    Won’t outlast phone

    • Written by Oliver T from Marshalls Creek

    I am disappointed this case will not outlast my phone. Falling apart and sporadically charges phone after less then a year and a half. Never dropped and just sits in my pocket most of the time.

    Great idea but is unreliable

    • Written by Larry T from Sidney

    On my 2nd one. 1st one lasted 10 days. 2nd one should be coming in the mail soon. Do your research on these they all seem to go to a point they will no longer take a charge. Then it's just another 9.99 case. There is no support to fix this issue. There are more reliable cases out there for the same money and they last longer than 10-30 days

    Huge Disappointment

    • Written by Sarah M from St. Thomas

    With the price tag being so high, I’m especially disappointed with the quality of this case. Almost every other day, my case will not charge. Sometimes if it does, it won’t charge all the way, and stop mid charge. I love the look and feel, but I’m so disappointed that I spent a lot of money on a case that does not run efficiently.

    External material peels off

    • Written by Jamie W from Earlsfield

    Jan 2016 to Apr 2018 (1yr 3m) - Great battery life, bits consistently peel off to from careful and basic usage.
    May 18 - Battery now will not charge at all.

    Not the longevity I would expect from an £100 product (whether Apple or not)

    Poor Quality

    • Written by Matthew R from Somerset

    The charging is terrific, however the case itself is cheaply made. The case didn’t even last 6 months before it started tearing and peeling. This product is not worth the money, until they use a hard case cover or fix this issue I would highly discourage you from buying this case.

    Falls apart faster than Apple power cables

    • Written by Scott V from glendale

    My review started at a 4.5 for the first week, and has quickly plummetted to one star from there. The extra battery life is great, but it doesnt matter much when your “protective case” is falling apart. This is the second case ive had. They both began deteriorating around the first few weeks.I wish they would fix the case material, because I belive this is the most asthetically pleasing case on the market.

    Disappointed

    • Written by Brandon C from Enid

    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.

    Smart Battery Case for Iphone 7

    • Written by Oezer D from Grevenbroich

    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.

    Waste of money

    • Written by Kelly P from Norton

    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.

    Looks great but won’t hold up!

    • Written by Lawrence S from Moore

    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!!!

    • Written by John S from Vacaville

    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

    • Written by Steve S from London

    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.

    WORST QUALITY

    • Written by Stephanie R from Gilbert

    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.

    • Written by John L from Glenview

    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.

    Not recommended

    • Written by Brian L from New York

    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.

    I expected more from Apple

    • Written by Mersad S from West Jordan

    Being a Apple avid buyer of their products I am highly disappointed in this case. At first I loved the case but after a few months of use the silicone has started to peel. I had the case for about one year now and most of the silicone is gone. Apple did not want to replace the case under warranty and recommend that I buy a new case. I expected the case to last a lot longer for being $100+ tax.

    Case started peeling after a few months

    • Written by Gary H from Philadelphia

    Loved this product until the case started peeling after a few months. Being an avid apple supporter could not be more disappointed. Because of the peeling on the top, got a cracked screen when my phone fell on the ground once. Great product, poor quality.

    TERRIBLE.

    • Written by Ezequiel G from Bakersfield

    At first the Battery Case was awesome. I loved the extra charge that would keep me going ALL DAY. It was months down the road where we started having issues. The case started peeling and eventually broke off. I would expect better quality for a 100 dollar case.. REFUND MY MONEY!
