    Mophie Juice Pack

    Mophe Juice Pack. I have thoroughly researched the external battery packs, and this is a good compromise taking into consideration such factors as weight, case for phone (as opposed to an appendage), and mAh provided. I like the additional weight and texture--I have yet to drop the phone while in the Mophie, whereas I dropped my previous iPhone (without a case) constantly.

    I've got a great case which won't allow for a morpe....what other good options are out there? I'm considering:
    Amazon.com: Apc Universal Battery, 10WH: Electronics

    Amazon.com: External Battery for Iphone, Iphone 3g, Iphone 3gs, T-mobile G1, Ipod, Sidekick, Blackberry, Nokia, 5400 Mah: Electronics
    there're a few others but they need to be high capacity due to the 3GS torment on battery life.

    Works very similar to the Kesington mini I'm using now. I'm going for a larger capacity at this point...4000mAh at least. I don't even want to ration power like I do even with the Kesington mini.

    i bought an iPWR on TheCellGuru for around $50. it's a 1800 mAh power supply.
    it has a plug-in charger that is retractable (great for tucking neatly away). first attempt to fully charge the battery took about 4-6 hours i think.

    it also has an On/Off switch that claims to allow it to retain it's charge for much longer period of time. once plugged into an iPhone, it will charge the battery AND the iPhone simultaneously. the battery by itself will fully charge your iPhone in about 2.5 hours.

    i've been impressed with it thus far. and the big bonus is, it's small and can be dropped in your pocket and brought along for most any trip. i highly recommend it if you just want something to bail you out on those heavy use days.

    I picked up the incase power slider. It's bulky, but I like it.

    If you guys use these battery packs, do they make your iPhone too bulky? I've seen a couple online and they really look like they would make my website very very bulky!

    I have Kensington Mini. Gives me a 75% charge pretty quickly, which is enough to get me where I'm going. Easy to pocket, pretty inexpensive. A little bulky when it's on, but I just charge and go.

    I have a Kesington mini currently and it works well but not enough juice for long flights. I've got an 8hr transatlantic flight in a week and need more juice. I'm ordering this Tekkeon Great size,4000mAh, and almost the same price I paid for the Kessington.

    Do any of these batteries fit into the dock connector of the iPhone even if you have a case, like a silicone case?

    Most of the battery chargers should fit, but it also depends on the case that you have. I have used my iPwr with a Speck Candy Shell, SwitchEasy Rebel Serpent, Griffin Reveal, and a case very similar to the iFrogz Luxe.

    The less the case restricts the bottom of the device, the more success you will have with plug-in battery extenders.

    I'm going to have to disagree. if it put out more maH it would be great, the size is perfect but the JOLT (excuse the pun) is not enough.
    I returned it to the Apple Store.

    I have never had to recharge a fully depleted 3GS with it but most 1800mah batteries usually good for 1 1/2 charges.

    The iPwr also has an on/off switch so it retains a charge for quite a bit of time if you turn it off when not using it.

    I was going to buy a Mophie Air Case until I heard of signal strength issues. The downside of external batteries is remembering to recharge them.

    Not to mention remembering to take one with you. I have three including one that can use AAs if necessary.

    I have been carrying an extra battery since long before the iPhone. Can you say, "Palm?" I think that there is a natural law that says, "Use expands to consume all the power in any battery."
