This is the one I got:

I'm loving the case (LeNu Plus) as well. They had other cases to choose from but this was a nice mix of protection without adding too much bulk.

Skinit has a huge selection of designs and other cases to choose from. They have the design available for the iPhone 4/4S and Galaxy S3.

No problem, I just got the 5 and the case feels really solid on it.

You think they'd update their website though and take out the 'ol Zach designs haha

I have the 4s and even though I love it, the battery life leaves something to be desired.

There's a lot of factors that go into how long your battery lasts:

-Brightness
-Wifi and Bluetooth on/off
-Notifications
-Push/Fetch e-mails
-Location Services

If you lower or turn off some of these, you should see a fair increase in your battery life. Admittedly, my 5 hasn't been the best in terms of battery life, but I'm hoping a few charging cycles will help it.

Oh yes, I've turned and toggled quite a few things with which have helped tremendously. The worst is if there is no signal. I swear it drops 20% in fifteen minutes.

This. I definitely think that a phone constantly searching for a signal or attempting to maintain a good one (3G or LTE) in a bad coverage area is a huge factor on the battery.

It's funny because I've read that LTE actually saves battery when using data, but when it tries to maintain or find a signal the battery takes a big hit.

That's because its searching for a signal.

If you had an Android, you could root and change the scan intervals...

I bought myself one of those Mophie self-charging cases. Do not purchase. The thing was great for about a month. Its big and protects your phone but at the sacrifice of its functionality. Drop it once and it never works again.

Yeah, I've heard charging cases aren't the best in terms of protection.

I don't know how dependable these are, but maybe you could look into them since it's portable and you can plug it into any USB port/charger:

I have the 5, I can't wait till these guys come out with this. They made a kickstarter and surpassed their goal in December, so I'm hoping they start shipping soon.

I never mentioned what phone I have. And I included a sarcasm tag. And I wasn't really even preachy about it this time. I like the iPhone/iPad for most people, they're easy as **** to use.

Also, don't forget blue boy, I can still thread ban you...
