    Default iPhone 7 smart battery case

    What is your opinion about it? Has anyone used the 6s version and comment on it?

    I have the 6S case and it works great. The phone charges from the case until the case runs down and then the phone battery kicks in. Just the way it's supposed to. I can easily get 2 days worth of use without charging when I'm using the case. I only use it, however, when I will be in an area where I won't have access to a charger, excessive roaming, etc. It does add bulk to the phone but not excessively so. It fits very comfortably in my hand and it is not slippery. Hope this helps!

    I like the software integration of it. But I still prefer Mophie's Juice Pack

    I would consider myself a moderate user. Not a gamer or video watcher, but music, checking social media several times a day. On a normal day without the case I would be down to 40+% by bedtime.

    The battery case is great and I highly recommend it. The design isn't nearly as bad as it looks and it actually fits quite well into the hand. Having double the battery life without adding a lot of extra bulk and still being able to use a lightning cable is all worth the price in my opinion.

    For reference, I'm not quite a power user, but I'm above average in my usage.

    I hope they make this case for the iPhone 7 plus. I didn't get a chance to try it on my 6s plus

    It's already listed on the Apple Store for iPhone 7. It doesn't look any thinner to me. They never put out one for the 6 plus so I wouldn't expect them to do so for the 7 plus.

    I ordered one for my new iPhone 7 from the Apple store and it should be here by Thursday. I had used the Mophie battery packs for my iPhone 5s and 6 and they worked great. I have no doubt that the Apple one will be just as good..

    Does anyone know why Apple don't make battery cases that support the plus models?

    The reason why they made the case was because the 6 plus had much more battery life. It's an attempt to make up for the 6's "underpowered " battery. So say most of the Apple sites anyway.

    I've thought about the Apple battery case, especially since ive had several Mophie cases and they make the smaller 6s/7 almost as long as the Plus size, and make it into a brick. Is the Apple case more trim & streamlined?

    Default iPhone 7 smart battery case



    I just scored a deal on one from a coworker who didn't want it. I have to say the battery life is incredible. The case is now drained and have 66% left on the phone battery with 12.5 hours of actual usage time and 32.5 hours from last full charge. It easily doubles battery life if not more. The 6s battery case maybe gave and additional 75% battery.

    Yes. This is why Apple's case is far superior than 3rd party options. They're optimized for the software that is running on the phone, thus it being the "smart" battery case. I had a very good experience using it with a 6S.

    If it wasn't fine on the battery, Apple wouldn't sell it.

    I think the idea is the the plus models already come with a bigger battery so battery life isn't such an issue. My wife just went to the plus, before she was always running out of battery, now with the plus she gets through the day.
