Very useful – Portable 4200mAh Rechargeable Power External Battery for iPhone 5 - Black Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
The battery case looks nice. You plug it into the iPhone's regular cable and just slide the phone into it (this is nice because there are other batteries with clumsier setups). It gives the phone 3-4 extra days of juice, which is very useful when using the GPS for long voyages or when watching movies on a plane. The case is designed for easy access to the phone's normal jacks and buttons.
Cons:
The kickstand is very flimsy - I didn't try to use it because it looks like it could break any second. The battery level readout is not so reliable - it dropped for me from 50% to 0% in less than 2 hours.
Other:
.
Bottomline:
Very handy item - useful to have.
