For review, I was sent the PowerSkin A4 Slim Protective Battery Case* from Skiva Tech. This is a phone case with a built in battery. It’s perfect for phones, like mine, that don’t have the battery life they once did. Easy to use, no cords while charging your phone, and it even comes with a little kickstand on the back for watching videos and so forth. The case is holds 1400mAh (which equals about one full charge on my iPhone 4s).
I was excited to try out this phone case because, as I mentioned, my phones battery life is simply not what it once was. I’ve had my phone for about 2 and a half years now, and it really seems that the batteries on phones start to go bad about them. (I theorize there isn’t a coincidence between most companies having two year contracts and most of my phones starting to go down hill around year two, but my iPhone is fairing well.) I’m particularly looking forward to using this case on days I know I won’t have time to plug in my phone to the wall or my portable charger, but need more charge than my battery now holds.
I spend an hour or so every afternoon (at least now that it’s spring) outside watching YouTube videos when I get how from work. The little kickstand on the back of this case is going to be particularly useful for those times. I also have a wireless keyboard that I like to use in conjunction with my cell phone when I’m at coffee shops or something like that. The kickstand will be useful for that at well, so I can prop up my phone and see the screen as I type.
As much as I like this case, I do have two points of contention that came about during my review. 1) The first case I received I had to return. It wouldn’t turn on. I was quite pleased with the speed that the company sent out my new case, however. I had the new one the day after I sent out the old one to return! 2) The instructions are difficult to understand/ are poorly written. This is less of a use problem (as you can still work it without them), but it’s something that bothers me. Badly written instructions are a pet peeve of mine!

Overall, I like this PowerSkin case from Skiva Tech. I look forward to reviewing future products from this company. I will continue to use and enjoy using this case for the purposes I mentioned above.
