    Default Recommend an Iphone 4 battery case
    See title.

    I currently have a Tekkeon case which does the job.

    The only problem I have is the battery strength indicator - it's pretty pointless. Blue LED means it's over 20%, red means it's less than 20%. When charging, blue means over 80%, red means less than 80%.

    Anyone recommend a case that gives a more precise indication?

    1) I don't use the case for every-day, as I don't need the extended battery life it provides. But I can't imagine traveling without it. The case is very easy to use, and very easy to slide onto the phone. The final look of the phone/case is pretty seamless, and clearly shows the design was carefully considered.

    2) I love the feel of the case. Although it's bulkier than most iPhone 4 cases I've tried, if fits comfortably in my hand, and I got used to the size very quickly. In fact, when I remove the case, my phone feels too small for a while. The phone seems very well protected when in the Mophie case.

    3) I find I use my phone a whole lot more when I'm not at home, so having the extended battery the case provides has been extremely convenient and useful. I've had this case for 5 months, with periods of frequent use along with times where it's idle in a drawer. I haven't noticed a decrease in battery capacity from when it was brand new. It still performs the same now as when I first used it.

    4) The only con I can really list is the size of the case. It definitely adds size to the phone, and takes getting used to, but is so far from a deal breaker that I only mention it because it may be an issue to some.

    As a practical accessory, you can't beat the Mophie Juice Pack Air Case and Rechargeable Battery for the iPhone4.
    That's not a Mophie. Go top yourself.

    I think on wow cases . com they have a 1400 capacity battery case that uses the native iPhone charger cable and also has a kick stand(evo) for around $30ish.

    If I get another battery case that'll be it.

    I don't use a case most of the time for this reason, but for the times I need a battery case I use Third Rail

    If longer battery on your iPhone 4 is what you need, the Mophie Juice Pack Air is what you want, although it will add some serious bulk to your iPhone.

    You can usually search eBay and find the exolife battery pack for the iphone 4 for around $30.
    If you want to purchase new, you can go to exolife.com and purchase directly from them.

    I. They are extremely helpful, and when I called them with a question, they were able to answer it.
    2. The physical profile of the exolife battery pack is much smaller than the mophie or whatever else is out there.
    3. Unit performs flawlessly and I use it every day. (I deliver items to customers so I use Maps and my phone as contact.)
    4. It is very easy to connect/disconnect and it does not scratch the phone.
    5. Almost twice the usage time as standard iphone (exolife has the exact same battery as the iphone)

    6. Only thing negative is that there is no protection on the front of the phone.
