The PhoneSuit Elite Battery Case for iPhone 5/5s is an excellent battery case that is well designed and powerful.

Pros:
-2100mAh battery inside to charge your iPhone with (I have gotten 120% extra battery life with this battery case which is excellent)
-Charges an iPhone at 1 amp/5 volts and can charge the battery case using the provided micro USB cable or your own at 1.

I bought this directly from PhoneSuit and received it over 2 working days in Singapore. On first impressions the case is sleek and stylish, everything that I fell for in their marketing advertisement.

I had no issues with fitting the case onto my iPhone 5s, and there was none of those signal-dropping, wifi-plopping issues that concerned some pre-emptive buyers; at least none that i could notice. I have been using it for about 2 weeks now and it has not failed to sync with itunes nor have any issues while charging directly from the wall socket. The capacity, from what I observe, is accurately approximated to be about 120%; which i like to use in 40% bursts.

As promised, the case charges the iPhone from 3% to 100% in under 2 hours (97 minutes!); but with the downside of heating up noticeably. It doesn't get hot enough to start the iPhone temperature warning, but I recall a particularly tense presentation during which my pocket was getting increasingly tropical.

Prior to purchasing the case I applied a 0.3mm glass protector to the front of my iPhone, which was a retrospective stroke of genius because the front screen now flushes with the raised sides of the front of the case! :P

In summary, PROS
- Whatever is on the marketing website is pretty much accurate
- L-shaped audio jacks accepted (Thank God.)
- Idiot-proof assembly
- Adds considerable chunkiness and weight to the phone (I have big hands so yay)

CONS
- Unable to use on commercial docks/speakers
- Heats up during charging (but then again, i guess any charger would)
- Essentially triples the weight and bulk so that may not be great for skinny jeans

All in all I love it!

I have tested several battery cases and I like this one a lot. It is nicely designed and I like 5 blue LED battery status indicators on the back of the phone. It is easy to install your iPhone 5S into the case. You simply remove the top piece of the case by sliding it open and insert your iPhone into the case until it plugs into the lightning connector. Then reinstall the top of the case by sliding it onto the top of the phone. The case comes with a 27 inch USB to Micro USB charging cable and before I installed my phone I charged the battery case fully. You can use any USB car or AC wall charging adapter or even your computer's USB port. For faster charging you should use a 2 Amp 5VDC USB output charging port.

I used the same cable that came with the battery case and I plugged it into my computer's USB port and not only did the phone start charging my phone synced with iTunes automatically. I had absolutely no issues with any error messages and the case worked fine in charging and syncing my iPhone 5S. The product box states that the case and lightning connector are MFI (Made For iPhone) certified.

The case is nicely coated with a rubberized paint that provides a nice gripping surface to allow you to more safely carry your phone. The front edge of the case very slightly extends beyond the front of the phone to provide a surface that will rub on the table if the phone is lying face down to protect the phone's screen. The lip is very thin so in my case I am going to install a hardened glass protective screen onto my phone and it will extend beyond the front of the case. The hardened glass is virtually un-scratchable so who cares.

The battery is rated at 2100 mAh of capacity but in my testing I was able to get 1497.
