Hands on with Mophie's Juice Pack Helium for iPhone 5
Posted 07 February 2013 - 10:15 AM
You can't sync via USB through the case's Micro-USB port. iOS can sync wirelessly when your iPhone is connected to a charger—when the Juice Pack Helium is powering your phone, the phone thinks it's connected to power, so it will wirelessly sync.

As I understand it, the Maxboost is not Apple-certified. Perhaps I should have made it clear that I was talking about Made For iPhone-certified products, but that was the thrust of my comment.

I'm not sure what difference Apple certification makes, but I too gave up waiting, and bought a battery case from Tanga for about $30. It has been working just fine. My only complaint is that the case itself charges via micro-USB, instead of having its own "Lightning" socket, but the Mophie one seems to have the same arrangement.

Today I gently tried to remove the lower (battery) section of the case and the outer section separated from the inner battery section. There are now 2 lose wires and I am heartbroken.
I have been using Mophie Battery products since their very first model.
Any comments that you may have, any tips or tricks, would be appreciated.
