I have an iPhone 4s that I have been using with a Mophie Juice Pack Plus. I recently dropped my phone (while it was inside the mophie) and it landed on the screen and of course shattered/broke the screen and cracked the Mophie. I got another phone and purchased the new Mophie Juice Pack Pro but not sure that I like it. It limits your ability to put phone in car charger and some other small quirks. Does anyone know of any options out there where I could go back to using the Mophie Juice Pack Plus or either the PhoneSuite Elite case but have some kind of protection so if I drop it this doesn't happen again?


I called Mophie and PhoneSuite and their customer service was horrible. They couldn't offer any suggestions. I wonder if a silicone bumper around the battery case would protect it but all the "teenager" on the other end could say was...."uhhh, I really don't know".


Has anyone out there found a good way to protect your phone in a battery case? I don't want a carrying case because if I take the phone out of the carrying case and I happen to drop it before I put it back in the carrying case/holster, then that doesn't solve the problem.

    i have an iphone 5 in a battery case - dont kow if it will help but there are a couple of companies that make glass screen protectors for the fronto of the phone - Xgear has one called Banshee and I beleive a company called Spigen makes one too - in theory a glass screen protector should work better than the plastic ones because it would shatter before the phone screen ddi - of course i have never dropped any of my iphones so i havent tested that theory out

    you might not have this problem - i had a problem with the adhesive on the spigen protector - it left blotches on the protector - it never spread evenly - i tried 2 different ones - the xgear one seemed to work a lot better for me


    i have a i-Blason battery case ( since the mophie iphone 5 case is not yet out) - no problems with the glass screen protector

    it was the spigen glass protector - the xgear glass one is callwd Ultra Shield for the iPhone 4/4S - Banshee for the iPhone5


    the 4S one is on page 1 of the iphone 4 product pages - the iphone 5 is on page 1 of the iPhone products - despite the different names they have the same price $29.95 although i dont know if they are the same type of glass



    i never had a Mophie case although its gotten good reviews - probably the reason i dont have one for my iPhone 5 is its not available yet and i didnt want to wait - the i-Blason case i have for my iPhone 5 is fine - although a bit bulky - they make a 2nd battery case (whose name i forget) which they included free when i bought mine - that one is hard to get the iPhone out of - the one I use is the one with the power button and charging lights on the front bottom - its easy to get the phone out - but both of them dont protect the front of the phone so the screen protector helps


    Im looking at something called the Contact Slim Design battery pack for the iPhone 5 - its 2500mah - but i spend way to much on accessories


    there is a company called Third Rail Mobility which makes a case for the 4/4S which I had



    they also are working on an iPhone 5 version


    whats interesting about their case is the battery is detachable and can be put on the case only when needed - you can also stack multiple batteries on top of each other on the case - and they claim that when a new model iPhone comes out all you need to do is get a new case - the batteries will work with the new case
