Product Description

The Power Slider for iPhone 3G is the first accessory of its kind to offer protection, expanded battery life and integrated sync and charge capabilities. While most supplemental batteries simply satisfy the need for added power, the Power Slider more than doubles the battery life of iPhone 3G while providing complete device protection and the ability to sync without removing iPhone 3G from the case.

I took the Incase off, and I get 2-3 bars of 3g signal.

I really wanted to keep the case because the battery life was awesome, but if you can't use the phone it is worthless.
Lawrence Colson
There are openings for the power off, volume, vibrate, LED lights in the back, and a USB connection in the bottom.

Purchased the Incase Power Slider from Apple Store in December 2008 while on trip to San Diego from Boston. Flight was delayed by the pre-Christmas snowstorm and started to ponder the purchase of an extended battery for the iPhone 3G while waiting at the airport. Looked over the different products offered, the external battery packs (Kensington), the Mophie Juice, Fastmac iV, and the Incase. Decided to purchase the Incase because I wanted an all-in-one phone without the need to carry an extra external battery pack, something that acts as a case to protect the phone, ability to sync without the need to remove case, and good design. Here are the good, the bad, and the ugly. Amazon has sparse reviews on this product but if you visit the apple store, there are over 200 reviews on the Incase Power Slider.

Construction, Design and Materials - Excellent
The first concern was how the Power Slider would add size and weight to the phone. The iPhone does double in size but is not that much bulkier than if one had purchased a case for the iPhone. I am still able to put the phone in my front pants pocket. Another concern was how the Power Slider would affect handling and for a small person, I am still able to perform most functions on the iPhone with one hand and thumb.

The Power Slider gives a nice grip to the iPhone and the materials are solid. I did a few tests by holding the top of the Power Slider and shaking the case with the iPhone attached to see whether the top and bottom pieces will come loose. With hard enough shaking, the top and bottom will wedge out but not enough that you will worry the iPhone dropping to the ground if you were to hold only the top piece of the case.

I bought this at the local Apple store for my new 3Gs Iphone.

The good:
1. Fits the new 3gs iphone very well. Very snug. I have size 8 hands and I like the added size.
2. The soft texture feels very nice. No smudges. Good quality feel.

The bad:
1. During initial testing, I noticed that I can't even make a call from my home. The signal dropped off completely. I took the Incase off, and I get 2-3 bars of 3g signal. Snapped it back on, and I get ZERO!!

This product is unacceptable. Great looking, great quality build, but makes my phone useless. I'm not sure if my problem is worse with the iPhone 3Gs. If you have the newer 3gs phone, do not buy this.

I bought this item for the battery feature I live in an area where I only get 3 bars of reception and when I received this case I was excited to put my iphone in it but as soon as I walked into the basement my phone said "no service" as soon as I took the cover off I got my three bars back but in a place where I get FULL reception it works great. If looking to buy I recommend at your local retailer because I just checked this stores return policy I have to pay to ship it back and they ALSO charge a restocking fee.

Your reception will drop like a rock. It's Ok in an area where you have great reception but get into a weak area and your will drop from 2 bars to "No Service"

Other than that, the case is great. excellent quality.

I bought this case based on the reviews of battery life and not signal issues. I have to say that I am not experiencing issues with signal degredation at all. This could be because they introduced an updated and revised model of this battery pack. Look at the sku number and it seems the ones ending in 3 are the ones that are having signal degredation issues. I have one ending in 9 and it seems like the signal issues have been fixed (I can't say for sure since I never owned the 3 model ). Battery life is fantastic on it. I can get a whole day of use out of it, plus if you have bigger hands like me, the iPhone tends to be too thin. The thickness actually plays out to be a benefit. Not too big, but also not too small. I picked this thing up for 60 bucks. Considering the incase slider case is 35 dollars by itself, this is a steal (25 bucks extra for an integrated battery). Also unlike the icase slider, the screen protector works well with this because they ended up not bringing the edges of the case all the way in. It just covers the bezel, so there is a huge benefit in itself. I would definitley say give it a try.

I have it for 3 days and once I put it on, I couldn't make calls from my home.

While I'm on the road driving: My calls got disconnected multiple times.
I think it's not intended for iphone 3GS. Maybe it's good for itouch instead b/c it didn't impact the WiFi reception as much as the 3G phone signal!

The slider case itself is a good case and I would defiantly keep it if the reception was not as bad.

Luckily I got it from BestBuy, so it will be in it's way back.

I don't recommended it for iphone 3GS as this is the first time I saw iphone "searching for signal" So I guess I'll have to give this product one good star for greatly blocking the iphone signal

I'm going to try the Tekkeon MP1200 instead.
As I urgently need a backup battery and it seems to have much better reviews
