    Iphone XR Smart Batter Case - Does not Work

    • Written by Malhar N from Maryland heights

    I purchased this in Feb 8th 2019 and this case stopped charging by end of April. I am using the original charger that came with the phone, the same cable will charge the phone once it is out of the battery case.

    The battery case has no damage - neither water nor force ( No damage at all) and is not covered under the limited warranty that Apple provides, So certainly not worth 129 + Taxes.

    No on/off switch

    • Written by Lori Sharpe D from Brentwood

    I was so happy to see Apple come out with a case. I have always owned Mophies but haven't been able to get one for the XR. The case is pretty streamlined for its storage capacity but the fact that it does not have an on/off switch is a nightmare. I want the battery pack as a back up not as the primary source for powering the phone all day. Through experience I know these battery cases do eventually run out of available charging power so it being constantly used will definitely shorten the life of the device.

    Love to Hate

    • Written by jane K from North Hollywood

    I loved the battery case at first and didn't have any problems with it. But after two weeks of using it, it killed a lot of my iphone's battery heath. Now I sort of hate it and feel disappointed. Can't return it now, so most likely I will only be putting it on and using it when my iphone's battery health is no longe effective...meaning I'll only be putting that case back on if my iphone can't last 3 hours without being charged.

    I Wouldn't Buy It

    • Written by Carl R from Washington

    I returned this case. Great idea. Not so great follow-through. Not having the freedom to decide when I want the case to charge my phone really defeats the purpose of having it for me. I sit at a desk most of the day so I don't need the charger charging my phone. Maybe one day Apple will design this with a simple on/off switch but until then it's not worth the investment. First time in a LONG time an apple product has disappointed me. Expect one next year with an off/on switch for $50 more lol
