Good: not too bulky.. doubles battery on iPhone. sufficiently robust and well designed
Bad: If you are an oaf do not attempt to fit or remove it with eyes closed whilst operating a pneumatic drill!
Comment: I was a bit nervous about buying this. Yes, I needed a battery pack as my iphone 3G's only problem seems to be battery-life. I had read lots of reviews and in the end I bought both the Juice-pack air and the juice-pack original (1900mah) to see which was better. I was nervous having read lots of comments about the sound on/off bit falling off... They both arrived and to those people who seem to break it I would suggest taking your mittens off before fitting it.. Maybe if in the Arctic with thick gloves on you can do this but it you do not attempt to ram it on with your eyes closed I think it is easy enough to put.on. As for the product itself - it really just gives you a full second charge on the phone - which is great. The Air model is much nicer to hold (and less cumbersome than the original model and though slightly lower in capacity than the original (which can charge it more than once) is fine. i think this is an excellent product. It may be that with time I come to prefer the rubberised grip of the original as the Air model might get scratched slightly but I think this is a great product and I am surprised Apple themselves have not launched such a thing. As for losing signal-strength - still have maximum bars on the iPhone though it sometimes drops 1 bar when I have it charging the phone (to be expected as it will create a magnetic field.. I love this product - and got it with some free screen protectors so the front is fine too.
