3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite there., 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This external battery works very well.
I also feel it may hold more charge than my iPhone 4.
Instructions are a tad vague, but it is pretty simple.
Press the button on the back to check the external battery status. Flick the switch on the bottom to charge the phone.
It works, and works well.

However, I've taken 2 stars off because of the design.
At the time of writing this, there are 3 x different versions. One with a lid, and two without.
I purchased the one with the lid.
The lid is awful. It flaps around and feels like it wont last long.
The volume buttons don't quite line up, and it's virtually impossible to switch the speaker on/off.
Sometimes the phone will partially slide out and wont charge until pushed back in.

At this price, I considered purchasing one of the others (without the lid), but then I noticed that the sides come flush with the screen. If the sides sat proud of the screen, it could have offered some screen protection.
With a little more thought and design, this would have been a 5 star product.
