    Great Case but Take off for Software Updates..

    This case is of a great quality, and it adds up a whole lot of extra battery life; feels great in hand.

    WARNING: do not try to update IOs by connecting iPhone to a computer through this case. Always connect directly.

    My iPhone 8 kept crashing during installation of new iOS through the computer, until I took the case off.

    Best Case + Battery

    This case tends to have some issues from time to time but I have had many battery cases in the past (mophie and many others). This is definitely the best one. It is a little expensive but I assure you the expense is worth it due to free one year of apple care. If anything happens to the case then apple care takes care of it.

    Charging battery aside, the feel to the case is very nice and not slippery. It has some sort of material that is comfortable and easy to hold. It does not weigh much and it is the best case I have ever owned. Wherever, however, whenever my phone falls and hits the ground I'm not worried for even a second. This case handles falls very well and it does not get damaged or scuffed. I have had my phone for about 2 years now and it looks completely brand new without a scratch due to this case.

    Not Worth Your Money

    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.

    Really want to like this case

    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.

    Even with its faults I love it.

    As a long time Mophie user I was so excited when I first learned Apple made this battery case. My first Smart phone battery case from Apple lasted a little less than a year. I was then faced with the decision of whether to go back to Mophie (which never broke/died) or buyer another one from Apple. In my opinion, you just can’t beat the grip/feel of the Apple battery case. So, I bought another one. I’ve had this one for about 6 months. No major problems, but I do worry about the case killing my phone battery. But, then I remind myself that I probably won’t keep any phone for a few years so it’s not that big of a deal. And if it does kill my phone battery too soon I’ll just go to an Apple store and replace the phone battery. My point is that the case is just THAT good. Even with its flaws I love it more than my Mophie which never caused me the same concerns. The design is on par with Apple products. The case may not last years, and I do wish Apple would work on correcting the flaws, but I LOVE the case so much I can’t go without one!!

    Works well!

    I purchased this with a Red iPhone 7. I've had the combination for nearly a year with no issues whatsoever. I usually run my phone in "low power mode." In that configuration my battery lasts for nearly 2 full days. Yes, there's a bulge on the back but the battery has got to go somewhere. I really like having to use just a lightning cable to charge the whole setup. That makes it very convenient. I put a clear screen protector on the front and voila! The phone has been dropped a couple of times from over 5 feet with no damage to the phone at all. Thanks!

    Great case, best I’ve had, with only one complaint.

    I’ll start by saying I’ve had this case for a little over a year and I will NEVER choose another case. This case is everything you could ever want in an iPhone case, it looks great, offers great protection, and essentially doubles the battery life.
    It is made from a very grippy rubber so It doesn’t easily slip in your hand or off the surface that it’s resting on.
    The additional battery life is unbelievable, and I haven’t noticed a decay in the phones battery as a result of using the case, as some other brands of “smart cases” are want to do.
    The phone protection is deceivingly good, I’ve dropped my phone face down, back down, and on all corners multiple times and the phone has come out without so much as a scratch.
    However, the only issue I’ve had is that this case has begun to deteriorate; no doubt after all the falls it has taken. The top corners have begun to fall apart and peel back so every time I put it in or take it out of my pocket the corners get caught on my jeans and peel off more and more. This has also happened on the middle left side of the case as well.

    So, all things considered, for $100 I’ve been more than satisfied with the case, it could just stand to last a little longer.

    IOS update crashed it...

    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.

    Amazing!

    I've had this case since June (2017) and it has worked great! It did survive a fall to concrete. I was buying this case and I was worried based on what people have wrote about it, saying that after about a month, it stopped working, but I've had this for 5 months and it still works like it should. I use it everyday when I am in school and need to charge it after a long day. My phone goes from 14% to 100% in less than 1 hour. It is very quick. I recommend getting this case. It's perfect if you use your phone a lot!

    Great Color and Power!!

    I love the color of this case! It's very eye catching, and adds a good rubber grip to the matte black iPhone 7. I thought about getting the (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 7 but I hated the white on the front, so this was a great way to get the red I liked, the black front, and extra power! The case works as one with your iPhone 7 so no need to have a separate Power button for the case, which eliminates all sorts of extra buttons, lights, and weight. It's very thin and gives the appearance of having a simple silicone case on. The iPhone sinks nicely inside the case allowing you to place it face down on any flat surface(even with a thick privacy glass screen protector on).

    Great Case but it has a downfall

    Love the case. At first the color was too bright, I'm thinking it would be same color to the red IPhone but its brighter. I dislike that its no on or off button to the case your phone stays charging. Hopefully I don't have battery probs in the near future. I recommend that you buy if your always on the go like myself.

    Eh...

    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.

    SuperSlick!

    I was shopping for power cases when i saw this slick Apple iPhone 7 Smart Battery Case for my phone. It feels good and smells like the interior of a brand new car. It delivers on its promise and is fun to use making the iPhone a great travel companion.

    My phone battery has never lasted so long.

    I work 12 hour days and before I had this case I had to charge my phone throughout the day. Now, I'm able to go all day at 100%. I've had it off the charger for about 14 hours now and my phone battery is at 100% and the case battery is at 27%. I'm impressed.

    Great product, but...

    I have used this case for over a year now and I love almost everything about it. The feel is wonderful and very comfortable. It is still compact enough and I can't say enough about the ability to have a longer runtime with my phone. My only issue is that is does kill the battery over time. My husband was using a Mophie and never turned it off, he recently had to replace his battery because his phone would die within minutes after the case battery was depleted. He brought it to apple and was told this was because he never turned off the Mophie case, and therefor ran down the max number of charges his iPhone was capable of. My phone has started to die shortly after the case is depleted, and I am using the apple case. I believe it lasted much longer than my husbands, but I wish they had worked this out before releasing the product. I am upgrading to the iPhone 7, but I am not sure I am willing to purchase another battery case at this time since they have not fixed this issue.

    Best battery case I've had!

    This is by far the best battery case I've used yet! I really don't like how there's some battery cases that add a full pound or more, and also add a big bulge to the back. I love the feel of the silicon and felt and the hump on the back - which I thought would be kind of weird - is surprisingly comfortable to hold, I don't find it as awkward as others say! The functionality of the case is amazing for me, I used to get about 7-8 hours on a full charge with my iPhone 7 and now I get about 15-17 hours! The single lightning port at the bottom also makes it feel surprisingly smooth. This is one of the best cases I've gotten yet, worth the money! Although If I had to make one suggestion, it would be to change the battery status symbol to show whether the battery is actually charging or the case is being used.

    Best case

    I got this case the other day. Just love it! Kept my phone charged all day long, with lots of use. 100% all day long.

    Great case

    Great battery case. I can go two days between charges as long as I'm not using gps. You have to clean the speaker ducts often if you keep the case in your pocket because lint will build up and make it impossible for others to hear you while on the phone. Other then that it works as described.

    Great case

    Works like a charm. Automatically switches from the case to the phone battery. More than doubled my battery life. Looks fine & good grip. Adds a bit of extra weight, but good protection foe the phone.
