Apparently the LED's dont blink anymore unless you press the button now which is a welcome improvement

The discount code(s) don't work for the mophie helium as far as I know. He would be talking about the "KEEP15" code for 15% most likely.

I had to read your comment a couple of times.

the first time through, I read this as "I have replaced my Apple Genius with a burrito."

i see that there is going to be an air and pro as well. im fine with ordering the helium. I had the air and plus for my 4 and 4S and didn't see much of a difference. with the iphone 5 being so thin id rather a thinner battery case.

Haha yeah the light is pretty intense. Once my eyes have adjusted my mophie works well as a nightlight.

Mophie not honoring rebate codes - Reply from customer support

I emailed customer support about being issued a rebate code after signing up for the mailing list and then how the rebate code will not work with the purchase of the new Helium case. Here is their response.


"I completely understand your point of view and understand. This was per the CEO of the company. For what reason, we do not know why. I would suggest saving the coupon code for a later purchase. Again, I apologize for any inconvenience."

So, the decision came from the top. I will try and contact the CEO and voice my concerns about the rebate code not being honored with the Helium case.

Got mine this weekend. I know they just announced the air but really don't need 100% more each and every day. 80% plus a smaller size was perfect for my needs. Honestly I'd be happy with getting an extra 20-50% more on my average days and for travel days 80% is perfect!!

Lets me move up my brightness a little, not worrying about anything like wifi or Bluetooth or notifications or apps draining it and so on. Peace of mind really. Also helps because when I'm home I'm lazy and drain it down to 5% because the damn charging cable is so damn short and hate being tethered to the wall.

I've had Mophie cases before and they make a great product. This one is just as good as any of them I've had in the past. Like the size, feel and the darker one is pretty slick looking too. I think the size is great. Still pocketable. Having the extra battery life is awesome.

As far as syncing it using the lightening accessories, I have a Mini Countryman with a Ycable with lightening adapter on it, it is so easy to remove the bottom while leaving the top part of the case on it doesn't bug me at all. So for those times I want to listen to a podcast or music off the phone in the car, i just remove the bottom. Pretty simple and takes 2 seconds. Everything else I have/need can be done via Bluetooth, wifi and airplay so for me the access to the lightening port is a moot point.

Do you have to remove the case every time you charge it or can you use the USB to charge the iPhone and the case at the same time?

The supplied USB charges the iPhone and Mophie at the same time.

And I'll second snowcrash's statement on the peace of mind part. That's the real value. I got mine last week and did 3 back to back days on the ski slopes running:
  1. SkiTracks (GPS tracking app)
  2. Spotify (streaming music)
  3. iMessage
  4. Find My Friends
  5. Email (keep in touch with work)
  6. IMO (instant chat to keep in touch with work)

The iPhone 5 battery could only handle this load for about 3 hours before being around 10% battery left. I'd have to quit apps and watch my phone before getting the Mophie. Now I leave everything running and still have over half the battery life before my legs can't handle another run.

Thanks!!!! I thinking about doing this because I work outside all day long and I have to be careful about battery life to make sure I have enough. I don't like car chargers because was always told that isn't good for the phone battery.
