At first, I thought I wouldn't like the Otterbox Defender. I had it on my old 3GS and stopped using it after some time because of the bulky size and the belt clip's occasionally faulty nature. I never read instructions, so I only discovered the stand inside this thing after a couple of days. Removing the cover for charging is really no big deal for me since I'm usually in the car when I charge. I wish taking off the main cover and snapping it on the back side while using iPad was less cumbersome, but it's a good system overall. It's certainly not a perfect case, but I haven't switched back to my incase portfolio style case since the day I got the Otterbox.
