    Smart battery case

    I just purchased this case 4 days ago. I LOVED it. It worked amazingly. Yesterday I updated my phone to iOS 11. And now the case doesn’t stay charged. It’s 1 in the afternoon. And it’s at 40%. Yesterday, at this time it was at 70%. Very disappointed

    Silicone Wears off

    Apple should have made this with leather instead, Silicone wears out, nice concept but will try others now.
    Will not give apple another $99 in less than a year.

    Avoid

    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.

    Awesome...UNTIL!!

    I have owned this case since October 2016. It Has worked flawlessly until the last month. The lightning connection seems to have a short and now I can't charge the case nor listen to music with the lightning headphone adapter. If I remove the phone from the case, it works great. As we all know, the case wasn't inexpensive and therefore I expect more. I am going to reach out to apple to see if they will back their product, but that remains to be seen. I am giving 3 stars because it was great while it lasted.

    Case is great until it stops pulling charge

    This case worked flawlessly for me for 2 months then I started noticing my phone wasn't holding a charge any longer than normal without the case. I plugged it in a few times to check the status of the charge and it would only show my phone charging. the functionality of this case is supposed to show both the case and phone charging simultaneously when plugged in. that's when I noticed my case was defective. Apple should fix this before launching a new version of this accessory for future device launches.

    Does not hold up to every day use

    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!

    One thing missing...

    My main gripe with this case is the lack of a flip cover to protect the screen of the phone. It works well though I have to be honest and say it doesn't last as long power-wise as my previous powercase which was not an Apple product. That said, it does ensure I can go from early morning to late at night with heavy usage and not worry about the phone dying. I have gone two days with lighter usage and it's handy being able to see how much power is left in both the case and the phone itself. Is it worth £99 when you can get independent makes that are more powerful for less than £15? I'd have to say no. At half the price I'd thoroughly recommend it as it does have the renowned Apple quality but this really is overpriced, even for Apple! So, does it work? Yes. Is it good quality? Yes. Is it for people for whom the price isn't an issue? Perhaps if they don't mind not having protection for the front screen (yes, I know you can put a glass protector on but I'd still prefer something that absorbs impact of dropped or knocked). It IS a good product but I wouldn't pay this full price again.

    Durable! Fell 19 stories

    I love downtown Edmonton, my building is 19 stories. I was trying to take a picture of the full moon however a couple drinks in my phone slipped out of my hands. I watched it fall down to the ground floor. Not only did the case continue to work and is powering this phone but my iPhone 7 worked. The screen was the only thing damaged I could still communicate through Siri
    If I have learned anything is the durability and quality. Yes you may pay a bit more but I can contest to the reasoning behind it.

    Fantastic. Long-lasting

    This product is fantastic. It increases charge greatly for iPhone 7. It can easily get you through 2 days of use. Highly recommend.

    Thrilled With the Product

    I read some reviews on here before ultimately deciding to purchase this product. Some I believe was inaccurate when they said the product wasn't good. I believe this is a great product. I have had it for a few days now and have used my phone all day with moderate use with the battery case. I would stop charging the phone when I woke up at 6:30 AM and wouldn't put it back on the charger until I went to bed at 11:00 PM. At the point where I put it on the charger, I still have 100% battery with 20%+ left in the pack. Some people say that they don't like how it constantly charges but I actually prefer this because you don't have to worry about turning the case on like similar cases.

    Not recommended!

    Extra juice works great but unfortunately the silicone starts breaking apart. Only Apple product that has dissapointed me ever.

    Protects well, extra battery life, sometimes does not charge

    This case is well made and protects your iPhone well. Having extra battery life on the go is a life saver. My only challenge with the case, which is why I gave rating of 3 stars, is that once a week or so, the phone does not charge overnight when you plug it in. It appears to be a challenge with the lightning connector.

    Great case, needs water resistance.

    It's a great battery case, zero hassle as its manages the power for you and last maybe 2 days with moderate use, apple watch and powerbeats3 connected. I only take the case off to clean it or protect it from water, which is where I feel the needs for improvements. As oil and grease will build up the case seems to absorb it quicker than the phone alone which can be annoying but manageable. The lack of water resistance is where the case really falls as I have to remember the case is not certified like the phone and should put the phone away during heavy rain and to be careful while cleaning.

    The case adds bulk like any other but has the smallest footprint compared the other battery cases that offer the same mAh.(I have not seen any other single body battery cases so would not be fair to compare that.)

    Also, I have dropped this case on the sidewalk, office carpet(low pile) and hardwood floors and no damage have happened to the phone or battery.

    Does what its support to do for a short time

    For the price of this case its great to have for the first few months, after that the extra battery doesn't work as it should only last a few hour. Then the quality of the case after months use it looks terrible the edges wore case looks cheap

    Battery is Amazing Until it Stops Working

    Sadly Apple has dropped the ball on this battery case. I have been through 3 iPhone 7 Battery cases in 5 months. They work great for a while then eventually they start turning on and off for no apparent reason. It will drive you nuts thinking you are getting text alerts or if you are not on silent you keep randomly hearing the charging sound that is made when you plug/unplug the charger. This is with no drops, liquid or other abuse. Its great they will swap it out for another but very inconvenient when it keeps happening. There had got to be some kind of internal flaw with these things. Is not an issue with the phone. As soon as you replace it with another one everything is perfect again. When it works, its a great accessory to have.

    Great!

    Had this case for several months now. No more problems with battery life. It adds a tiny bit of weight to the phone, but hardly noticeable. Highly recommended.

    Pretty good

    Pretty good battery life and design, just wish it had a way to turn it off like some other charger cases do.

    EXCELLENT PRODUCT ESPECIALLY WITH POOR IPHONE 7 BATTERY PERFORMANCE

    EXCELLENT PRODUCT ESPECIALLY WITH POOR IPHONE 7 BATTERY PERFORMANCE

    Bought this case at Gatwick Airport last week as my iPhone 7 battery appears to last a few hours maximum from full charge :(

    Cost was £99 if I recall which if you think that an original Apple silicone case costs £40 ish isn't that bad value

    It's very robust and although it does increase the size and weight of your iPhone 7 considerably it actually feels pretty heavy duty from a protection perspective - for instance I think this would sustain a hefty knock if you dropped your phone

    In terms of functionality it's very easy to fit your phone into the case and you just charge as normal - your phone battery will charge first and then once at 100% the case will charge too - then once fully charged the case battery gets used first then your phone battery

    Additional good points include forward facing phone speakers and you can also charge the case independently from the phone too if you need to

    10/10 product for me

    The perfect iPhone case!

    This case is genius! It has the lighting cable insert which is wonderful because you can charge your phone and case at the same time. It works with Car Play if your looking that accessory as well! The shape of the case is a bit awkward, It would probably be a bit nicer looking if it had somewhat of a similar look to mophie® but other than that this case is perfect! Its a perfect addition to the iPhone! It protects very well too!
