Default Nexus 5 battery case

Please post evidence of battery cases that are available or manufacturers that built Nexus 4 cases to watch.

Don't want one for a daily driver but for long airport travel and vacation days.

It took zero lemon months to get it out. I bought it and to be honest it wasnt a good product. I just carry a battery back in my bag when i know i will be gone for a while.

I emailed ZeroLemon about a Nexus 5 case, mentioning the back was fairly easily removable and whether they would be making one for the Nexus 5 and here's what they said:

This case will be out in mid January due to holiday season and project lineup with our other products.
I'd only be interested if it were a replacement battery and back as opposed to a "charging case"

I wouldn't trust them. They promised one for the Galaxy nexus from the Playstore and they never released it.

I also email zerolemon and they told me the same thing. I'm very interested in what they can come up with.

Not necessarily a case, but it can work with or without a case... http://www.power-skin.com/popn/samsu...ry-charger.php

I haven't used any of PowerSkin's products, but I ordered it so I'll experiment and see how it is.

(If anyone decides to buy it, this coupon gives $5 off.)

Now that is very interesting. I wonder if it covers the camera? With the sale and the coupon that might just be worth it to get me through the few circumstances were I wouldn't have access to a charger. The thing that I like about this option is that I don't need to remove the existing case. Pretty cool idea.

Actually, I am not sure that this will work after looking at it. The micro USB port is backwards on the Nexus 5 as compared to the Samsung devices. Does that case allow you to flip the USB port direction or is it fixed?

Well in any case, I can just mod or buy a usb cable.. thats really all that big gray thing seems to be. It's advertised Samsung, Motorola, Sony, and LG so... /shrug.

I can report after it arrives.
