Despite their high productivity and popularity, iPhones do have some little issues. One of the main complaints is low battery time. So, if you leave your charging device at home, you may easily end up in an awkward situation when you can’t call anyone. Of course, there are solutions to that problem, like power banks. But for smartphones we have one more interesting option – battery cases. Many brands make these accessories today but for an iPhone you may want a product from the manufacturing company itself. So, here’s Apple’s own iPhone Smart Battery Case.
This accessory came out before iPhone 7 release, so it fits only 6 and 6s models. First off, the case does look a bit bulky. Nonetheless, it’s quite comfortable and nice to touch. The case is made of rubbery silicon as many other accessories for Apple devices. Plus, it has a microfibre-lined interior, so the phone doesn’t get scratched.
Let’s move to functionality which is the main thing about this case. A built-in 1.877mAh battery provides you with some extra energy if you’re on the go. That’s where the bulkiness of its looks comes from – the battery creates a kind of a bulge on the back of the case. Still, it’s better than having a switched-off smartphone. With this battery case, you get around 8 additional hours if you use your iPhone actively.
One advantage that Apple Battery Case has over its competitors is Lightning integration. Usually, other similar cases are charged via micro-USB but this one has a Lightning pass-through. That means that you won’t have to worry about buying supplementary cables. Instead, you can charge your iPhone and case at the same time.
So, Apple Smart Battery Case is quite a handy solution for the battery problem. The price is a bit steep ($99) but it’s still a sturdy and reliable mobile accessory.
