Review: uNu DX Protective Battery Case for iPhone 5

Review: uNu DX Protective Battery Case for iPhone 5:


We did run a battery test with DX to ensure there were no differences in battery performance between the two cases. In our testing of Meridian, it was able to provide a 99% recharge to a fully depleted iPhone 5. Under the same conditions, DX actually provided 105%. Although somewhat higher, the results are certainly in the same ballpark; it’s impossible to tell if there is more advanced circuitry, or the conditions were just a bit different.…

I have been very pleased with my Unu and it has been a lifesaver on extended trips away from a power outlet.

Over at the Daring Fireball blog John Gruber has an update on his review of the Richard Solo iPhone battery charger. The 1800 model has a bit nicer design, a locking mechanism for connection to the iPhone, and more power so it can fully recharge the iPhone.
