    Well designed product!

    This is a great solution to the iPhone 5 low battery problem. The white plastic case is a conversation piece by itself. The battery pack slides on and off the this case effortlessly. I leave the battery pack on while using the phone at my desk and it keeps the battery charged at 100% all day. When I need a slimmer phone that fits in my pocket, I pop out the battery and just take the phone+case with me. The battery stays home getting recharged.

    No noticeable degradation in audio quality from the built in speaker or the mic. The battery pack has the added effect of diverting the sound towards you, rather than downwards. The recess for the headphone jack works fine with the Apple ear pods - can't speak for other models. Right angled headphone jacks would not work with this attachment. They do supply an extender dongle, but it's not the most elegant solution.

    The battery pack has a micro-USB charging port. I use a dual Lightning/Micro-USB charging cable from Monoprice - I can charge the phone and battery pack together, or just the phone or just the battery pack.

    A very useful travel companion

    This brilliant case and battery design means that you can stash the battery in your briefcase and use it only when you need it. The battery snaps on and off very easily and with no fuss. It charges your phone from the red zone to respectable if not complete levels, adding that extra power you need to get you through the day. If you are expecting this case to charge from zero to 100% you might need to look for the higher capacity variant. I absolutely love it and would recommend to anyone who travels.

    Excellent design and concept, Better than Mophie imo

    Works great and I love the form factor, Hoping they offer the ability to purchase just the battery part of the case in different colors separately as well, On the manufactures site you can get different color cases separately (bit over priced), But not for the battery docking part of the hybrid case itself...A must buy, For many years i've used the Mophie juice packs on prety much all models of the iPhone and needless to say I recommend this one first... :) Happy Charging!!

    -The overall design of the case that your phone snaps into could have more of custom design element to it on the sides, but that's more of just my personal preferences..

    1000 Stars for this product!

    Let me say....I will always be a loyal customer to boostcase. I bought my first battery pack when the 4s first came out and it worked wonders. Then I just upgraded to the 5s and bought this in mint and it works fabulous!! Since the 4s, they have made the battery packs even with more punch, so I can't complain in that department. The customer service on the boostcase website is 5 stars just like apples customer service. Props to apple for signing boostcase and selling their products. Two great 5 star companies and 5 star products! Everyone needs to buy this case!

    awesome battery case

    Got my black/white combo, so far I love it since my new iPhone 5s eats out my battery life in less than 3 hours. PRO: slim fit case all time. the charging part actually can be taken off. It gives a full charge. CON: it was hard to understand how to put it on first if you are like me, do not like to read any directions; but once you get the feeling of it, it's super easy. I would recommend it for sure.
