    Battery fantastic, let down by a case that'll crack just inside a year

    • Written by from Oxford

    Purchased this battery pack along with the iPhone 4S and boy has it saved this heavy iPhone user from a lot of exhausted iPhone battery usage over the just a shade over a year now.

    Unfortunately, as others have said here, the Mophie *case* isn't without it's defects.
    About 6 months I too found the micro USB socket to have a slight amount of wiggle in the case, nothing too bad but not the same "as delivered" feel.

    And worst of all, the case in general - whilst the case part will all snap together with a fine positive feel to start off at the 10 month point the bottom part of the case that houses the indicator lights and USB port started to lose it's "click" and at 12 months I find fishing the iPhone out my pocket does always follow that this piece is still attached.

    The "silver" trim (on the black model) after 9 months has started to peel and crack away and I predict that further use will just encourage more peeling of the trim as it snags on pocket fabric.

    Would I buy another? No.
    Did I buy the Mophie Juice Pack Universal Powerstation PRO to take over this role? Yes

    It's a shame that the housing for this product is so poor and just about later a single year as I'll miss the convenience of a case with an excellent battery and ability to charge and data sync via micro USB port

    Amazing!

    I bought it recently and thought that my iPhone will weight more, however, it is not true! The case itself weighs almost nothing and the battery lasts longer. iPhone is better protected now, this product is truly amazing!

    Micro USB will brake rendering product USELESS

    • Written by from London

    With the poor iPhone 4S battery life, this product is essential - until it brakes. The second one I bought just went, both just over a year - and Mophie then say 'tough luck'. They won't acknowledge this is a design fault as has been shown by so many other users.

    You'll never be able to test the true life of this product because it is not designed to last that long.

    Look for another brand

    Shouldn't complain...

    • Written by from Bath

    Mine's just packed up, & I'm trying to decide whether to replace it with another, or the Juicepack Plus instead - as the latter's much heavier, I'll probably stick with the 'Air'. I've had mine just under 18 months, & still had a fair amount of power. I thought the micro USB port was the problem, but when I took a closer look at the inside of the lower part of the case, I found that where I'd been removing it from the rest - which was no mean feat for some time - the inbuilt however-many-pin plug that connects to the bottom of the iPhone had got damaged - the plastic was grazed & the metal bent. This happened where it came away one side before the other - not that I removed it that much. The main part of the case can be hard to remove too, so I guess the 'Plus' would be even harder. Having said that, I now don't fancy less convenience with an external top-up pack. Fairly resilient: only a couple of scratches to edge.

    Very unreliable.. 5 faulty in months!!

    • Written by from Sale

    Having this phone I knew the battery life was brilliant but the plugs and wires are absolutely horrendous!! I've had 5faulty wires, some just stopping work whereas most having to apply pressure under the wire where connected to phone for charge! Then two faulty plugs all of this was bought at Apple stores across the country! If I knew I had to keep buying charger I would have just opted for a better samsung or other competitor! Absolutely ridiculous!!

    Just.....OK

    I bought this several days ago and have been used for three times. I found that even I charged 100% of the battery case. The case can only charge my 4s for about 60% of battery (from 1% to 60%).
