Lenmar Meridian Unboxing Photos
The retail box of this case has the following contents:
- Lenmar Meridian Case for iPhone 5/5s with 2,300mAh Battery
- 3.5mm extension
- Micro USB cable
The case has a semi-matte finish and tapered side bezels. At first glance, you might mistaken it as Mophie Juice Pack Air for iPhone 5, but it looks much sleeker.
Its overall design and installation mechanism is similar to Mophie Juice Pack for iPhone 4. Simply slide down the iPhone 5/5s from the top until the lightning port latches on to the connector that is built in to the case. I find that a rather easier installation process than the Mophie’s for the iPhone 5.
Lenmar Meridian is packed with a 2,300mAh battery – enough to power up your phone for 1.5 times more. An LED current charge indication light, can be found at the back of the case. It looks super cool on the red variant of the case.
The color of the LED light changes based on the remaining power on the case. (Green = fully charged/full; blue = charging/90% to 25%; red less than 25% charge)
