Incase Power Slider battery case for iPhone 3G

Power-Slider_11-17-08.jpg

Incase has released a new version of their popular Slider case for the iPhone with an integrated battery inside. Called the “Power Slider”, the new case has built-in five LED power level status lights in the back (like the MacBook) and a pass-through port that allows you to charge and sync the phone without removing the case itself.

It obviously adds to the thickness of the phone more than a typical case would, but it’s the first extended battery case that I’m actually considering picking up. And I hate cases. Yet it’s $100, which is a painful premium to anticipate a situation which I rarely find myself in. (I work from home; I know that many iPhone 3G users who are out and about all day have battery life issues.)

    I just bought the incase two days ago. Battery life is no longer an issue it is easy to use. however it knocks the 3G offline within a minute and a lot of the time I get “no service”. When I pull the iphone out of the case it goes back to 3G. Is there something I am not doing?

    I just recently purchased the power slider battery. This works good when it works. I have a 3gs may be this is the problem. But this is what happens, I put the phone in the slider it works for a moment then it no longer charging. I will have to take the phone out of charger then replace again. Why does this happen?

I can using the phone and the call will just drop or the bars would go so low I would drop the call and no service. Take phone out of Slider case no problem. Want to keep case but can’t

    Agree with both here. Was difficult to find a holster that would fit with powerslider. Also – the number of dropped calls is ATROCIOUS. I can be sitting on the couch with 5 bars – then BOOM – dropped call. Take it out of the case – works like a CHARM. I was beginning to blame ATTWS (who I HATE anyway) as a longtime Verizon user who switched just to get this damn IPhone (no jailbreak for Verizon) – but it appears I may have to DUMP this powerslider case (which would make the phone nearly useless battery-wise). Dunno what the answer is here, but I AM PISSED…
