Anyone get this yet? I bought the first battery case available and It was great while it lasted but couple months just quit working. Thinking of getting this but damn $100 is a lot for a case

I bit the bullet and ordered this case, hopefully it will be much better than the cheap generic case which was great for 2 months than turned out to be crap.

Mugen appears to have a good reputation

Yeah I bought one from mobilefun it was the first battery case available that I know of. It worked great would charge the phone real fast and was for the most part reliable. Than came the day that it refused to work at all...

BTW, picking it up tomorrow, pretty fast considering it shipped from China. That might explain the $20 shipping fee. Which is perfect I'll have it before I go camping next Wednesday

I'm eagerly awaiting to hear how this case works out for you. Very interested in it.. Can you post some pictures when you get a chance?

Just got the Case, will take pictures later. I can tell you that the case adds a lot of bulk. Protection seems better than the generic "power jacket" from mobilefun.com. still feels vulnerable if it were to fall in it's back. It says that it's charging "AC" as opposed to "USB" I was listening to music(not streaming) while using GPS and the it still appeared to charged as opposed to flat lining or worst draining.

The volume and power rockers are accessible however the case makes it difficult to actually use them. Taking the phone out of the case is a real challenge

Thanks for the first impressions and pictures! I don't mind the bulk if it substantially extends the life, but that volume rocker cutout is worrying. Wish they had built buttons into the case. Have you used headphones with it? Curious how snug that opening is...

Hell, I get 1 day 10 hours a charge according to GSAM I'd think if you doubled your battery capacity you'd be getting a lot more battery life than I am. I by no means a power user but I am on my phone a lot during the day. My biggest issue now is whether to charge when I get home at night or try and make it through the next day. It's a good problem to have. Right now I'm at 49% and I took it off the charger yesterday morning. I love this phone.

That case looks cool if you need the extra power. I'll keep it in mind if I need a power case.
