iPhoneck Backup Battery – What It Lacks In Subtlety It Makes Up For In Battery Life

By Andrew Liszewski

If you’re concerned about the iPhone’s overall size and the varied reports about its battery life, I don’t think the iPhoneck Backup Battery solution is going to entice you to make the upgrade. While it provides the iPhone with an external 1300-1400 mAh lithium-polymer battery that can recharge it in about an hour and a half, it also adds about 2 or 3 inches to the length of the phone when attached. Sure it’s designed to match the contours of the new iPhone 3G (though the first gen iPhone is pictured) but you probably don’t want to carry this thing in your pocket while you’re topping up the battery. The iPhoneck Backup Battery ‘should’ be released on August 1 according to the iPhoneck website, and will sell for $42.99.

    I recently ordered 2 battery packs for my amazing iphone. As I travel alot I wanted to be able to extend the battery life.

    Iphoneck seemed to have the answer. I ordered 2 of there battery packs and delivery was meant to start the following week. Several weeks later no Battery pack and no responce to my emails. I finally got an answer after making a complaint to Paypal which is how I paid for the order. I got an immediate responce unlike the emails I sent to iphoneck. They promised to send my good that week. # weeks later after ignoring more emails they finally sent the order.

    Finally I thought but only to be quickly disappointed. Ine of the Battery packs rattled and the light did not work. In fact once the battery was discharged it failed to charge. It was a dud.

    I emailed iphoneck once again and again and again only to be ingnored again. They were not interested.

    The other battery pack also fails to measure up to its claims and go flat in just a few hours on standby. Its also a dud.

    I warn anyone NOT to purchase these items from IPHONECK this companies customer service is non existant and there products are shoddy and cheap as well as not performing to specification.

    I also ordered the extended battery pack for the iPhone 3G and even though I have emailed them numerous times I get no answer. My next step is to report them to the Better Business Bureau as they have already charged my credit card, but no battery. DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY!!

    Indeed iPhoneck's 1500 mAH backup battery does not work and no response from the company.
    Very disappointed! This company should be disallowed to do business on apple products,wg.

    Iphoneck is one of the worst companies I have ever dealt with! They should not be in business. Never buy a product from them. It is a complete ripp-off. A very sad story and I hope not too many people were scammed by these folks.
