Pros:
Brain-dead simple to use. Just charge it with your iPhone/iPod connecter cable, and then plug it into your iPhone.
Works fine with iPhone 3GS. A full charge brought my iPhone 3GS from 2% to 85% capacity.
The unit I received does not lock onto the iPhone either, but it won't just fall out when you hold the iPhone in the air. It fits snugly.
Cons:
As mentioned, it couldn't fully charge my iPhone 3GS- the best I could get was an 85% charge, but maybe it is just my unit.
Also, the front of the unit looks like a sticker that can peel off easily. It isnt a quality build, but who cares- you are looking for a cheap rechargeable battery- this is it.
Other:
Bottomline:
Great for topping off the battery, but
i don't think you can bring back an iPhone with a 0% charge back to a 100% charge. The best I got was just 85%, but that is good enough for this price, in my opinion.
