Here's the differences:
- Advertised depth dropped from 0.27 inches to 0.20 inches.
- The soft touch rubber feels great in the hand, a welcome change from the cheap plastic on the Tumi mod.
- The mod weight feels about 30-50% lighter than the Tumi wireless battery back. There's no wireless charging on this moto battery pack, but the added thickness of the Tumi mod made it awkward and clumsy to use on stand-up wireless charging docks anyway.
- Battery life indicator button uses 4 white LEDs to indicate how much life you have left. The Tumi mod used one light with colors, just enough to know if the battery mod is dead, but not if it's 50% charged.
If you haven't bought a battery pack for your Moto Z, this is the one if you're on the fence and you're not too heavy of a user. If you bought a Tumi pack like I did, this is a huge upgrade just on thickness, weight, and feel alone. For me, it's enough to be a daily driver moto mod and It's currently installed indefinitely on my phone until something better or more convenient comes out (maybe the wireless charging shell?).
There's also the Motorola Turbo Power Pack that Motorola advertises on their site - you'll know if you need that, so skip this power pack if you're a heavy user (gaming all day, need ridiculous SOT, need to charge battery pack quickly, regularly burn through phone's internal battery in 2-3 hours).
I got this when I upgraded to the Z2 Force, and it has been the perfect complement. I get nearly 5000 mAh of combined battery, which means the phone far exceeds the life of my LG G6 or iPhone 7 Plus. I drive it hard with transit apps, Google searches, and navigation, and I've had a hard time getting the phone to 50% at the end of the day. Under my normal day-to-day usage, I can easily hit two days of battery life.
It's true that it doesn't turbocharge, but when I throw it on the charger at night, I have hours to spare to let it do its thing. An extra $30 premium for TurboCharging didn't really make sense for me.
Best of all, I feel like the weight in my hand with this Mod feels about as heavy as the iPhone 7 Plus. I can't one-hand my whole day, but it's definitely more elegant than a Mophie case.
As you can see, the main reason I bought this was to provide a better back for the phone. But the addition of the extra battery power makes this Mod a wonderful accessory at a very reasonable price. My phone now has the equivalent of a 5200 Mha battery, enough to last me 2 days based on my usage. Attachment to the phone is fast and easy (as is detachment). The battery in this mod acts as a charger for the phone's battery, much as external battery chargers work. There are two settings. One will have this battery charge the phone's battery all the time - once the mod battery is depleted, the phone's battery will operate on its own. The other setting is to let the phone's battery run down to 80%, then the mod battery will begin charging the phone battery. This latter setting is said to be more efficient, and that is the one I use.
Overall, this is an inexpensive but valuable mod you can add to your Moto Z phone.
The lack of turbo charge on this battery isn't that big of a deal. You will get through a whole day with this battery case but I was surprised at how slowly it recharged. No issues with it keeping my phone's battery at 100%, and the first night the case battery only dropped about 2% while I was sleeping.
I have mixed feelings about the indicator lights. I'm not sure what they were thinking by putting the lights on the INSIDE of the battery case but since the remaining battery power is displayed when you swipe down on your screen I don't mind. I still feel they should have added the lights to the outside like I have seen with other battery cases.
Overall a good battery case if you aren't looking to drop $80+ on the other options.
