a few flaws...but a good price for what you get...
a couple of questions:
1. when charging, most charging/ cases will charge the iphone first then the actual charger....mine is charing the case first not the iphone
2. How can you tell the total charge left on the charger/case without switching on the charger ? In order to view the charger strength, you have to touch the button to charge it....so you have to turn on the charge to see the amt of charge left on the battery, then turn it off if you are not wanting to charge iphone at that point....
3. The battery or charger will charge again up to about 80% which is surprising since it shows to be a 3500mAh .....it should easily with that charge power be charge iphone at least 200% or two times.
April: I am being told by AlumiGogo that the phone and charger must be charged separately...I don't recall that in the charger/case description before I ordered but will recheck that. Inconsistent info...as I charged case/battery last nite and it didn't charge the iphone, so I disconnected from case, and reconnected and it did bypass the case and start to charge the actual Iphone.....not sure if they understand their own product...?? Jury is still out on this product....stay tuned if interested....

Better than my first charging case which was twice the price... I was hesitant because of the two piece slide in design... but it holds solid and I've had no issues... I wish it had a higher capacity... but it easily lets my phone last for a full day... and it protects... I've dropped it twice with no issues. It serves its purpose... it looks pretty good... I give it four stars.

Not the best but ok in a pinch
This case is pretty good. When the case itself was fully charged and I wasn’t using my phone while I was trying to charge it with the case, it was able to charge my phone from 5-50% over about 2 hours. Also, the lights at the bottom are almost blinding whenever it’s even a little dark. It also took about 2 hours to charge the case, but the case battery does not last long while you’re doing something on your phone. Do not try to charge the case and your phone at the same time- it doesn’t work, and both the battery on your phone and your case will remain the same, or go down at a rate a little bit slower than usual. In an absolute pinch this could save you from your phone dying, but it is not the equivalent of a power bank. I would not rely on this for charging my phone on a big trip where there is a limited access to outlets.

Bright LEDs make this case unusable
Works fine as a battery case, but the four Blue LED lights at the bottom (below the home button) are extremely bright and actually make looking at the phone difficult when they’re on. Bummer, good price but terrible placement.

Do not recommend! Quit working after a few weeks
Do not recommend! Quit working after a few weeks. Hoping it hasn't ruined my phone.

I do recommend and will order another when I upgrade my phone
This case is very slim and allows my twice the battery life of the phone alone. I do recommend and will order another when I upgrade my phone.

Doesn’t even hold a full charge.
Barely holds a 50% charge, confusing to operate although the product description says it’s possible to charge phone and case at the same time. This thing sucks. Sucks. Sucks.

Worked well at first but after a couple months it barely charges.

The blue LED indicator is super bright when charging while I'm trying to sleep
Charger works so/so but it takes forever to charge up. The blue LED indicator is super bright when charging while I'm trying to sleep. WORST thing about this is that the headphone jack isn't usable while the phone is in the case. The hole for the jack is too eep for even the smallest headphone jack.

Bad out of the box
Bad out of the box. It also does not appear to be new but rather refurbished. I would not recommend this product
