    Not a good product!

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    I bought it for my trip to Italy and it was a waste of money, after fully charging it and plugged it in to my ipad, it over heated right away and only charged from 17% to 33% and it was completely drained.

    Nice looking product, but horrible quality!!

    Worked the first time... then....

    • Written by from NANTUCKET

    It charged the phone and Juice pack fine the first time; then it didn't. So I decided to remove the phone from the Juice pack. Easier said than done. Getting the end off was easy. Removing the phone required carefully breaking the juice pack piece by piece.
    I do not recommended this. Waste of money. I give one star for working once.

    Oversized, different connector, VERY fragile

    • Written by from PORTLAND

    My 2nd (and last) Mophie. The first (for iPhone 3S) worked 2 months then started draining the iPhone battery, actually shortening battery life. Heard it had improved, so bought the red one for my new iPhone 4S. I found:

    --Nice-looking, liked the way I could switch on Mophie power or battery-only.

    --It's so big it barely fit the purse pocket, and too big for my hands. It’s also slippery, which makes it more likely to be dropped.

    --The hardshell case rises above the side buttons, making them harder to reach. Even w/small fingers, I have trouble accessing the shutter button or volume controls.

    --It needs a microUSB connector, which means carrying TWO chargers instead of one.

    --Accessing the iPhone connector requires that you remove the bottom of the case. I use the connector 3-4 times/day and noticed that the friction clamps got looser and looser. I worried that eventually they’d get so loose the bottom of the case would come off on its own.

    --It slipped out of my hands and dropped about 2 ft to a wooden desk surface two weeks after purchase. The short drop caused an amazing amount of damage: The case bottom’s plastic completely cracked off one side, leaving only the electronics and a metallic strip hanging loose. Unless I’m holding the case bottom on (or tape it to the top of the case), it’s too loose to make the connection. Of course, if I tape it or glue it on, I can’t easily access the iPhone connector.

    --The warranty, according to the website, doesn’t cover breakage, so I’m pretty much out of luck. This case is far too fragile to justify $80 and I’m not buying it (ever) again.
