    Really want to like this case

    • Written by Lisa B from Washington

    I really wanted to like this case. Yes, it does extend the battery life of my phone. I only use it on days I know I'm not going to be near a charger. I love that this is compatible with all Apple cords, chargers and earbuds.

    But I would love it better with an on/off switch. I think the battery depletes itself faster because it doesn't. I use this when traveling on the metro and walking around all day. I listen to music, read books and use the navigation app... the total battery life of the case depletes so much faster than if I just used my phone in low battery mode. (BTW, I tried turning my phone to low battery mode to see if the case battery would last longer....nope).

    On the next model, please add a way to turn the battery case on/off. Thank you.

    When I first got this case I loved it, since I’ve owned other charging cases, as well as the external ones. I always forget to charge them so when I found out this one used the lightning cable I was sold. It lasted me about 3 months and then made my phone lock button stop working and then the reading on the battery case was clearly off. After taking my phone out of the case to reset my phone, my phone still displayed charging. The battery case would then not charge. I left it a day and plugged just the case in and it suddenly charged. I was happy so put the phone back in the case, only this time it didn’t read that the case was on. I brought the case to Apple to have the Genius Bar look at it and the guy basically told me that they had to order me a replacement one. I went and picked it up and it was quite clearly a refurbished one that smelt strongly of some disinfectant. I’m slightly disappointed in the quality of the case and even more so on the actions of Apple. It would have been nice to be told it would be a refurbished case up front.

    Does it's purpose, needs more improvement, coatings need fast improvement.

    I've been using this for a little over a month and overall it's soso. I'm disappointed in the color red, it's not as deep of a red as I thought it would be, already after a month the coating is starting to wear from sliding into and out of my pocket. The case charges extremely fast, and I like that if the case is charging and fully charges the light turns from red to green. With this case I can go a full day using my iPhone, if not the phone never will last the whole day with moderate use.
