This is one of the best designed products I have ever used. Yes it is a bit heavy, but by no means heavier than expected. To me the weight makes the phone feel much more durable, which it is. The additional battery life is unbelievable for heavy iPhone users. I personally do not like to hunt or always plug my device in to charge. I feel that an internal battery should last more than 3-4 hours of regular use but since it cant I highly recommend the Mophie Juice Pack Air.

I really want to get one of these, but I'm reading user reviews from the sites that sell them including the apple store and there are quite a few complaints about signal strength reduction. Are any of you having issues with your signal strength while using this case?

I really wanted to like this...
Tried this at the Apple Store and am I glad that I did. The weight wasn't an issue for me, and the purple color rocked! The deal breaker for me was docking. In order to dock/charge the pack has to be taken off and this was not an easy task to do! I even had the Apple tech take off for me as I was afraid of breaking.

Mophie Juice Pack Air
I had a difficulty with the micro usb port on mine but Mophie replaced it within a week and the new one is great. It provides great protection for the phone and just the right amount of extra power to get me through the day. I love it and would not trade it for anything. For what it is, the price is right.
Update: July 3, 2009.
I dropped my iPhone on the wood floor in my house and the Juice Pack Air went into 4 pieces. The top piece broke into two pieces and the front and back separated from rest of the unit, exposing the battery and the electronics inside.
I have since returned it to Mophie one more time. We will see how this goes (since I dropped it). I must admit it was far more fragile than I had originally anticipated. As a protective case, it is not very good.
Stay tuned....I will keep you posted.

Well I bit the bullet and bought one of these. I love the extra power on hand whenever I need it. Its been nice not to have to worry about my battery dying before I get home or find a place to plug it in. As for the reception, I notice no difference with or without the case on. This is on a 3gs. I have the same signal strength regardless. My one gripe however, is that when I watched YouTube reviews and read reviews from other sites everyone stated the pack added a full charge and still had some left over. My experience is if I'm at 20% and flip it on, the fully charged pack only gets me back up to about 65%. This is with wi-fi on and normal use but no bluetooth. I wonder if this has to do with the 3GS having a longer battery life (takes more to charge) than the 3g which most of the reviews I read were based on.

OK i just bought on.. its nice kinda bulky makes phone heavy.. my problem is its to smooth i was hoping for like a rubber back or something. i mean this thing is as slick as the back of your iphone. i thinking it will scratch easy enough.

I've had the Mophie battery case since the first day it was released, and I love it. I do wish it had some texture, wasn't so smooth, but that wasn't a deal breaker. Neither was the fact that it could get scratched; I'd rather have the case scratched, than the phone. You don't have to remove it to sync it, just use the included USB cable and plug it in, iTunes will recognize it as usual. If you allow the phone to go down to 20%, switch over to the battery and then make calls immediately, you might have issue. Otherwise, it's great. I have everything running (3G, WiFi, location services and it last me from 6am to midnight. I never worry about usage, and I use everything, a lot.

sorry to hijack this thread, but it's somewhat relevant. has anyone tried the incase power slider as another option? it's size/weight seems more than that of this morphie air. but as mentioned earlier the reviewer of the morphie air complained incessantly about reception issues.
i am considering both for my 3gs. problem is, in-case hasn't gotten back to me. i asked if they had a 3gs version of the power slider (only one on their site is for 3g). but the bulk of incase one concerns me. iPhone is such a beautiful device that i'd hate to bulk it up unnecessarily.

I just had a quick question for those of you who bought one of these Mophie battery cases. I read a bunch of reviews on Amazon for the case, and nearly everyone who purchased one said that the heat from the iPhone would warm the glue that holds the rubber pads to both sides of the case. They said the glue lost its adhesive strength, which meant that the pads came off and sticky glue got everywhere.
Have any of you experienced this problem? The only thing that's keeping me from picking one of these up is the thought of having to scrape adhesive off of my 3G S.

I had mine before my iPhone 3GS came in.
I like the amount of battery life I can get. I like the way it looks, but of course an iPhone out of the case looks better.
I use my Juice Pack Air when I know I am going to need the battery. If I am home relaxing, my iphone isn't in it.

I bought the white Mophie Airjuice pack and returned in 3 days...
Pros: Adds life to battery for all your heavy users
Cons: Heavy, Bulky
Very long time to charge
Micro USB is a bad idea
No frontal protection for OLED screen (no lip)
EXPENSIVE $$$ !!;(

I'd get one of those addon batteries instead of a battery+case if I were you. Those cases make your phone ugly, heavy and fat.
Get something like this;
