Since I travel a lot and rely on my iPhone for email, text messaging, GPS, and entertainment, I really needed better battery life.

It does add a little size to the phone, but it actually makes the phone easier to handle for me (I have large hands).

All things considered, this is a good option if you need to extend the battery life of your iPhone.

I tried all the techniques for extending battery life - data push, turn off 3G, etc. None were able to satisfy me, and quite frankly, I bought the phone to use the features that Apple is saying I should turn off. Doesn't make any sense to me.

Some background: I use my iPhone constantly throughout the day. It's my primary means of email use, as I spend most of my day in the field. I listen to music in the car, and spend far more time on the net than I thought I would.

The Tekkeon case is well made of quality materials. It holds the phone very snug, and is very comfortable to hold / use. It does add a little size to the phone, but it actually makes the phone easier to handle for me (I have large hands). I like the snap closure to secure the phone, but quite frankly, its not a requirement - the case is very snug.

The downside of the case / battery is you need to take it out to charge the phone fully. You can charge the iPhone to about 96%, but that's it - you can not get a 100% charge with the iPhone in the case, charging the phone and battery from the same cable. In addition, the Tekkeon will not revive a dead iPhone very well. In my experience, the iPhone will charge to about 45% from a low of 8%, but it will not get to 100% from the Tekkeon battery. If you're buying this to throw in your bag to keep handy when your iPhone needs a jump start, you may not be happy - check into the Mophie JuicePak.

I also happen to have a Mophie JuicePak for iPhone 3g. Don't ask.

The Mophie product holds the phone very well, but there is no strap or other closure. It just pinches the phone tightly, and it does loosen over time.

I have not written very many reviews but this product is exceptional. I am a brand new iPhone user and was struck by how quickly the battery seemed to drain on the unit. Since I travel a lot and rely on my iPhone for email, text messaging, GPS, and entertainment, I really needed better battery life. I looked at several batteries that extended the length of the iPhone but didn't like the awkwardness. The Tekkeon battery and iPhone sleeve seemed a good integration of style and substance so I gave it a try.

I have been using the MP 1200 for a couple of weeks now and it has exceeded my expectations:
1) It is stylish and then some: The leather backing is attractive and the brushed leather with white stitching on the front of the case gives it a classy and classic look. The snap on top of the case easily stretches over the iPhone to hold it in place.
2) The MP1200 is surprisingly lightweight. It does add some bulk to the iPhone but I personally found that I prefer holding my iPhone with the MP1200 sleeve in place. It feels more stable in my grip with the case on. The bare iPhone always feels like it is going to slip right out of my hands!
3) All iPhone tools are completely available to you at all times. The volume buttons, vibrate switch, home screen button, power button, and camera lens are complete unencumbered by the MP1200 case. Nothing at all awkward about using the various functions of your iPhone while it is docked inside the Tekkeon case.

And, as to the all important issue of battery life, the MP1200 has at least doubled the amount of time I can use my iPhone in one sitting. Even better, the MP1200 truly extends the availability my iPhone: On a typical day I charge the Tekkeon case and iPhone together at night using the provided USB cable.

We all know the iphone battery isn't great, so if you're a iPhone addict like me, then this is a must have. I'm constantly on my iPhone- surfing the web, playing games, watching youtube - and I usually barely get 8 hours before i have to charge my phone. This battery gives you another 8-10hrs, before you have to use the iPhone battery.

I mainly got this because i was going to drive from LA to Salt Lake City for a snowboard trip. The drive was over 10 hours, and i was using my iphone the whole time (my brother drove) between listening to music and surfing the web. The MP1200 lasted almost the whole time, and only died about 30min away from our lodge! It really made the drive seem short.

Now I use the case everyday at work to listen to Pandora. Normally i can only use Pandora for a few hrs before i need to charge the iphone. With the MP1200 i can listen to Pandora all day, and just take the case off and have a fully charged iPhone when I hit happy hour after work!

The only thing keeping this from being a 5 star product is the size. I mean its not too big (it basically makes the iPhone a little longer/bigger than my 5th gen video iPod), and it can still fit in your pocket. If it was just a little smaller, then it would be perfect. I highly recommend this for every iPhone user!

It looks, feels and works as advertised.

Pros: Sturdy and well made. It holds the phone securely and provides more then adequate protection. Ive had this case three weeks now and have used it everyday. Normally by bed time I have drained the phone almost completely. Now, with the Battery case I have usually 85 to 96% left at bedtime. A fully charged phone and case will last me all weekend!

Contrary to some of the other review comments, I found I can fully charge the Iphone, (in the case) to 100% from empty. Also, I have inserted my phone at 15% battery left into the fully charged case and it eventually charged the phone to 96%. Also, syncing the Iphone in the case works great. The person that said their case charge empties quickly even when the phone is off must have a gotten a lemon, because mine keeps it's charge all day with the phone off or in standby.

CONS: The bottom of the case has no openings for the microphone inputs. So when using the Iphone in speaker mode there is considerable feedback and echoing, to the point where conversation is virtually impossible. So, I don't use speakerphone mode while in the case I just plug in my headphones. I can live with this, considering the overall usefulness of this battery case (I may eventually drill holes to alleviate the problem).

Update: 10/10/2010, Still using this case with a good daily charge after a year and a half of use. Still happy with this purchase.
