    Has anyone purchased any cases or even the power jacket from Brando.com. I've always liked the GSIII & Note II flip cover case and I've pulled the trigger on the buying one for my L920(my L920 is red and I bought a black flip cover case). I can't wait for the review for the power jacket, did anyone buy one?

    Nope. It looks really cool and I love the idea of extra battery, but I'm not sure I can deal with covering up the 920's sexy body, seems like making a naked Jessica Alba wear a burqua, and not sure I want the bulk. Also I'm pretty satisfied with my battery life, very rarely do I run low on juice. I haven't really had any of the "battery issues" others are complaining of.

    All that said, I'm glad to see nice accessory options like this available for the Nokia Lumia's.

    I think it may be good of you plan on being out the door early working late and don't like the idea of chargers everywhere.my charging tendencies are not consistent so I don't know how much of a benefit it would be for me, I'm guessing little to none. I like the idea but doubt it would be a huge advantage. I'm very happy to see accessories though.

    So little update on my purchase...its been 6 days since my purchase and its still pending.
    They says shipping to the US/Canada can take 7-20 days, so I hope the whole transaction will be no more then 20 days.

    I haven't got any update either. My payment went through, but I didn't even get a confirmation email. Paypal gives up to 45 days if there is a dispute, but I sent Brando a message yesterday about my order (no response).

    Will buying one of these hurt the battery life of a phone?

    I assume that this thing continually charging the phone from 99-100% may impact the phone's life?
