    This looks like its gonna be a good battery case, its not as strong as Mophie's case. But this has a 30 Pin Dock connector. It offers corner protection but not protection on the sides. I would like someone to do a review on this case. ASAP. I know this was announced today.
    And at $60.00 its not bad.
    for the details

    I think its kind fugly as well. I would have preferred that they went with the slider style like the 3GS power slide.

    I got excited at the thought of a snap case with a battery. But I don't like it either. The incipio version based off the feather is much nicer looking. This thing doesn't really even resemble the regular incase snap, which I personally love.

    Agreed! Thinking about picking up the incipio battery case once it comes out.

    I've been checking the incipio site every day lately. I can't hardly wait for "mid December" to get here.

    The reason why its not a slider is because of 'glassgate'
    also am i seeing this right? Do you need to pu the the dock connector in backwards?

    ONLY 900 mAh?!?

    But I guess you have to sacrifice battery capacity for case size.

    Ok, I've received my incase snap battery case. Here are a few quick impressions on it. (will do a better review on it soon)
    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)

    I'll get either pics or video on this case soon.
