    A must have - but it will fall apart...

    • Written by Richard G from Fleet

    I purchased this case jut over 2 years ago from Apple and its been a life saver for me. The battery has been solid and performed very well and kept me in power all day, every day.

    My iPhone spends 90% of its time in the case. Just the odd occasion where I need to take it out, i.e. I can charge the case separately to the phone. However, the top end of the phone is peeling and splitting. What a mess. The hard plastic is coated in a rubber compound which has blistered away from the plastic, and now the plastic is broken where the 'mute' button is.

    I have tried to fix it with super glue, but it cracks whenever I take it out.

    Can anyone tell me if the battery can be transferred to a new case/holder. It seems a shame to through away a £99GBP item because the case perished? if it can't then it will have to be thrown away.

    Would I buy it again? Not sure, as 2+ years of life seems expensive for what it is.

    Awesome Case For my Purposes

    • Written by Douglas R from Milford

    I know this case has issues from the bad reviews, but it is a great design, a bit heavy, but if you are like me and won't take it off a lot, it should hold up. I don't take it off at all so I don't think it will be subjected to the cracking of the top part. For me, I have a 3 year old iPhone 7, which I don't want to drop $1000 to replace because of the battery. On top of that the charging port is so loose it will not hold any charging cable in regardless of it being an Apple cord or any cord at all. By getting this case, I never have to take it off and I essentially solved 2 problems for $70 with this case. I get a new charging port with this case and double the battery life. Now I can hold off on buying a new phone for another year. I like it a lot!

    Please do not buy one......

    • Written by Tom K from Edinburgh

    This case is a beautiful fit and can effectively double your battery life. There is a lot of good things about this battery case. The reason I have only given it 1 star is because you will need to clean out the microphone grill at least every week. Within no time people could not hear what I was saying during phone calls. I also think there is an inherent design flaw with grills and small channels; whilst using FaceTime or Skype or speaker phone people can not hear me until I remove the case. This renders this product pretty much useless to me. Another issue is the coating on the case. When brand new the coating allows you take your phone in and out of your pocket without problem. Within a very short time the high wear areas are down to the silicon which sticks to the lining of your pockets making things all the more frustrating. This is a ‘Macbook pro butterfly keyboard’ product. Great on paper but inherently flawed. Avoid this product.

    I was charging my phone 2-3 times a day before this case, I can go through an entire day without charging my phone now. I love this case. A must have!

    Great Charge Poor Durability

    • Written by Michael L from Elmira

    I love that this case keeps my iphone charged all day but hate the durability. The silicone peels and cracks easily despite few drops. I've had this case for less than a year and it looks terrible. I hold apple to a higher standard than most. Maybe if the case was made of something different it would hold up better. definitely not worth $99 price tag.

    This case is the best.

    • Written by Regina E from St Louis

    So people are complains about this case, and I honestly don’t know why. Sure, it is a little pricey, but it’s worth it. My phone never died, it lasted for 2 days with just the charging case. I accidentally left my phone on top of my car and drove off. It fell off my car into a 4 lane road with heavy traffic. I didn’t realize it until I got to the grocery store. I went back and searched for it almost sure the phone would be demolished. It wasn’t. It had some tire marks on it, but I believe this case absorbed the impact of the cars running over it. It worked perfectly after that as well. I just bought the iPhone XS Max, and I purchased a charging case for the phone as well.

    Poor quality, has fallen apart in 3 months

    Absolutely love the idea of the case but the rubber is falling off. I treat my phone pretty gently and didn’t expect it to happen this fast! Bummer

    Best phone case I’ve ever used!!

    • Written by Kate S from Baton Rouge

    This phone case is amazing!! Not only does it look great on your phone, it charges it as well. You have three different options of color, red black and white.

    Bought this back in 2016

    • Written by Anahi V from New York

    I’ve had this case for almost 3 years now and it still works! I’m writing this review because I’m upgrading my iPhone 7 to the new one that will come out this fall and I’m feeling kinda sad that I’m going to be parting ways with this case. I used to go through battery cases every 5-6 months because they always stopped working so I was extremely surprised and so so so happy with how long this case has lasted me. The price was definitely worth it. I’m going to be buying the updated phone’s version of this case when it comes out. My only complaint is that I wish there was a button to turn the case off once the phone reached 100%.

    Slowly teared apart

    • Written by Oliver H from Santa barbara

    I have only owned this case 5 months and it has started peeling apart. The battery is great. Size is great. But in just 5 months of use. It has fallen apart.

    Good

    • Written by Victoria C from Potomac

    I have had this case for about a month and i really like it. It has no wear and tear on it. Now you will need to charge it separatley because the case dies quickly if you charge them together. Also when it is charge it will last from 10am to about 8 pm. I have use the case alot during it charging my phone and it does not die quickly. I will watch Netflix or play games and it keeps a reason about of charges to the phone. Now i know we all have different experiences when using the phone case but this is my honest feed back. I have had no trouble with apple product currently and hope not to in the future. :)

    Will not last

    • Written by Nitish M from DELRAY BEACH

    loved it at first, then my case started ripping and peeling apart. I actually have 2 of these and it happened to both without me dropping or doing any hard. Design flaw, and apple should be aware of this. Should last more than 8-12 months at this price

    Adds great battery life but not at all durable.

    • Written by Jennifer K from Brooklyn

    I have gone through two of these cases in nine months. While they give you at least 50% of another battery charge and protects the phone during drops, the case itself is incredibly fragile and negatively impacts call quality. Simply removing the case (for cleaning or to take a call) weakens the top edge of the case. My next case will be a Mophie.

    Poor quality case

    • Written by David L from Mitcham

    I've had the case for less than 6 months and the case has degraded significantly. This is not covered under the warranty as it's considered aesthetic damage...for a company that puts real emphasis on how it's products look and feel this does not meet the usual standard.

    iPhone case silicone shredded and tore off

    • Written by Gabby C from Huntsville

    The first month of having this case, I loved it. I could charge my phone 200% and listen to music while doing so. I understood $100 was a lot to pay, but I expected quality from Apple. I believed the case would hold up.

    Little did I know, the case would fall apart soon after. The silicone tears off to reveal a plastic shell case. I originally loved the sleek design molded to my phone, but now, I get comments laughing, asking when I’ll get a new case. I’m upset with this, Apple. I expected more.

    It's falling to pieces within few weeks. Would have given -5 stars because Apple products should never be like this.

    I love it, but buyers beware

    • Written by Douglas B from Victoria

    I loved the power this battery provides and it has been 2 years of worry free use, knowing that I always had the juice to make it through the day. I have had my case since day 1 with my iPhone 7 which I bought in September 2016.

    The reason I am writing you is to give you some advice:

    1 - It has seen some rough times. This pack is made to hold a battery, it is not necessarily made to protect your phone. I have found that over the years the battery pack becomes more finicky with every drop. Also, the rubber coating has shredded so that almost 50% of the rubber coating is gone. I think this is caused more by the heat the battery pack generates when working full speed rather than my slippery fingers.

    2. And more importantly – as I worried, I have killed my iPhone battery. As everyone knows, a battery loses its strength over time if you never let it run down completely (phantom memory). The way this case is designed, I did exactly that every single day. Think about it. For the most part I could get through the day on one charge, almost never getting to the iphone battery at all. When I did, maybe I got to 80% before I was done for the day. Now, without the battery pack, my phone barely lasts a few hours. It is for this reason I think the other companies have a good thing. They offer a switch to turn on the batter when you need it. So you can use your phone battery properly and re-charge at the very last moment.

    I love my pack, but buyers beware.

    RIP

    • Written by Ashley K from West Olive

    I bought this case 2 years ago and used it with every phone up until I recently upgraded to the XR. I travel a ton and having this was great so that I didn’t have to be stuck with a charger constantly. I’m so sad they didn’t make another for other models :( there’s other brands out there but they’re garbage and the feel of them isn’t as nice as this one for grip purposes.
