    Dead at 14 months

    Nothing else to say, I loved it right up until month 14 when it became worthless.

    Silicone outer coating peels away like crazy

    While the battery works just fine, the grippy silicone coating is not durable at all, it peels at the corners first, then like a fast growing cancer, peels and tears appear all over the case. Looks terrible. I'm tempted to pick all the coating off the case and just use sans coating.

    One great Apple product! Just amazing

    I think its one Really great iphone case. I bought my charcoal IPhone case 1 month ago. It has started to peel a little bit but i Really dont care. Its a case that i responsibly for protecting your device, not Mainly too look Nice. It’s a little pricey but so are the other apple products. My point is if you have enough to buy this case you should! It’s one great case and with very good battery capacity if your iPhone has a bad battery or if you just want more capacity. It has an amazing design and feels so premium! I really recommend this!! Good job Apple

    Bought this case in 07/2016: Still works perfectly

    I had my doubts about this case but since I was living in HI and spent hours at the beach I didn’t want to run out of power. So I took a chance and went for the ugly, clunky, heavy, silicone Apple case with the giant tumor on the back. I can say after two years of almost daily taking the phone in and out of the case (for my daily run since the case won’t fit inside my arm band) that this case has held up phenomenally well. It still keeps my phone charged and I haven’t noticed it getting hot while charging either. I like how it fits in my hand and the grippy feel of the silicone has helped me keep a hold on it more than once. I had the Mophie Juice for my 6 but I like this case better. Thanks Apple. Don’t know if I’ll invest in it again when I move to the 8–or whatever comes next, but my 6s is running strong so I’ll just hold out.

    But but not tough enough

    This works really well. Have owned it and the phone for 2 years now. Most days my phone is still fully charged till late afternoon and that then lasts me till bedtime. It integrates nicely, with both the case and the phone battery’s shown on the notification screen.
    The shape isn’t to everyone liking but I’m fine with it.
    Down side are;
    Cost. £99!
    The case has split around the top edges. Ok this maybe because I keep it in my pocket, but the rubber has come away around the whole thing. It’s still works fine and the broken bits are superglued into place! Although the phone itself is in perfect condition so maybe it’s just doing its job.

    Perfect!

    Apple Has Done it Again!
    Great Product.
    I WOULD Recommend for this EVERYONE. The battery does stick out, but not very bad. Does get a little warm while charging. But great product. The case also protects the phone. When you drop it, it always lands on the back and not the screen.
    Thank You Apple!

    Great product

    Pros:

    1. For the past 3 hours I’ve been using my phone nonstop and the battery status is still at 100%.
    2. Nice feel to the phone - the nonslip surface makes it ideal for resting against objects - less likely to slip out of a shirt
    pocket.
    3. The phones audio sounds better - more body.
    4. Beautifully integrates with phone.

    Cons (not really any)

    1. Slightly heavier and bulkier, but it’s been designed so well that this issue is minimal. The extra weight has some adavantages when resting the phone securely against another object in combination with the nonslip case texture. Also, the slight bulge at the back from the extra battery helps secure the phone in a top shirt pocket from slipping out too easily.

    Bottom line, This product solved the problem I was having with battery life, and exceeded my expectations.

    wearing

    I have owned this case for less than two months and I haven’t dropped it or done anything to make a damage and the case has started to peel off. The battery is awesome but it looks all worn down from little activity and I am very disappointed. This product cost two much for what it turned out to be in a couple months... again very dissapointed.

    Shoddy workmanship

    Fundamentally, this is a good and helpful product. But the workmanship of the case is not worthy of the apple brand. it has completely fallen apart. I have had friends comment on my pathetic looking case, but at this price point, it's hard to justify tossing out. As well, I really do find the battery useful and is required due to the minimal battery life on my iPhone. Apple has refused to replace. IMO it just makes them look bad. Don't bother purchasing...just get an external juice pack.

    perfect

    Silicone out side is nice and grippy, inside is nice and soft. It lasts me the whole day (12 hours of use) and it charges with the the lightening connecter. A must buy.

    Don’t Buy

    I rarely write reviews but figured this one is worth my time. First of all the price of the case does not correlate to the quality of the product. The case very easily falls apart. Battery life is worthy but the fact that the case falls apart so abruptly makes the case useless. I still have the case present on my phone for use of the battery pack. The case now offers little protection to the actual phone. The rubber edges that are supposed to cover a portion of the screen has deteriorated. I dropped the phone and the screen is now cracked because of this useless case. Don’t buy... if I could give negative stars I would at the fact that now I have a phone with a cracked screen.

    Meh

    Terrible material. Top is already ripping after 1 year of careful use. Good charging tho. It should be able to turn on and off tho. But material chips very easily and is already peeling. Material it bads go for a mophie because you can turn it on and off and it is made up of good quality material for same price.

    Least Durable Apple product EVER

    The case's exterior material will always begin to drop off at the corners. Then it will break on one of the upper corners if you remove it once too often. I would estimate you get about twenty removals before it will break. I was foolish enough to buy a second one assuming the fault was mine. It wasn't.

    A few critical flaws

    If I were writing this review based on battery capability alone, it would be 5 stars. If you are simply looking for a case that will keep your phone charged all day so you no longer have to worry about your phone losing battery power, look no further.

    However, there are two reasons for my two star review:

    1. This case is legitimately falling apart on me. The plastic at the top does not hold up very well and it's currently completely peeled away in the area where my volume buttons are. Not only does it not protect my phone well, but it also looks cheap for such an expensive case.

    2. This must be a design flaw because I've gone through two of these with the same issue on both - if you are FaceTiming or trying to talk on speaker, NO ONE can hear you! Something about the case stifles the microphone so you have to remove it every time you want to do either of those things.

    Appreciate the extra battery life, but very disappointed for such a hefty investment in a phone case.

    Skins Starts Peeling Off in Just 1 Year of Careful use...

    The skin started peeling off after about 1 year of AD HOC use (i.e. when I know I am going to need to remain fully charged - ~ 1x or 2x a month). Called Apple asking them whether there is anything they can do, and that I recognize warranty expired. They said "it is cosmetic, can direct you to the nearest store if you are interested in buying an new one" - which was NOT what I called them for (am fully capable of finding the store myself or buying it online myself, thank you very much).

    Disappointed and feel like I did not get my money's worth because I think we are paying a premium for Apple brand and its products and having done that and having everything-Apple in my household, I expected this product to last much longer than it actually did. In the recent years, I honestly think quality has gone down and I am a frustrated, disappointed, about-to-give up 10+ years Apple loyal customer....

    Great idea, but poor choice of material and design

    The case is a nice idea, but the silicone material attracts oil and dirt too easily. My Smart Batter case for my iPhone 7 has ripped at the top where the silicone material is too thin. The case simply is not durable enough to last more than a year. I expected more durability for a case that costs $99.

    Prefer Leather

    I like that this case keeps my phone charged all day however I wish it came in leather rather than silicone. This case does not slide in/out of my pocket as well as the slim, Apple leather case does.

    Big disappointment

    I bought this for my iPhone 6 to use when flying my DJI Mavic Pro. When flying, I only get about 45 minutes of phone battery life so I thought this battery case would help extend that. But it doesn't.

    When the iPhone is plugged into the DJI R/C remote, the case battery is effectively disconnected and not used. This means that my phone's battery will still go down to 0% when in use but the case's battery remains at 100%. After I remove the R/C the case will slowly recharge the phone, but it would be SO much better if the cases's phone just acted like an extension of the internal phone - allowing use of all peripherals while using all connected batteries with power. This is using iOS 11.1.

    I'm very disappointed I bought this - $100 wasted and I still have short flight times.

    good case great battery life bad material

    i love this case but the down side to this is that the silicone is very fragile and peels of very easily Apple should've made it from different material instead of this silicone material and also the price should be lowered since the iphone 7 smart battery case been released it should be $20 or $10 dollars cheaper i mean its not like apple is losing money this case doesn't cost that much to make.
