The first time I actually saw this iPhone case, I was watching a syndicate project video which happened to be his gaming setup. (One of my favorite videos of his of all time) I saw him pull out his iPhone and he said “Check this out, It’s a spare battery in your phone case! It charges your phone after the original battery has run out”. Which I thought was something completely unheard of. I mean my iPhone is always running out of juice or battery so I didn’t know if this was to good to be true!
Is your iPhone always running out of Juice?
I have seen the portable chargers that you carry that look like the portable USB hard drives but nothing like a phone case that charges your phone! Once I saw it, I HAD TO HAVE IT! So I went online and did some searching and came across this Belkin phone case!
One of the main concerns that I had for this phone case was. Will it hold up a charge even if it’s dropped a couple of times? And how fast does the battery charge for? Turns out this case had the best of both worlds! In the listing it said the phone case would be able to charge your phone back to 100% and it will be consistent even after you drop it several times! Pretty crazy! So I went ahead and purchased the thing. Once the packaged arrived I went straight and opened up the package.
It comes with:
1. The Phone Case Itself
2. An adapter charger because it changes from a regular iPhone 5 charger to a micro USB charger.
3. An earphone extension. Because as you can see it extends at the bottom to fit the battery so you’ll need that adapter to fit your head phones in.
While opening up the box I immediately plugged the phone case in to see if it worked. Once it said it was 100% charged I went ahead and put the phone case on my iPhone 5. It snapped on like a dream. With several clicks the case was securely fit on my phone. Now, with all this I have now used this iPhone case since December and it has worked flawlessly. Never lost any charge and I have dropped it a couple times on “accident” and it still works as it did the first day I had it! I give this a starfish rating of 5 out of 5. And recommend it to all!
