    I have a handy little 'Power Bank' case on my iPhone 5s and as soon as I updated to iOS 8 it is now an unsupported accessory and will no longer give me juice.
    Lame.

    As of right now you can still downgrade to iOS 7.1.2. Just download the ISPW and then DFU restore. :)

    Probably didn't license their chips from Apple... 3rd party parts.. gotta watch them...

    They can find a way to sneak it through the current generation, but if it doesn't have Apple's little tattle tail chip in there, then you'll be out the money come the next update.

    I don't support Apple's little method of making sure that they get money for everything anyone sells, but knowing that it's there, you have to choose carefully what you buy.
