I thought it might be good to list all our options in a single thread. It would be nice to list the pro's and cons of each. If you own any of these cases, please share your opinion. If your case is on its way or don't have any experience with a battery case, please refrain from posting.

Battery Full Powerglider
While zerolemon offers the largest capacity while being cheapest among the set
My choice is easily the powerglider because of case size: batteryCapacity ratio

How long have you had your powerglide? I read reports that after 3-4 weeks people were having problems.

It would be great if we can put up a quick comparison table of all the 4 stating pros and cons, especially when it comes to size (dimensions), weight and performance/IO with recommendations. this will enable users to take a quick decision.

Lol, I have used all versions of the morphie with the iPhone at work. Didn't realize I had to post my resume .

I got my limefuel case in ~2 days ago and have been using it pretty steadily. It adds not as much bulk as you would think and feels incredibly solid. No movement at all of the phone when it is in the case.

Turned the case on today around 30% battery. With light to medium use it charged it up to 90%.

Will post more info and pictures tomorrow.

The thing is, we want to know your experience with the cases listed. We don't care about your experience with past cases. Thus saying the case is on its way doesn't add any value when we are trying to decide which case to buy.

I noticed the limefuel only has a 3 star rating on amazon which concerns me slightly. Is it easy to add / remove your phone? I would use this case when I won't have access for to a charger for vacations or days I am out and about. I can't see using it for an everyday case.
