    Ok, I've received my incase snap battery case. Here are a few quick impressions on it.
    1. Feels good in the hand, satin finish.
    2. I love that the fact you can turn the battery on/off (press and hold button for 4 seconds)
    3. I love that it has the 30 pin connector

    Some things that I don't like about it.
    1. If you are a clumsy person, this case isn't for you. The sides are not covered at all and it has very minimal "lay on the table" design
    2. Even though that it has a 30 pin connector the darn thing is backwards. Meaning when you put it in a docking station, the phone faces inwards.

    I really like this case since it's the thinnest battery case out on the market.
    I rate this 8.5 out of 10 (if they covered the sides and didn't make the 30 pin backwards, this would have gotten a 10)

    Minimal Lay on the table design

    not bad, and thank you for the review. But I'm holding out for the Incipio version.

    incase

    does the actual battery function read on the phone as remaining life? or just the lights on the back of the case??
    just currious?

    and does it last as long as incase claims

    yes, it reads the battery life remaining. yes it does, it gives it about a 40% extra battery life.

    thanks i have been thinking of getting something like this for days when a charger just isn't handy. and incase seems to make a consistent product.

    Do you know if this would be compatible with a full body skin?

    yes, it would be compatible because the phone snaps into the case.
