If you only are looking to increase your battery by default I agree a smart case is much better. I almost feel like this battery is great for the iPhone mini (ie. perfect fit on a phone w/ a compromised battery) and much less of a value prop for others.
One nice little thing I just discovered about it is it mounts to my wallet so I can carry them together (ie. when driving - need the wallet as it has my id, can use the battery to increase runtime for GPS use).
That said, it's a bit thick for pocket use - I'd do it if I really needed the juice, but for me it's a way to just recharge my phone at home while using or having on the road when I'm out all day and using the GPS heavily (have a 12 mini fwiw). If you don't have specific use cases for it probably best to pass.
I would love to have my music in the cloud but I really want it to be my music, not the mis-matched mess that was Apple Music for me.
