    I have been using this case for several days now, and I can report that it is a very well made product. The case is surprisingly easy to slip onto the phone, but feels secure once in place. It adds bulk, but no more than my 2 piece heavy duty case that I had been using. The biggest difference is that it does add a bit of weight, although it is quite manageable. I normally take my phone off of the charger at 6:30a.m. and put it back on around 11p.m. with about 15% charge left. While using the Zerolemon battery pack I managed to make it from 6:30 in the morning on a Monday all the way until noon on Wednesday. A full 55.5 hours without plugging in! I may not use this case every single day with the added weight, but is definitely something that I will be using on travel days, and long weekends. It has more battery power, and the case offers significantly more protection than the much more expensive competition. I would definitely recommend this product to those that are looking for more power when you are not near an outlet.

    I don't remember exactly, but it was roughly 11 hours. And keep in mind that I have nothing disabled, location data and WiFi on at all times. I did that for testing purposes, with location on power save, and a few other tweaks, that could be extended. I see a lot of reports on here from folks who get better battery life than I do, so there may be many extend that even farther than I did

    I got this thing today. It is very thick. Compared to the mophie the capacity is 1,000 mAh more. The mophie has some advantages in that it is a little thinner, lighter and tighter fit. The Zero lemon has a larger battery. It is also about 1/3 the cost. For daily use it is not practical in my opinion. But for those times where an outlet is not available this will be a good thing to have around.

    I've decided to just use my PowerCore+ from Anker. Gave up on my Mophie case, I still use it if I need the extra protection and juice.

    Just received it today. It's definitely thick, but I already like it better than any Mophie I have used. I actually feel as though if I were to drop it that my phone would be protected. the s-pen doesn't come out as easily. I want to try Samsung Pay with it. Maybe tomorrow, but I don't know if stores are going to be open on Christmas.

    I have both the Mophie and Zerolemon. I like both but do prefer the Mophie for its better desgn. It is not as bulky as the Zerolemon. I think both cases would provide good protection. I use the Zerolemon for extended trips where outlets are not always available. Once the phone and battery pack are fully charged i can go 2-3 days. With the Mophie it is more like a day and a half tops.

    On the fence about the Zero lemon case. I like the battery life and I actually like the feel of the TPU. It is thick and heavy. I did use Samsung Pay effectively with the case on. And taking pictures was no problem.

    There's a couple on eBay. Literally two.

    What was the Amazon retail on these?

    Can you still charge the phone and zero lemon wirelessly? Do both batteries charge at once or is the Sammy battery basically not used?

    Just got it myself. I love the capacity, but the case itself feels a little flimsy. Great pricepoint though.

    I'm weird in that I like bulky cases. So I got a little excited that it reminded me of my old Otterbox days.

    Anyone else have the same concern as me about how a battery case works?

    I received the 3500mAH ZeroLemon case a few days ago, and I’m not really happy with how it works. I think the quality is excellent and ZeroLemon stuff is always rock solid with great support. So this is not a knock on ZeroLemon.

    But this is my first battery case, and now I’m realizing they don’t work how I expected (shame on me for not doing my homework).

    I don’t like that when charging, it pegs the phone’s internal battery at 100% charge LONG before the external battery comes close to reaching 100%. I wanted the option to charge the external battery first (or the option to charge internal battery first) without having to remove the case each time. I thought maybe there would be a switch somewhere to select which battery gets charged first (doh).

    For the sealed battery in the Note 5 I generally try to charge from 30% to 90% most of the time, and to minimize charge cycles in order to maximize its life (this phone is not a lease). I was hoping a battery case would help me do that, but it’s not really working out. No biggie I guess, and I'm definitely over thinking it. I suppose the best approach is not to worry about preserving the life of the internal battery, and take it to 100% whenever you get the chance. And this ZeroLemon case does give some extra juice to get you through the day. ( hope I picked an okay thread for this post)

    Hi, this is the 3500 mah you are referring to? I am asking because I am waiting for the 8500 mah and did not see it available anywhere yet. Thanks!

    Referring to 3500mah version, I should have been more clear. By the way, when I get on androidcentral site from my windows laptop, it seems like my browser is getting attacked and its super slow. Just me?
