That one lasted for just about 2 months.
Beth G
I mean, how hard is it really to make a case with a battery in it that charges the phone.
S. Bryce
That is because it is charging the charger instead of the phone.

Over the past year or two, I've owned the Incipio Offgrid, Mophie Juice Pack Air, and Tekkeon My Power. They all 3 work as advertised. I mean, how hard is it really to make a case with a battery in it that charges the phone. The hard part is making one that looks halfway decent. The Incipio Offgrid is hands down a much better looking product than the other two. It barely even looks like a battery case other than the little extra bit that plugs into the dock connector.

The Offgrid will charge up my fully drained iPhone 4s to about 65%. While there are cases out there (juice Pack Air Plus comes to mind) that claim to offer a full charge, they are huge. The Offgrid has 4 very subtle blue LEDs that indicate charge capacity. You don't even know they are there because they only light up for a few seconds if you press the power button. The case is smooth glossy black so you don't have to worry about the rubbery coating flaking off like so many other cases.

EDIT (11-18-11):

One thing I have since learned since originally writing this review is that due to the way the case covers the microphone, it causes an echo that can only be heard by the person you are talking to. I haven't seen this problem with any of the other battery cases I've owned. I email, text, and use safari way more than I talk on the phone, so it's not a huge deal for me. If you talk on the phone a lot, this case may not be for you. Have to knock it down a couple of stars since it renders the voice portion of the phone useless. Fix that, and I'd give it 5 stars in a heartbeat.

As far as the question about the flash, I have no idea because I try not to use the flash because it makes pictures look bad. Due to the thickness of the case around one side of the camera opening, I wouldn't be surprised if blocked the flash a little.

Color Name: Red Verified Purchase
The first case I received in the mail from Amazon didn't charge the phone, I had to contact Incipio directly for a replacement, which they gladly sent free of charge. The battery life provided, lack of bulk and great feel in the hand are WONDERFUL...biggest draw back, the opening to the earphone jack is not big enough. It causes a lack of contact between the regular 3.5mm pin earphone plug on any standard set of earphones, requiring that you remove the top of the case in order to complete the connection and have your earphones work properly. This eventually causes the top of the case to no longer sit properly with the bottom portion of the slider case. It is among the cheaper of the battery cases that I've found, this may be a reason why. It's a great look at feel, but my next battery case is going to be a different brand if Incipio doesn't make that earphone opening a lot bigger.

Color Name: Red Verified Purchase
The red color I order receives a LOT of a attention. People tell me if I am holding it in the hallway their eyes track immediately to it. If you have incipio's red feather case, this isn't the same color of red. :) I wasn't expecting it to be exactly the same, but I was hoping it would be close. It is more of a ferrari red, as someone put it, and it is glossy to boot! ;)

The case feels like it will be just as slick as the iPhone 4S itself, but if I hold my hand open with the case and phone in it... and rotate to a 45 degree there is enough friction that it barely creeps out of my hand.

While the battery does add some bulk, they have take the apple approach and rounded out the edges enough that if you hold this case in your hand, it feels slimmer than an iPhone with a bumper case. I personally prefer the feel of this case (and the small additional weight) to that of the phone with a bumper on it. The initial reaction I get when other see it, and find out that it has a battery it in, is "There's a battery in there? It is really thin if it has a battery, how long does it extend your use time?"

I have only had the case a few days at this point, but with my usage I am finding that if I press and hold the button to start charging the phone back up at 40% that I will get to 100%. I haven't stopped using the phone, yet, however, while it was charging. Generally I am still browsing the web or talking on the phone for about 15 - 20% of the time it is charging the phone. I also haven't paid too much attention to how long it takes to get the phone that far... but my best guess would be it is about 1 hour.

Color Name: Stealth Matte Black Verified Purchase
The case is exactly as described. Increased battery life by a minimum of 50% but more like 75% with average use. Looks very nice and stealthy.
One minor complaint is the top piece seems like an afterthought and doesn't fit snugly to the bottom section. I actually just leave it off and it works fine.
One major complaint is that after only a couple of weeks of very light use, the USB port has become loose and will only charge if I hold the cable at a certain angle. I have an email into the company about a resolution and will update if/when they contact me.
5-stars minus these two issues.
