    I never heard of it until this post.

    Two reviews I just found were very positive although suggesting the kickstand was not that good.

    Wow, seems pretty nice if it works as advertised. I'm usually good for 12-15 hours on my Z30, but when on the plane I often POWER use and play a few games. I've had the Blackberry 2100 mobile charger now for a few months now and definitely recommend it. Probably a little less practical but it does add several hours of battery life when you need it.

    I've used one for z10, it was pretty handy on long trips. But for z30 never needed one as I get almost all day even when the Internet is turned on all the way.

    I have one. I use it once in a great while. I like a different case I'm using better. But if for some reason you're going to be without an outlet for a long long time these are nice because it doesn't take up extra space. You don't have to carry an extra battery pack to plug in. It's all right there.

    They're good,they can be useful if you're needing extra long power over time.

    The price does seem reasonable. So, they shaped a battery in the form of a rear case for the Z30 (and other phones from what I see). It could be good when I head to Europe this summer. Although will probably have data/phone off much of the time and not need juice.

    Yes, it does have value especially for the z10, but I may buy for both just in case lol

    You are tempting me. It might also prove useful for a trip to remote Utah/Arizona where cell service is spotty and the phone burns up the battery looking for signal.

    There are a few threads on the brando power jacket/case already.

    A power bank is also a good alternative if you really dislike the knub or added bulkiness

    Well, I do have a couple of "battery packs" for the Z10 which could be used but using these power bank type of devices can be a bit awkward since they are attached by a cable and holding them together can be a challenge. But having them, is what holds me back - more STUFF!!!!
