Solid battery case for iPhone 5 with a handy kickstand
on January 13, 2013
I do hope potential buyers will find this review helpful for it seems that there is no much information available about practical use of this particular battery case:
✔1. Rubberized surface, nice to touch and grip.
✔2. Easy to use, simply pull the case apart (gently), slide in iPhone 5 and re-connect the case. Case is sturdy enough, which is a plus for those of us who tend to be somewhat clumsy on occasion :)
✔3. Nice opening for the camera and flash, which is good if you make lots of pictures and videos.
✔4. You can use one cable to recharge the case and the phone.
✔5. Kickstand. A simple yet very useful feature that many other cases do not seem to use. Perfect if you use Facetime, Skype, or watch videos on your iPhone.
✔6. Battery lasts for 10-12 hours easy without recharge.
✔ I wish on/off button was slightly larger.
Not really a con or pro, more of the personal observation - some people say that the case is rather large; I disagree, to a point. I find it solid but I do have large hands so your experience might vary. However, I would not advise carrying your iPhone 5 with ANY battery attached in your back pant's pocket - since a battery does add up to the physical dimensions of the phone, and makes it less monolithic, there's a possibility of sitting on it and breaking up the whole thing. I actually have a nice side-leg pocket on my favorite pair of jeans so, I don't have to worry about it. Just a head's up.
Conclusion: For the price, this is a very solid battery case, with good battery life and a handy kickstand.
