    Disappointed

    I’m always a supporter of Apple products, as I find it easy to stand by all their products. But this $100 smart case is just too difficult to even support when it only lasts 5-6 months. The case is shredding apart everywhere, just from taking it in and out of my pocket. Have not once dropped it. I can’t believe I bought the most expensive battery case on the market, and it can’t even compare to a $25-$30 battery case on amazon. I think the thing that really makes me mad, is that the general wear is NOT covered under warranty. Why, Apple? Have spent so much money on your products. I’m so very disappointed.

    Great case overal

    I constantly use my case and it is great for everyday use. I would improve is the way it charges. It can hold it's battery longer than my phone but when it comes to charging it isn't reliable. For my phone the only way it charges is if my phone is on or if I charge it separately. If my phone is powered off my case will not charge at all, and when it's plugged in with my phone connected it takes twice as long to charge.I just got my case replaced 2 days ago because it won't charge, but even though this is my 3rd case since I've payed over $100 to get the case that has a lot of issues. I hope that these issues can be resolved soon.

    None like this one!

    I would like to say that unlike most battery cases out there... it keeps my phone charged without overheating.
    Some days, more times than none, it has better battery life than I did having the iPhone Plus model.
    It helps my keeps my cell reception steady unlike others where it would ruin my cell reception.
    I stil like how it helps redirect the bottom speaker to make it front firing.
    I can still use lighting adapter accessories.
    It’s a shame they don’t make it for the Plus or X.
    And yes it fits the 8 but you will lose wireless charging until you take it out of the case.

    better than i thought..

    some history - i bought a punk case iphone battery case about 1 year ago and gave up using it because it was utter useless.
    so buying this one i was very apprehensive. totally unwarranted:
    this case is absolutely worth the £100
    beautiful texture - easy to fit - and works absolutely brilliantly - i still have 100% battery after 12 hours of hard usage.

    I bought the product red - and the colour is fabulous

    5* - and i will only buy apple products now rather than other manufacturers poor efforts to replicate quality

    Smart Battery Case for Iphone 7

    I used it now for less than 1 year and it literally falls apart now. Must be any failure in the used silicon or similar. I would not buy it again. Sorry, but for 120,--- euros this quality is not acceptable at all.

    Hard to charge and charge does not last

    Should have bought a Mophie. That is what I had for my IPhone 6. Apple talked me into theirs when I bought the 7--big mistake. Don't buy their chargers. Stick with Mophie. Never had any issues with their hard case/charger combo. Apple charger case sometimes does not charge when phone does and then must separate and charge the case separately. Of course my phone is unprotected when case is charging separately.

    Waste of money

    The charging aspect of the case is great. However the $100 case literally falls apart. I no longer use it because of how awful it looks. It was a waste of money. I went on amazon and found a cheaper, better quality charging case and that is what I use now.

    Best one on the market

    I've tried several after market battery packs and they aren't nearly as good as this one. The entire unit charges at one time without having to use a separate charger for the juice pack. I've had mine two years and it's still going strong.

    Great ... for a little while

    This case is awesome. Its just not durable. And once it starts to fall apart theres nothing you can do. Would expect more from a case that costs $165.

    Looks great but won’t hold up!

    This case looks great and fills good in your hands hower, there are a few flaws. The case started falling apart less than a week after I purchased it. When I went back to the Apple store they stated there was nothing they would do about it. Here I am three months later and the case is falling apart even more... If you want to shell out one hundred bucks every few months for a case go ahead and buy this case, if not I wouldn’t recommend it. The case also doesn’t come with an on off switch.

    Do Not Buy!!!

    I bought this case as a Christmas gift to myself and 3 months later the charger piece at the bottom split and broke off. The disappointment was real.

    Don't buy

    I've literally had to replace this case three times. Works fine for a month or two, then stops charging the iPhone 7, only partially charges it or can't be charged itself unless the iPhone is not connected. The iPhone sometimes says, "This accessory may not be supported." The battery widget also sometimes refers to the case as AID UPS instead of Smart Battery Case.

    Apple is no longer selling these in stores (just online) and did not release one for the iPhone 8 or X; I suspect it knows the design is defective.

    Good for a few months

    Worked great to start. Material started to break down after 4 months. After 6 months start having sporadic issues with plugging in the charger. After 9 months it only charged 50% of the time. Replaced it with a Morphie/Otterbox combo.

    Battery is convenient but case falls apart

    Same as all the other reviewers. It's a convenient case, but it started falling apart about a year after I bought it. At $100, Apple should be ashamed of the quality of this case.

    WORST QUALITY

    Just like everyone else wonderful charging but the case peeled within 6 months.... Was told the same thing at several apple store "buy a new one". Its not like I dropped it a ton or took the case off often for it to peel so much around the entire case. For 100 bucks I expected better quality.

    Poor Quality.

    The battery itself is great and I love the integration with Lightning cable. BUT, this is second one I bought and they both began to peel apart around the volume buttons, this one after about three months.

    Worth Every Penny

    Works perfect with my iPhone 8 and helps with my phone keeping a charge through a long school and work day! I love how I can tell the battery’s %% at all times!!

    Not recommended

    As with many of the other disappointed users, I at first loved the case and told everyone I know it was a great product. Then it started to peel much like everyone else's complaints. When inquiring about it with apple, due to it being 13 months old, they told me to purchase a new one. Why on earth would I do that? I had a mophie battery pack for years with one of my old iphones. The over 100 price tag is outrageous for something that can't last more than a year.
