Just got a Mophie Juice Pack Pro for my 4s, used, off eBay; no instructions. I fully charged both separately before I put them together. My two questions:

1. What's the best way to use: Run the phone battery down, then turn on the Mophie, or turn on the Mophie from the beginning and draw both down together?

2. If I leave the phone in the Mophie and charge the Mophie, does that charge the phone too, or do I need to charge both separately?

Thanks in advance.

1. Either way is fine. It's personal preference. If you have the Mophie on, it will not drain both at once. It will completely drain the Mophie and then start using the iPhone's battery.

2. It will charge both.

I always ran the iPhone near dead and then switched on the battery case. That way when I got to power, I charged using the case's charger which brought the phone back to 100%.

It will bring the phone back to 100% either way, but that's how I used my Mophie case as well when I had one for the 3GS.
