    Great Case for All Day Users

    Posted
    db95

    Like many people, I spend a decent amount of time on my phone every day. Because of this, I would often need to charge my phone at least twice a day, which becomes tricky during class/work. This case is fantastic for those who struggle with this issue and want a more convenient way to charge their phone throughout the day. When determining the overall rating for this product, I used two main criteria to give this case a perfect five stars: battery life and overall protection. In terms of battery life, the mophie Juice Pack is exceptional. Without the case, my phone was in dire of need of a charge by the middle of the afternoon on average. With this case, my phone is rarely ever below 50% battery at the end of the night, and that is with extremely heavy use on most days. For the average user, this case will make finding an outlet to charge during the day a thing of the past. This extra battery life, however, comes at a price: increased weight/thickness. Having a battery in the case obviously will make your phone noticeably thicker and heavier. However, in my experience, this is something that you stop noticing after a few days of using the case. In terms of protection, this case will serve your phone well. I consider myself to be somewhat of a klutz, and the mophie Juice Pack has been able to handle everything I have accidentally thrown at it. The average user will likely drop their phone significantly less than I do, even though the rubberized finish can be a bit slippery at times. So if protection is something you are concerned about, this case is no slouch. One minor drawback of this case is the fact that it uses the lightning port to charge your phone, making it impossible to use the case and wired headphones at the same time with an iPhone 7/8. If you are considering picking up this case, this issue can easily be overcome by purchasing a pair of wireless headphones, which I would recommend, especially if you are someone who uses headphones on a regular basis. Overall, this phone case has made worrying about charging my phone every few hours obsolete. If you are a heavy user and do not mind the extra weight and the lack of a free lightning port for wired headphones, then this case is one of the best you can buy at the price point.

    Just a Little Shy of Perfect

    Great case that adds moderate protection for the phone. As compared to the Thin Charge case that I had on my previous phone, it is bulkier for sure, but you get used to it after a while. The case feels great in hand and has raised lips to add a little more protection for the front glass. Additionally, sound quality is enhanced for speakerphone calls (or playing music/videos) due to Mophie's speaker design; kudos there. The case is also very easy to put on and remove, and charges with Qi wireless chargers, which is great. So why is this case just a little shy of perfect? First, it is bulky; I can't help but think the thickness of the design could have been slimmed down ever-so-slightly. Second, it has a few design flaws related to charging and charge button. The button on the back that is used to charge the phone and check the case's battery status is easily pressed when putting the phone into a pocket or laying it down face up. This is a huge issue because the case doesn't recognize when the phone is 100% charged, so the battery in the case continues to drain, i.e. you may not have as much juice as you think you have when you really need it. Further, the phone charges slowly when charging from the case, which is annoying. Also, the case charges via Micro USB vs. lightning, so you'll have to either carry two cables or a USB-to-lightning adapter, and you'll need some kind of adapter again to play your lightning earpods. (On the plus side, music and data transfers fine through the case over Micro USB.) All in all, a very good case that could be exceptional with some design tweaks.

    The fairest review I can give is to say it does seem to make the battery last 2 1/2 x longer. Sadly that is still a terribly short time and even with an extended battery I charge my 8 2-3x per day. I close apps, have nearly every feature disabled (defeats the purpose of having a feature rich device though) and no getting around the iOS is shamefully resource intensive. No new features of note in 2 releases but there are about 80 background tasks cross referencing data and registering every other device in its proximity. Case is a bit bulky but not annoying to slide in your pocket, does a good job protecting the device but I don’t get why it uses a conversion plug from the lighting charger to a mini usb? Overall I wish the phone would use a mini usb or anything shared by another appliance and stick with it for more than a year but from a power channeling perspective and basic practicality it is annoying to have to buy two chargers for every place you keep them. It’s not perfect but considering what it’s assisting it’s almost necessary. I dropped the case alone in some water and the dock wouldn’t work and the phone by itself would last 2 hours and is so slick I dropped it 10x and while on the dash flew out the window in a bend. If nothing else I’d rather give another company the money than reward Apple for releasing a phone less capable than a 6s for 800 bucks and needing 200 in earbuds and chargers to do what I could for years without issue. I’ve bought it twice now and would again if I hadn’t to

    This is a great case for people on the go and use their phone a whole lot for business. I have an iPhone 7. Does it make it a little heavier, yes. Does it make it a little thicker, yes. But if you use your phone a whole lot it is worth the extra weight! My phone will get down to 10%, press and hold the button on the back, and within 20 minutes your back up to 100% and you’ve only used half of your backup! I also purchased the wireless charging dock and you just lay it on the dock and it charges the phone first and the case second. It’s perfect in the car on the go. It will play your music through the USB port. I also have the magnetic phone holder in my vehicle. It still works. I DO NOT know about the new iPhone 8’s. I do know that ALL cases for the the 8’s that are out do fit and work on a iPhone 7. Especially Mophie brand and any charging bases. I’ve used Mophie for a long time and their cases are very tough and can take some beating! Great product!!

    My typical day runs out the battery before my day runs out, so not having to plug in is a real plus. I had a Mophie for my iphone 6 that worked great as well. Physically it fit but the mike on the 7 is in a different place and people couldn't hear me. Otherwise I wouldn't have purchased the new one. I got a colored (gold) case so I could see it easier if it was hidijng. I like the look and traction of the black case (rubber backing) better than the gold but my black iphone 7 in the gold case looks nice. I've yet to run out of both iphone AND mophie juice on the same day- the Mophie is able to recharge the iphone battery 2x, so range anxiety isn't there. The only thing I'd like to see that was in a backup battery system I got through Amazon would be an automatic shutoff when the iphone batter is charged back to 100%. The mophie will keep the iphone battery at 100% until the Mophie runs out of juice. I wish it would just shut off once fulliy charged. Other than that, it's great. It does add considerable weight, so if you like the thinness and superlightweight of your 6 or 7 you may be disappointed with how much weight the mophie adds.

    Works great but has some flaws

    I was blown away to learn that I could put a battery pack and a wireless charger on my iPhone 7. I have a 2017 BMW and wanted to be able to use the wireless charging in my car but didn't want to buy the ugly black BMW case that works with it. This case works well in the car for wireless charging. The battery lasts a VERY long time but I try not to use it unless necessary because this case will only give you about 500 charges in its lifetime. That is not very much for $99. Also the case gets torn up looking pretty quickly. It's heavy and not greatly attractive. I feel it will protect my phone though. The case causes some sound issues. For some reason, when I get a text and it alerts, it echoes. It only comes with a very tiny usb cable. I had to purchase a wirless charging mat to charge it with. I bought the one from Mophie. It acts very strange when I go to charge it at night. It turns my phone's screen on and makes a loud noise. Several times, for no reason at all, and it comes out of nowhere. All in all, I like the case and would purchase another one.

    I read all the reviews and compared this to the Apple case. For the most part, I do like this as while it adds some bulk it's not terrible. The good is that the battery does help keep your phone charged upwards of 2x the time. The challenges are that 1) the on/off button does indeed always get hit and I've noticed more often than not if I take the phone out of my pocket that's charging when I didn't leave it that way. They should fix that so that it will only go on when you want it to. Second, the charging cable. Micro USB is OK for Android and maybe even for wireless chargers but it's pretty sucky for an iPhone case. It should be lightning plain and simple so that users can use their normal cables and not have to worry about both micro USB and lightning. Other than that, it works as advertised. I would recommend it but with some obvious caveats.

    Does what it needs to do

    I purchase this because my iPhone 6 battery was not holding a charge my charge my iPhone will start off at 100% then drop down to 95% and the phone is dead within a matter of minutes. Instead of replacing the battery I decided to purchase this battery pack as a temporary solution until the new phone comes out. I could get an all day charge with general use on the phone. The only issue that I came across is the power button on the case can be easily shut off while in my pocket, on the older models it had a slide on off switch which I think it will be better versus a pushbutton power on and off and since the battery pack power gets shut off and my phone internal battery will drop charge quickly and then dies off and would not even know the phone is even off. The other thing I would like to see on this product instead of a micro USB charger to charge the case up it should be a lightning connector so in this case I had to end up buying a new car charger as well. It's definitely a good product minus those two issues that I described in this review.

    iPhone 7 May be a Downgrade

    With few features differing from the 6s, Apple seems to have taken away more good than it added. One notable feature of the iPhone 7 was supposed to be the speed and camera, but when a feature is already nearly perfect, the performance increase will be lost on most users. One concern that can't be overlooked is the lack of a headphone jack. While the lightning cable seems fine as the only plug-in, it eventually becomes extremely frustrating to not be able to plugin a simple pair of headphones or an aux cable to hook your music to your car. At first the converter seems like a fair solution until your phone is dying AND you want to play music and realize you will never be able to do both through the same jack. Ultimately Bluetooth is the future, but convenience and multi-functionality should be at the fore front of design as well, and with no additional battery power in this new model, it doesn't seem like Apple truly had the consumer's best interest in mind. After a month of using the iPhone 7, I wish I would have just stuck with the 6s.

    It works good for me to keep phone charged but I have had to do 2 warranty replacements since I bought this 6 months ago. They either completely fail or the charging turns off and on causing my phone to constantly beep. They also don’t offer much in the way of protecting the screen, just A small edge around the case to prevent it from contacting a surface if face down. Now that being said I am probably not the easiest on cases. They end up in every pocket of my pants and jackets, sometimes being sat on. I just have had other battery cases for past phones give a lot less trouble as comparison. Even though I still have warranty left I am looking for another case due to the constant replacement. FYI-Mophie has been great to deal with for the replacements.

    It took me a little to learn how to use it which I wasn't expecting because it's a pretty straight forward product. I usually charge my phone and the mophie separately at night to make sure they get a full charge. I've learned to let the phone battery get low then turn mophie on to power the phone. If you turn the mophie off once phone is charged and turn it back on if you need it again it goes a lot further. If you leave it in after the phone is charged it'll go through power much faster. It's been a huge convenience. If I use it right it gets me through all day of a lot of phone usage without having to plug in. I wish it would automatically shut off once the phone reached full charge.

    Protects phone adds battery pack + wireless charge

    This case is a great example of good things happening when companies work together. While not officially sanctioned by Apple, this Mophie case fits the iPhone 7 snug as a glove, and at the same time provides double the capacity of battery power as a battery pack, plus allows you to charge wirelessly with any Qi enabled charging pad (such as the Insignia pad we picked up on the same trip). Wireless charging is awesome -- yes, it's still not a *requirement* but once you've been charging wirelessly for a couple days you hate the idea of plugging in. And with the Mophie battery pack you don't have to because the iPhone will go for 2 days without charging, long enough to get home and get back on the charging pad (of course, if you do need to charge on the go then you have to take the case off which can be a pain).

    Best cell phone accessory ever! I always carried an extra portable battery everywhere I went. It just wasn't convenient when I tried to charge and use the phone at the same time. I saw a great YouTube review on this case, so when I bought my iPhone 7S, I purchased this case at the same time. And it was soooo worth every penny of the $75 that I paid for it. I get almost 2.5 times more battery life using the case as a charger. And it's a really good case too. The slim size barely adds any bulk and I have dropped my phone a few times with no damage to my phone; and the case still charges perfectly. If I could change one thing, perhaps add rubber grips on the sides as it's a little slippery. I like the wireless charging option even though I haven't utilized that feature yet. I always recommend this case to everyone with iPhones.

    When I purchased this, the battery indicated it was fully charged, but it would not charge my phone. After some tech support, I was told to send it in for service or to take it back for a refund or replacement. (Apparently, there was a battery "issue.") After I returned the unit and obtained a replacement, things worked just fine. The case seems to protect the phone well and having the extra battery life is a must-have for my son (this is for his phone). If you need extra battery life for your iPhone and do not mind the extra bulk associated with this battery case, this item should work just fine.

    This is a great case which works awesome as a back up battery. I spent the day at Disneyland with my brand new iPhone 8, which was at 5% battery around 2 PM. I flipped the Mophie on and had no problems. It started charging my battery all the way up to hundred percent. I used the heck out of my phone throughout the afternoon and evening and still had about 30% battery left at 10:30 PM after the Fantasmic show. Keep in mind with the iPhone 8 you cannot use the lightning port when you have the case on, i.e. if if you wanted to use the lightning port for headphones, you’re out of luck.

    Mophie for iPhone 8 works well but it has one major problem. Applie iPhone eliminated it audio plug in so you can't use a standard headphone jack. You have to instead plug the jack into an Apple Plug (th esame one you use to charge it, etc) ... Mophie only comes with an android input so when you use it, you can't use a headset or any cord audio plug-in ... this reduces the option only to blue tooth headsets (and every blue tooth headset device requires that it be recharged frequently for continued use) ... it's a hassle ... Apple doesn't make a battery backup for the iPhone 8 yet so Mophie is the only choice, limiting but the only choice for now

    I love this case, I’ve had this case for over two years now, but I wore it on my phone for over a year. It definitely does the job the only reason I have taken it off was because it got scratched up on the back so it doesn’t look as good as it did brand new, but that is just wear and tear, other than that, the only thing is that it is quite bulky, and can be a little heavy than average case. Overall I was happy with it because it charges your phone, and I’ve had this thing for a while and it still works and is very convenient!

    As an additional battery pack it's phenominal, fully chargers my iphone 7 from less than 20% up to full power and still has a little juice left in it, which is way more than I actually needed out of it so I'm stoked. As a case it has it's issues. While it fits snuggly enough, the top section of the case seems as if it's a fraction of a measurement too short and won't stay snapped it. I've yet to have it come off, but it's a minor annoyance. Also, to any that get this, do NOT try to sync your iphone while it's in the mophi case, it will not work and it will cause you errors, the iphone wasn't designed to have a third party liaison between it and your computer.

    The case is too thick. Design is lacking. While the case charged my iPhone, the case and my iPhone became extremely hot to the touch. After all of these issues, the biggest I believe is the loss of the lightning port. You can't use your lightning headphones, charger, or any car accessories. Consider these problems before purchasing. I ultimately returned the case and purchased the Apple Smart Battery case in black. Most would think the back of this case is bulky, however the design of it is great! You still retain the slim design of the iPhone as well as the phone staying cool to the touch and most importantly you keep the lightning port!

    This is my my 5th mophie case for my various iPhones (4S, 6S & 7). They are always reliable. Love the blue color. During the day it looks blue. At night, it appears to almost look black. Great idea on leaving a cutout for the mute & on volume toggle switch. On the 6S, you had to align the toogle switch perfectly to slide the top portion of the case on the phone. I think i prefer the on/off toggle power charge button on the 6S Case vs the 7 Case new push button. On 2 occassions, i accidentally hit the button on the back of the phone case when it was in my pocket & the mophie started to charge my iphone
