    Eat Up Battery

    I use this for a work phone, I rarely use it and use stand-by most of the time. Whether I have the battery pack on or off, the phone died in 4-5 days. No difference on having this thing. In fact it kills the battery faster since it has to interface with the phone at all times. Not a good buy.

    Great functionality, bad workmanship

    Overall, this case serves its purpose functionality-wise. It basically gives you a full extra charge and you don't have to stop to charge nearly as much. This is the only reason I gave it 2 stars... My issue is the workmanship. After only a week of use, the silicone is peeling off in all 4 corners of the case as well as all 4 corners of the battery bump. I keep my phone clean and baby it, because it's an expensive investment. After only a week of use, it looks pretty rough, and I can only imagine how it will look in 6 months. Very light usage should not cause this to happen in one week's time. For $100, I expect more from Apple and will be visiting an Apple Store to try to return or exchange.

    BATTERY

    I think it should make it more resistant, I have one that not even a year and is already breaking in the internal and external, further increase the battery charge

    Rubbish silicon shell

    Bad:
    The silicon falls apart like a skin of a dead man.
    Siri can't hear me.

    Good:
    Very protective and useful.

    Best Case Ever

    This is most likely the best case I have ever had. The 'hump' on the back is actually great. It helps with grip for a usually slippy case. This case also does not get hot while charging the iPhone or charging the case itself. This case has left my phone at 100% for an entire day, without the case fully dying. Do note that my phone is connected to an Apple Watch, so that is really impressive. The case is not really lint-attracted but it does attach to some. This case was worth every penny.

    PERFECT!

    This case is a life saver. I can use my phone all day and still have power to spare at the end. There are no switches to turn on and off. It's simply trouble free. It's smooth to touch and sleekly designed. And it plugs in using the lightening cord. I used a Mophie before which was a disaster. The case fell apart. The connection needed its own cord and the battery power didn't last.
    Typical to Apple, they wait until a product can be designed and produced well before putting it on the market.
    I have been using it for over a year now and it has held up very well.
    I would recommend this to everyone.

    WORST CASE

    bought this case for $100. I was very happy the first month I had it. After that month I would charge it all night and my phone would die in an hour. This is the worst $100 dollars ive ever spent in my life. very upset and in disgrace. DONT RECOMMEND ANYONE TO BUY IT!!

    Love It

    I wanted one of these, but bought an aftermarket one instead because it was cheaper and had a bit more battery storage capacity. Bad decision. It came apart when I was installing it. This battery case has sufficient power, provides good protection, and works as advertised. Just what you would expect from a genuine Apple product.

    Battery killer

    At first I found it to be the best product ever, however now, after using it for a while, it has destroyed the original battery (due to the continous charging) leaving me still with just one battery of this battery case. Great idea, however longer term not a great choice. Needs some more innovation to make it work.

    Piece of garbage

    Battery on this phone is the worst I've encountered. I'm on power save and I've lost 4% typing this. Apple product is trash!

    Excellent in many ways

    Bought this battery pack about 9 months ago with my first iphone because I was frustrated with my previous smart phones running out of power when travelling. This battery case more than doubles the usable time. The case can also be charged seperately which is handy. It is significantly heavier than other protective cases, but I quite like the more solid feel in my hand and pocket - it won't slip out. Chose black because I thought the white might get dirty. However when my husband upgraded his iphone a few months later, we bought a white battery pack so it would be easier to tell the phones appart. The white does not get dirty at all. We can swap cases if one of us has forgotten to charge up. I love the way you can charge the case and phone in one hit, and that the phone displays charging status of both.
    I'm hoping that the skin feel coating will not break down and go tacky in a year like every other piece of equipment (not Apple)I have owned, with similar coating did. The only thing to keep in mind is the extra thickness of the case means that some plugs don't fit: eg, a non Apple lightning plug and Bose head phone jacks which are L shaped.

    IPhone battery case

    Excellent piece of equipment. The case keeps the phone at 100% and slowly drains the case. I use my phone quite heavily and have no concerns at being powered throughout the day. The fact that the standard headphone works without an extender and the lightening charge cable is standard is a bonus. The case is nice to handle, the battery lump is not an issue, I should have bought this a long time ago. Swipe down shows the state of both batteries at a glance.

    I understand that unless a battery case is approved and tested by apple there is a risk of the phone battery being fried! That was from a repairer who has seem many a ruined phone.

    Poor quality

    at first when i first got it i say woah the surface is smooth then after 2 weeks the silicone starts to peel off in every 4 corners then it became very stick y when im using it but when i don't use it for about 30 minutes it becomes oily im sick of it when i put it down i always put the phone with the screen facing down the table just to save the case from absorbing all the lints! sick of it. very time it absorbs lint. besides the case is hard to clean. and removing lint is like removing a dirt from a scotch tape and this product doesn't deserve its price. besides the case discharging so fast like i'm not using it but it discharged 10% the whole night and the material too is so poor its peels of each of the four corner. everytime i look at it it feels that this case is just a cheap one!

    Amazing case

    The case really saves my life. It is compatible with the iphone and it honestly gives me so much battery. Plenty is the right word.
    Now the only issue with the case is that it makes my phone a bit bulky which is expected. The white color which I own kind of turned yellowish but after a nice cleaning with solution it goes back to white. I suggest sticking to the black if you do not want to clean it once a month.
    I wish apple makes a case that is slimmer in size but still contains some juice/battery which will make my life heaven.

    Love it....but gets dirty

    I got a case for my iPhone 6s in the color white. The first day it was clean and very useful and charged perfectly. But, it is the third day I have had it and it already is dirty! We tried Mr.Clean, water, soap and nothing came off. I would recommend to get the color charcoal grey. It got all dirty from the oils in my skin. I still love the battery part and it is good material, and not too heavy

    Work ok but better cases out there

    I like how thin this case is compared to a lot of other battery phone cases and also like that you can use the lightening cable to charge it, one less cable to carry with me when I travel.

    But I would recommend researching cheaper cases. Even though the cases may be a little bulkier and require a different cable, you'll get a lot more battery life out of it unless you are using the phone non stop.

    Biggest thing I hate about this case is there is no on/off switch. It continually charges the phone 24/7. The other cases I've used you can turn the case off and only turn it on when the battery life is low. Sometimes I'll go a couple hours without using my phone but the case continues to charge it non-stop draining the battery in the case for when I actually need it. If I'm not using the phone until later in the day and draining the battery then I would like the case reserve to charge the battery then. If they aren't going to have an on/off switch then they need to design the case so that it won't charge the phone if the phone is 100% charged.

    Another issue I have with this case that it doesn't always charge. Sometimes I have to take the phone out of the case and reinsert it to get the case to charge right.

    As others have mentioned the headphones won't work in this case without an extender. I have an extender that fits this case from my previous battery case but for the price of this case the extender should be an included accessory.

    I'd recommend buying the lifeproof battery case over this one. You can get it for less money than the apple case costs, you'll get a more extended battery life since it has an on/off switch as well as a headphone jack extender and it will also waterproof your phone

    Great Battery but case chips

    Have the case for a year and I love the battery but the silicon case has started to chip away.

    Perfect for me

    I read all of the reviews and still purchased this smart case. I love it.

    1) Looks: I don't find the case ugly. See it in person before you judge. The bump is much more subtle than the pictures. The case feels great in everyday use.
    2) Material: The case is so soft and comfortable, I can handle the small amounts of lint it attracts.
    3) Battery: I am notorious for having a dying phone. No more! Case battery by day, phone battery by night, no charge required. (Not even close to dying from 7am to 2am)
    4) Apple ecosystem: I would never use a case that does not use a lightning cable. This is my first battery case. Super easy, convenient.
    5) Weight: Again, try it. You'll love it or you won't. I like the weight.

    Conclusion: I understand it's subjective, but I love it.

    Con: Price
