5.0 out of 5 stars A very decent extended battery for your iPhone 5, 19 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have always been sceptical of these (after a couple of duds on my iPhone 4S), instead opting to carry about an external battery and cable.

However, I am pleasantly surprised by this one.

It is well made (actually I did have a tiny crack - almost invisible - on the top cover, but this was replaced very promptly and free of charge, and the vendor was most helpful!).

So, it feels solid, and the plastic is not the cheap plasticy plastic that you sometimes get. It feels and looks well made. The back of my unit is white and the top and bottom covers silver. Looks fine.

It *does* add bulk and weight to the phone, but that's inevitable. However, it still feels fine in the hand as is just as usable as before. The additional weight took me a while to get used to.

It more than doubles the life of my existing battery (which is getting old and unhappy), so I can easily get a full 24 hours of use out of it now.

The microUSB port acts as a pass thru properly - and you can both charge and sync via it.

4 tiny blue LEDS on the back of the battery pack indicate charge level of the extra battery. They work well and look good.

It's not possible to get any of my headphone jacks into the headphone port now, with the additional length of the bottom cover, but it's not a big deal for me and the bottom cover can be removed to get headphones in.

I've had it a few weeks now, still working well.

Surprised that I am this happy with it, hence a rare review from me !
