My iPhone slides downward into the Juice Pack and connects to a 30-pin dock connector similar to the Apple iPhone dock. Everything on the iPhone is accessible. It does not block the camera. When I plug it in, the battery icon changes to a “Charging Icon”. My iPhone will run off of the Juice Pack until the charge is depleted. From that point, I can actually remove the Juice Pack and continue running the fully charged built in iPhone battery.
The Mophie Juice Pack gives me what I always wanted for my iPhone, which is a extended battery life. I get about 12 hours when both the iPhone and the Juice Pack is fully charged. In that 12 hours I can play my music, movie and surfing the web with no sluggishness.
The Juice Pack comes in one piece and it fits right onto my iPhone very tightly so there is no slipping.
The Juice Pack is also a very sleek, fashionable design with a velvety rubber type coating and rubber strip grips on the sides.
The Juice Pack has a bit of protection for the bottom portion of the iPhone.
The Juice Pack inside is a cheese-soft neon green color which makes it easier to find in my bag of gadgets.
My biggest problem with the Mophie Juice Pack is, I can not find a case to fit the iPhone while the Juice Pack is attached.
The Juice Pack offers some protection to the bottom part of the iPhone, but the screen and top portion of the iPhone is exposed and I am starting to see scratches on my iPhone.
The velvety rubber type coating on the Juice Pack scratches way too easily and is prone to nicks and tarnish on the edges. This could be prevented if the Juice Pack had a case.
The Mophie Juice Pack charges the iPhone but not when the the Juice Pack is being charged. In order to charge both the iPhone and the Juice Pack at the same time, I must plug them in separately.
I can not do any syncing while the Juice Pack is connected to my iPhone.
The Juice Pack is thick and bulky and it is impossible to remove it from the iPhone. I found a technique for removing the iPhone from The Juice Pack, but the position I must get into and the faces I make while doing this is very unladylike, so instead I take my boyfriend with me as backup to remove The Juice Pack for me.
The Mophie Juice Pack rubber strip grips on the sides peel off easily. I have to constantly stick it back in place.
When the Juice Pack is warmed up, the glue from the strip grips melt and spills out on to the Juice Pack and on my fingers, which makes a sticky mess.
