    "Amongst the products that we were paid to highlight was the Incase Power Slider ($99) which offers a protective case and extended battery back in one."

    Nice case, but it appears to be very large.

    seems really biased towards incase, not even mentioning one case from Griffin...

    It needs a built in flash. It would be nice accessorie for $99.

    It seems biased towards Incase because I really liked the products I mentioned. I have a ton of stuff from Griffin in the lab and nothing impressed me enough to make the list. The Clarifi looks promising but I haven't gotten my hands on one yet.

    I think I saw

    I think I saw a jumper cables on that thing.... Defeats the purpose... Just get a storm.. http://www.more-thing.com/storm-1900mah-battery.html
    They are great and just connect when you want... very light....

    Imagine meeting a girl with your incase power slider in your pants pocket....

    It looks a great product. At $99 it's not your usual disposable case though. You'd buy it because it's a nice sleek fit and then Apple would very slightly alter the shape of the new phone and it'd be redundant.

    Okay if you get it with a new phone and get 18 months/two years of good use out of it.

    I think they've done a pretty good job of keeping it sleek looking but that and the phone together would be a bit heavy I think.

    Seriously happy i found this thread/link as it lead me to the Scosche passPORT which is something I have been dying for since I got my 3G. Now I can finally charge it in my Infiniti G35, something that the pin change on the 3G prohibited with the iPod cable in the car.:D

    I have the case and in all fairness I tried the kenginton battery. The incase is nice because it is hard shell with silicone around it so it can take a few falls *I dropped mine accadently out of a 2 story roof no scratch* and still be smooth. Its not cheap but its designed to like apple work. I personally love it and would highly recommend it.
