    Can't beat the price

    Price got my attention. Compared to the more expensive (Mophie) charging cases, the price got my attention. The case charge definitely doesn't last as long as the box says but it does the job I need it for. Does seem to take a while to charge (have nothing to compare it to though) but I usually charge the case overnight and it's fine. Awesome case. Also very durable (tested that the first day.......) and couldn't find anything (scratches, dents, breaks etc) on the case or phone....LOVE IT Pros: Durable, Cost is highly affordable, color options, charges phone quick Cons: turns a light phone into a bulky one, battery seems to deplete quickly when charging my phone

    I purchased this item for a vacation I was taking where I would be outside and away from a power source I could recharge my phone. The item works very well and the price is very good. There were many similar items that were quite a bit more expensive. This item did exactly what it was supposed to. It kept my phone charged for twice as long as the phone's battery alone. I would recommend this. It adds a some extra bulk to the phone, but you can still carry it in your pocket.

    Best Battery Case Value

    Great battery case - it works perfectly and compared to the other options on the market, by far the best value. Provides an extra full charge for my iPhone 5 which is absolutely necessary now with ios7. Love the one piece design too - so simple to dislodge the phone when needed rather than dealing with two pieces. Buy this if you own an Iphone 5 or Iphone 5s. You will not regret it.

    I bought this for my Iphone 5S, I eyed it up first because of the color, but the function of it is great, I don't have to worry about my phone battery dying and trying to find someplace to plug it in. It has an on-off switch the battery so you don't turn it on till it's needed. It does make the phone bigger and heavier, but to me it's more solid in my hand now and I don't have to worry about it slipping out of my hand.

    I bought this item as a Delal of the Day and I am so glad I did. I inserted my phone in the Platinum Exterior Battery Case the day I received it and now it is the only case I use for my iPhone 5s. It is so convenient to just flip a switch and immediately charge my smart phone without any use interruption! I highly recommend this product.

    Love that the case is not bulky and easy to slide my phone in and out the case with ease. It has a nice design and fits easily in my pants pocket and purse. The price really caught my attention in comparison to the more expensive cases. The durability of the case is good as I have dropped it twice with no scratches.

    I feel like this case lacks protection on the sides just because of the way it fits the phone. It does function as an adequate secondary power supply. I got it on clearance and it is well worth that function for long road trips in vacations. There are better cases out there

    This is a great item to have when you might not have access to a charger. The only problem is that sometimes I get the dreaded "not compatable" message so sometimes I have to slide the bottom of the case down so it doesn't plug into the phone while I charge the case.

    It's a great investment if your phone always dies like mine. Keeps charge long and really easy to operate. Only down side is it is really bulky and it's for a iPhone but when the case need charge it uses a android charger. But over all I love this charger.

    The power on/off switch (for the case) sometimes slides when in pocket or bag. Headphone input is too deep at the bottom. Some cables don't fit and you have to take the case off to access. Otherwise case works nicely with regard to charging and protection.

    The best extra charger to have attach to your phone. I always use my I phone all day and when I get low it is very convenient just press the button and there it is your instant charge without going to an outlet. It is highly recommended with I phone user.

    Not a bad battery case for the price

    We found this case on sale for just $19.99 - for that price it's been a good value for the money. It's gone dead on me faster than they said it should have - but it's saved me plenty of times when my phone would have otherwise been dead!

    Comparable to low end Mophie in cost with more capacity than top end Mophie. In addition, the case exterior is superior - smooth comfortable feel without being slippery. Easy to grip for someone with hand problems such as arthritis.

    This little backup battery has been great. I do not have to worry about always looking for a charge throughout the day. When the battery starts showing low, I flip the switch and bamb!!! I am back in action.

    I had to buy 2 for my job. One was great, the other faulty. If it's sold in normal condition I have zero complaints. It's a great product that helps maximize time especially if for work

    It keeps my aging battery charged all day. Easy to attach and remove from phone. One should buy the Apple two prong plug so you can charge both at the same time.

    The external battery case for the iPhone 5/5s was a good but for the money. The phone slips easily into the case. The case however is a bit thicker that others I have had.
