Got a 6,000 mAh dual-USB mophie juicepack powerstation duo at the Apple Store today to replace my New Trent. Mophie's are more expensive, but I wanted to switch since I haven't had very good luck with New Trents. After about a year, they start acting up. My first one is really finicky with charging and my second one started making a weird buzzing sound so I threw it away to be safe.

LifeProof case w/belt clip.
I'm a huge fan but I tend to wear out the "clip" part on the 4/4S model belt clip. I wish they had re-engineered that model with the iPhone 5 model. The only weakness in that system that I've found.

ELM327 OBD2 BLuetooth interface. Gives me a lot of info from the cars ECU. Also helps me find out what's wrong with the car if the Engine light indicator is displayed. It also can be used with different apps for iOS and Adroid.

That thing can't hold a charge huh?

I'm kidding, I'm kidding. Take your spam hat off I'm only kidding. I looked at one the other day.

Actually, the reason I got it was because the HTC One charges very slowly. I think HTC disabled the quick-charge flag on the battery because it's a sealed system like the iPhone and they want to preserve the battery as much as possible.

Naps I had the same problem with the HTC One X and now with the Galaxy S3 - they charge very slowly and drain rather quickly.

Did you ever have a problem with picture texts/MMS occasionally arriving in unreadably low resolution and with a play button as if it were a video? His One has done that twice with pics I have sent. They were fine when I resent them later.
