    Default Mophie Juice Pack Won't Charge My Iphone 4S too

    Hello!

    I just got a Mophie Juice Pack Plus for my iPhone 4S. Did I understand it correctly in that if I have my iPhone IN the case and plug it up to the computer to charge, that it will charge both the iPhone and my case at the same time? I thought that's what it said, but my phone is in the case and the case is charging, but my phone isn't doing anything. I know that once the case is fully charged that I can switch on the power and it will charge my phone, but I thought the purpose was to start out with two fully charged batteries. Am I wrong? Or does it charge the case first, THEN charge the phone? Which again would add to total charge time, but that's ok, I just wanted to check. Thanks for any help!

    I think you have to have the case powered on so you can charged both case and phone while it's plugged in.

    Thanks so much for the reply!

    I've tried it both ways - with the pack powered on to send power to the phone, and with it turned off thinking that perhaps that was the correct way to do it. Neither way sent power to my phone. Then I thought that since I let my juice pack battery run down pretty low in order to optimize it, that maybe it needed to charge up a little in order to start sending power to the phone. I left it plugged up that way for an hour, and my phone never started charging, although the pack kept charging just fine. So I'm just not sure if I'm doing something wrong, or if I completely misunderstood what they said it would do!

    Have you tried charging from an outlet and not a computer?

    Outlet will be faster. If it completely charges mophie first, press the bottom button. If all lights light up, the mophie is completely charged and the outlet is charging the phone. I keep the mophie on all ways, and charge them both at the same time every night with an outlet.

    The battery pack isn't switched off in the juice pack is it ? There is that toggle remember to turn it on and off from the device

    My warranty ran out in July 2012. The Mophie stooped charging about 3 months later . Now all I have is an expensive case. Not impressed with the product.
