    I bought my wife a Mophie battery case and she genneraly likes it, as it serves the purpose for which it was designed. Yet both of us are not happy over the need of a micro-usb cable. Yeah its more "standard" but we own a bunch of Lightning cables now we have to get a few micro-usb cables and so we need to use one cable type for her phone, and then swap it out when we want to charge up my phone, or iPads.

    Not a huge hassle but I can see cables going MIA because of the needed swapping.

    Any battery cases that are similar to Mophie (that is as good as mophie in size, quality and design) that use Apple's Lightning cable?

    I have a few of these but none of them are apple certified. I like the idea though. I currently use the uNu Power DX for the iPhone 5 but that uses micro usb.
    How about these maybe (look ugly IMO):

    Thanks, I'll have my wife look at them, but I think she's liking the mophie as she uses it more. Its just a pain now to buy a new set of cables for home/car/work
