    I bought a battery case once for a 5S. I used it for about an hour before returning it to Best Buy

    I have tried multiple battery cases over the years until I got a 6 Plus. I had a Mophie on my 4s and 5 but honestly I have found much better alternatives for better prices over the years. I am not a cheapskate by any means but I look for value and right now there is much more value on the market. Just my opinion though.

    This is the one I purchased during my tests. Granted, I only used it for a week or so but it felt pretty good in the hand and would charge to more than 100%: http://www.amazon.com/1byone-Externa...mUvbUpU2748274

    I have also used cases made by iBattz. They have interchangeable batteries and will more than get you through a day. They are also modular in that you can use them in conjunction with their tough cases. One word of caution, unless they have made significant changes their screen protectors are beyond crappy on their tough cases.

    If I feel the need for a battery case, I simultaneously feel the need for a different phone. There is no reason an iPhone or anything else should not be able to last a full day of use. Heavy gaming might put a strain on that, but that is an entirely different use case, and I have better things to do with my life.

    Battery cases tend to be quite large and add quite a bit of bulk to a device. They make a 6s the size of a 6S Plus, or larger, defeating the purpose of the smaller phone.
    Your full day of use differs from my full day of use. So for your uses it may last a full day. My iPhone will barely make it past 1 in the afternoon. Fortunately I have a charger at my desk so it isn't an issue. I wake up with a full charge, use my phone during the day and charge it in the afternoon before I leave work so I have a full charge into my evening.

    It seems like apple isn't the only battery case that uses a Lightning port....RIP.

    I use the Apple battery case. In comparison to Mophie's options, clearly the battery doesn't last as long but it gives me a few more hours which is better than nothing. I decided to get Apple's battery case over Mophie because integration and the lightening port are important to me. It's enough for what I need and it doesn't feel so bulky, Quasimodo and all.

    There "should" be no reason that an iPhone doesn't last, but unfortunately there are reasons lol. Phones are meant to be used, and in using them during my long work and travel days the battery isn't enough. I'm also not interested in outlet anxiety lol so an extra battery (case) is great. A case doesn't defeat the purpose of a slim phone because the actual phone is slim, and a case is simply an option.

    Currently using the smart battery case and am considering purchasing the ThinCharge case simply due to the looks of it. I like that it's barely noticeable that it's a battery case.

    I have the Mophie Juice Air for my iPhone 6s - works perfectly fine. I wish I didn't have to use it, but alas.. the battery issue is never ending story. The only thing I don't like about it, is the weight, but then again much like an earlier poster said its really good at protecting your phone. The case itself is sturdy for any impact. It's good to have.

    I use the Apple smart battery case and so far, it's pretty good. I still have battery power left when I go to bed around 11pm. The bulk is a downside and I've been thinking about only using it when I'm away from power for an extended period of time. I have a charger at work so there's really no need to worry about power during the day.

    Got my case today mophie while it looks nice it add bulk but not a great amount...1 draw back which I did not know about is the headphone jack extension not pretty! Their other cases never needed it! See pic...Great thing about the charging is the usb charges the case and the phone at same time meaning the case is off but it needs charging so I put phones in case plug is the USB to charge case the phone us charging too without me turning on battery case...so u don't need to take phone out to charge both by power outlet...Does anyone use a battery case?-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1464368260.968923.jpgDoes anyone use a battery case?-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1464368435.105953.jpg

    No it comes with only one...case has the iPhone 8 pin connector that's why u can charge phone and case same time...and also the lights at the back that let you know the % of power that the battery pack is @ while plugged in to charge does not stay lit...it use to stay lit on older models on newer models of mophie battery cases the lights goes out so u might think it's not charging and it defective but it's not...I thought this at first because the battery case light kept going out and I always have to press to see if case is fully charged or charging so I left it alone check back in an hour pressed button on case and it was fully charged!

    I'm liking mine on weekends when I don't want to think about it. You're right, the battery in the case lasts nearly all day before it hits the phone.

    For instance, I took mine out of charger this morning at 06:30 and now, at 12:30, the battery case is at 60% with a quite heavy use... I'm more than satisfied about that.

    I'm also quite happy about the reduced number of charging cycles on my battery: only 51 in almost 5 months thanks to the battery case. Without it I would probably be at around 120 cycles....

    Yup! Knowing I have the power to spare, I do tend to use the phone more with the battery case and it holds a charge for a long time.
