    I'm guessing all MFI certified or approved cases will work with the 5s. The Maxboost Fusion for example- not certified, doesn't work as I found out this morning.

    The mophie helium works. I just went and picked one up for the 5s. The max boost was a "no-go".

    Okay. Here are 6 pictures. 3 with the case on, 3 with the case off.

    Seems good to me. Specifically what I was looking for was darkening or excessive light (from flashback) around the edges but that doesn't seem to be a problem. I'll take more pictures tonight in a dark environment to check more for flashback.

    I bought the Mophie Juice Pack Air at my local Best Buy with a printout of the Amazon.com listing of it, and had it price matched. I think it was $80 after tax after the price match. It ended saving me about $20 plus I got the case in my hand today and didn't have to wait for the 5-10 business day super saver Amazon shipping.

    I just got my Juice Pack Air and my iPhone 5s and have an issue where the volume up button is depressed as soon as I slide the case on. It seems like the rubber feet inside the case are pushing the phone a bit too far up and the button is contacting the frame instead of the soft pass-through button. A coworker got one as well and it is a much better fit than mine. I have the product (red) case which actually feels heavier than the white one he got.

    Has anyone else experienced this issue? Apple doesn't sell the Air, so I can't return there, and I would like to avoid having to send it back to Verizon or go into one of their many stores that don't have the accessories.

    Mophie Juice Pack Plus for 5S

    Can anyone confirm this will work well with the dual flash?

    My suggestion would be for you to go to a retailer like Best Buy. If it doesn't work right, return it. No restocking fee.

    And they price match!

    Hey pilot, how did you pull off that price match? My local best buy wouldn't do it cause the amazon listing is from a third party seller. Thanks for any advice.

    You can't price match a third party seller on Amazon, only Amazon as the seller directly.

    Returned my Mophie as it doesn't work like the 4/4s. To sync or connect to car (for streaming over cable or playing via car controls) Mophie wants you to REMOVE the bottom of the case and connect directly to the phone. That was a total dealbreaker for me...
