    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!!!

    I recommend you to not buy this.

    So I bought this item and after a few months it's already falling apart... I'm so angry that I paid 99 dollars on this and I don't recommend you to buy this ,if you working in apple and you see this please contact me.

    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.

    Game changer

    For me, it's a game changer. I am hugely OCS about battery state, heavily using my iPhone for any kinds of business and personal communication conceivable, reading web any free minute traveling the city on foot & subway etc. That drains the battery really fast. Formerly I used to use iPhone with lightning cable going all the way down to my shoulder bag where a powerbank was, not really comfortable. Now it's covered with its own powerbank that works fully automatically. Nice!
    You just HAVE to try and hold it in your hand for a while, for me it took a couple of hours to get used to it)) Moreover, I somehow like the way it weighs down, it just feels... solid & robust. I have the white one a white iPhone, looks solid yet light. Mystical.

    On/off?

    Seriously? The only way to turn it off is to remove the case? Idiotic design. Wouldn't have ordered had I known that! This had better keep my phone charged up on this international trip for all the photos I plan to take!

    does its job

    i hate the fact i had to buy this (despite multiple resets my phone battery is still erratic and shuts off at 30%)...so i took 1 star off for spite.

    however, with the case, i get an additional 5 hours of use time before it goes to the phone battery, essentially extending total battery time to about 7 hrs (5hrs case battery life and a dismal 2 hrs phone battery life). the phone battery does show a constant charging icon but i have not noticed the phone being warm, the 2 batteries just work seamlessly together. you dont have to download or do anything special other than have the case on your phone.

    The white case does attract lint at first but after a few days use seems to have diminished perhaps due to the layer of protective grease its already built up just by using it.

    apple headphones fit smoothly and can be easily plugged in or removed, its just plugs very deeply into the socket thats all, no additional extender needed. the case also has a lightening charge port at the bottom, so charging is just the same as well. so again seamless.

    the added weight and bulk is not noticeable after a few days, I'm just glad my phone can last me through the whole day now!

    Best case ever

    I was a little nervous putting this on my wishlist for Christmas, based off of the mixed reviews. But I absolutely love it. I personally love the feel of it and the weight is really nice. I used to have to charge my phone twice a day and now by the end of a very full and long day my phone still has so much battery left. I highly recommend this!!!

    It's okay --- but I have 2 issues!

    It's GREAT to have that battery attached and comforting knowing it can last all day of pretty heavy usage. But this is far from perfect. I've had mine since it came out late January.

    1) the rubber coating chips off easily. This will start happening in 2-3 months and get progressively worse. If you have the white one, then it's very easy to see as the internal thing is hard gray plastic. If you have the dark grey case, it blends in and is harder to see. But I would see it's VERY disappointing Apple would release a product that doesn't last more than a few months before it starts looking ragged. I can only imagine what it will look like after a year.

    2) Software is VERY buggy!! --- so about every other day I need to reboot my phone because the software that reads / monitors / displays the remaining battery life just stops working. The phone should always be 100% as long as the external battery has juice. Sometime I look at my phone and it says, for example, 63%...... yet my external battery is, say, 80%. Essentially the software will just stop working and the only way to get it going again is to re-boot the phone.

    I'm giving this an overall 2 stars ---- only because this is a better solution than other 3rd party batteries. But it's definitely not up to Apple quality standards both in hardware and software. And there's NO WAY this lasts 2 years without being totally beat to heck and looking ugly.

    Uniquely Different

    I didn't know what to expect when buying the cover. I am really happy to buy it as it has helped me a lot. I would recommend this cover to all iPhone users.
