    I would like some opinions from people who own these battery cases for the iPhone 5/5s! Thanks!

    battery case for iphone 5S

    I was looking at Lenmar as well but I came across smartcase pro today, @ 6000mAh, it looks solid. You may want to check it out...

    Wow that's big. Not sure if I need that much.

    I do like the ibattz mojo deal with interchangeable batteries. That seems nice. You can carry around multiple batteries for as many charges as you want.

    I have both cases. They are both very good case. The ibattz has a cool feature that allows you to replace the battery do you can continue charging your device. It uses a galaxy s3 battery which are very cheap now. Each battery gives about 1 full charge.
    The lenmar is my personal favorite (along with uNu power dx which is the same exact battery case, down to the specs). It has charged my iPhone 5 at least once and more (about 120% extra power in my test). I like he feel of the case much more than the ibattz.

    If I were you, I would get the lenmar it uNu if you were only choosing those.

    I was using the uNu for 5 months until I got my hands on this:
    Tylt Energy Power Case iPhone 5 and 5s - Retail Packaging - Black/Gray by Tylt http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ENZRQ96/ref=cm_sw_r_udp_awd_rnrttb1KRG22J
    It has more power and has charged my iPhone 5 adding 150% of battery. I like this one more currently. The case and the battery case is removable so you don't need to be always holding the heavy part of the case.
    Any more questions please ask! I'm here to help:)

    Do you think the ability to carry around extra batteries for the ibattz is better than the tylt case?

    I never have the need for more than 1 extra charge. I also have a battery pack in my bag for when I need it. If you think you need more than 1 charge get the ibattz. If you only need one, get something like the uNu or the tylt.

    The Tylt looks the nicest imo and it appears to be the cheapest right now too.

    It's says in the description of the other colors ($99 ones) it is 2500mah.

    Oh wow, you are right, looking at the pictures. It still looks like a good case though.

    What ever you think. I like the uNu or lenmar in gold better personally. All are very good cases IMO.

    Look at the anker one then. I just like the feel of the uNu better than the anker.

    All of the reviews mainly say the Anker one is kinda flimsy, have you had that one? The Tylt looks nice for the price and looks sturdy as well.

    The anker works but is not solid. It uses frames that are not that tight of fitting. It is a generic battery case that is apple certified. I don't have that tylt case but judging from tylt products that I have, it will hopefully work great for you.

    I think I'm gonna get the white lenmar. Looks better on my white phone and it's MFI certified(?)
