You can turn the extra power on/off manually
On/off switch isn't responsive
Case is thick in places
Can't use "L" shaped headphone plugs
The Bottom Line: The Mophie Juice Pack does what it says it will do but isn't very durable. Purchase with caution.
I'm constantly using my phone so it's rare when I can make it through a day without a dead battery. In an effort to solve for this, I purchased the Mophie Juice Pack Battery. I thought the styling was nice, I really liked the stats on the life of the battery pack itself, and I liked the light-up battery life indicator on the bottom of the case.
When it arrived, I took my phone out of it's generic rubber case and happily slid my phone into the Juice Pack. Since then, I've never been without enough power to get me through the day. Unfortunately, it wasn't long after I started using the Juice Pack that I started to notice something that really annoyed me.
The case is very rigid and the plastic around the earphone hole jack is deep enough to prevent you from using headphones with the "L" shaped plug. The standard apple headphones work ok but I can't plug in my $100 Shure SE 215 headphones (total bummer) without taking the case apart.
I was using the Mophie for about four months as my primary case when I noticed the first crack in the back of the case. I reparied this crack and then case started coming apart from the inside (exposing the battery). A few weeks later, part of the silver plastic chipped at the top of the case and near the USB port on the side. It had only been five months and I was struggling to keep this case in one piece.
Having the extra batter power from the Mophie Juice Pack is pretty awesome; however, the case isn't made to last. I don't drop my phone a lot or consider myself to be overly hard on it so this dissapoints me. Maybe they have improved the design or I just got a bad one.
At the end of the day, the Mophie Juice Pack does what it says it will do but isn't very durable.
