    I would give 0 stars if possible

    • Written by from New York

    To make it quick, these cases DESTROY any battery life in your phone. It got to the point where my phone would die in about half an hour so I would have to flip the switch and turn the case on. I would do this about 4 times over the course of 4 hours, at which point both my phone and the case would die.

    So don't buy it. Save yourself the money and just buy a new phone.

    Not worth the $80 bucks mophie asks to fork up!

    • Written by from EDISON

    After doing extensive research…I thought I was making the right investment. I now have this for only two weeks and I am on my way to return this product. Issues I am having are; it doesn't take the charge. I have to move it around from outlet to outlet in my house like a crazy person, the mini USB design is a poor design to charge this case. The other thing I noticed is, the charging cable gets extremely HOT when plugged in wall jack charger. Not sure why that is. And quiet frankly, I don't see why I have to carry a laptop to charge this case. It defeats the purpose of the whole thing. Also, within two weeks of usage, this runs out of juice. What mophie claims of 500 full charge cycles is a complete false claim! I am extremely disappointed in this and like I said at the beginning of this review, I am on my way to returning this case. Mophie, needs to look at these reviews and address those issues and redesign their product for optimum charge / usage.

    Don't waste your money

    • Written by from Calgary

    I love the idea of this case - I use my phone for everything and take loads of pictures, so the idea of extra battery and space was attractive. The hardware though is cheap and does not last. I just lost my 2nd Mophie (as well as the pics stored there) because of the USB port that inexplicably and suddenly STOP CONNECTING WITH THE CABLE. For a while it was loose and I'd have to wiggle it about the find the connection, then it just didn't work at all. Now I've lost the photos I moved to the Space there as well, so I'm less than impressed with this product.

    Now I just carry a little portable battery pack for when the phone dies and I upload my pics to my Mac when I get full... It's a pain but there is no better alternative a t the moment.

    Bottom line: don't waste your $$.

    LOVE my mophie!!

    • Written by from Seymour

    I've had my Mophie for over 3 years. It has never let me down. It's great to have the extra battery readily available.

    I loved mine so much I talked my husband into getting one when he got his iPhone.

    The only negative I have is that the paint easily scratches. It doesn't affect the battery, just doesn't look as good anymore. Hubby's case is black and doesn't show scratches.

    I have recommended this product to many of my friends.

    It dies!

    • Written by from Union City

    Bought this with my upgrade to the 5s. Thought of having extra power was great since on on the road a lot for work UNTIL it didn't charge my phone anymore. Got it replaced and 2 weeks later. the case doesn't charge again. Could it be my phone? I just dont understand how my brand new 5s, would be broken. Perhaps unless created by Apple, this thing is a piece of junk...expensive junk. Off to the store I go!

    Love / Hate relationship

    • Written by from Clinton Township

    I have an Iphone 4S. I have been through 3. I don't mind the extra weight and size - I actually like that better. However, on the first two where you plug the charger in on the side, it became loose and i couldn't plug the cord in. On the third one - the on / off charger switch went nuts. I would turn it on to charge the phone and it would turn itself on and off and go crazy. I'm assuming the switch went bad. I hate being without a charged phone, but not buying another one. I am waiting for the Iphone 6 to come out and will decide if I want to spend all that money again - three add up.

    Total waste of money

    • Written by from Bridgewater

    It seemed like a great plan at first. Hey, double the power time of my phone! The first issue I had is that it makes my phone bulky and heavy, which is understandable since is is a battery after all. However, drop it once and forget about it. Mophie claims that this is a protective cover and battery all in one (they need to change that declaration to battery pack only). Perhaps if I dropped my phone on the couch, it would be okay, but since I dropped it on the floor, it instantly turned into a piece of junk. The unfortunate thing is that the area were the charger port is has less than an eighth of an inch of cover on either side, so that was where it was quite susceptible and where it broke. Had the charger port not been in such a stupid place, it might not have broken like it did. Now that it was that damaged, the one year warranty was moot, so I was left to fix it the best that I could so that I could still use the phone. It worked fine for a couple of months and eventually it started getting extremely hot to use and the charger port wouldn't work to charge it. So, I pretty much spent 80 bucks to use this thing for a few months before it was basically inoperable. Never again!

    Beards beware

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    This product works great. I no longer fear mid-day battery death. But a warning to unshaven men: your facial hair WILL get stuck in joint between case and phone. And it will hurt.

    Not worth it

    • Written by from new york

    It worked great for about a year - no issues. But it mysteriously stopped working 1 year (almost to the day!!) after purchase and for the amount of money I paid, it's not worth it. I will not be buying a new one.

    Mophie makes low quality, short life products

    • Written by from Whitefish

    This is the 2nd charger for my 5s, I returned the first when it stopped charging after 4 months, now I've had this for another 4 months and it's not charging. The surface of the cover gets easily scratched, I guess they make these to last 4 months, but for 80$ It's a rip-off.

    Piece of Junk

    • Written by from Santa Rosa

    My first Mophie, for 3GS, was great. The one for my 4S is junk. The connector for the charging cable became loose and broke after about a year. I've considered purchasing a new one, thinking mine might have been a fluke. After reading these reviews I see it was not. Many people have the same problem. For such an expensive item it should last a lot longer. I won't buy anymore Mophie products.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from Toronto

    Bought this 1 year ago, always had trouble with power & ringer on/off switches, but after 1 year & 2 weeks cannot use these buttons at all. Very disappointing!!!!! Is there any way to get a replacement other than buying a new one? I will not purchase another one.

    Mophie Jack

    • Written by from Palmer

    Product is just simply great. Sleek design, easy to pocket phone, easy to re-charge, accurate tight fit on i5 phone. Has saved me countless times with my battery hungry Apple iphone. Recharge time on iphone is lightening fast to 100%. Have been using it daily for 18 months with zero problems. Mophie does add weight to iphone but minor shortcoming for the extra battery boost. Worth every penny I paid.

    Faulty Power Jack

    • Written by from Frisco

    After using this 'juice pack' for only 4 weeks began having problems connecting the power to the battery. Even though the case has never been dropped and well taken care of, the input jack becomes lose and you have to wiggle the cable to get it to connect. Combine that with the constant pop-up window asking me if I trust this computer and you have a flawed very expensive product that has a known quality issue. In addition very difficult to use the phone when the power cord is plugged in because it extends out the side of the case instead of from the bottom. I wish I had read some of the reviews before buying this product. I relied on the fact that there was at least some quality control if it was being marketed through the AT&T store. I couldn't have been more wrong. Save yourself $89 and go with something other than this.

    Terrible Product. Don't waste your money!

    • Written by from Winfield

    I could not use the product! I do not get good service at my house, therefore the service i do get is crucial, and the mophie case made my phone lose service. The product would work great if you got good service all of the time, but it made my phone lose a bar of service at all times. I did not have a problem charging the case or my phone with the product, but i only used it for two days!

    Great design but bad charging jack

    • Written by from Jersey City

    I love the way this thing looks. It's got a great clean design and works well when it works. But unbelievably it's got a problem with the USB charging jack. I sent my first one back thinking it was defective. They sent me a new one. Immediately the jack loosened up and it charges intermittently like the one before. I thought it was me until I read the reviews from other buyers here. It's outrageous that they haven't recalled all of them and redesigned it.
