We bought several Armor cases for our Iphones in late January. Within two months, the rubber parts started showing wear. One just around the hinges, but the two that are mainly carried in pockets, are looking very ragged 4 months later.
The worst part though- is that the Armor is listed as waterproof on the website. That was proven VERY wrong this weekend. While out with the family, my phone was set down (fully encased and with all ports closed) on a chair near the water's edge of a local lake. The chair blew over with the wind, and the phone fell just on the edge of water, maybe half submerged by an inch of water. We immediately took it out of the case, and it "seemed" pretty dry inside, but we decided to leave it in a bag of rice for several days anyway to be sure. Well, when we plugged it in to charge today, it did power on, but with a LOT of obvious water damage. I guess I will be getting a new phone, and will NOT be buying any case from Otterbox.
Cons: Not durable, not water resistant, heavy, hard to hear when on a call, quiets the ringtone makes hard to hear

 iPhone 4/4S Armor Series Case

The Armor Series iPhone 4/4S waterproof case can handle 30 minutes in 6.6 ft of water, 10 ft drop, allow zero entry of dust and sustain 2 tons of crushing force. It’s the toughest case ever built.

I hoped the armor would be better than the defender, but so far not great. Sound quality is bad, I find myself taking the case off for conversations. That kind of defeats the purpose. ALso after only a few weeks of use, the rubber coating is starting to flake off near the hinges. Guess I need to find a new brand. Disappointed- the defender cases we tried all went bad in the rubber part (stretched out and tearing) within months.

what attachment do I need to charge my phone while still in the armor case?

I have the small 18pin to lightning and the longer cabled one and neither will fit.
my original cord from Apple fits fine but not any aftermarket ones I have tried
