconnecting became an issue and I eventually ruined a great pair of headphones.

    When I have found the need to charge my phone, I noticed the case gets pretty hot. Also, it will not charge my phone to 100% (another situation I have found many users have an issue with). My case did come with a charging cradle which I really like. The case does add some weight to the phone but it's what you can expect when adding a battery. Overall, I like the case but I dislike the lack of access to the headphone jack. It offers great protection to the phone but with subpar phone charging. In an emergency it will charge your phone enough to maybe 80% but I suppose that's much better than being on empty.

    Bought it towards the end of April and in the first week of June it all of a sudden stopped charging when connected to wall outlet Bought it towards the end of April and in the first week of June it all of a sudden stopped charging when connected to wall outlet or computer. Tried another cable and still would not charge. Also would not "pass through" to charge the iPhone if in the case. I used the pack about once a day to charge my phone, never dropped it and the connector wasn't bent. Contacted mophie customer support and was given a shipping label and RMA to send the unit back, got a replacement unit within a week.

    Three stars for the quick turn around for getting a replacement unit, too bad there is something wrong with this design given the other reviews. My fiancé's has one for the iPhone 4S and it has multiple scars from being dropped, still working after 1+ years. If yours fails for no good reason, then at least mophie will send you a new one quickly.
