@shahnm This is going to be very tough to keep in my refrigerator.
If I buy this, it will be something that stays attached to my phone, as that is how it is designed to be used.
If I take the phone out of the refrigerator during the day, then the battery will only be refrigerated for seven or eight hours per day.
But if I instead leave it in the refrigerator, then I will need to completely empty my fridge, shelves and all, so I can fit in when I want to use the phone. So far, so good.
I will need to set up some sort of open-loop breathing system to bring in fresh air without letting the cooled air out. Means drilling the walls of the fridge, some hosing, a mask of some sort, a fan, and an alarm if the fan stops. A hassle, but I can do all that.
One more problem will need to be addressed - my refrigerator, like most home refrigerators, is a metal box. No radio waves will penetrate the fridge at all! So I’ll need to get a cell booster that has a wired antenna, and run that into the fridge to get signal in the refrigerator.
OK, that is a lot of work, and a noticeable amount of money. Maybe I don’t need this after all. Or do you think it will be OK to not keep it in my refrigerator?
@cengland0 What you rocking? I’ve got a OnePlus 3 and it is everything I need right now. It’s a shame the company is an asshole, but I am 8 months from having it two years and it looks like I wont need to upgrade for another 1.5 years at least.
@grimblegromble I’m using the 64GB Samsung Note 8 with an extra 256 GB Samsung U3 Micro SD Card in the tray. If only Apple would allow Micro SD Cards but nope, they want to charge a lot more for a little bit of storage space.
@ThatsHeadly I have an iPhone 5 that I use to make reservations at my gym. I’m typing this on an iPad Pro 12.9”. But my main phone is an Android and I definitely like Android better. I would call myself an Android fanboy.
@cengland0 IOS 11 update killed a couple of my favorite apps and is generally getting on my nerves. I have been looking at switching to Republic Wireless. Anyone have experience with them and the phones available?
My iPhone 6 is pitiful; it can’t answer the phone half the time. It’s ringing and ringing and I’m banging away on the screen swiping this way and that and it’s just laughing at me. I’m just waiting for it to die so I can replace it with Android.
@uwacn My 6s plus got so bad, it was shutting down every half hour. I took it to the local Best Buy for the $29 Apple battery replacement program (no Apple Store here, but BB is an authorized Apple repair place.) Turns out Apple is so far behind with the batteries, they’re replacing the entire phone. (Same model, just new). If you’re having issues, might be worth it to book a repair on the Apple support page.
@uwacn my iPhone7 decided to stop ringing completely even with volume used all the way up and made sure the lock wasn’t on and the sound quality in calls were so bad, I had to put it on speaker just so I could hear the caller.
That along with no 3.5mm in the iPhone X convinced me to switch to Galaxy 8 after using iPhone since iPhone 2
@Mescolito yep, this happened to me too. Went into the Apple store to run diagnostics, they put the battery on order. Two weeks later I got notice that my replacement part was ready but they just gave me another phone for $29.
What would happen if casemate kickstarters used a $10 coupon code today? Would we lose the $1 that is left over or would we get a credit of $1. Would one of our coupons be left with a $1 balance? Just curious for future purchases because I’m not interested in today’s offering but I can see a potential of this happening again with something I might want.
@dave Thanks. That’s what I figured but I was hopeful that I wouldn’t lose the extra dollar. Don’t worry though, I’ll always find something to use it on. I did buy some items for $22 the other day (twice) and forgot to use my coupon. I’ll probably do that a couple more times before I remember.
you seriously want a case that can charge your phone consider buying a Morphie Case you get a sturdy case and the battery pack in the case can charge your phone from 2% to around 90% if you’ve charged the case completely.
Only $30 on eBay & Consider getting the dock too so Yip just put the phone in the cradle instead of looking for your cords.
But be forewarned, With the Morohie Case you’ll be switching to Micro-USB foryiyr charging cables instead of iPhone cords.
@rprussell I think the storage hole is also the port for charging the case. If at the end of the day you want to charge both the phone and the case, there is no place to store the unique Pogo pin to Lightning adapter.
If I were to buy this, I would glue a leash to connect the adapter to the case. Just a few inches of string would give me months of use before a glue joint broke and I permanently lost the adapter.
@Sardinicus Sure it does. The physical size of the 6 Plus permits a larger physical battery. Same deal with the internal batteries. The 6 has a 1810mah battery while the 6 Plus has a 2900mah battery. This is common with most electronics which offer large and small sizes of the same products. From smart watches to smart phones.
In a world of endless cheap power banks, why would you commit this bulk to your phone for 2000mAh? Why not just get a power bank? A keychain power bank is 1400mAh larger at 3400mAh. Also, why not just get a real phone that doesn’t require a daily power bank?
@narfcake This is true I suppose. I’ve been trapped at home this week which tends to make me forget places like Five Below exist. Anyway, the order’s made and I don’t really regret it so everything’s fine.
@capitalist@toddlamp After I managed to get the whole thing fully charged the first time, it seemed to sort itself out. I pretty much just charge the phone now, and the case hangs out waiting for an emergency. When I’ve had to charge the case, this problem hasn’t recurred.
Mine arrived yesterday. Love the feel of it, doesn’t make the phone feel any bulkier than my old case. However, if if falls asleep, it stops charging. Have to disconnect and reconnect to make it start again. Super weird to have the battery plugged into the wall and the case plugged into the battery and wake up this morning with 10% battery…
Last week I sent message that my cases didn’t fit my iphone6’s and asked whether you had the proper cases for iphone6’s or how did I arrange for a refund. I haven’t had any reponse yet and was wondering when I could expect a response.
