I've only tried the Maxboost cases and they both lower the signal. Are the ones that don't cover the upper portion of the phone any better vs the ones that cover the whole phone?

To answer the question on the subject line....No, not all cases affect battery life. I suppose cases that decrease signal do indirectly by having the phone constantly search for signal.

No. I've had two Mophie juice packs and neither degraded the signal strength.
