With both these battery cases now up on Amazon (Limefuel one up for pre-order). I was wondering which one of these cases is the better buy.

Limefuel

Or wait till the zerolemon is release then decide? They said they will release mid January but if they drag I'll probably pick up the limefuel one.

Why? Just cause its more expensive doesn't necessarily mean it's better. You wouldn't own the N5 if that was a the case.

Whoow don't get all hurt about it man, lol I like the way limefuel case is put together. It seem like a better design IMO. I don't recall saying it was better because its more expensive.

There is at least one video review of iblason case on YouTube. It's not as much a review, coz the video does not talk about how it performs. None for limefuel. I think I'll wait till some reviews come out, comparing the two. What I wonder is why the wireless charging technology not being taken advantage of for these cases? These cases make the phone too long and asymmetrical.

In my experience, cases that clip together from the top and bottom (i-Blason) are much more durable than ones that clip together from the front and back (LimeFuel). Chipped holding teeth are common on the latter.

i-Blason is cheaper, but the LimeFuel touts a larger battery. We'll have to wait and see if the capacities (2860mAh vs. 2500mAh) are overstated, or even understated.

Also, limefuel, from the concept video, looks like it protrudes too much in front. But it is after all a concept video, so I guess we wait till a proper product review comes out.
