Cannot charge while in the case With Adapter Connected
on February 25, 2013
If you are using an adapter with your iPhone 5, you cannot charge the phone while case is on because there are two plastic thin bars on the bottom of the case on either side of where the charger gets plugged in which prevents the insertion of the charger, so you have to remove the phone from the case to charge which isn't too practical. Case fits very snug so not especially easy to remove. However, if you are plugging the charger directly into the phone without involving an adapter, you're fine. The case is a baby soft pink and very cute. Not bulky at all. Someone had written the white dots are stuck on, but they are not. They are part of the back, not separate stick ons. The case is hard plastic though and I also prefer a soft gel case because I think that would better protect the phone from damage, i.e. from a fall. I'll still use this case periodically because it is cute, but I will be especially careful that I don't drop the phone. NEW INFO: The seller contacted me and refunded me plus offered me a credit for another product - all without my requesting such action, but they did request I remove my review. The review is not this review though. It was a review on the seller and I do not see a way to edit a review made on the seller. Although the seller was very nice in trying to make me happy when I didn't even request a refund and/or a credit, which incidentally I declined because I am using the case, I believe it is important people know before purchasing you need to remove the case if you will be using an adapted to charge your iphone5 (a case which fits very snugly - which is a good thing on the one hand, but not such a good thing on the other hand when one has to keep removing it). If you're not using an adapted to charge, no worries. You're good to go. If you are using an adapted, you'll need to remove the case unless the company follows my very good suggestion and enlarges the area the adapted needs to access to charge the phone.
