    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

    Charger case gets stuck in my hair

    The only bad thing is that It's gets stuck in my hair because I have long hair and the case has a weird feel on the outside of it .. other than that I do love the charger case because it's an apple product and I can use the same iPhone charger and it does help to have extra charge through out the day

    Better than I thought it would be

    When I bought my iPhone 6S, I decided to get this case instead of another Mophie case like I had been using. It works as advertised so far, and I haven't experienced any major negatives. I have noticed that the case where the volume buttons are doesn't fit quite right, which suggests the tolerances on the QC side aren't up to par yet. Having oily skin, I find myself having to constantly clean the case as it is a fingerprint magnet, but it's not a huge deal.

    Overall, I'm happy with the case, though I do wish it had an on/off switch.

    One last note: I'm disturbed by users' comments that seek to discount other users who have experienced issues with their battery cases. Just because some of us have no problems does not mean that others aren't experiencing issues. We should keep that in mind before we tacitly call other people liars without knowing anything about their experiences.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Works great; a little grippy on pocket entry and exit

    TL;DR - iPhone too slippery, case too grippery.

    I hate permanent iPhone cases of any description. What's the point of spending millions of dollars and hours designing a thin beautiful object, admiring it for 5 minutes and then shoving it into a plastic box that makes it many times thicker and less pretty?

    For my first 6 years of iPhone ownership I never used a case, preferring to bask in the beauty of the 3G and 4S design. Then I got the iPhone 6 which was beautifully smooth but acted more like a wet bar of soap than a handheld piece of electronic genius should. And no, before you say anything, the camera wasn't enough of a protrusion to make a difference.

    So, I swallowed my purist pride and got a QuadLock case - at least if I had to have a case I'd get something practical that worked on an armband, bike and car mount (and a bonus - it was designed in my home town of Melbourne). It added the right amount of grip, protection, and heaps of practicality.

    I travel overseas a lot and use my iPhone heaps more while away, so a battery case was in order for my trips. Although aesthetically unusual, I could see the practical benefits of the Apple Battery Case design. Sliding the phone in and out of the case doesn't feel like you're going to snap the case or a break a piece off the phone as some single piece cases do (QuadLock included).

    The only criticism I have is the amount of grip from the rubbery body. It's great in my hand but a bugger to get in and out of my pocket - which I do so many times per day that I just realised I may have some dependancy issues. Maybe it's because I tend to wear tight stretch jeans (another life choice to ponder), but I'm often turning the pocket lining out with the phone, and sometimes my wallet along with it. So, the iPhone 6 has gone from too slippy to too grippy. Maybe the iPhone 8 will be a bit thicker with a bigger battery and some grippy elements so I can enjoy the original design of the phone without the need for a case to make it stay in my hand and last a little longer.

    Good battery case not great protection

    If you are looking to extend your battery life this will be awesome for you. I have had mine for about 3 months with no issues with my phone lasting all day. I am a very heavy data and phone user for my job. This case will last me until 8 at night on a single charge. I really don't know when I would need more battery life than that. My day starts at 5 and ends around 6 to 7 every day and if I know I will be out longer I can charge it for around 30 minutes and I'm good the rest of the night. I charge it every night so it's full in the morning. I use Bluetooth, location services, and run all kind of apps and music through out my day. On the protection side this is my only complaint. Not great, it really does not protect as well as some of the other cases on the market. I used the otter box extended battery case and it was great. The only problem is that the charge port stopped working after 9 months. The case also cracked along the speaker part. With that said you had to carry a adapter to use the 2.5 jack, and you did not have access to the lighting port. I never had a issue protecting my phone with it like I did with the apple case. Having my phone 2 years with out ever replacing a screen, and having phones for the past 20 years I never have had cracked a screen. This was my first time to have a cracked screen after switching to the apple case. It was a very small crack but I have never worried about this because I have always had a case like life proof or otterbox. This might have been a limited situation but it's hard for me to give it 5 stars because of this one issue I have had.

    Now I have a broken phone

    This phone does exactly what it promises, extends the life of your battery. But along with my extremely well charged phone, I now have a broken phone. The area between the battery and the top of the case is extremely flimsy and lax, so much so that the frame has bent on my phone causing the screen to pop off. This is a problem with the design due to the hard nature of the battery. Any stress on the phone is immediately transferred to the upper corner rather than being dispersed throughout. I now have a $299 fee to replace the phone in addition to the $99 I spent on the case. DO NOT BUY.

    Battery Case poor performace

    Battery drains faster when using the case, the benefit is marginal, thus, spending money in this item is worthless!

    Helpful only in the first few weeks

    I bought it before a month. The problems started last week. It does let me charge iPhone at all! I have to remove it charge my iPhone. Sometimes it works, but the problem when I really need it and it doesn't work I would feel very disappointed.

    Purchase if you want a WORSE battery life

    I purchased this case for a long trip to Newcastle, making sure I would have enough battery life to last me the entire trip. I left apple reading store thinking this is great I've got an awesome case here, and yes that's true in some aspects. The case has protected the phone from a few small drops! But in theory it's completely wrecked my original battery. I have only had the phone 4-5 months now and the battery lasts me a total of 1 hour max after the case is drained! DO NOT BUY!

    Apple, you really need to change the design is this case ASAP. We need to be able to turn the charger off through either the case it's self or the phone so we don't have to RUIN our battery life on our original phones.. not happy with the result this case has given me....

    Solid battery case.

    - Apple Smart Case means that it charges faster (if iPhone is below 90%).
    - Good Fit
    - About 80% more Battery

    - The Silicon case falls part quickly. The edges peeled within a month, and the surface was sticky.

    Apple replaced this one for me and the second battery case was better for about a month. Then the same issues.

    Excellent case!!

    So far I have to say the case is very nice. Having extra battery is so much easier than looking for a place to charge while on the run. I cant say it is any heavier or bigger than a lot of other cases. I have seen reviews of people complaining of its weight and size but my Otterbox Defender was bigger in every dimension and the weight is not a problem. I use an Encase belt clip holster for the smart case so the weight does not bother me. Very comparable to feel of the Otterbox I had. I like having the battery life in the notification center and being able to use my lightning cable is priceless. I did a sync with iTunes with the case on and no issues of course. My only suggestion for change on this product is give it a little more protection however I am used to having an Otterbox so maybe I am just paranoid.

    Love except for this one thing...

    Really pleased with this case overall. Here's my breakdown and a little about me and my regular phone usage/wear and tear.

    Case size/bulk: Before ordering this case I read many reviews as I was concerned about the bulk of the case (not just this case in general but all external battery cases.) After reading many that it's actually a rather pleasing design to hold I went ahead and took the plunge. I'm a rather petit girl at only 5'1"- the importance of telling you this is that I have very small hands. At first when I put the case on I found it to be rather heavy, but after only a few hours of use I now also agree that the design is very pleasing to hold

    Battery life: I'm your typical 22 year old, meaning I spend way too much time on social media. I've found the cases battery life lasted much longer than I had even expected and that's before dipping into the phones actual charge.

    Ruggedness: Once again being that my phone is in my hand I have a tendency to drop it more often than others. This is where the cases only fault for me lies. Upon one drop (probably about 4ft off the ground) the case lost chunks of the outer silicon. After using the same $35 case for over a year and it showing less damage than even a Lifeproof I had for 2 months did, I was very disappointed with how scuffed up this case got with one fall (literally on the second day of using the case). While I do not plan to walk with my phone in my hand anymore now, the scuffing is just something I wish I would've been aware of before using the case.

    VERY pleased (so far)

    It's the slimmest battery case I've found; works great for me for during the week heavy use times. People complain about the "hump"; you can hardly see it and it is what it is. I'd rather have that than carry around a 12volt truck battery and jumper cables! No issues with it "sticking" in my pocket as may complain about, no issues with it collecting excessive lint; it just works as intended. People complain that you can not read battery levels,.. YOU CAN! From your home screen (IOS 10) swipe right and there's a widget there that will read the battery levels on both the phone and the case! As far as "cosmetics" I use this weekdays and if I'm going out I simply swap the case! As it draws from the case first, chances are if I swap the case for the evening my phone is pretty well charged! I've yet to see a high end "fashion case" with a battery built in; this case may not be high style but it's not ugly! It looks and feels like it would afford decent fall protection. My "guesstimate" is that with average to moderate use I can easily get 24 hours ++++ out of it,... that's plenty for me,.. sooner or later you have to recharge any of them!

    It could use a few design tweaks but overall it works great!

    The case is very convenient to use and greatly increases the battery life of the phone over the course of a day. I also really like that it uses a non recessed lightning port to charge the case meaning it works with all of your existing lightning cords and the Apple Lightning Dock. The only things I can say I don't like are A: you can pretty much only use Apple's EarPods with this case on your phone as the headphone jack opening on the case is super narrow. B: You can't turn the case off, it is always charging your phone... I just feel paranoid about my phone trickle charging all day long C: And probably my biggest complaint is the rubber they used to make the outside of the case wears out quickly. When you first get the case it has a nice soft matte rubber texture but after only about a week of sliding the case in and out of a pocket the rubber finish wears down to a slick shiny texture that is not as easy to grip and feels much cheaper.
