    Durabilty?

    This case is fantastic as far as function. It does not slip out of my hand. I work all day and night at the hospital and the phone charge may drop to 95% by 24 hours after removing it from the charger. If I have bluetooth and the wifi on, it will not last as long and will start getting to the phone battery within 12-16 hours. It is DRAMATICALLY better than using the phone alone. I could not work a whole day, let alone all day and night, without plugging in before.

    My one issue is with the durability of the silicone? covering. It has chipped or just worn out, such that it now is ruined at the top part and now catches on my pocket etc.I have yet to take it into an apple store and see if they will replace it.Were it not for this issue, I would give it 4.5 stars, knocking the .5 off for the tacky yet slippery surface that others have mentioned. (if you prop it up on a firm surface, it will slowly slide)

    I love it

    I get lots of compliments on this case from people. The white is STUNNING and doesn't attract dirt or marks, somehow if feels both smooth and grippy at the same time. How did they do that? Great battery too.

    Does the job but case looks very worn

    Does the job, keeps the phone topped up nicely (wouldn't need it if the battery life on the phone went longer than half a day!)

    The charger itself has started to tear really badly. I' got it for Christmas last year and noticed tears starting in October. Since then there are large sections of the outer skin that have torn away and the top left section is completely torn down as far as the sound controllers. It looks awful - really trashy and by the time it happened I was out of warranty by literally days. So angry with Apple over the quality and the fact that they can't Fix the issue.

    Most of the reviews posted appear from last year and possibly relate to newly purchased items - wonder how everyone feels about their pack a year later!!!

    Good case but having reception issues

    I’ve had this case for about 5 months and it has been great so far apart from one issue. For the past month I will randomly lose reception, either the bar says ‘searching’ or ‘no service’. I’ve ruled out that this is a SIM card problem and found that if I remove my phone from the case it usually solves the reception problems, until I tried this I was left in a few situations with no service when I really needed it. I really like not having to worry about battery life, but if I can’t use my phone what is the point of having battery anyway?

    Apple products wear out quickly!

    I purchased this battery case around May 2016 and have had it a little over a year and a half. During this time, as you may expect, I've used the case daily with my iPhone 6. After about a year of usage, the case was completely warn out. Corners are worn out, the back is worn out. The rubbery parts are tearing off. If you've ever had the old iphone bumpers that apple made, you'll know what I'm talking about. The location with the serial number is also worn out and the apple store geniuses couldn't figure out what the serial number is since I never registered it.

    At the time of purchase I chose to go with an Apple product instead of a third party one and now I regret it. The case looks awful and the only reason I'm still using it is because it still provides 6-8 hours of juice and without it my iPhone 6 would be useless with its 1 hour battery that it is left with.

    I'd suggest buying a cheaper alternative from a third party provider, which I bet will last longer.

    Does the Job

    I have no complaints about this case. I moved to the regular iphone, and the only thing I missed about the bigger model was the battery life. I have tried other plastic battery cases, but none of those allow "information" sync with the case on, nor last longer than a few charges before they start messing up. This case isn't too bulky, has great grip, and adds about 75% on a full charge. I bought this new for half the price on another website, and love it so far. No comment about durability of the silicone as I've only had it for a week, but I needed a battery case, and this delivers.

    Excellent product stylish and functional

    I work 12 hour shifts and was forever having to carry charger cables in my work bag to keep my iPhone 6 adequately charged through the day.
    Since buying this smart charging case my phone has not once gone low on battery. To keep my phone and smart case at optimum performance I allow them both to run themselves completely down to the point my phone switches itself off once a fortnight. I give the case a gentle wipe over with a soft white cloth dampened in warm water and it is still as clean as the day I bought it.

    Fell apart in under 11 months

    While the battery life was fine, when considering the steep price, its durability issues have made it awful. About 8 months in, the 4 corners began developing small divits when an impurity in the case ate away at it. Then 10 and a half months after buying it and roughly 120 removals later, the top corner seperated. In a matter of days the line worked its way from the top left hand corner down half an inch to the silence toggle hole in the case.

    Waste of money

    It was great, I would unplug my phone at 7am and it would last until about 9pm before hitting 99%
    That lasted about a month. Now I find myself charging my phone mid afternoon. Such a waste of money.
    And yes, I let it die and charged it fully when I first bought it.

    AMAZING

    5 Stars 100%. This product in the world!! It feels awesome in your hand and it's so smooth. The batterypack is great for me because I'm always in my phone so I use my battery a lot. This really helps if your one of those people who go on their phone a and do really nothing and then when you go to use it it's dead. I love this case so much!!!

    Functionality- Good, Durability- Bad

    At first I thought this case was great. I liked the design and functionality of the case and battery. However, after a few short months the rubber of the case began to chip away. Less than 6 months later, my case is very torn on all 4 corners. For such an expensive product, you would hope it would be more durable. I cant say that it is really protecting my phone anymore.

    Love this case

    I purchased this case at the beginning of 2016, so I have had it for over a year now. This case has been a lifesaver for me because my battery would drain so fast. I work 12 hour shifts and my phone would always die during my shift. I bought this case and found that my battery would still be at 100% by the end of the 12 hours. About 6 months into having this case I started having slight charging issues like a number of other people have mentioned. I remedied this by buying the Anker charging port on Amazon, which is advertised as a smart charger. Since using this I have had zero issues with charging my phone with this case on it. The case doesn't look as perfect as it did the day I bought it, but it is holding up really well. Definitely recommend buying this case, just make sure you use a good charger to charge it.

    Good battery performance, unacceptable build quality

    As others here have highlighted, this case features a silicon coating that is highly likely to peel off and tear after 8-12 months of normal, day-to-day use. As confirmed by an Apple Store employee, no repair options exist for repairing defects in the silicon covering.

    I should also point out, that the battery inside the case works wonderfully, and continues to be the only way I can get "all-day use" out of my iPhone 6.

    Bottom line: this case provides great boost to battery life, but I was very dissatisfied with the build quality. I very much hope Apple will use a different material when constructing their cases in the future. After 1 year of use, I would not purchase this case again.

    Good Product

    Overall works well and helps for battery with excessive use of phone. Reason for 4 stars is because the time it takes to charge your case to 100% is around 3 hours which is only convenient for overnight charging. Good product overall.

    Doesn't hold up

    This case would be great if it gets an update. First, I feel like it killed my iPhone battery and I had to replace it. Now the silicon is ripping off leaving plastic shell underneath showing, like a lot of it, about 15% of the silicon has now ripped off. It's not like I'm doing anything extreme, just in and out of my pocket. Also, pulling it out of you pocket it grabs the liner and pulls it out sticking to it. So, version 2 needs a new material that holds up and doesn't grip everything else in my pocket to take with it.

    Apple needs to rethink design.

    I like this battery case. I specifically like that the iPhone displays the battery percentage of both the phone and case in the Notification Center. However - the design needs to be changed. The bulky battery on the back of the case is strange. Also the rubber texture on the case gets easily destroyed. Drop the case once and the rubber gets dented and peels off. For a case this expensive - the aesthetic appeal should be top notch.

    Other battery cases have designs that are much slimmer and more protective. Apple please rethink this battery case design and make the texture of the case more impact friendly. At least put a bumper around the sides of the case.

    Nice, but could do better

    The title and 3 stars are not based on function - this battery case works well and adds a good level of impact protection as well.
    I like it and I'm using it and it looks good.

    However...
    It keeps your iPhone battery at 100% until the case itself has drained to 0% - this is neither good for the battery in the iPhone, nor the battery in the case.
    I'd like to see an App with this product that allows me to charge both the iPhone and battery case to a user defined maximum.
    Plus allow me to predetermine the minimum charge the battery case will drain to - all in the name of battery life.

    It's obviously high quality, but I just think it's a bit mediocre for an Apple product. It could be made by anyone for the level of cleverness within it.

    Amazing

    I bought this case in white about a month ago, and it's been great. It keep my battery at 100% most of the day. At first I was scared to get the case dirty because I got the white one. But because of the material, when it would get dirty, it just wipes right off.
