    I want to know what the cons are, if any, to the Apple battery case for the iPhone 7 other than the extra size because that wouldn't bother me.

    The only con I have is not being able to turn it off. If the battery case is on your phone it is charging your phone. I love it.

    I've got over the extra bulk as I now get up to 72 hours at light/moderate use!

    I know that charging isn't an issue and you can even charge your devices in many high street stores too, but I just wanted better battery life without having to worry about it.

    I really can't find a downside to it as it does exactly what I need it to do.

    Only con is the small issue when sometimes I would leave my phone with the case to charge overnight for about 7 hours and the case itself wouldn't be fully charged. Other than that, one of the best products Apple has made in the past year and a half.

    Love the battery case. I do wish it had a off switch but with the case it get a obscene amount of battery life.

    I think it's rather slippery and a bit heavy. Other than that, it's a nice case. I only use mine for traveling when I know I won't be near a charger like at a music festival, etc.

    I was wondering, does the phone maintain it's water resistance rating with the case on? I know water normally gets in the lightning port, but aren't you supposed to dry it before charging? This would still allow water in, but power would constantly be flowing from the case to the phone.

    I wouldn't recommend it.

    This.

    As for the negatives - I only disliked the bulk and weight. It's too much for me so I returned the case. But the benefits are great if you need more battery life. The Grip is decent but no where near as good as my Speck Presido Grip.

    The only downside I found was the weight. I got the case for free anyway so not using it seemed to agree with me more than using it. I eventually gave it away, paid forward yet again,
