    Dead After 6 months - just like the reviewer right below me

    • Written by PATRICK D from Metairie

    Amazing that when I came here to write this review, the most recent one posted pretty much mirrors mine - Gerry H's review, that should be right below mine.

    I bought mine in January 2016, I still have the receipt. Around a month ago it started acting strange. I would wake up after having it plugged in all night, and the phone would be charged, but the case had no charge at all. If I took the case off and charged it separately, it would then take a charge.

    Fast forward to now, just about 6 months after I purchased it. Completely dead. Won't charge at all. Great while it lasted, but $100 for something that only lasts 6 months? Sorry Apple, you guys missed the mark on this one.

    Cool, but not quite...

    • Written by Gokhan T from Astoria

    Everyone has been slamming the design, but I actually liked the camel-hump primitive design. The display of battery levels on both the phone and the case are great. Biggest drawback, and the reason why I am returning it is because of the headphone jack. It is indented deep inside the case, and unless you're using a lame Apple headphone, you won't be able to use it. So I have no way of hooking up my Shure SE846 earphones. Mophie and everyone else has the same thing, but they actually give you an ADAPTER! So lame on Apple for no springing the extra nickel and giving you an adapter.

    Excellent product

    • Written by Mohammed A from Keighley

    Charges phone and case with one lightening charger. Battery never runs out also makes phone sound better as faces speaker to user.
    This case has a hump but better to hold I think also a lot easier in landscape mode. A1 to Apple.

    Simple

    • Written by Michael M from Uniontown

    I truly appreciate the features of this case. Antenna, fits my hand very well, iOS integration, the charcoal gray goes well with my space gray 6s, single cable charging, no audio interference, easy on easy off are some of favorite features.

    What I don't like is the price, no disclosure on tech specs such as HOW the case functions and dimensions/weight, omission of 3.5mm dongle, and it seems that it could be a hair lighter.

    There are many options for battery cases, but the Apple case won out due its simplicity and form factor. As to the aesthetics...you like it or you don't. I like it quite a bit. This would be a 5 star product if the price was a little lower or if there was a little more value in the form of an additional cable or 3.5mm dongle.

    Apple iPhone 6/6S Smart Battery Case

    • Written by Mohammad S from Mitcham

    I found this product to be extremely useful. There were quite a number of negative comments regarding this product on YouTube while unboxing, but clearly they did not give it a try themselves. The silicone case adds a little weight & thickness to the handset, but I find that extremely advantageous as it provides a better grip to the handset than I get without it. What's more, I can now go through the whole day without charging it. As for the price, it's nothing compared to how much other companies charge for normal cases which provide less protection than the Smart Battery Case. This case provides all round protection. I highly recommend this product.

    Brilliant

    • Written by Ross P from Glasgow

    I've had my iPhone 6 for 18 months now, and after setting up my Apple Watch which requires a Bluetooth connection I was finding my battery wasn't lasting very long at all.

    The Smart Battery Case is a great product - and feels of a high quality as you'd expect.

    At £79 its a bit pricey - but as always with Apple, you get what you pay for.

    On an average day I'm using my phone from around 6am - music, emails, web browsing, social media and now Apple Watch connection at various points during the day.

    At 14:30 my phone battery is at 100% and the case battery still has 20% left.

    A great product.

    Disappointed in performance over time

    • Written by JASON K from Bentonville

    For the first 90 days, I could not recommend this product enough and could even justify the premium pricing and lack of features. That being said.. after about 95 days my smart battery case now acts erratically, rarely charges, or just does nothing when plugged in. I can see from other postings that this is not uncommon after a period of time with this product. I normally would not submit a review on an accessory, but this product does not feel like it has the quality most customers have come to expect (and pay for) from Apple. If you are looking to use this case every day, I would recommend researching other products that have been tested to consistently perform over time.

    Smart Battery Case has stopped working

    • Written by Phillip H from Medina

    When the case was working, it worked great. I have not abused it, dropped it, or had it under any harsh conditions. Case has just stopped working. Seems as though Apple has rushed through this one - very disappointed.

    Do. not. purchase. this. item.

    • Written by Aurelie G from Old Brookville

    I had originally bought this item due to the fact that I am rarely home or close to a charger. In the beginning, this charging case was great! It worked amazingly and allowed my phone to stay charged for almost 2 days straight. But, after use, the battery of my phone continued to drain. Now, every single time my phone drops from 100%, the battery of my phone thinks that it is dead and because of this, I have little to no use of my phone because it cannot hold a charge. How ironic that an Apple product would destroy another Apple product.

    Disappointment – Good for two months only

    • Written by Uri A from FOREST HILLS

    I thought it was great at first. You expect that something you buy for a $100 will last longer than two months and won't brick your phone for hours. I'm writing this on my mac because it is the second night in a row that my phone battery was drained by this thing (while connected to the power) and after heating all day. I hope my phone restarts after this, I've been waiting for 40 minutes.

    In any c a s e – I strongly recommend against buying it.

    This shouldn't happen with product this expensive. I was happy to pay premium for what I thought were apple standards. Now I feel I was ripped off, and the hassle of having my phone bricked on a work day is even worse.

    More thought = more customer service

    • Written by Tom G from Llanharan

    First off I love this case. Feels good, works great and is very well made. I don't mind the bump. You have to give up something for extra battery life. But what really mugs me off is how Apple just keeps taking the mickey. You can only really use apples own headphones as no others fit. You can't even use the dr beats headphones and they own them. First they could have made it so the headphone socket is extended. But then they offer an adaptor for another £7. So they knew the issue then!? That's just taking the mickey guys. Like when you introduced the Lightning connector. If you just offer an adaptor with it, you know you can afford it in the price, you won't annoy customers. Never ever set out to annoy your customers guys. In the long term it will always impact your reputation. Always. Stop it. Think......

    Killed my phone battery

    • Written by Danielle P from clarksville

    I absolutely loved this case for the first three to four months. My phone would stay charged for practically the entire day. After these first four months, my phone could not hold the charge. It began to drain the case battery extremely fast and then as soon as my iPhone percentage was under 100 it would die. Now my phone is constantly dying at 100 percent and coming back alive at 10 percent only to die again as soon as I unlock it. I had a feeling that constantly charging your phone is bad for it so I specifically asked if it would ruin my phone battery and multiple Apple workers said No. Do not buy this case and instead opt for a case that can turn on and off.

    Stopped Charging after 6 months

    • Written by Gerry H from port hueneme

    In all of the years that I have been purchasing apple products, this is the first product I have purchased that appears to use subpar material. The battery should last more than 6 months and during its 6 month life it has been very errratic in its performance. It is dead now. What a waste of $110.00. I would not purchase this product. It does not meet any of apple standards via support or function. This is one of their true failures.

    not worth $100 for sure

    • Written by carolyn G from Santa Rosa

    Most positive reviews are from new users. I've had mine about 7 months and the edges are coming apart, and the case does not hold a charge very long and takes much longer to charge itself via 110. A $100 battery/case should definitely last longer than mine had. NOT RECOMMENDED!

    Really disappointing quality

    • Written by Tim S from New York

    Apple is really losing its edge over quality. This case hasn't even lasted 6 months and it's already starting to come apart. The soft outer shell is not durable at all and is peeling off. Which is a total letdown. In addition, the overall design is so lame. I've actually had people ask me if this was an actual Apple battery case as it looks like something that a PC company from the 90s would make.

    Apple, if you're going to charge $100 for a stupid case, at least make sure it lasts. Apple quality is slipping and you'll continue to have people defect when you make mediocre products like this. I hate this case.

    Not fully thought out...Could use a lot of optimization.

    • Written by Keo S from Brooklyn

    Purchased on 6/29/17
    Defective on 7/14/17

    Issue 1: Smart Battery Case is always charging your phone, diminishing your actual iPhone battery lifespan.
    Optimization 1: Add power button

    Issue 2: Headphone Jack does not come with adapter or extension for 3rd part headphones.
    Optimization 2: Supply a headphone jack extension cord.

    Issue 3: While Case is active, Ive had issues with my iPhone actually overheating and powering down a few times a day.
    Optimization 3: Add More vents?

    Issue 4: Phone case stopped working after 16 days or less. The case doesn’t hold a charge at all.
    Optimization 4: Start all over. Period.

    Opinion: Apple has reached a point of diminishing return.

    Average product

    The battery life is ok but the case reduces Wifi range dramatically. So much so that I would say I wasted money buying the case.

    Great Battery Case but some issues.

    • Written by Ronnie J from Delaware

    This case works well to keep it charged longer. The bump on the back of the case was no issue to me. Case added a little more weight to the phone. The only issue I had was when I plug my phone into my vehicle to play my music as well as Pandora, it would not read or start playing my music. Before this case, when I would plug my iPhone into my car it would show my music on my car screen but since I had this case it said no media found. I returned this case and will be waiting for a new and improved case in the future.

    Battery life is good but...

    • Written by Paul W from Douglaston

    I'm noticing severe problems with my iPhone since starting to use this. I feel like the case is trapping the heat and causing the phone to malfunction. It is freezing quite a bit. When I go out of service and come back into a service area, it takes a while so I am not sure if the case also impedes it interferes with the signal. I am wondering if I am the only one who is experiencing this?

    good case great battery life bad material

    • Written by Alfredo C from Columbus

    i love this case but the down side to this is that the silicone is very fragile and peels of very easily Apple should've made it from different material instead of this silicone material and also the price should be lowered since the iphone 7 smart battery case been released it should be $20 or $10 dollars cheaper i mean its not like apple is losing money this case doesn't cost that much to make.
