    Best Battery Case out there! Buy it if you have Battery OCD like me!

    • Written by Carl S from Preston

    Having a bit of OCD when it comes to making sure my iPhone 6 is fully charged at all times because you never know when you might need it most, i have become obsessed in obtaining little gizmo's etc in ensuring i have a good battery or can charge it as and when i need too.
    I seen this advised, read up on it and watched reviews on YouTube before taking the plunge and parting with the cash.

    I will tell you now, i am kicking my own backside wishing i did it sooner! It lasts ALL day easily, I take it off charge at 0550 when i get up for work and don't need to plug it back on charge again until i go to bed, its that good people! And take it from me and man who is obsessed with making sure i can charge my phone!

    My only gripe is the colours, Black and White.... but I'm sure more funky colours will be coming soon?

    Buy one ASAP if your like me and like to have a full charge before you leave the house....

    Serves purpose, but half baked integration

    • Written by Scott M from West Seneca

    Firstly, I believe that requiring a case to protect a phone is a ridiculous concept to begin with. A product should be designed to operate stand alone for the purpose it was intended, and built to withstand the conditions that a user would typically expose it to with both functional and aesthetic protection for an anticipated ownership cycle, within reason. The fact that an external battery would be required to keep up to the demands of usage over a short period points to serious design flaws, or at least, underestimations for power demands by associated products (i.e. bluetooth connectivity to the Apple Watch). Putting those blaring elements aside, this is a band-aid to both of those shortcomings, and a necessity for anyone needing to rely on their iPhone with moderate usage over the period of a day. I have always steered towards propriety products to support my beloved hardware, and integration of power management from the lock screen was a star feature in this product. With an iPhone 6 (not sure about the 6s), I have found the power management features seem to stop there. If you leave your phone in the case and power it down to charge overnight, only the phone will charge. You have to leave your phone on when charging in order for the case to benefit, even though it passes through it. Other gripes include the required depth for any headphone jack to reach deep through this case to make a good connection with your phone. Any break design elements in the neck of the 3.5mm jack for headphones will likely be obstructed by the design. Lastly, the speakers on your phone are diverted to project out the front of the case, and sound terrible. I would also imagine that the microphone is affected similarly. The entire sensory portion on the base of the phone (jack, port, mic, and speakers) are concealed and reduced to the equivalent of using a snorkel. If you absolutely need the extra power time, and can deal with the ugly design, additional weight (albeit comfortable), I would not recommend this one. I've always been a huge proponent for Apple products, but this release is not a good indicator of leading product design. If I'd ordered it in a restaurant, I'd be sending it back to the kitchen.

    Great product, needs an adapter

    • Written by Ashley J from Caldicot

    I love this case for when you're caught short without a way to charge via the mains, but most headphones won't fit; should really come with an adapter.

    Love it. Makes the phone feel solid and 'grippable'

    • Written by Mark D from Auckland

    First battery case I've ever used with an iPhone (I've had 3GS, 4, 4S, and now the 6), and this is a lovely design.
    Photos of the case make it look more bulbous than it actually is, I think.
    Love it!

    Defective Unit

    • Written by James G from Cross Plains

    I order this case in Charcoal Grey for my iPhone 6S. The first time I took it out of the box and put my iPhone in it, it worked perfectly. Charging my phone until it was depleted. The problems began once I wanted to charge the case. The charging indicator would briefly illuminate, then turn off and the case would not charge whatsoever. With or with my 6S in the case. Very disappointing because I was very excited to start using this case.

    Great piece of kit, and one which was desperately needed for iPhone. Despite the claims Apple makes as to battery life, the reality is that I use my iPhone 6 constantly, for business and personal reasons, and Bluetooth it to the iWatch and my car etc etc. All of this drains power. Whilst it is not too bad, as in, I can get through a normal business day, if my son then wants to pinch my phone to watch a video, the on-board battery has just about had it! I would never consider putting a third party battery case on to my phone, so to see Apple finally realise that usage of the iPhone in a normal day is too much for the battery, and develop this case, is really good news. Maybe in the future they'll just put a bigger battery into the phone!

    As others have said, this is incredibly simple to use, well made, and typically beautifully presented. I love the fact that the case can be charged independently, and has charging lights on it for that purpose. Also love the battery metering in notifications on iPhone. Looking at some of the third party options, which were actually significantly more expensive, makes me think this is very good value for money too. Highly recommended.

    Love it

    • Written by Elliot O from Sedbergh

    I don't write reviews very often, but I felt the need to share the love for my new Battery Case.

    The fact that you start the day on "200% charge" is really useful - especially when you're out and about and you run the risk of running short at the end of the day e.g. if you've been using maps or playing games all day.

    My wife also has an iPhone 6, so she can also use my case if she needs some charge.

    It's not that heavy, and I don't think it's that big.

    Buy it, and thank me later!

    I think it would also make a fantastic gift for someone who owns an iPhone 6 or 6S.

    Thanks, Apple.

    But, but..that hump?...

    • Written by Tyler L from Cincinnati

    I saw the videos, 'hump gate' as many tech reviewers called it, how could Apple release something sooo ugly? Well, i'm here to tell you, it's actually.....not that bad? No, really! Seeing and feeling the thing in person really puts into perspective how tech reviewers overreact to get those extra clicks. I love the way it feels in hand, has one of the slimmest, if not the slimmest profile for a battery case, and integrates wonderfully with ios 9. Yes, it adds some bulk, but i'll take this ANY DAY over owning a 6s plus for the battery life. I found the 6s plus way too big for my liking, so this battery case was a godsend. My honest opinion is to try it in store if you live close to one, if not, go ahead and purchase it, it's probably your best bet in the batter case category.

    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.

    Great case but 1 missing major feature

    • Written by Bryan W from Atlanta

    I have had the mophie and spyder cases. The apple design is much better EXCEPT there is no on/off switch for the charging function. Phone would last longer if there was. Most other cases seem to have this simple but necessary feature.

    Surprisingly good.

    • Written by Paul M from Lee on the Solent

    Right, don't be put off by the bad hype. I made that mistake but after trying one for size in my local store and realising how much easier than the others it is, I took the plunge. Sure, it's a little subjective in design but it's simpler than any of the other cases to fit, doesn't require a 5 minute build and almost doubles my phone battery. I'm impressed, I'm sure you will be. Oh, and it makes the phone more substantial to grip and is considerably cheaper than the other in-store battery cases.....

    Wouldn't recommend.

    • Written by Giulio S from Bolton

    I bought this case because my 6S battery life wasn't that great and i feel like i always had to plug it in. I bought this case thinking there would be an on/off switch to turn the battery off when you didn't need it but there wasn't. The case got very hot at times making it uncomfortable to hold. I loved the design besides the fact i had to slide the case off every time I wanted to plug my headphones. I just ended up returning the case mostly because after a week it was driving me crazy and I just wanted my money back after spending almost $140 after tax. Over all this case was pretty good besides the small problems. Just really wish they added an on/off switch and made the head phone jack a little more accessible.

    Really like this product. Good quality

    • Written by Colin S from Southampton

    Looks and feels good and not too big. Only criticism is I don't feel the case battery lasts as long as claimed. You can see how charged both phone and case are on notification screen. Phone uses power from case and then it's own battery. I'd recommend this produce. Good quality you come to expect from Apple

    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.

    Good but room for improvement

    • Written by Nick M from PITTSBURGH

    I bought the case today. It seems solidly built, has held a good charge despite heavy use, is easy to put on/take off. It could do with a little more battery capacity, comparing it to the numbers put out by other brands. But I like that it's a litte more integrated than the others - the on-screen battery percentage for one, the lightning port for another. I do wish the battery icon on the top of the screen was integrated - it's pointless to show me 100% all the time, but then I have to go to Notifications to see what the REAL numbers are. The covering is good and grippy, which is great except when I want to take it out of my pocket. I think with a software update, it could be a really solid product.

    So far so good

    • Written by Joe W from Clarkston

    This would be 5 stars for me at $69.99-$79.99 price point.

    - Good Grip (won't slip from your hands)
    - Lightning pass through (no Micro USB like most cases to charge it)
    - Speaker moved to front of phone. I love this because it was one of the things I do not like about the iPhone. When the speaker is on bottom sometimes it's hard to hear since I am a little hard of hearing.
    - Price is a little high
    - The material collects lints, dirt and hair from your pocket leaving it impossible to keep nice looking if you put in your pocket.
    - Not able to use a lot of headphones due to not having an adapter (not a big deal to me).

    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.

    Nice, but...

    • Written by Chris S from West River

    Like the material, like the case shape/form (contrary to all the negative reviews online), but the one issue I have is the headphone jack. I mean, really? Apple made it so their headphones fit, but some many other accessories do not fit. Why not make it a little wider or provide an adapter for the $100 you're charging us? I love Apple products, but this is typical and gets old...
