iBattz Mojo Hi5 Power Bank Case Review - iPhone 5

At CES 2013, there were a lot of new iPhone 5 battery cases introduced to the market, each more appealing than the other. iBattz released its own share of power and protective accessories for iPhone 5 and some of them are by far the best we’ve seen (so far). The Mojo Refuel for iPhone 5, Mojo Armor for iPhone 5 and the Mojo Hi5 Power Bank are products that will definitely appeal to your needs.

Mojo Hi5 Power Bank battery case for iPhone 5 features, like all the others in the line iBattz released earlier this year, an interchangeable battery. The product features a high capacity 2500mAh battery and an overall case that provides great protection for the adventurous user. According to the iBattz press release it is “ideal for outdoor enthusiasts, students and anyone that needs a battery case that will withstand the elements and power on the go”.

Even if iBattz’s Mojo Hi5 Power Bank iPhone 5 battery case is made of plastic it still remains one of the best looking power accessories available today for Apple fans. The case snaps-on quite easily around the sides of your device and comes in two colors: total black or white, each one with a tribal pattern on the back at the top and at the bottom of the case. However, like the uNu case, this will also leave your iPhone 5’s top and bottom edges exposed and since it is made from thin plastic, you should still be careful with it.

The back shells also feature three holes, one at the top and two at the bottom which are used to connect the detachable battery pack, which looks so sleek thanks to the metallic case. The case with the battery on is 125.7 by 60.4 by 18.2 mm and weighs 76.5g, and while it might not be the world’s thinnest iPhone 5 battery case it is one of the best looking.

The Mojo Hi5 Power Bank case packs a 2500 mAh Li-Ion battery that will double the iPhone 5’s standard battery life. It basically adds to the fun another 11 hours of web browsing and 10 hours of talk time. The Hi5 battery pack charges your iPhone 5 two times faster than the standard 500mA USB power output and can also be used to charge other mobile devices via the USB cable. The USB to Lightning port cable isn’t quite elegant, but it is easier on the eye than other products.

For $79.95, the iBattz Mojo Hi5 Power Bank iPhone 5 does pretty much everything you’d expect from a battery case, although in terms of protection and slimness there are better products available.
