Doing my duty here and letting you know that if you bought a Rocketfish RF-KL12 Mobile Battery Case for the iPhone 3G/3GS from Best Buy between April 2010 through about September 2011 then you’d better stop using it as it could catch fire! I for one wouldn’t be too happy if my phone case burst into flames…
