After a week of testing, it is finally time to get this review done! I’ve used this every day and even brought it on a skiing trip, so I can say that if it lived up to that testing, then I think it’s worth at least a consideration!
Let’s start off talking about the build quality of the Exolife iPhone Battery Pack. Overall, this case is pretty solid and is extremely thin for having a battery pack built in! Now as you may know, I like my products to have a little bit of weight to them, so I know they’re built to last and when I drop them they’re not going to just float away. This being said, the Exolife iPhone 4 Battery Pack has just the right weight to it. The only thing I think needs a little bit of remodeling is the clear bumper clip on piece, because it’s a little too flimsy for my liking.
Next, as far as how much battery extension this case has, it just about doubles the life of your iPhone. Now I’ve heard people say that it more than doubled their iPhone case, but for me it seems to give it just about 1 more full charge. In my opinion, this is pretty amazing considering how skinny this case is, it’s hard to believe how much extra life this thin case can add to your iPhone 4!
As far as overall design, I think Exogear did a very good job on this one! The design and layout of the Exolife case is pretty eye catching in my opinion. I like the matte black color and the grippy surface on the back. The one and only buy-breaker that I found was that there is no lip or bevel on the front of the case to protect the screen from facedown drops or placement. In my opinion the entire idea of me purchasing a case is to protect the front screen from popping and seeing that the Exolife case currently does not have that built in, it’s something to keep in mind before purchasing!
As far as my personal overall opinions on the Exolife case, I think everything is well designed and works just as it should. The case fits well in your hand and doesn’t hinder texting or making phone calls. Another great thing is this case can take a beating and it’s going to differ all damage from the phone to just the case which the the idea of a case in the first place.
As far as recommending this for purchase, I would say that if a $90 case is in your budget this is probably a pretty good option for you. I think this would be super convenient to have on a trip, because having a dead phone after you get off an airplane sucks and everyone’s been there at one time or another, so this prevents this and for that it gets a recommendation from me to you!
My first impressions are that the packing is very well done, it looks super clean and sleek and looks very professional. It really makes you know that this iPhone Battery Pack was worth the money just by the packing.
Next, upon holding the case for the first time, I thought it felt a little light and was very slim. The site advertises the slimness and also it being very lightweight, but I didn’t expect it to be as thin as it was, so I was very impressed and happy with that, but for those of you who know my reviews, I like my products to have a little more weight to them, but that’s just my preference.
I will have the full review up by next week, so be sure to check back for that!
Now that I finally have my Verizon iPhone 4, it’s time to jailbreak this guy with Greenpois0n and a Mac! So sit down, strap in, and get ready to unveil the iPhone 4′s true potential as you jailbreak your Verizon iPhone version 4.2.6!
I haven’t kept updated in the jailbreaking community for years now, so I though that this was going to be a little more difficult then it really was. Within 15 minutes I found all the resources I needed and got my new Verizon iPhone 4 jailbroken and ready to rock!
Now, back in the day, this was absolutely not possible, it took hours and sometimes days before you could accomplish a task like this, but now-a-days it’s simple as pie! Wait, what makes pie simple? Nevermind, anyway lets just say that a child could do these steps, so follow along with the video and within the next 10 minutes your iPhone 4 on Verizon firmware 4.2.6 will be jailbroken and fully functional! ENJOY!
Today is the day! The iPhone 4 has come to Verizon at last! I’m so excited right now for this unboxing and even though the iPhone 5 is due to come out in the next couple months, I have been able to upgrade my phone since November and I’m so sick of waiting that I broke down and just went for the iPhone 4!
All things considered, I am super happy with this purchase and if you have a Verizon upgrade ready and you feel that you can’t wait another month or two for the iPhone 5 to release, I would recommend to go ahead and purchase the iPhone 4 instead. Just make sure that you keep in mind that the only main upgrades that will come about in the iPhone 5 are slight speed differences and 4g capability, so the choice is yours!
It’s that time of year again and that time is the Holidays! Can you believe that it’s December already? This is just mind-blowing to me, but anyway, the point of this article is to show you my updated room tour for the 2010 season! So without further ado, let the desk/room tour of a geeks desk/room begin!
If there is anything that you saw in the room tour that I didn’t talk about long enough, leave a comment or send me an email and ask me whatever you were wondering about that specific gadget or game and I’ll be happy to answer you and even point you in the direction as to where you can purchase one for yourself to start making your room “tour worthy” just like mine!
One more note, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! This time of year really gets me reflecting on what I’ve accomplished over the past 12 months and what my future plans are for the upcoming year and I really enjoy hearing feedback from all of you guys about what you like/dislike and any changes or suggestions you have that you would like to see implemented in the future. So again, have an awesome Holiday season and spread the Holiday spirit to everybody you see!
