    Not as good as I thought it'd be

    • Written by from Bellingham

    I've been using mophie products for awhile now. I love them. I don't love the space pack, however. The case itself is just like any other juice pack air (slightly heavier and longer).

    While the device was able to hold up to 32gb of storage (actually 31.9 because of formatting), mophie for whatever reason limited the size of a file that can be transferred to the space pack to just 4gb. I was shocked that there was a file size limit in the first place. It's completely ridiculous if you ask me. So for those of you who have big video files that you wanted to put on the space pack, sorry to say that it is not going to work.

    The other issue I had was with photo sync. When you turn it on, it syncs all the photos that are currently on the phone to the space pack, you can watch the progress in the space app. According to the user manual from mophie's website, the space pack is supposed to automatically sync photos taken on your phone every time the space app is opened. However, not once did the space pack ever automatically sync new pictures taken on my phone. I would have to turn off/on the photo sync switch to get it to finally sync. Never would it do it automatically and that's the whole point of the device. Mophie advertises that the mophie will automatically sync your pictures and videos into the space pack. Yeah, it doesn't do it. Sorry mophie, but this product was poorly executed.

    Sadly not worth the money

    • Written by from Stendal

    Honestly, I love the mophie products and I was very happy with the simple battery case. But I thought it's a great idea to add storage to my phone so I bought the 32Gb storage pack. Sadly it's not working for me:

    My use case was to have all my pictures on my phone and not being limited to the inbuilt storage anymore. I synced all may pictures from camera roll and moved the pics from iphoto on the storage, but it's not working at all: Rendering the previews takes ages and is not happening in the most cases, when you click on the image it's just showing a blank white screen. Completely disappointing and a waste of money. Just stick to the normal Battery case.

    Better Than I Thought It Would Be

    First of all, the 4 GB file size limit is inherent to the FAT32 file system. It has nothing to do with Mophie artificially imposing an unnecessary limit.

    This pack works exactly, and the size and weight are only slightly more than previous models. It is also the first iPhone 5/5S from Mophie to support wired syncing, which is a big deal to me.

    Slightly disappointed

    • Written by from YORKTOWN HEIGHTS

    I have had a 16g spacepack on my 16g 5s for a few days now, I primarily purchased it for the storage aspect, as the battery life has never really been an issue. And honestly it works great, syncs my photos and videos automatically which frees up the memory on the actual phone for me to add whatever music I want. My beef is with the battery, I am not exaggerating when I say that my battery life has been worse with this thing on, the phone dies about two hours earlier than without the case at all. Hoping I have a defective unit, I am Going to exchange it for a new one and probably upgrade to the 32g model, fingers crossed that I just have a dud because this thing is great. I don't mind having to wait a whole second to load 1 of 3k photos from an external device nor that I can't fit a file larger than 4gb file on there. One more thing, if it was possible to make this case why not have a micro sd slot instead? Maybe that's crossing the line with apple lol

    Not worth the money

    • Written by from Scarsdale

    I bought mine in April 2014. At the time, it would take my iPhone 5S from 7% to 80-85%. As of today (9/7/14), it will only charge it from 5% to 45-50%.

    I've also had problems transferring movies from iTunes to it (you cannot transfer video, music, images or docs to it from the phone).

    All in all, a disappointment for as much as it costs. Save your money and just get the $80 battery pack - it still won't take your phone's charge back to 100% from 0%, but you won't be as mad as you would spending $100 more for this model.
