Mophie Juice Pack Helium - slippery?

Does anyone find the new Mophie Juice Pack Helium for iPhone 5 too slippery?

I had the Juice Pack for iPhone 4 and it was more tacky on the back.

Just wondering if other members are experiencing the same thing? I'm thinking of returning it now. I fear I will drop my phone.

It does seem a little slippery at times despite the soft grip surface. Doesn't bother me enough to want to return it though.

Just ordered one. I'll let you know when it comes. However it's not something I'm likely to use on a daily basis. I like to have it for when I go on business trips (away from charger access and using the phone much more heavily than normal).

It is slightly less grippy than my old juice pack air but not enough that it bothers me. I'm away from the mains 12 hours plus every day so its a godsend, finally I don't have to cart around my Vita battery pack and lightning cable

I thought it was ok. Not too slippery but not too grippy. It never got caught in my jeans.

I will say that I didn't think it was that comfortable to use. The weight felt a little off and I hate the deep cutouts for the buttons. Covered buttons could have gone a long way with this case.

I signed up to be notified when it's available, so got the chance to order it on Feb 5th.

I agree somewhat with rapaleeman, the buttons are recessed a bit too much. Doesn't bother me that much though as I'm jailbroke and use Activator shortcuts for lots of stuff like sleep etc.
