    I only used the battery case for a good 4 days until the case overheated my phone and fried my battery and cell reception. NOT ONLY THAT when I stop using the case my phone would still overheat even if im not touching it.

    I purchased this case yesterday. All was fine for the first 24 hours. Last night I left it charging overnight and it was topped off. By 11:00 this morning (with very normal mild use), the case was down to about 50% power. At lunchtime, it overheated and said I couldn't use the phone (it had the temperature icon saying phone needed to cool down). As this was happening, the remaining 50% of case power magically disappeared. I took phone out of case and let it cool down, then put it back in a few minutes later. Same deal. Phone and case were burning hot and it zapped away all of my phone battery. This case DOES NOT WORK. It does not extend your battery life, it halves it by overheating. They need to look into this and issue a recall on these new cases as they are bad news.

    Ruined my iPhone battery!!!��

    • Written by Sara S from Holstein

    Yes it was nice to have the extra battery life, but not that i don't use it my iPhone battery is terrible. Not only did it ruin the battery in my phone but it also started showing wear and tear. the corners were losing there texture and in several parts it started peeling. $100? NOT WORTH IT!!!

    Case overheats!!!

    • Written by leonardo M from ASTORIA

    Great concept of this case and purchased for its purpose of extending battery life worked great for the first 2 days and after that sadly it overheated to the point that it fried the signal and obviously dropped the call i was in, and was so hot i had to remove it from the case and now even using it out of the case my phone heats up and battery life seems to be reduced, guess I'm taking it back to apple..smh i really liked this case but now see that I'm not the only one that has encountered this issue, hope this review helps other customers who want to purchase this case just beware and save yourself the hassle that i have to go through now.

    I am on my second case now have had it for 2 weeks and it is causing my iphone to glitch same as before. The phone goes back and forth from recognizing the battery pack then back to phone battery. Almost like a short. It wakes the phone up automatically back and forth randomly throughout the day. Would be really nice if I did not keep having this problem.

    Every thing that I use is apple. My MP3 player, mt laptop, my phone, and my ipad. But this has been the most disappointing out of all the products apple has made. There is no point to price this peice of junk at $100. I would reccomend putting velco on a battery pack and on your phone and just attaching them together. That's what I did, and my battery now lasts ten times as long as the "Smart" battery case. I am very disappointed.

    Longevity Lacking

    • Written by virginia W from mercer island

    Worked fine for a few months, then died mysteriously. So I guess it cost me $1 per day -- hardly worth it.

    I had problems with other aftermarket battery cases so I thought would be a good idea to pay the premium for an official Apple battery case. It worked well for a couple months and now it has a problem that makes it just as unusable and unstable as other cheap brands. The case has to be taken off to charge separately and then even when it's attached to the phone and both devices fully charged, the screen goes on and off every few seconds because the phone thinks you're constantly unplugging and replugging in a power source. No longer usable.

    How to turn off or on your battery case?

    • Written by Najeeb A from New jersey

    Apple company your the best company in the world. With great ideas and invention. The one thing about this product is that you can't turn off or turn on your charger like i need control over my battery case. When my phone is about to die i would like to just click the button and let it charge but just automatically charging is not the best idea because your wasting battery and over heating your phone. I would like for apple to change the smart battery case or update for those people who would turn off or turn on the battery case because i think this is the best way to help apple user.i hope your receive this feedback and do something about it. I love you guys i really do. You are just the best. Although the design and feeling of the case is AMAZING. Thank you Apple

    Smart battery case

    • Written by Tashan P from Northampton

    I got this to try out because I'm was on the go and sometime I'm not near a power supply to charge my iPhone the case is no worth £99.00 for what it does, I took my iPhone off charge at home then I was out for day and my iPhone was constantly charging when I took it off the charger then I was doing my day to day stuff etc using satnav on my iPhone it dead on me about 5pm then after I could use my phone battery I thought it's was as and when to use the battery on case, I think it's bit pointless if you're iPhone battery dead to when you need case to kick in.

    Does not hold up to every day use

    • Written by Nicholas C from Edmonton

    Initial impression is a convenient battery case with battery charge notification in the OS. However, the convenience wears out over time, like the rest of the case.

    The satin/matte finish quickly wears away at the corners leaving the sticky material underneath that attracts dust.

    The battery itself holds charge well, but the awkward design of the battery case leads to failure after regular use. The lower part of the case is vulnerable to causing a loose connection that will frequently disconnect the battery case from the phone leaving you with nothing more than a chunky protector. Constant fiddling may reward you with charging that lasts minutes if you're willing to let it lie flat - forget about putting it in your pocket or purse.

    Having gone through the first case in <30 days, and the second case in 3 months, it's clear that this case isn't made for reliability or durability!

    After 45 days, this case no longer takes a charge and won't work. I expect a lot more durability from Apple. Avoid this and the need for a return trip to an Apple Store.

    Bought in October - now falling apart

    • Written by Marcelo F from Curitiba

    Seriosly, it is disintegrating itself, silicon is wearing off and the left side (volume controls) are literally ripping apart, it started loosing right in the hard/soft part of it. Also sometimes it doesn't get to charge and for two nights I woke up with zero charge in both the phone and the battery case. I NEVER take the iPhone out of the case, I can prove just by having it checked on the batt cycles, I inserted my iPhone 7 at the very first day (I bought them together) and RARELY took it off, so there should be no reason for the case to fall apart.

    Doesn't work after 2 months..

    • Written by Benjamin J from Barnesville

    Was great to begin with, but not it doesn't charge. Silicon falls apart. Doesn't charge.. must've been made with the MacBook Pro's... I expected better from Apple.

    Don't buy this!

    • Written by Vivian U from Clovis

    I purchased this case in February, only to have it die 2 months later. The case was still under warranty, so I exchanged it out for a new one. This new one died today, having lasted another 2 months. Don't waste your money on this case.

    Defective design!

    • Written by Joe L from Lakeside

    I am on my 4th battery case because they eventually go bad. The lightning connection with randomly connect and disconnect while the phone is in the case. Apple pretends like this is not a chronic problem, but after replacing 3 bad ones, there has to be a design defect. For the price, I recommend you pick up a cheap Chinese battery case on amazon or ebay.
