I have this habit of forgetting iPhone chargers and my Mophie battery pack whenever I leave town. This trip is no different. And given that I am using WiFi to check in, get emails and send iMessages, the iPhone 5 battery isn’t lasting as long. So I needed a Mophie and of course I went to the Apple store.
Now this isn’t the biggest Apple store in the world. That is in Shanghai. The Amsterdam Apple store which opened on March 3, 2012 is the largest in terms on items displayed. I took some photos (below) of the store. It is a spectacular store, lit by natural light that streams from windows and a massive skylight. It is in middle of a busy tourist area and as a result sees a lot of foot traffic. It is impressive not by its architecture but by the warmth of the staff and a massive communal area where you can wait for Genius Bar appointments or trying out other devices. And wifi is fantastic too. I think we need one of these in San Francisco too 🙂

This is a really nice store !
And yes, iPhone 5 has a very low battery 🙁 Everyday I have to charge it, just as my 2 years old iPhone 4. Thanks for the info about Mophie.
Why does WiFi drain your batter faster? I see the exact opposite with my phone. When on WiFi I can keep it running for days. As soon as I switch to 3G/LTE it begins to dive more quickly.
Will, I find just the opposite with my HTC Incredible 4G. Battery life seems to drain quicker with WiFi on… and holds steady when on 4G/LTE while not using WiFi. I ONLY turn WiFi and Bluetooth on when I need them; the 2 biggest drainers for me.
Om, Is there an equivalent to the Morphie for an HTC Incredible 4G that you’d recommend? (I converted from iPhone as Apple/AT&T Wireless lost me 2 years ago. HTC and other competitors had features iPhone just didn’t have, yet.) I’m doing some Google searching. My other thought is to order a couple extra batteries from Overstock.com. Huh… just learned that there seems to be other battery options than just the 1700 mAh option; such as an extended 2150 mAh (I wonder if that’s the largest that will fit in there?) http://www.overstock.com/search?keywords=battery+htc+incredible+4g&SearchType=Header
Thank you for your time, Mr. Malik.
