    Best case ever

    Posted
    Chava

    I purchased this case after looking at it for a couple weeks not sure if I wanted to pay 99.00 dollars for it when I saw it go on sale I went in for it I usually had to plug in my phone half way down my shift working 12 hours and now I go all day with out plugging in it does add a little bulk to your phone but I kinda like that i wait till my phone reaches 15percent and turn on my mophie case and it charges my phone up to 100 percent so I'm very pleased with my case this is kinda pricey but after a week or so of using it it's well worth the money I took it to Disneyland this weekend nd snapped alot of pics and videos and didnt worry about having my phone die on me on the other hand my wife's phone died so she was gelous

    Charges GREAT, Breaks FAST

    A jagged piece of plastic near the speaker broke off first time I dropped it. With a glass screen protector I still couldnt protect my phone with this case. Shouldn't really be called a protective case. But I do enjoy how it charges my phone to however much battery I want it to with the 4 led light up feature. Annoyed it just broke and my phone fell out of it after me having it for near 3 months, I dropped my phone about 10 times on different surfaces..the driveway killed the case. I had to take it off for one of my aux cords too. Gotta let the people know!

    Great Battery Pack That Works as Advertised

    This is a great battery pack that is able to recharge my S8 once per charge. At 2950mAh, it can almost fully charge a Galaxy S8 (3000mAh). It works best if the phone is turned off while the battery pack charges, as it will appear not to fully charge the phone if left on (as expected). It adds some bulk to the phone and I wish it were a slightly larger battery capacity for the added bulk (reason for 4 stars, not 5). That said I was excited to discover that Samsung Pay NFC/MST works flawlessly even with the battery case on the phone - I was not expecting this. Would give 4.5 stars if I could.

    Works great - One LITTLE thing missing

    The Galaxy 8 is a great phone with a more than adequate battery as is. I travel each week for work so having just that little added security is what I was looking for this to do. And it more than does that. My only disappointment is the need to buy an additional headphone adapter to fit through the gap created by the large lower portion of the Mophie pack. And, of course, Best Buy doesn't sell them. So, I had to by a dual jack adapter for $12.99. First world problem, but for $99+, you'd think they'd throw in a $3 adapter in the packaging.

    Mophie is more than an extra battery

    So it's just not an external battery case, what I like most is its synonymous with my phone so nothing to carry or forget but the best feature is the design, when plugged in or also works on a charge pad, it charges the phone first. When I'm about out of power, I push the little button on back of the case and it charges my phone while I use it. I like this feature as I control when it charges so I'm aware how much longer I have and 2works better than any other charge case I have had.

    I wasn't aware of this product until the Best Buy sales rep told me about it in the store. I liked the idea of having an extra battery pack as part of my case. It is heavy but I like the weight it gives my phone. I feel like I have a better grip with it on. I REALLY wish it gave my phone a full charge instead of bringing my phone up by about 60% battery. All in all worth it but confused as to why they wouldn't have it be a full charge or at least closer to a full charge than it is.

    Power when you need it most.

    This is a great product and will give you enough juice to power your cel phone a few times. I didn't give it 5 stars because after about 6 months of continuous use it started losing charging power and after a year of on and off use it will only give you enough to charge your phone once. I know this things will do that but for the price I expected it to last a little longer.

    I don't know how it works, but all I know is my phone stays charged for hours, even after running my blue tooth speaker for three or four hours. My last phone, as it got older just seemed to lose power checking the weather. Now I am confident that whenever I need to use my phone, I have the power to do so. That is important to me. Great product!

    Good case

    The case is nice and thick, plus the fact that it has another battery to serve as a backup battery comes handy when you need to get your phone charged when you can't access to an outlet. The only thing I can see as a detriment is that whenever I try to use Samsung pay, even over at a NFC terminal, it can take a bit longer than usual for the transaction to go through and I would say because of the thickness of the case itself.

    My first Mophie paired with my Galaxy S3. I couldn't use a mophie on my next upgraded phone, but when I had a chance to buy a case for my replaced S8, there was only one compatible juice pack in the store. I grabbed it. Looking forward to protecting my phone from the inevitable drops while getting amazing battery life.

    I bought this because mophie is the best battery case maker. I have always bought them for my iPhone, but recently switched to an S8 and by far I love my s8 =), and thought a battery case isn't really needed I wanted to purchase one to have just incase... Well this one was too bulky and heavy and pulled down my pants when in back Pocket.. Definitely returned product because just wasnt for me..

    Juice Pack is fantastic

    This is my second Mophie juice pack. I had to wait for them to be produced for the Galaxy S8. Now my phone lasts all day without having to be tied to recharging cables. Protects the phone as well. NICE! What i like even better with this one is it uses the same usb3 connector to charge it, OR I can just toss it on my wireless charger and charge both phone and battery pack. Thats nice and handy.

    Recharges and Protects the phone

    It powers, recharges and protects the Smartphone very well. It will power the phone if you turn it on when the phone is at 100%. It will recharge the phone to 100%, even from below a 20% starting point. And it does a great job of protecting the phone from a hard landing if it is dropped.

    Bought this for my husband who needed it for work as he is unable to charge his phone at work and works 12+ hours straight most days. He loves it!! He has had it for 3 months and has not had an issue with it. If his charge gets low on his phone, he just switches on the mophie and he is instantly charging. He loves the design. Sleek and easy to handle.

    Work long days or just can't get to a charger or plug in spot. This saves you all that. Once it gets close to needing a charger you just push a button on the case and your charging your phone. It holds a good amount of charge. Easy to attach to phone. Nice sleek design and soft feel to the hands.

    Your is a great addition to your phone for extra battery. You don't have to worry about wires to an external battery pack or looking for a place to plug in your charger when you have this. It does make your phone thicker but, it's still this enough to fit in your pocket with ease.

    Purchased case for use on long flights, or for long days at work in the field away from power outlets. Case failed to charge after 8 hours, battery status indicators indicate failure to charge. Returned. Previous mophie battery cases worked fine, plan to exchange this for another unit.

    Terrible Product

    This is a terrible product! $100 for a single charge of your S8. You can then recharge it but unless you use it right away, the pack doesn't hold its charge for the next time, meaning you need to charge it again before using it. Bought one and returned it thinking it was defective. Second one was the same. Not worth it!

    When you connect both the case and charger they tend to charge slow due to power going to both devices. I found it easier to separate my phone from the case to get a faster charge and then charge the case by itself. Overall if oyu have the case fully charged it will provide enough juice for the rest of the day.

    Good Battery Case

    This case does add bulk to the S8 but so does any battery case. After installing the case I recommend deleting your old fingerprint profile and scanning your fingerprints again with the case on as the case does limit the position in which your finger can be scanned.
