    So I purchased the plus. Love it, however, my phone died and then I flipped on the switch and only got it to 94% from dead. I didn't use the phone either. Do I have a dud? Should I return it?

    Wondering what others get from their juice pack plus.

    It was fully charged. So the juice pack needs to be cycled a few times?

    Yes, new batteries need to be cycled to get more out of it just like new devices.

    only change up to 80% I read a few places (including the instructions that came with the juice pack plus) that after 80% it takes longer and needs more power to change your phone. So after 80% shut off the juice pack, and don’t wat for the phone to die, start charging it at 20-30%, and you’ll get more out of the external battery.

    Also you're probably using it as it's charging, so that will also lessen the battery.

    Last question you guys recommend the air over the plus or really doesn't make too much of a difference. Was thinking of going air instead if it's much slimmer. If it's not then I'll stick with the plus.

    My wife has the Air and I think that works well. It delivers enough power and its too big.
