At outfitYOURS.com we strive to find the best products to complement your Apple goodies. Battery cases are no different. We recently added Mophie to the store because they make the best battery cases on the market. The Mophie Juice Pack is legendary in the iPhone battery world. We also carry the Incase Battery Snap Case. I thought we could do a little comparo on the different types of cases for the iPhone 4 so that you can make an informed decision and pick the battery case that is right for you.
P.S. Every case listed below works for the Verizon and AT&T iPhone 4.

The Juice Pack Plus also features a led indicator to show how much “juice” is left. The Juice Pack also features a rubberized band that runs the perimiter of the case to protect from drops and bumps.

Incase Snap Battery Case for iPhone 4 – $59
The Incase Snap Battery Cases claim to fame is that it is the thinnest battery case on the market.

The Snap Case has a 900 mAh capacity but still provides some nice additional use. This case has a LED indicator to show levels. It also is made so that that it can sync and charge while still in the case. The Snap Case is for road warriors that want to add minimal bulk to the phone.
