    Hi guys, I just got an Anker battery case for my iPhone 5. I am curious as to if an external battery pack would be able to charge my phone through the case. Anyone know?

    Yes, the iPhone in the case charges first then the battery case. (that's the usual process for battery cases charging with the device in the case)
    Just saying the Anker Battery case is generic version of many battery cases now on the market, in other words it is from a single factory that puts other companies logos on them. I'm a reviewer and I have 10+ of those and they all look the same.

    Ok cool. So I can still carry around my battery packs if I need even more power for my phone.

    Nice. Apparently the blue Anker case is said to be kind of flimsy, but I got the black one and it's not flimsy at all really.

    Na, just turn it on when your phone battery is low.

    I have the battery case installed on my iPhone I meant. When I get low, I turn it on. When I get to 70-80%, I turn it off. Not doing any harm to my 1 year and 6 month old iPhone 5:).
