    Does the job but case looks very worn

    Does the job, keeps the phone topped up nicely (wouldn't need it if the battery life on the phone went longer than half a day!)

    The charger itself has started to tear really badly. I' got it for Christmas last year and noticed tears starting in October. Since then there are large sections of the outer skin that have torn away and the top left section is completely torn down as far as the sound controllers. It looks awful - really trashy and by the time it happened I was out of warranty by literally days. So angry with Apple over the quality and the fact that they can't Fix the issue.

    Most of the reviews posted appear from last year and possibly relate to newly purchased items - wonder how everyone feels about their pack a year later!!!

    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.

    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.

    Very reliable

    This was long overdue and it's the best accessory apple has!

    Changed my whole experience on the iPhone 6s

    Don't often review products but here are the pro's and con's

    Pros:

    - Works with the lightning cable unlike other alternatives (E.g. the Mophie Juice iPhone chargers)
    - Works seamlessly within the whole iOS ecosystem. You can view the battery case charge percentage by pulling down on your iPhone screen, or by sliding it in and out
    - My iPhone 6s gets taken off charger (at 100%) every morning at 6am. Then it used to die by about 3pm (roughly). Now with this charging case, it lasts until 8/9pm before needing to charge again (live saver!)


    Cons:

    - The design is quite bulky and doesn't work well with skinny jeans pockets. Although the bulky design is something you can definitely get used to
    - There is no 'On/Off' switch so it's constantly charging whilst the case is on your iPhone
    - The rubber/silicone started to scratch, chip, and peel off on some of the edges. Something I'm not too pleased about considering I paid £79.99 for this case

    To summarise this case definitely isn't for everyone. If you're a die-hard Apple fanboy like me, then sure, it fits right into the Apple ecosystem of software and hardware. However, if you would like a cheaper alternative that offer similar performance, there are plenty of other options out there in the Apple Store.

    Smart Battery Case Review

    I don't usually do reviews on products but there are few things that aren't really mention by other people who had reviewed the Smart Battery Case.

    Firstly you can't charge the phone or case when they are combined together and when the phone is turn off. So if you are like me and like to turn off the phone and charge it overnight then this won't be possible with this case unless you either separate the phone from the case or leave it on over night.

    Secondly I think that that the Smart Battery Case is not made of different consistency of silicone compared to the regular silicone case. I have a iPhone 6s Antique White silicone case and although it pick up a little dirt during day it generally isn't that bad nothing that can't be fixed by wiping it on your jeans or using your sleeves. The White Smart Battery Case on the other hand get really dirty very quickly and dust seem to be attracted to it like a magnet. What really ignoring is the fact it had actually pick up more dirt when I wipe it on my Jeans.

    In the end I returned the Smart Battery Case and got a refund from the Apple Store. However I don't completely dislike the iPhone Battery Case and therefore I gave it 3 stars.
