Are all cases equal? I know there is Mophie but on eBay I see cheaper with the same or larger battery. I want to buy one and want some feedback from those who have bought battery cases.

The cheapest I seen Mophie cases for are about forty or fifty dollars on eBay. My cutoff is $50.

I recommend getting an external battery back instead and get a case for your device off amazon. Most battery cases are sound 2600 mah and external battery packs can be 5200, or 7200 or 10000 or even 13000mah I saw recently. IMO. I assume you have an iPhone 5
Here's a good combo:
Anker® Astro 5600mAh High Capacity Portable Power Bank Backup External Battery Charger with built-in Flashlight for Apple:

Yes, I have the 5. I have an external battery pack and a case already just wanted something already on the phone.

Which size would double the life of the iPhone?
