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.
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.
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.
