    Hello everyone,

    Recently I have been searching thoroughly for another case for my iPhone 5 and decided to check out a battery case since I was having trouble with battery life (iOS 6.0.2 sucked) lol. And since I've been missing my Mophie case for the iPhone 4 I previously bought about a year ago.

    About a week ago, I ordered the Power Bank battery case from TMart.

    Here's the box: ImageUploadedByTapatalk 21359446753.518661.jpg

    When I first opened the box I immediately saw the black and blue charging case and a white USB cord to connect the case with a charger (you can use your iPhone plug with this).

    The case charges the iPhone 5 very well, except there are some things that bug me about it.

    1) There's no way you can charge the phone and the case at the same time (like the mophie case for example). At first it seems like you can charge the case and phone at the same time but it quickly pops up with the iPhone cannot charge with this accessory message.

    2) There's no opening to put your headphones in the phone to listen to your music. So you're pretty much stuck listening to it through your phones speaker.

    3) There's no protection on the sides of the case or the top. I often fear that if I drop the case, I'll crack the screen.

    Besides that, the case works really well and charges my phone up fairly quick. (though nothing like the mophie case ;)).

    You can get the Power Bank case from tmart @ http://www.tmart.com/2200mAh-Extern...view0126&utm_campaign=Case+for+iPhone+5+Black for $35.

    To be honest, $35 is very cheap! Lol, the name brand ones cost close to $100.

    I thought that it does not have any market about the power bank which capacity is under 5000 mAh. I mean i would like choose power bank which can take my iPhone 4s full charged more than twice if i am going outdoor. But it is another matter if you referred is a multi-function gadgets.:) Awesome!
