Slim Backup Battery Case for iPhone® 5/5s/SE MFi Certified (2200mAh, 1A) - White
Keep your iPhone® 5/5s internal battery charged throughout the day using this Slim Backup Battery Case from Monoprice!
This MFi certified case not only protects your iPhone 5 or iPhone 5s from the scratches and dings that come from daily use, it also provides an additional power source to keep your iPhone charged at all times. The case has a built-in 2200mAh battery, which is sufficient to fully charge the internal battery on the iPhone 5s, even when accounting for the loss due to voltage changes.
It has built-in protection circuitry, which efficiently prevents damage from short circuits and overcharging, as well as from other malfunctions under extreme conditions. The battery can provide an additional 8 hours of talk or internet surfing time, up to 10 hours of video playback time, and up to 40 hours of audio playback, on top of the iPhone's internal abilities.
The case can be left on, which will keep your iPhone's battery topped up, or it can be turned on when the battery gets low to get the additional boost. It uses a micro USB connection for charging and includes a micro USB charge/sync cable. It has cutouts for all the controls and connections, as well as for the camera on the back.

I'd previously carried an external battery pack (also from Monoprice, but since discontinued), but that's a hassle, I'd sometimes forget or choose poorly, and having a USB cord running from your pocket looks dorky. Now, with this battery case, my battery is extended at the push of a button!
I can mostly-charge my phone on half of the external battery, meaning I can get two most-of-the-way charges. If I let it try to fully charge the phone, it'll pretty close to exhaust the battery case.
PROS: - 1–2 charges per use
- White case integrates pretty well aesthetically with the white phone
- Easy removal: Hold the bottom end, push up on the bottom edge of the phone
- All buttons and the rear camera still usable
- Can't sync through micro USB port (power only—good for plugging into untrusted USB ports)
CONS: - Could still get in the way of some bulkier headphone plugs
- Exposes enough of the phone edge that if your phone is working hard enough, it can get toasty
- Can't sync through micro USB port
While heavier for the extra battery, the iPhone actually fits more comfortably in my large hands with this charger.
While in theory you would always be able to charge off this unit, it uses a different connection than the iPhone 5, which means carrying two different chargers.
The added length means the phone will not fit in the holster I use when I do not have a separate pocket to put it in.
