1 x 3000mAh White External Pack for iPhone
Top Customer Reviews
This external battery pack is very easy to fit for the iPhone 4/4s. There is a top clip that pulls off and the phone just slides in and down onto the 30 pin dock connector at the bottom. The top clip is a little difficult to line up to re-fit but is not amazingly annoying to do.
Once fitted the pack almost doubles the thickness of the phone and probably doubles the weight, but I haven't gone as far as weighing the pack to get an exact comparison. It gives the phone a "chunky" feel which will be a matter of personal preference as to whether you like it or not. I find that a "naked" iPhone tends to slip out of my grip far too easily so the matt finish on the battery pack is quite useful.
The pack has a simple on/off switch to initiate charging the phone; an LED to indicate when it is being charged or is charging the phone; a 30 pin dock connector to charge the pack itself and a USB out port which allows you to charge external devices other that an iPhone via their USB ports. Useful.
The pack charges full in about three hours after discharging into the phone and at the moment is giving the phone about one and a half full charges before the pack itself needs recharging. The only "gotcha" is that you have to charge the battery pack via the dock connector but this doesn't charge the phone at the same time.Read more ›
There is a tiny flip out stand which works well but I find it difficult to flick the stand out because I have short finger nails and the notch to realise it is a little too small but at least the stand will not accidentally release it your pocket and break off.
Size: I was expecting this to make my iPhone the size of a brick, although it does add some thickness (about 3/4 of the actual phone) it was better than what I was expecting. Also it's easy to remove the phone form the case when you need to, but it can be a tad fiddly.
Also the USB port on the size of the case can charge another device as well. Maning if you need to charger another device at the same time as your phone you can do so or you can just charge another device via USB and not the phone (when the phone is removed from the case).
All in all this product is not bad for the price (not great) but it is good for £10. If you need something quickly, it will serve it's purpose. If you will upgrade your phone in a few months and sick of your battery dying constantly then this is a cost effective way of boosting it for the interim months until you upgrade. I have had this product for a few months and it works find but even if it doesn't work for longer than a few months for the cost you have nothing to loose.
I have already recommended this product to a few family members and friends and they were impressed.\
Hope this helps. :)
The kickstand is really handy, especially if you stream video - it puts the phone just at the right angle for viewing.
Other than that, these are the only reasons for not a full 5 stars:
1. Would be nice to have a bit of screen protection to prevent scratches.
2. Would be nice if the On/Off switch had a third switch position so that you can charge the iPhone directly without having to remove it from the power pack.
3. Sometimes the power pack gets quite hot when charging the phone - has never caused a problem, but knowing how explosive lithium batteries can be... I do occasionally raise an eyebrow and take it out of my pocket for a few minutes to cool.
After claiming back to Amazon and the seller i was contacted with suggestion on how to fix it but none of these worked and therefore the seller agreed to send me a replacement FOC and did not require me to send the 1st one back. After a await of 20 days i received the replacement and after charging it as instructed but not before having issues with the USB port not making a good contact. Final got it to charge and the led light to stay on. After a charge of more than 8hrs i tried to charge my iPhone 4 at first i thought it was ok but after a few mins it stopped charging and would not restart even turning it off & on.
I have written again the Amazon and the seller asking for a total refund so will have to see if that happens.
Don't buy this product it does not work!!!!
