    Top corners of the case coming apart

    • Written by Natalie M from Santa Ana

    I normally don't leave reviews but I am just really sad about the condition of my case. I am very careful with my things, I've never dropped my phone or put it in my pockets long, yet not 8 months after I purchased the case the corners have nearly completely peeled off the base of the case and is nearly impossible to use comfortably. The charging mechanism still work but every time I try and put the phone back in it or it's just making it worse. For the price of the case it should have a longer life.

    Made poorly

    • Written by EDWIN R from Woodbridge

    After 8 months the case started deteriorating on in the top corners. Eventually the material started ripping leaving my phone exposed. Went to the Apple Store and they gave me $20 off on a new one. I'm soo sick of my cables always falling apart like this too. The battery worked ok I guess but I should have went with the mophie.

    Better off going aftermarket

    • Written by Ryan J from Wayland

    Sprung for the genuine Apple accessory even though similar aftermarket accessories were 1/4 the price. Not worth it at all -

    Silicone started wearing off within the first couple weeks of use , eventually the finish had worn off by month one and by month two the casing was starting to tear at the upper left hand side. Mind you I have left the phone in the case and was not removing it and putting it back in daily. Apple will not cover this under warranty as they consider it cosmetic (50% of the reason for buying an Apple product)

    Now my phones battery runs hot and it certainly doesn't last as long as when the case was new and I have not even owned it 6 months. I wish I had returned it when I had the opportunity.

    My advice - buy a generic charger case for 1/4 the price , at least you wont feel hosed when it fails.

    no good silicone falls apart

    • Written by thomas F from deer park

    Had the case 7 months and rarely place it in my pocket. Like everyone else the corners of the case start falling apart wearing for no reason. Going to try and exchange it. For a 100 $ should last longer.

    Great case!

    • Written by Erik H from Kent

    I have had other external battery cases in the past. All required a different cable to charge their case. Very,very frustrating!!!
    I love that you can use the OEM lighting cable. I like that you can view on your phones screen both battery levels!

    Great design Apple!!!

    Perfect solution

    • Written by Chris C from Southampton

    I bought this case when I upgraded to an iPhone 7 from a 6 when I used a mophie case. This is much better. It is lighter than the mophie, you can check the case power alongside the phone power on the screen and does genuinly last all day. I fully charge the phone and case (this is done via lightning on one charge) overnight, take it off charge at 05:30 and have never run out when I re-charge at the end of the day (usually has over 50% of the case charge remaining). I couldn't be without this quality product.

    Definitely worth it

    • Written by Aaron L from El Paso

    If you are on the fence about this product, just go ahead and buy it. I spent about a month researching battery cases for my iPhone 7. I even almost bought the mophie juice pack air but placed it back on the shelf. $100 is steep for a case but it is worth it. I don't have to worry about micro usb cables, Bluetooth headphones, or two-piece battery packs. I now just get to simply enjoy my iPhone without having to worry about battery life. "Hey Siri" is enabled without a second thought. I have location services enabled and I don't have to worry about using power save mode. I just use my iPhone without having to worry about a thing. I know there are some questions about using wired headphones with this case; they work absolutely fine without any loss or degradation to sound quality. This case seems to provide adequate protection to the screen and to the camera lense. If you are reading this, this is the case for you.

    Bad material

    • Written by Eduardo N from Itú

    Last May 13th I was in Houston and I bought an Smart Battery case for my IPhone 7. Although my phone have never fallen in the floor, the case is already peeling.

    So, two months use and it's in bad condition. I won't buy another one.

    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.

    Best case for power users

    • Written by Omar I from Orland Park

    I got this case for 7 months now. I never had to seek a charge during the day since I got it!
    And by the time I go to bed (after the smart case battery is at zero) the phone battery is at 70-90% on the worst cases. I Never had a problem with it except for the finish fading. I will give it a 5 star because of all the headaches it saved me from plugging my phone into the carger during the day. Oh and it's great for traveling!

    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.

    Wears easily

    • Written by Danny M from Castleford

    Although the case works fine for charging the phone, all of the case corners had started to rub off within a week. I've had this case around a month now and it looks so worn, like I've had it for a couple of years. Makes the apple product look very shoddy

    Performs well, not durable under mild conditions

    • Written by Roger C from Taunton

    I love how it performs. No doubt. Mine however looks like I abuse my phone which is not the case excuse the pun. The finish is gone on all the corners after about 2-3 months of use. Very upsetting considering the cost of this thing.

    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.

    Smart battery case

    • Written by Casi J from Clinton

    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

    • Written by Hamilton S from miami

    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.
