pics.Yes, I'm very excited to say I received it this morning, and it's charging as we speak (so to speak).
I'm REALLY liking the look and feel on my iphone. For a 1500 mah battery it's amazingly svelte, and while I can't swear that it's smaller in total size than my Mophie Juice Pack Air on the 3gs, I can say that it really SEEMS smaller and thinner. Amazing, especially since the Juice Pack Air had only 1200 mah vs. the 1500 for this exogear. So far, everything about the product says very high quality.
One very nice surprise (I had not seen mentioned before) is that it has an AUTO power off. If this works as advertised it's a VERY big win, and something I've never seen on a battery case before. I'd been using the juice pack air on the 3gs, and I always wasted a LOT of reserve power by forgetting to check and power off the juice pack after the iphone had fully recharged.
I'll provide updates as I get more experience in using it for actually charging the phone, and we'll see if my initial impressions of quality hold up.
The product has a two piece design. One piece is an almost clear, semi rigid bumper (shaped something like apple's bumper), which you see in the drawings, and which snaps onto the other piece, which is a combination of the back portion and the docking portion. It's all very, very slick, and provides excellent protection.What is this bumper you speak of??
I ordered the Mili as well. So far, I think this exogear is very stylish indeed. IMO it's the best looking case (battery or no) that I've seen on the iphone 4. I kid you not. The bumpers have an excellent look, which shows the attractive antenna design and somehow enhances it.For those interested in a battery case, is anyone interested in the mili power spring 4?
At first I was going to get the Exo, but then saw the case from Mili. Its slightly less at 1200 mah but looks more stylish than the Exo. Release date has been pushed from 8/3 to 8/20. Very interested in hearing what others think of these two cases. Would love to see some real shots of the Exo for those that got it. Too bad Mohpie hasn't even mentioned anything for the ip4.
I was on the verge of getting the Exo however, I'm just not crazy about the polycarbonate clear bumper, but I'm very interested in knowing about the material of the rest of the case. The good thing about the Mili is that I can go to a store and see it in person before buying. Although $80 at 1200mah vs. $90 at 1500 mah, the Exo is clearly a better value.I ordered the Mili as well. So far, I think this exogear is very stylish indeed.

Mophie did say on their web site (at one point) that they'll have a new exciting battery case for the iphone 4, with some important surprise features. But they've got no dates and I don't think they're worth waiting for.
The material on the back of the case (and the small area on the front by the dock) is visually indistinguishable IMO from the back of a black 3GS. Glossy and very attractive.I'm very interested in knowing about the material of the rest of the case. ... Although $80 at 1200mah vs. $90 at 1500 mah, the Exo is clearly a better value.
My case got hot on the bottom just once. That was when I let a friend use it to charge his iphone which had gotten down to the absolutely won't turn on, totally dead state. I've never had a battery that was able to restore an iphone from such a condition. I've always had to use wall power to get a phone out of such a state, and I was amazed that the exogear got him running in about two minutes. It took about 6 minutes to get him to 10%.I'm very disappointed to report that when charging the iPhone, the bottom of the Exolife gets too hot to touch.
Anyone want to confirm they have a similar issue please?
thats not my video but i'm thinking of buying an exogear. i have morphie juice air for my 3g and even with 1% battery (the juice or the phone) it never flickr on off like that.Yes. But this may be because you have a very low charge on the exolife. Charge it for a full hour without the iPhone inside and try to see if this happens.
Well yes this should not happen. Clearly there are many issues with this case and Exogear should fix them asap. I do not recommend you guys purchase this case right now!thats not my video but i'm thinking of buying an exogear. i have morphie juice air for my 3g and even with 1% battery (the juice or the phone) it never flickr on off like that.
