Looks like a very cool accessory, though I feel they'll need to do better with the pricing..

Very cool and I agree with you that the price needs to come down a bit. These companies making cases need to keep in mind that the tablet itself cost $200. Paying $60 for a case is not very practical imo. People put $30 cases on their $500 phones which seems a bit more reasonable.

Although tablets are bigger than phones....I don't think it constitutes twice the cost.

I don't see how paying $500 for a phone is reasonable. My leather Belkin case cost 40 bucks. $60 is reasonable considering it double battery life.

Just what the Fire needed - the added weight of an additional battery!

I don't think I've ever had enough battery problems to warrant spending $60 on 2x the battery life. I do throw my kindle into my book bag often though, so I will stick with my durable case so the screen stays pristine.

My only wish is the battery pack would have in integrated mic and volume buttons. Other than that it looks pretty neat!

That looks like a nice case. The price doesn't seem that bad saying it doubles the battery life. The extra size would probably almost be a good thing for me since the Kindle Fire is a smaller sized tablet. I might consider getting that case eventually.

This is pretty slick if you are away from a place where you can charge on a frequent basis. The price is a tad high but not that much more than the leather Marware case my wife bought me. Personally, I'm holding out for when USB OTG is enabled and evaluating my options (maybe a case with keyboard or sdcard).
