appleposts.com – The smart battery case is engineered specifically for iPhone 6S and iPhone 6 to give you even longer battery life and protection.
The soft microfiber lining on the inside helps protect your iPhone, while the soft elastomer hinge design makes it easy to put the case on and take it off again. On the outside, the silky, soft-touch finish of the silicone exterior feels great in your hand.
This is the first fully integrated battery case made by Apple and it works very well. I’ve used the Mophie battery case unit before and found it rigid, heavy, required an headphone converter cord and prevented me from using the standard lightning connector.
Apple’s new one piece case keeps the standard lightning connector provides a wide headphone hole and adds the least amount of bulk due to the silicon case and design. I’m a major podcast listener, Facebook and Google maps user with several email accounts constantly downloading email and I could barely get through 5-6 hours on my full charged iphone 6. With both Apple’s new battery case charged and my charged iphone 6 I’m still at 100% by late afternoon and only at 80% at the end of the night. There are many fan boys who previously reviewed this product without actually using it 🙂 complaint based on photos and spec sheets, the hump, the small battery size, lack of an LED flashlight and on/off switch. Apple has created an elegant solution that integrates the battery management within the OS. I do not miss LED indicator lights. Lastly, I have no issues with the “hump’ it serves a great purpose on wet bar as moisture does not get between the phone and case, and it makes it easier to pick up on a flat surface. I’ve had no issues with the extra size and throwing into a jeans pocket, it does pick up lint however easily brushed off.
This is by far the best charging case on the market. I have tried the Mophie Power Packs, the Anker ones, the Life Proof ones, and none of them have had the form factor or the ease of use that this case has. I am lucky enough that my headphones fit perfectly without the need for an extension cable. The ability to charge with just a lightning cable is incredibly convenient. Something I have noticed with this case is that it charges both the battery and the case at the same time, so neither one is left out when hooked up to a wall charger. My Miphie case that I used to have was so much fatter than this one it felt like I was lugging around a brick in my pocket. This case is actually very light and slim.
I have been using the case all day with pretty moderate use (watching YouTube, texting, checking emails) and right now my phone is at 100% and the case is still at 53%. I was able to very easily access that information with a swipe down from the top as the battery level of the case is implemented into iOS in Notification Center.
I would recommend this case to anyone that is tired of bringing around external chargers and have been longing for more battery life from their iPhone. The other charging cases on the market just do not compete with the usability of this case or the way it looks and feels.
