    Going to the US next week and will be keeping in touch with business here very frequently. Just bought my first i phone 5s and getting thoroughly confused which external battery to go for. I see the Anker 2400 on amazon but problem with flimsy part on it and thought that might be the one. Is this better than the Mophie Juice Pack plus pls? I have an otterbox defender series cover which I guess I will have to take off for any of these external batteries. Any suggestions gratefully received!;)

    If you can spend the extra money on a battery case get the uNu Power DX for the iPhone 5s. If you want a battery pack that you use a lightning cable with I recommend the Anker 3000mah battery pack for $20 on amazon.

    That is the same exact one (including the specs) as uNu's power DX. Just lifecharge's brand in it and cheaper.

    That was the one I was looking at originally today but reviews not great about 'being fiddly' and probably a bit fragile...for big hands!! Do you think the Mophie isnt as good as say the Anker? Must be for the 5s. Really appreciate your input in my dilemna!!:D

    I say the mophie is better than anker in terms of quality. If you look at the USA site, you will see many of the same battery cases that look exactly like Anker's.
    Here one that looks just like Anker's and I also have it:

    Get this one! I have it and love it:
