Very good value, surprising capacity – Portable 4200mAh Rechargeable Power External Battery for iPhone 5 - Black Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
I'm impressed! In my first test, I used this extended battery to power my iPhone 5 from 0% to 100% battery (phone was used minimally during the charging). When the phone reached 100% capacity, this extended battery showed 75% power remaining. Impressive! Summary: - Will charge the iPhone 5 at least 1.5x (from 0% to 100%). -Excellent fit/finish and amazing capacity. - Great value! - USB charging port on the side (can be used to charge other USB devices - aka universal charger as a bonus). - Accepts standard Apple Lightning cable to charge.
Cons:
- Adds some bulk/weight to the phone (but that is expected b/c of the 4200mAh battery). - Recessed audio connector may be troublesome.
Other:
Great value and exceptional quality! Thanks Dx, this what I would like to see in most Dx products!
Bottomline:
If you are tired of running out of power on your iPhone 5, you need this!
