Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed I was very disappoined with my purchase. Comes with a smooth case versus rubbery case. Very slippery! Also no screen protector. I currently have the otterbox which I love. Think I'll stay with that as they missed the mark on this one

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful Product I received two cases direct from otterbox that didn't even work right out of the box and then the third case i received only worked for 5 days and then quit. Don't recommend at all

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only lasts 1 year This product only lasted 1 year before the case would not take a charge. If you can purchase it for a good price it's worth it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lasted one year now dead I got this as a gift one year ago. While the recharging capability WAS very convenient, and saved me many times that I had not charged my phone for a couple of days, after one year the case will no longer hold a charge. Even from day one, recharging was tricky. With certain combinations of case charge level and phone charge level, when plugging in the case to charge, it would continuously beep. Never figured out what caused this, and I would take the phone out of the case (very inconvenient) and charge the phone and case separately. The case is large and the battery adds considerable weight. So, overall rating is just okay. If you have need to not charge for a couple of days, then this might be okay for you, but otherwise, not worth the extra price and weight.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Charges great but... The charging part of the case works well, but the volume part does not. When I try to turn the volume up, the volume turns down. I have to turn the volume all the way down, press the up volume button at a certain angle, and then the volume will actually increase. The lower volume button is very sensitive, as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all round case I ever owned! I bought this case as my wife has one and urged me to get one. She enjoyed being able to charge her phone anywhere without plugging it in. The case is feels solid and ergonomic, it has rounded edges which feels nice in my hand. Aesthetically, it looks very slick and I often get compliments. One other thing I enjoyed was that it doesn't wear out your jeans and leave the dreaded cell phone mark on your pocket. Overall, I feel I made a wise decision purchasing the case and I recommend it to anyone with a busy lifestyle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like the case but.... I bought this a few weeks ago, I like it but the volume button is a pain to mess with like I'll try to turn it up and it turns my volume all the way down. But I'm getting the remote headphones to see if that helps. Great product :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Two Cases Failed to Work Straight from the box Two Resurgence cases in two weeks and neither worked. First one did not work at all. I was sent replacement. Replacement initially worked and would only charge my phone if I used an Apple branded wall plug. Can't charge in the car. After 2 phone re-chargings the replacement case stopped charging my phone. To get a refund, Otterbox wants me to pay $5.00 (!) and return the Resurgence charger case.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not perfect I am happy to have the case and I plan to keep it and use it for as long as it is good for but I have one major issue with it and that involves the volume buttons on the phone. The case does not interact well with these buttons. I examined it and it seems like it just is not a perfect fit such that simply squeezing on the side of the case will raise or lower the volume unintentionally. This is a problem because you have to squeeze the case to change the phone from wake mode to sleep or vice versa and it always changes the volume when I try to do that. I have to be careful not to squeeze the case when putting the phone to sleep. Also when trying to raise or lower the volume there are issues and the phone may not respond to the button being pressed or it may do the wrong thing and lower the volume when trying to raise it or vice versa. I wish it was a perfect fit but it isn't so I have to use the phone in the case with some pickiness to make sure it does what I want it to.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit the IPhone S5 properly The unit does fit the IPhone S5 but it is sticking to the volume lower button and therefore the phone is always on silence. Cannot hear work phone calls when the phone is silent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This case is great! Before I got the Resugence Battery case, my phone was constantly dying--and at the worst time. I am on call and must have access to my phone so this case was a life saver for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Extends Use The Resurgence Power case does extend my iPhone's use without recharging. I can easily make it through an entire day without recharging the phone. That's why I got this case. But it does have some negatives. The case gets extremely warm when it is recharging from a near complete discharge. It does not get so warm when it is not allowed to completely discharge. The case does not protect the screen. It only protects the edges and back. It also has a smooth finish, unlike my previous Defender case. It doesn't feel secure in my hands. The case fits the iPhone 5s very tightly. It is very hard to remove the case. Because of the case's battery, an extra long earphone adapter plug is required. The Apple earphone plugs into the adapter. I have misplaced the earplug adapter several times. OtterPond

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love my Otter Box The Resurgence Case for my I-Phone 5 is a treasure. I listen to podcasts and use my maps and my camera daily on my phone. Even though I charge it every night, I am often down to low battery warnings by evening. All I do now is press the little button on my case and it powers back up to 100%. i was worried the case would be bulky, but my phone still fits comfortably in my pocket. I am pleased that the phone and the case charge as one unit, no more carrying a separate battery charger that has to also be charged. I would and have suggested that this case is a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish, love the extra battery power. I love this case. It is stylish, sturdy, protects my phone and the extra battery power comes in handy on a daily basis. Only cons is needing the adapter cord to plug into headphones. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase. The case + the alpha glass are worth it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from High Hopes I saw this case and immediately purchased it, thinking this was a great idea and wanting a 2nd battery for my iPhone 5s. Partly it is my fault for not reading up closely on the product but I expected a backup battery that the phone would switch to when the main battery was low. 1. Backup battery is a charger that gets pretty hot. 2. Backup battery has to be manually switched over 3. If my main battery dies, I have a hard time telling if the 2nd battery has engaged when I push the button. 4. Case in itself is great, it is sleek and fits my iPhone 5s perfectly. Actually like the added weight in my pocket so I can tell its there. Like I said partly my fault for not know how it was designed to work, if it was a battery that could be swtiched over to instead of a "charging station" I would like it a lot more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My Otter Box Experience I ordered the pretty green Otter Box and felt this was going to be the best way to stay 'charged' up away from home and I had my Otter Box about four days and it over heated and stopped charging. I simply do not understand why, I read and reread the directions and did just as instructed, so I am not really pleased with the resurgent Otter Box....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great External Battery Choice I've been using this Otterbox for a couple of weeks and I like it a lot. It replaced a uNu external battery. I coupled this Otterbox with the Alpha Glass screen protector which is by far the best screen protector that I've used. I like the sleek, attractive design. About the only thing I would like to see them add is a belt holster. I'm really not a fan of placing any type of phone in my pocket.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good purchase This case is definitely not as good as it claims to be online. I have had otter boxes for years, and just decided to try the Resurgence, as my phone has been dying a lot lately. The website claims that it more than doubles the battery, but it barely gives me a full charge. It is not compatible with the iPhone lightning plug, so I have to plug it into my PC to charge my phone which is very inconvenient. And the case is so slippery, it's like talking on a bar of soap. It has slipped out of my hands multiple times because there is no traction on it. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who is a heavy user of the iPhone. I wish I would have kept my old Otter Box instead of buying this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hours of power I bought this for my teenager because I was so tired of him "forgetting" to charge his phone, and his battery would be drained by the time school let out. Then he'd be at sports practice with no way to recharge. This Resurgence case has been a godsend; fully charged, it nearly doubles the phone's battery time. And it has a sleek, attractive design. I was hesitant to order it because it is a bit expensive, but it has turned out to be worth every penny. Highly recommend for those who want to make the investment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works Well Power case is stylish and it charges the phone quickly; however, the plastic case itself is lacking in quality. The batteries get quite warm when charging the phone and the case us heavy due to the batteries. The light that shows the batteries are charging the phone is flimsy. It does what it needs to do but falls a bit short on construction and materials. Granted you are paying mostly for the batteries but I would be willing to pay a bit more and get a better quality case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have been using this OtterBox on my phone now for a couple weeks, and I have to say that I really love it! A few things that I would change about it though would be, to make a universal charger for it, like for the IPhone, or other phones. Otherwise, I only have one charger for it, and have to take it everywhere with me to charge it, when the extra battery power is used. I would also make it easier to remove from the phone, like the other OtterBoxes, and have a different headphone jack. If I don't have the one that it comes with, I can't plug in my headphones. This is not convenient. Also, the adapter plug does not connect real well. The plug sticks out too far. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value for Money Am a new user (2 months plus ) of the OtterBox Resurgence case. I can say it is the best so far compared to other brands in d market. It charges and syncs phone via just a SINGLE USB cable. Cable is solid strong and firmly adherent to iPhone. Looking for a back-up charger and a firm protector for your cute iPhone 5 OR 6, like a 2 in 1, I must say this is a good pick. I love the bulky feel yet preserving its aesthetic look. Phone case may be warm to touch while on Lithium charge, but thats fine for a couple of mins. Speakers are crispy clear, side buttons are touch sensitive and dirts don't lurk around crevices. Overall, I'ld recommend this to anyone who wants juice-on-the-go for their phones, yet preserving the user-friendliness of the iphone. Did I forget to mention the add-on 3.5mm jack,..thats so cute.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped working The main reason I purchased this was for the battery extension. It seemed like adding this to my phone made the battery drain faster. Then it worked intermittently and now it stopped working altogether. I've only been using it for approximately three months. The case itself is heavy. For the cost, this is a poor product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed This case worked great for the first three months then it just stopped working. The case looks great and protects my phone but it doesn't charge my phone anymore. If you buy this case to look great and protect you phone you won't be disappointed. If you buy this case to charge your phone, DON'T buy it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid product Solid product works as advertised. Screen protector is not included. If you use a glass screen protector the case is hard to snap closed tight. There is also a noticeable bubble under the glass at the edge, although I was able to work most of it out. The plastic variety might be thinner and fit better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost impossible to remove This case protects well but it is EXTREMELY difficult to remove so you can connect a lightening cable. I have actually hurt my fingernail trying to remove it. I have finally resorted to using a flathead screwdriver or similar tool to get it apart. The video shoes it coming apart very easily. Don't believe it. It's very hard to remove with just you hands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Power Capacity I switched to the Otter cover because I like the material it is made of; it is a no-slip plastic whereas my previous one wasn't. The problem I have with this product is the power capacity. My Otter can only charge my iPhone 5S from 20% to between 85-90%, never to a full charge. My previous back-up system could go from 20% to 100%, then again from 20% to about 40% charge. I like the majority of the features but the electrical back-up capacity falls short of my expectations.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well built but not enough A quality product but has a few shortcomings. First and foremost the lack of a faceplate leaves your phone as an accident waiting to happen. Then the texture of the body is like holding a bar of wet soap, well not as bad but this thing is slippery, I dropped it 3 or 4 times within an hour. To many times for me, to the point I took it off and went back to my other Otterbox, the one that's built like a tank. Of course the main design of the Resurgence Power Case is the built in battery, it doubles the life of a charge and if you are away from an outlet for an extended time then this is the case for you. I work out in the field and need good solid protection and the Resurgence Power Case falls short on that mark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 99.9% Perfect I love it!! The industry I work in is hard on my phone so I needed a case that would both protect and charge it. My best friend had been trying to get me to purchase an Otterbox case since I got the phone but the resurgence is exactly what. I needed. I've had no worries since I got my case and it's my favorite shade of not quite blue but not quite green!!! The only thing is that it is so difficult to remove, but I'm sure that is why it's so durable. I'll just have to star getting manicures that won't chip.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Otterbox First - Congratulations on making a great product! The product works in a every aspect advertised, so it gets 5 star ratings all the way through....well almost. The only area of improvement would be the alignment with buttons on the phone, and the ease with which the case actually fits around the iphone. As it stands, my phone is properly inserted, but sometimes when I press on the volume up button, the volume down button feels the press, and wins the competition. I then have to readjust the way I am pressing to make sure that the volume down button does not get activated.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Charging = good. Case latching = bad The latching mechanisms on this case aren't what I would expect from Otterbox. Once closed, the case is nearly impossible to open. It feels like you're going to break it when you try to pry it open. I plan on keeping the charging portion in my purse (this will be very useful), but not attaching the front cover of the case.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really great product I love this product! It's durable and charges very well. The only thing I don't like is how challenging it is to unlock the front face piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really useful case I work in a construction company as crew chief so I'm always in touch with the office via iMessage. Plus a lot of GPS and trips around the areas with bad coverage. Add Spotify before and after the job and youtube during the lunch of course... So without Resurgence my pretty new phone was dying in a few hours. And I had to charge it in the truck via cord that causes missed calls and messages. But now the phone works all day long. And the mot important - the case provides excellent protection. Which is really-really important for me. For example, the phone fell down from 20 ft. ladder in Commuter case one day and it was fine! So you can imagine, what kind of protection provides mil-certified Resurgence case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Resurgence Case!! The resurgence power case is amazing!! I always forget to charge my phone and I've only had the case for a few weeks and it's already saved me from an almost dead phone multiple times.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Protection, confusing design This is a great product in general. Very tough body, charges well. However, I couldn't figure out how to use it for the first couple days. The button on the front doesn't have a clear on/off function. It lights up according to how much power it has. That makes sense, but it's definitely not obvious. I listen to music on my phone a lot, so I'm constantly plugging in headphones, or connecting it to my stereo- You have to use the provided extension cord to connect the 1/8 in. jack for music. That works fine, if you have it with you. If not, you have to remove the case to listen to music, and removing the case is hard to do, and it comes very close to ripping my fingernails off every time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! Absolutely love this case. I haven't run out of battery in weeks. Allows for serious use during long trips (read: plane rides). Highly recommended However, I do have two caveats: 1) There is no direct protection of the screen. If this falls at the wrong angle, its most likely shattered glass everywhere. 2) Its heavy, and a bit clunky. Still, looks are good, and it does everything it's supposed to really well. Would recommend to anyone.

I did purchase the protective glass for added protection. As far as the battery goes, again couldnt be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I am quite pleased so far with this product. One small complaint is that the sides of the case scratch and mark up very easily and I have only had it about a month. The blue from my jeans pocket marks the white and doesn't come off very well. The scratches I guess are functional.... I drop it a lot. I fall asleep using it and then wake up to "BONK". Thankfully it performs exceptionally well to protect my phone. My last battery case died because I kept dropping it.... Really pleased I invested in my otterbox so far! I've also had compliments on the colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome iPhone 5s Charging Case!!! This is a very nice case for the iPhone 5s & fit perfectly. Well-constructed & works great, it keeps me from having to worry about running low on battery power when I'm out & about for long periods of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Case, Very Convenient Love this case! I very rarely have to plug my phone in to charge with the extra battery pack. Pros: Great Phone Protection Easy to charge phone and case Can update phone through your computer with the case charger cable Really there's no reason to ever need to take the case off Cons: Battery can heat up while the phone is charging from the case Takes a while to charge both the phone and the case Case is VERY difficult to take apart Overall the biggest con is the fact that the case is so difficult to open up but there's really no reason to take your phone out of the case once it's in there. Would definitely reccommend this case to a friend! It functions exactly as intended, expected, and advertised. Great job, Otter Box!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a sleek design and works nice! The new design is very sleek, although its a little heavier with the extra battery it's not bad and well worth the extra weight. I fortunately haven't dropped it since the purchase but the box indicates that it is "military" spec drop protection so I hope if I drop it that "we're" good. I battery "back-up" charges fast too so I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product but... Love this case and truly is a lifesaver. Durable, works well, charges promptly. My only little thing is that the case is difficult to take off and I always feel like I am going to break it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good battery life enhancer this case is great if you looking to extend the life of your phone battery. I found it to be large and bulky, making it unpleasant to carry. It offers not screen protection, having been an Otter Box defender user, which i do find necessary in my work/life. I also found the charging annoying, as you have to bring along the special cable to charge the case, and taking out of the case is very difficult, and seems like you'll break it each time you do so.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Utility Case I love this case because I am always on the go- it's hard to say when I will have time or an opportunity to stop and charge my phone. It's great having that security of knowing I will be able to stay mobile. I was even surprised at how thin the case is, it seems thinner than other Otterbox cases. I do worry about how warm the case gets– I don't want it to damage my phone. Another thing that can be annoying is that it seems like the case itself takes a long time to charge, although when plugged in it charges the phone first. The case is a bit heavy, but it feels sturdier and I am not uncomfortable with how heavy it is. Overall I am very happy I got this case, it has certainly saved my some time already!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Resurgence case performs as advertised This case performs as designed and advertised while being slim and attractive. It's nice having more than 2X the normal battery power, especially with my iPhone 5 which has had marginal battery life and cold sensitivity since it was new. Apple replaced the battery under an extended warranty program recently which seems to have taken care of the cold sensitivity issue but didn't noticeably improve its on-board battery performance. Thankfully the Resurgence case has bridged the gap between the Apple battery's marginal performance and what I really need for total battery performance. The only reason I didn't rate protection at 5 stars is the case doesn't come with any protection for the front of the phone. I installed a Zagg Invisishield to add some frontal protection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Real life Comparison to Mobi = Otterbox WINS ALL! I bought the Resurgence in Teal Shimmer at one of those Box Stores about an hour away from home, on a Saturday. I was leaving for Europe the next day. It didn't work! I called Otterbox and a real guy who spoke English and was based in Colorado provided me with the most excellent customer service on a Saturday afternoon! He walked me through the troubleshooting and determined that the box was indeed dead, so he arranged to send me a new one while I was in Europe. Upon further examination of the box, it was obvious that someone had already returned it to the Box Store and I had received a pre-used/pre-broken box. I tried to find another Otterbox before I left, but in the short amount of time I had and in my small town, no one had one. The local cellular phone store had Mobi's only, so I purchased one just to be sure that I would have extra battery while on vacation. I used the Mobi for four days while on vacation. The design added another 2" to the overall length of the phone and it didn't offer any added protection like the Otterbox. What's more, it only offered 80% more power. While I was in Europe, I used my cell phone on global data roaming for the maps feature - which seemed to absolutely drain my phone. On average, I was out and about for 15 hours a day. Every single day I used the Mobi recharge. Even with the Mobi, it was necessary to turn off the phone intermittently or else risk having no maps or phone all after about 10 hours of use. I received the low battery bleeping and warning every single day, and this was after a full charge was received. On day five of my two week trip, I received the Otterbox Resurgence via FedEx (which incidentally cost about as much as the Resurgence itself). I took the Mobi off the iPhone and replaced it with the Otterbox and plugged it in for a charge. The first thing I noticed about the Otterbox was that it was about 2" shorter than the Mobi, but thicker, which meant it was easier to hold onto for those selfies I was taking. It also fit in my backpack easier and didn't fall out of it's assigned pocket. For the next 9 days, the Otterbox performed fantastically! Never once did I receive a low battery signal or get bleeped at. After 15 hours of roaming, wifi and data use, the Otterbox still had enough juice to power me all the way through the day. The Resurgence stated 100% more battery power and truly came through with that representation. What's more, while walking the marble steps of a castle, my phone slipped from my hands and fell to the ground. It bounced several times and I cringed, thinking that I was now without a phone for the rest of my trip. The Otterbox had a couple little smudges on it, but the phone was unharmed and unaffected by the fall. I would absolutely recommend the Resurgence to anyone considering the purchase of a battery extending protective box. What's more, the prices between the Otterbox and the Mobi are comparable. As a consumer who's compared the two products, Otterbox surpassed the Mobi in performance and protection by leaps and bounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best charging case I have used I received my Otterbox a few weeks back and have been meaning to write a review. I was using a Mophie prior to the OtterBox and here are the main difference as I see them * Durability: Winner; OtterBox. Have dropped phone a couple of times already and unlike my Mophie no cracks or chips * Charging ability: Winner; OtterBox. Unlike my Mophie, which lost full charging capability after just a couple of months, the OtterBox at this time is the clear winner. * Recharging Ease: Winner; Mophie. The Mophie case was much easier to charge the phone using I-Phone 5 charger or standard charger. This is only an issue when you forgot to pack or bring your standard charger as many people have the Iphone 5 chargers and are willing to share. Could the OtterBox put both charging ports on the bottom of the phone so device and phone could be charged by either charger. Weight: OtterBox; Not nearly as heavy as it sits in the suit pant pocket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost there Everything about this product is almost perfect. Had to replace the cover twice and the entire package once before everything worked properly. The buttons on the side wouldn't line up. As always Otter Box backed there product up until everything worked. For some reason they changed the port to charge the battery. Instead of leaving it an iPhone port they changed it to a mini USB port. It will still connect to the computer and you can sync it no problem, but it wont be able to connect to any other of your other iPhone devices unless you take it out of the battery case. It is also very slippery. I miss the rubber coating. I'm guessing you can't use it because of the heat that is generated while it is charging the phone but it made me feel much safer about my phone with the rubber cover on it. Maybe you could add some rubber, strategically placed so at lease we could get a better grip on it. Also I don't know why I had to purchase a screen cover when I see no reason why they couldn't add one to the cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Teal and Rose for iPhone 6 PLEASE!!! Gorgeous case! Love the extra battery power. Very comfortable to talk on. I LOVE the colors! Definitely getting more complements than I have ever had with a phone case and a lot of people asking where I got it. I wish the front had protection though. The alpha glass is unforgiving and mine is crooked. If you replace your phone, you need a new alpha glass. And if you aren't very careful, you'll have a crooked cover. Please include a changable front cover for the case. And please keep the teal and rose colors when you have a Resurgence for the 6!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised, but... This works as advertised in every respect, and, especially when teamed up with Otterbox' optional Alpha Glass, offers very good protection. It does have two drawbacks. First, it is extremely difficult to put on or remove, it could probably have been engineered to offer the user a kinder and gentler experience in this way. Second, it would have been nicer if it had a Thunderbolt connection rather than a USB-mini one. Since I need a Thunderbolt charging cable for other purposes, that would cut down on the number of cables I have to carry around with me when I'm on the road. These tend to add up quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Resurgence Power Case for iPhone 5s I have been using my Resurgence case for several weeks now, and overall very satisfied. It fits well and was easy to install. The ability to recharge my phone while on the go, just by pushing a button rather than looking for an outlet makes it well worth the cost. My only criticism would be the case is a little slick, causing it to slip out of your hands. This has happened once causing the phone to fall three feet to a tile floor, but in typical Otter Box fashion, phone and case survived. All things said great product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wasted money! As stated in other reviews volume buttons do not work with this case. It constantly turns volume down while in my pocket and you have to remove the case to turn it back up which is about 10x harder than removing the defender I had on it. One of my coworkers has virtually the exact same case from another manufacturer that works much better for half the price. The only plus is that is does seem to charge pretty well but it does get pretty hot when I do it. Otter box missed with this one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent It is very nice that you don't have to lug a charger around, however if you do drop it the top comes off and the top case didn't seal completely to the bottom, I dropped my phone from the counter to the kitchen floor on accident and the button you use to recharge cracked, still works but cracked. When I use the recharge button it does cjharge "200%". For example, if my phone is on 17% it will go to 34% and stop charging she the night before I charged it completely.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Average Before I bought this one, I had previously gotten a battery case from a different company. I dropped that one (quite a bit) and it held up for the most part, only a slight crack. Then I saw Otterbox was coming out with their version, so I jumped on it and bought one the day they became available. The color was beautiful, and the design was very sleek. However, within a few days, the button you press to charge already cracked into pieces without me even dropping it once. The batter didn't last as long or even close as long as my other one. Also, the case got very hot if you used the battery to charge the phone for a bit. Overall, the design of the case was beautiful but the actual workings of the case was not what I expected. I am actually in the process of returning my case and hopefully getting a refund.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Otterbox battery case for iPhone 5 This case is well made with one exception. The buttons for the volume don't work at all or very poorly. Turning the volume down works fine, but is so sensitive if you touch it at all the volume is muted. The "volume increase" button is mostly non-functional. If I press the button and hold it hard, the volume will increase, but even that is inconsistent and it doesn't go up by one degree, but by 3, 5 or more. I either received a bad case or a design tweak is in order.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the money. The battery within the case has already stopped taking a charge. Not to mention the port for the charger is different then the one within the 5s. Frustrating due to the fact that none of us need another charger cord in the mix. Also, the plug for the head phones is set so deep in to the bottom of the case that it makes it difficult to keep the head phones plugged in or use anything other then Apple head phones.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't re-charge phone 100% I had a Mophie Charger case for my phone and when I found out that OtterBox was coming out with their own charging case I immediately wanted one. I thought that the case was going to have protection similar to their defender series cases but it's not at all. It doesn't have a screen protector. Just holding the case while using normally it presses on the volume down button and will mute your sound and ringer if you're not careful. Using the volume up button is difficult because when you press it, it simultaneously presses the volume down button because of the pressure on the case. It's very tricky to turn up the volume. I had to disable my buttons in settings so I wouldn't miss calls or notifications. And lastly, it only brings my phone to 80-90% charge from 10% and gets pretty warm in your pocket when charging is on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Resurgence for iPhone 5 The concept is great but the case is not. I have had problems getting it to charge. The cord that came with it charges sometimes and sometimes not. If you move it around and "jiggle" it, the charge begins but will just stop spontaneously. The only way to make sure it is charged is to take the case apart and charge case and phone separately.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Surprised I am greatly surprised by the lack of protection on your Resurgence Power Case for iPhone 5s. My wife and daughter have used your protective cases (non battery) for their IPhones for the past couple of years and suggested that I get one since I dropped my IPhone 5S with the Mophie Juice Pack and cracked the screen. We also have your protective cases for our Ipads and have been happy with their design and protective capabilities. I was greatly surprised when I received your power case and found that it offered no more protection than the Mophie Juice Pack. When you look at your other cases you can see that they are much more heavy duty, with higher raised lips to protect the phone and screen more effectively. Also it is much harder to take your case off the phone compared to the Mophie Juice Pack. On the positive side I like the electronics of you product compared to the Mophie. I am deeply surprised that you advertise your Resurgent case as a protective case. In my opinion you should make the resurgence case with the same protection as your other cases or stop advertising it as protect.

My Teal Shimmer really looks like Tiffany's blue- more pale turquoise then mint green. MAYBE in certain lighting it may be teal shimmer- but definitely pastel blue ;-p. Secondly, the phone has only recharged once and while processing, it became very warm near the battery portion of my phone. I hope my phone or 'pockets' don't burn me or catch on fire !!! Thirdly, I wish it had a face protector. My pockets are not all clean with dirt, dog treats,kitty fur…. Fourthly, I am going to have to get used to not having holster.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Over the Mophie I have had 3 mophie cases for my iphone 5. I was interested in the Otterbox because i always loved the protection that their cases give. After using the case for over a week, I find the back up battery DOES NOT charge double the phone's charge. However, the on/off switch is a tie with Mophies. It has not turned on by itself and it BLOWS away the Uncommon cases. button accesablility is excellent and the case has a good feel. My recommendation? Otterbox you should put a rubberized coating on the case to prevent slippage.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No Face The case comes in two pieces. It does charge and is sturdy. Be aware that there is no face film for protection that way if you prefer it. Also, I was trying to send texts with the case on and my iPhone 5s wouldn't send. When I took the case off it completed sending. It might be that the case is so thick at the bottom with the battery that it affects reception? Or is near the antenna? I only had it for part of a day so you can take my review with a grain of salt. I ended up giving it away to a friend who didn't mind the open face. I'm keeping my Otterbox Defender case instead.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Probably sending this thing back I think this is a decent case except every time I charge the phone in the case, it seems to provide less battery charging the next day. The first day or two I charged it, when I had to go to the backup charger it went to 100%. The next time it went to 93 and today it only went to 83%. Also you cant operate the volume keys through the case very well. Probably sending this back. One last thing, its a little slick and slips out of your hand unlike the other otterbox cases.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recharges like a dream This product is wonderful for fixing your low battery issues. The case needs some work when it comes to vibration mode as it rattles pretty loud if on a hard surface only. The case can be scratched easily but still offers that otterbox protection that gives me piece of mind that My phone will survive being dropped.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problem with plug in Standard Headphones set I tried to plug in the standard headphone set of the iiPhone 5 into the extension. It doesn't plug in completely and therefore the steering via the switch one the Headset. It seems that the extension-socket is to short. By the way I also miss a transparent front cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it The resurgence is very protective and keeps my battery twice the power. It's a little heavy weight but besides that I also like that the battery shuts off automatically when it reaches 100%.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excited about new rechargable case My new Resurgence case arrived today. This case is exactly what I've been looking for, for my on-the-go lifestyle. The case arrived with a 75% charge so it was easy to plug it in and go. I did have some difficulty with the release snaps on the case. I broke a nail trying to get it open. I like to look of the case. I was dreading something big and bulky, but it was pleasantly slim, considering that it does have a battery attached. The battery definitely makes my phone heavier, but I'm sure I'll adjust. So far, I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Produt The hardest part was getting the other cover off. after that experience everything was easy. So far my phone's battery has lasted almost four days without charging. Love the color and the case texture is great, so smooth, just love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent case with extra power. This case is a big improvement over the previous extended battery case. The slimmer design is much easier to carry than the bulkier predecessor. Also the software and control over the charging really helps manage battery use. This one also does not conflict with my Toyota Prius Entune software for data use of the apps on the car. I am very pleased with this case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Resurgence Power Case The resurgence power case is simply awesome. Easy to use and set up. The sleek and very smooth design makes it easy to slide my iPhone 5 in & out of my back pocket. The USB cord charges both the phone and power case. The charging automatically stops when both the phone and power case is charged to 100%. I am very happy with this purchase and won't have to worry about battery power on long days when I am not able to re-charge my phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Resurgence Power Case I have found that it work great on my phone, good solid drop protection, great rapid recharge capabilities. Would have like to see screen protector on the case but this thing work better than another brands power case I have used in the past. Nice job by Otter Box for sure

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Case Just got my case in yesterday and I love the built in battery feature and the overall design of the case. The case seems durable; however, the only thing I don't like is that is doesn't have a built-in screen protector. For the price tag you think at least one of the otterbox stand alone screen protectors would be included. Guess I will be looking for a screen protector tonight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Protection, but not for the screen I have just received the Resurgence Power Case, at first glance I was like "WOW", this looks great, and feels nice in your hand. But after I got over the WOW factor, I really stated to look at it. the first thing I notice was there is no screen protection. so this leaves the screen opened to be scratch by you keys in you pocket, so now I have to go and buy a screen protector. which a good one is going to cost you at least $25-$30 additional. Second thing I noticed, was the charging port, Mini USB not the lighting port. Now you have to replace all the cables you have for your phone. like me, I have one in my home, my office and my car. I Get this is suppose to keep your battery charged, but there will be a time that you will forget you used the back-up and didn't charge the phone or the Resurgence pack the night before. Over all I still like it, but I have to remember to keep it charged or at least keep a spare cable with me. I will still recommend this to my friends and co-workers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great power and protection case I love the Resurgence case for the Iphone 5/5s. Very durable and worth the price for a battery case. Easy to hold but a little slippery but i can deal with that. Also you can use the case to sync with Itunes as well. Can charge up the Iphone in minutes. Thanks Otterbox for such great products.
