This pack *does* increase the battery life of the iPhone, and it *is* pretty well thought out in that regard - power meter on the back, ability to turn the battery on and off with a physical switch (the iPhone will use more energy to keep itself at a full charge than if it's just using battery power, so this actually increases life a bit more), and you never have to take the case off to charge or sync.
Unfortunately, in my experience, it KILLED the signal strength on my phone. In my house, I normally get 3-5 bars, depending on where I'm standing. With this case, it would fluctuate wildly between 1 and 5 bars - even when I wasn't moving around - and it had a tendency to be at 1 or 2 bars most of the time. As the case was too tight to get off, for the first week I had the iPhone, I thought my AT&T reception was just that bad.
The separate cable that some other users have mentioned wasn't too bad in my experience, but this case does preclude the use of any docks you may have - could be more of a hassle for others.
The cost is also a bit on the high side, although if signal isn't ever an issue for you and you tend to be out of power a lot, it might be worth considering.
- Slick design, looks like part of the iPhone
- Standby mode is extremely useful - Use battery when needed
- Cutouts are positioned correctly (Camera, volume, ringer silence switch)
- Easy installation
- Can sync while installed (must use micro USB cable)
- Can use the Apple compact wall charger that came with the phone
- Uses micro USB charging cable (not standard Apple 20 pin connector)
- Cannot dock iphone with Juice Pack Air installed
- Adds a little bulk and weight
- Limits use of cases/shields (relatively new someone should make a case soon I hope)
I rarely dock my iPhone so this is not a problem for me. If you are a person who dock's their phone regularly in a docking station/iPhone compatible clock radio to charge at night then this item may not be for you. In order to dock your iPhone the juice pack air must be removed.
There are four LED lights on the back with a status button to let you know the charge level of the battery pack. When activated, the Juice Pack Air actually charges your iPhone and the phone will display and chirp that it is charging. When charging and when you place the battery pack in active mode, the iPhone and battery pack get warm on one side.
I have seen some reduction in signal strength in weaker cell signal areas (especially on the edge network) but works well in areas with stronger cell signal. I live in a major metropolitan where you would expect cell service to be exceptional, however at time my iPhone 3G would display searching or no service (strange).Read more ›
Overall good product if you don't mind a bit more weight and thickness.
Its important to note date as many things reported about this item have either been improved or the user was not treating the Mophie correctly. But don't stop reading as it has a few flaws.
First off are the things people reported as negatives that do not show on my unit.
1) The top plastic piece was weak and could break.
It will not break if you are taking care that it is plastic and one of the goals was to be small, light
and thin. If you insert your finger nail between the 2 pieces it is simple to slip it off.
2) The base would get pressure stuck to the iphone.
Use a clean cloth to wipe it out before you insert the iphone and you will have no trouble sliding it
off again. Also make sure your iphone doesnt have scratchs or iregularities on its case.
3) You need to carry a iphone charging cable as well as the mophie cable.
You do not need the iphone cable if you leave the iphone in the mophie, because the mophie cable charges both
at the same time with iphone in the mophie.
4) You can not sync to itunes with the mophie attached to the iphone.
I found no problem to sync the mophie/iphone using the usb cable provided by mophie
5) The mophie will only charge to 65% when iphone is attached & some said the iphone would not charge to 100% &
in addition the charge would take a very long time.
Not true, just had iphone almost drained and the mophie was down to 2 lights of a possible 4 and both were
completely charged 100% withing 3 hours.
Note: Per Mophie employee, when iphone is in the mophie, and they are charging, 75% of the charge goes to
the iphone and 25% to the mophine.Read more ›
