I had one of the recalled Mobic (sp?) cases which had another battery and provided a lot more thickness. However that case never performed well as far as the battery went, but it sure felt nice in my hand! It cost about $60 I think, so it was a huge disappointment. Hopefully if they use the same form factor for the iPt5 as the iPhone5 then more cases will be available. But Apple and a lot of other companies are notorious for making each new model different enough to cause older cases to no longer fit. That way they get us to buy accessories as well as a new device!
