After a long overdue waiting period, PhoneSuit's battery case for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 has finally arrived. It's been nearly two years since we reviewed the company's original PhoneSuit Elite battery case for the iPhone 4, which we believed was outstanding at the time and even awarded it with our Editors' Choice award. As much as iPhone 5 owners anticipated a new PhoneSuit battery case, one never came until now. So what took PhoneSuit so long to redesign a new battery case model for Apple's 4-inch smartphones? Surely it isn't because of a revolutionary new design since it's no different from its predecessor, albeit minus a few small changes. We're of course talking about PhoneSuit's new PhoneSuit Elite 5 battery case for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5. So far we've secretly had it around and have been testing it for a full month, so be sure to catch up on our full review of the PhoneSuit Elite 5 down below!Read More
When it comes to battery-boosting cases for the iPhone we all know they are far from perfect and most of the time, too bulky. The iPhone battery has always been a concern for most people so companies are always looking at new ideas to create that perfect battery packed case. Well PowerSkin is at it again with its new PowerSkin battery case made for the iPhone 5. So what separates this from any other battery case for the iPhone? This sleek bad boy sports a one-piece silicone design instead of the rock solid slider style cases such as Mophie's Juice Pack Helium and Juice Pack Air iPhone 5 battery cases. So is the PowerSkin worth the $79.99 price tag and more importantly is it a reliable source of power for those road trips? Check out the full review next to see if the PowerSkin holds its own against the competition.
Mophie's long-awaited battery case for the iPhone 5 has arrived. The Juice Pack Helium follows a close line made by its iPhone 4/S predecessors that boasts a familiar and favorable design. Mophie is considered to be the name when it comes to picking up an iPhone battery case. Now while Mophie's Juice Pack line of battery cases aren't known to carry the largest internal battery capacities on the market, we think they have a lot to give despite the fact. Juice Packs are generally the most reliable and pleasing to use iPhone battery cases, so naturally we have very high expectations for the new Helium model. Be sure to catch up on our full review down below if your iPhone 5 is in need for an extra serving of Mophie juice!
