Pros Great fit and finish, battery life as advertised, case fits extremely well/snug, charging phone while in case is a snap, battery indicator lights are nice feature.
Cons Destroys signal strength...I can't begin to express how bad this is. Makes you wonder how they get away with selling them. Gets a little too hot for my taste. Slippery case...could use some grip.
Summary If they could fix the signal degradation issue, it would be a great device. Mine is getting returned this weekend. Place your bets on when the class-action suit will begin. There is no way they should have brought this product to market when it kills signal so severely. You've been warned.
Pros Protective case...NOt worth 80.00
Cons I already wrote a detailed reveiew on the problems with this pack.
Summary I regret that I forgot to add in the last reveiw that it will KILL your SIGNAL!! Very true.
"Weak Battery"on by Gadgetguy40
Pros Convenient case with battery, will save you in an emergency & provide you with extra juice.
Cons Bulky heavy case, weak charge considering inaccurate claims of 100% etc.
Glossy finish which holds fingerprints worse than the iphone itself.
Summary Well considering this is the third one I have tried now I have yet to obtain a full charge out of this battery. The best I can get out of it is roughly 60-63% tops ! I returned the last 2 thinking ithey were faulty but coming to the conclusion thats as good as it gets w/this device. Not sure where ALL the claims of doubling your battery getting 100% are coming from. Thats not going to happen w/this unit, so in conclusion its a nice in a pinch type backup but NOT worth $79 plus tax....
Pros Gives you a little bit extra boost when you need it.
Cons iphone battery only charged up to 25% when the iphone was dead and morphie juice air was supposedly full. Also, Top case cracked at power button when removing iphone to use with iphone docks... that is why they sell replacements for approx $8.00.
Summary Nice to have in a pinch but definitely not worth $80.00. Battery usage time was not doubled or anywhere near double. I got a 25% charge when iphone 3gs was 2%full and Morphie juice pack air was supposedly full. I guess when morphie CLAIMS that it "doubles battery life", they really meant that it doubles overall battery life before the iphone And the morphie batteries are both dead and you need to have both batteries replaced. Trickery! Another thing to note... if you plan on removing the iphone from the case to use with you docks at home or office, forget it. Very difficult. I cracked the top case at the power button while trying to slide the cover off. Bought $8.00 replacement and cracked it in the same place. So I ended up spending $100.00+ in total for the case and I still have a cracked top. I am stuck with the case but i hope this helps others to be wiser than myself.
Pros Extends battery life somewhat.... but
Cons The JPA substantially degrades the iphone's signal. When I put mine on, it drops from 5 bars of 3G down to 2-3 bars of Edge. The drop in signal forces the phone to use more battery power.
Summary Don't bother. It is really a waste.
