    Sheds its outer skin like a snake

    • Written by PAUL H from Seal Beach

    Like many other customers, I have experienced the shedding of the outer layer on my red iPhone 7 battery case. The battery charger is great, but if quality is not consistent across the entire product, then the product itself is no better than its flaws. Anything displaying an Apple logo should represent the quality expectations associated with the brand. This case will make you wonder if perhaps, secretly, it is a 3rd party product wearing the logo of a brand it doesn't deserve to wear... while your trust for Apple products also begins to shed. 5 stars for the charging hardware and capabilities... reduced to 2 stars for the overall product quality and durability.

    Not Worth Your Money

    • Written by Charlotte W from Sneads Ferry

    Although a great product when in working order, the charger on this case completely snapped off within 9 months of purchase. This apparently is not covered under the 1 year limited warranty.

    IOS update crashed it...

    • Written by Shannon R from Greenville

    I have had this case since July and it worked great up until the
    IOS update. Now both the phone as well as the case drains, doesn’t
    Hold a charge as well as difficulty charging. It was fantastic before
    update now It’s just is junk.

    Eh...

    • Written by Crystal B from Springfield

    I thought this was going to be an amazing case when I bought it, but I quickly learned that it's not worth it.
    There's no way to turn the case off, so it's constantly charging, unless you lift the case off the charging port.
    And this case makes call quality super bad!!! On FaceTime and regular phone calls, I have to lift the phone out of the case in order for anyone to hear me. Otherwise, when the phone is in the case, I have to scream right into the speaker port for anyone on the other line to hear me, which is incredibly frustrating.
    The only reason I got the case was because no other charging case has a lightning plug on the case, so it's the only way I can charge my phone and listen to music at the same time since I have the iPhone 7, and having a charging case is basically necessary since a full charge barely lasts 8 hours.

    Designed by Jonny Ive's intern

    • Written by Matthew B from Arlington

    Here's what is nice about this case. It extends the battery life for more than one day. It has built in software that shows the battery level of the case along with the phone on your lock screen and Notification Center.

    Now the bad parts. The hole for the headphone jack is so small that it only fits the iPhone headphones. I have tried many others, even extensions and nothing fits in the cramped space. The second design flaw is that the lightning port has an angled metal edge on the receptical. This causes most third party accessories to not make contact with the charging contacts. The cord feels like it's connected but actually isn't.

    This has to be one of Apple's worst designs.

    Nice case but poor quality

    • Written by Ronan M from Kiltimagh

    Battery is good, silicone case feels good but is very poor quality. Started peeling and chipping even though it's never been dropped or damaged. Got a replacement from Apple it happened again. Not worth the price.

    Ultimately not functional as an every day case.

    • Written by Jordan C from Milpitas

    This is a great case. It has a great look and feel, not everyone is a fan of "the hump" but it feels comfortable in the hand. However, with only 2365 mAh battery capacity and no button or functionality to turn this case off it is always constantly charging your iPhone until it runs out of battery, giving you battery when you don't need it and effectively wasting battery as charging it between 0-20% and 80-100% takes more to charge per percent than charging it between 20-80%. This was obviously a product Apple rushed to market which makes no sense considering how long battery cases have been around. Maybe they'll get the third version right for the iPhone 7 successor, but for now I'll have to stick with Mophie or any of the other tens of battery cases that do have an on/off switch.
