I have been using the i-Blason for about 2 weeks now & it is awesome. My wife & I both have one for our iPhone 5's. It will charge from 0 - 100% & still have battery power left over to bring it back to 30% when it goes to 0 again. Mophie can't come close to that. I highly recommend i-blazon. It is also lighter than the Mophie. Only way to go in my eyes.

I've tried to recharge my phone a couple of time from 1 to 10 % remaining, but it never got it back to more than 60 - 70 %. My mophie juice pack plus that I owned previously for my iphone 4s, could recharge all the way, so I echo Lex's request for Mophie Pb or something that has more battery capacity.
The deep cutouts are an issue when using the camera (flash reflects off the recessed inset to cause bad exposure and the phone's top and side buttons are a little bit hard to press.
Finally, I'm especially disappointed about the micro-USB. I was hoping to be able to recharge the Mophie with the same Lightning connector I use for the phone. Now, I'll have to carry around yet another connector, which is annoying and likely to cause me to eventually get stranded without the right one with me.
One of the other commentors here mentioned the i-Blazon, so I'll probably have a look at this case mainly because it gives more power and uses the Lightning connector.
I do like the look and feel of the Helium, but would not rate it more than 2.5/5 stars because of the above-mentioned shortcomings.

Hi, friend. 1 or 2 months later you will find FA80 can meet your basic request and much more.
