    The time of year has come where I’m super happy because the smart battery case has launched. I’ve been getting this case since I had the 6. It’s a great case to have when traveling or when you need to leave work in a hurry and can’t be tethered to an outlet. I also have an Anker USB-C powerbank that supports fast charging. When the case is drained I drop it into my bag and let it charge by powerbank while I’m still out. This is really a no brainer.
    Only thing I’m doing different is I’m going to wait till Black Friday and see if I can get this at a deal instead of buying at $129. I was in Minnesota last weekend and if it had dropped last I would’ve got it already but since I don’t have any trips I’ll roll the dice and wait till next Friday I’m hopes of getting a deal. Anyone else getting one as your main case or side piece?

    It’s still a rip off. $129 I would pay and consider a fair price. But $200 just for a phone case? Come on

    They're definitely handy. $129 isn't bad, but definitely keep an eye out for some deals.

    Currency exchange looks to be about the same, but I don't know what that is in real life!

    All Apples case are not cheap. For a battery case i would be sticking with apple's case designed by them for their phone, at least you would be covered if it damages your battery/phone.

    I like the side button, push it opens camera even if screen off, also to take a photo, and if you hold it in takes video and stops when released. Its In a perfect spot for your finger when holding. You can open the camera when on a table too before you pick it up. Good features to have and makes it better value for the $$ imo.

    If there was somewhere that was selling the new case via Afterpay I would get it but I just can’t afford $200 up front

    I just discovered that Office Works DOES do Afterpay and they have all the Apple cases but don’t have the smart battery case. At least not yet anyway
