Really? What an idiotic way to do it. If they were smart, this would completely replace the stock battery + case. Sure, they'd need to have an antenna in there but that's incredibly cheap. This would allow it to be thinner and lighter-weight, or have more battery capacity in there. I thought that was the entire point of this case! *boggled*SemiAutoAZ said:From some of the videos I've seen, it looks like where the wires and connector are stored. It basically has a built in micro usb cable that will plug in to your phone. It will charge your phone first when you plug your charger into the case and then the case battery.
Im just guessing that thats where all the microusb connectors and power source components are stored... probably doubles as a nice place to grip or something.
You don't totally lose the kickstand, check out the last pic on the site. It's actually a pretty neat implementation. Though personally I use kickstand more in portrait mode and that doesn't really look like it would be stable with that pic.Agt Studly said:you lose the kickstand thats a bummer
I hav both.. the power skin is ultra fat and looks like crap because it is so big.. the extended oem is fat but not too bad and still looks decent.. both supply lots of extra power. I would go with the oem extended because it looks much better."cargo said:Did you ever get your powerskin? I'm trying to decide between this and an extended battery but there are almost no reviews of the thunderbolt powerskin.
/agreedopediculous said:Here's what I suggest and what I do. Buy another standard battery or the slightly extended on that's same size and buy the charger for just the battery. The charger Verizon sells now for $5! Battery $39. Do the math. Carry another battery that takes 15 seconds to swap and u can still use any case, still use kick stand and still have 2x battery with the only exception of 15 seconds to swap. Or you could spend more $, lose the kickstand and have a dumb bulky looking for that costs more. Its not rocket science people!
