I bought this to replace a defective base from another manufacturer, and I've been satisfied with it so far. The battery life is okay, a few hours or so, but more than adequate for moving from room to room without rebooting - you might prefer another model if you need long listening sessions away from electric outlets. I've read some reviews questioning the value of these given the Mini's low price, but for my purposes 1 Mini with a battery is way better than 2 plugged into outlets.
I really like the design. Half of the top plastic "collar" just slides off with a click release, you slide the Mini in and push on to the internal USB connector, then click the collar back on. The Mini is held securely, no fuss, but easily removed should that be necessary, none the worse for wear. Shouldn't need to as long as the battery lasts, since this case includes an access port to the mic mute switch (big plus for me). The always-on LED charge indicator lights up front are clearly visible but not bright enough to cause any bother. What you can't judge from photos is build quality, and this has a nice solid feel and well finished appearance.
