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:

Pros:

✔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.

Cons:

✔ 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.

Recommended.

As a regular Amazon shopper, I don't normally write too many reviews but I had to write something about the i-Blason PowerSlider battery Case. I like this case very much and just ordered my second one. There is relatively very little information on the web about the unit so I figured I'd help out buyers like me who like to research the item before they commit to buying. So here goes:

The Good:
1. The PowerSlider case is reasonablly priced. The Lenmar battery case range anywhere from $90~$110 (on pre-order) which is way out of my price range for this type of product. Mophie is still nowhere to be seen.
2. The i-Blason case looks good. I've got a black iPhone 5 (AT&T) and this case matches the color perfectly. Also, the PowerSlider has a nice, rubberized finish which compliments the iPhone and makes it easy to hold.
3. It works. With 2,200 mAh capacity, I can go an entire day (13 hours) without recharging my phone, and that includes web surfing, sending/reading emails, and of course playing games even using AT&T 4G LTE.
4. I like the kick stand. It is so convenient to use and one of main reasons I bought this case. But, I do wish they made this stand a bit more sturdy.
5. Buttons, openings and controls all works great. I Had no issues.

The Bad:
1. The PowerSlider does add some considerable bulk to your slim iPhone. Both in thickness and in height.
2. The case adds extra weight (mainly from the battery) so throwing it in your pockets may be uncomfortable. But not too bad with less than 3 ounces of mass.

Bottomline:
It's a quality battery case that works well, compatible and reliable, and is relatively inexpensive. There are negatives, but they're all superficial. If you're a person who is always on the go and you don't always have time to charge your phone then this case is for you. Highly recommended

I was excited to finally see a decent looking option for a battery case for the iPhone 5, and immediately ordered the i-Blason case. The fit of the case is good, covering all of the exposed areas of the phone with the exception of the volume buttons. One major set back for the design of the case is the area surrounding the headphone jack. I use an Etymotic headset for phone use and music. Unfortunately with the case on the phone, the only headphones that will fit is the factory Apple headphones. I have had the case on the phone less than 24 hours, and there are already 3 noticeable areas where the matte finish is coming off of the case. Very disappointing considering the cost of this case. I've yet to really put the battery to the test yet, but all in all seems overpriced for the quality of the product.

Very slow to charge, does not charge the iPhone internal battery and the case battery at the same time when phone attached to charger.

Several times it has become very hot and caused the phone to freeze up.

UPDATE 1: Company definitely is on top of customer support! Received an immediate contact from them to provide a replacement for possibly defective unit!

Wow I can't believe that this charger only works for 20 seconds! Not sure if I got a lemon. Checked manufactures website and no tech support to get help. Not satisfied, very disappointed!

Yeah. You hear me right. This literally it is a Mophie Juice Pack a like for iPhone 5 with a 2,200 mAh capacity battery inside.

Ok so first off I ordered this case on Friday and it said it wouldn't be in stock until Monday and wouldn't be delivered until Thursday but the case arrived the very next day on Saturday! I was very pleased and impressed.

Works great, Looks great, super fast shipping. Very pleased!

only 2 negative things 1) charging port for the case is a USB one. I wished I had ordered the one with lightning connector 2) headphone jack cutout is a bit too small. I got a aftermarket splitter from Amazon. Problem was solved eventually

Overall, 5 Stars

So let me start by telling you that I've never owned a battery case for my iPhone 4, but here we go. With it being two moths of owning my iPhone 5 I'll say that it has a severely reduced battery life then it's older brother. So when Christmas came around and Amazon gift cards came in droves this was one of my first purchases I made.
When I went looking for battery cases and came across this one it seemed to me that it had the best protection compared to others that were on Amazon. With the speaker set, kickstand, LED set up, and great price point it looked like a good buy. Boy was I so wrong. The kickstand is its only positive.
Let's hit the negative, the earphone jack on the bottom is extremely narrow so you can only use the apple headset, the power button doesn't work from time to time & feels like this button is gonna break, and the battery on this case is just awful. The battery takes hours (5 hours) to fully charge, even at full charge the phone won't take power, even if your phone & case are fully charged as you leave the house the case won't hold it's own charge. When I charge this case and then go to work my LED's are at full charge, 4 hours into work & my case is dead. I come home plug it into my lighting cable & then reads at full charge.
So I'm very disappointed in this case. Unfortunate will be keeping the case at this time the kickstand is actually still the only positive to this item. I will have to wait until I find something much better.
For anyone who is looking to buy this case, just keep looking around and read all customer reviews before you buy. Please do not waste your money on this case.

It tries to live up to the mophie juice pack but doesn't. Wouldn't hold a charge and I was overall unimpressed. It may be the first charging case out there for the iPhone 5, but I'd wait until there is something worth buying.

Does not hold a full charge and only works sporadically. There have to be better options than this product. Very dissatisfied.
