The iPhone 5's battery is 1440mAh, so it's certainly conceivable that a 1700mAh battery could double the use time. And the Air is attractive, well made, comfortable, and doesn't add too much bulk. The only drawback Lex mentioned is the headphone jack. That makes a 4.5-mouse rating entirely reasonable.

I suggest refusing the delivery if you are there when the guy comes to drop it off. That way it gets returned to them without you spending any extra $. They can either credit you for the Air model or refund your $ at that point.

There is no way the Mophie Juice Pack Air 1700 mah can provide a full 100% charge. Even if you start charging from 0 to 100% without using the iPhone 5 , it will never reach 100% .
The only way that will provide a full charge is the ibattz Refuel battery case coming out in April with a spec of whopping 2200 mAh ....

What I said was:

Since I obviously don't know much about battery cases, please explain to me how there is "no way" a 1700mAh battery can ever double the use time of a 1440mAh device.
I obviously have no affiliation with Mophie. My earlier comment was simply replying to a post that said Lex's rating wasn't warranted. Even if it were true that the JPA couldn't fully double use time, that wouldn't make it a bad product. Many people aren't shopping based entirely on mAh–an hour or so of extra use time, when you're already talking about many hours of use, isn't going to be the deciding factor for many people. Design, features, usability, etc. matter as much or more.
As an aside, I find it interesting how many first-time posters we've had criticizing reviews and helpfully suggesting competing products.

In order for me to listen to iTunes in my car... or any audio besides the Bluetooth enabled speakerphone ... I have to plug my lightning cable into the front faceplate of my head unit.
But with this Mophie unit, there is no audio out / passthrough via the supplied usb cable.
I'm sure there was a good reason.. like licencing issues.. for them not to include a lightning port instead of USB port... but it's still quite disappointing.
