I had the corresponding case for my iPhone 4 and really liked it. Might get this for my iPhone 5.

My gripes with the iPhone 4 version: it used micro-usb instead of a regular dock passthrough connection. That means that I couldn't use any other accessories while using this. So I had to remove the case to use any of my other accessories. Which didn't work well if I had depleted my iPhone's battery and was using the Mophie case to charge it.

Beat me to it!

My other gripe is how much thickness it added. It made using the volume buttons difficult to use with my fat fingers. I wouldn't mind the added thickness if they had overlays for the various buttons.

Rather than letting people switch the iPhone batteries, Apple forces some of its customers to use this. Very frustrating for some, but I think it's worth it when you consider how many people don't need this.

I had to read your comment a couple of times.

the first time through, I read this as "I have replaced my Apple Genius with a burrito."

:)

But I have already replaced it with Genius. No bueno.

I love my Mophie for the 4S. It let's me not worry about battery life at all during long days of travel. It's fantastic. And if I want to feel stylish, I can just remove the case and go naked for awhile. I haven' t had any trouble with the micro-usb port either and I've had it over a year. The only annoying this is the LEDs that blink while charging at night.


Apparently the LED's dont blink anymore unless you press the button now which is a welcome improvement
