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

Thanks for the suggestion. I have watched a video on the Spigen and looks like it may be an option if the thickness will allow it to fit inside the Mophie. (In their video they mentioned that cases that fit over the sides of the iPhone cause problems with the glass protector). I have sent a question/request to Spigen to see if it will. Thanks so much.

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

needleman_mark......was it the spigen glass protector or just a regular screen protector that you had? I did not see a glass one on the xgear site for the iphone 4S is why I looked at Spigen. I looked at the i-Blason case but do not see one for the iPhone 4S, that's a shame, it is a good looking case. Did you have a Mophie prior to your iPhone 5? If so, how does the i-Blason compare??? Thanks for your reply.

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

Thanks so much for all of the info. I checked with i-Blason and they don't make a battery case for iPhone 4S.
I have gotten accustomed to the battery life the Mophie provided (2000 maH) so I don't want anything any less than that. I will look at the other options you suggested. I really appreciate your information and response.
