The 2 parts case is a nice never seen before idea.
The nice part about this case that the battery comes off and still leaves a case on the phone, the bad part is that with the batte The nice part about this case that the battery comes off and still leaves a case on the phone, the bad part is that with the battery is thicker then other good booster cases but it does what it says and gives you %150 extra charge on the iPhone 5 and about %100 extra battery charge on the 5S.
There is an On/Off button all you have to do is keep pressing the play button till the phone starts charging and if you press it long enough again it stops charging, just like any other booster case. …

I like it
I looked at both the Mophie battery pack and the Boostcase – decided on the Boostcase because it comes with an iPhone 5s case desi I looked at both the Mophie battery pack and the Boostcase – decided on the Boostcase because it comes with an iPhone 5s case designed to connect the phone to the battery (with the Mophie you would have to remove any iPhone case every time you wanted to mount the battery to the phone). I’ve used this Boostcase (2200 mAh battery) two months now for heavy iPhone GPS use and screen-on time, and it still has battery capacity to spare at the end of the day. A light on the back flashes when charging and steady light when charged. The battery pack is coated with a rubbery material that improves grip. My only criticism of the Boostcase is that the iPhone case they supply has a smooth plastic finish – I would prefer a rougher plastic or a rubbery coating to make the phone with just the case (and no battery) more secure in my hand - hence 4 stars. …

better headphone hole
Well for starters the battery is not going to give you what it claims. Having the option to still have a slim case when not using Well for starters the battery is not going to give you what it claims. Having the option to still have a slim case when not using the extra battery is great. But when the extra battery is mounted on, some headphones will need a jack. Yes you can use an extension, but when on the go it makes it very inconvenient. Also don't lose the extension portion or it'll cost you. As for the power cable why not make it an iPhone Cable.....do I really need to keep track of another power cable. …

good case but not for long..
i was in love with the blue color and slim look with first sight of the case. it felt nice on and fit very well. the charging didn i was in love with the blue color and slim look with first sight of the case. it felt nice on and fit very well. the charging didn't hold up to expectation, though. i guess you have to charge the charger for a certain amount of time to keep the battery full longer. i noticed i shared the same experience with another reviewer, after about a month or so of owning the case the charge port for the back connection piece broke.. i don't recall doing anything to it to break it, but it would not charge or light up. i was really disappointed considering the price of the case and how long it lasted. I dont think it could be fixed, but preventing it from breaking will benefit future buyers. Overall product was okay, but not worth $100. If this is happening to others' cases too, i would not reccomend. …

Does it offer protection against mishaps - such as falling?

Each "fall" is different. I accidently missed my shirt pocket once, and the iPhone fell onto concr Each "fall" is different. I accidently missed my shirt pocket once, and the iPhone fell onto concrete at a height of over 5 feet. I fully expected to see a cracked screen when I picked it up. To my surprise, absolutely no damage to my iPhone. There was, however, a small dent in the plastic snap case where it had impacted the concrete. Other than the impact dent, there was no other damage to the snap case, battery pack or iPhone, and both still work perfectly fine. …
