What's my iPhone worth?

    I don't think anyone has asked this before but for those seeking super battery life out of it, what battery cases would you recommend?

    iMore made a post about some but most of the ones that they linked had a mix of bad reviews and a mix of good ones. I found one but I'm wondering if anyone has tried any?

    I don't use battery cases with my devices, but hopefully, someone who has will be along soon to answer your question....

    I'm guessing you have had iPhone models without weak battery life (i.e. the Plus series) that didn't require you to need one?

    Thank you for the suggestion! I see them a lot but it seems like some of them reduce signal or stop working after 2-3 months to a year. Is there a particular type you prefer from them (I see the regular, plus, and helium) and have you had any of these issues?

    ...
    As of late, yes, but I’ve never had a weak battery life with all of the none Plus models I’ve owned over the years....

    I’ve used Mophie battery cases for awhile now with different iPhone models and experienced no problems at all. I would recommend the normal, or the plus if you need the extra juice. The cases are not as protective as they marketed it to be.

    My SE has great battery life and I wouldn't want to add bulk to it anyway.

    Ah okay, that's good to know. Thank you. The normal will probably work for me just fine. I just need to figure out which ones are still sold and supported by Mophie. I'm indifferent about case protection but that's great to know.

    Yeah, it does have good battery life. It's just a hard adjustment from me going from great (even though my signal is weak in some parts of my home) to pretty good. I know, such a first world problem but still. In regards to the bulk, I'll find out of course.

    It really depends on your usage scenario and coverage.
    For me, I'm rarely away from a power source. I charge in the car to and from work if necessary. Therefore I don't need a battery case. I do have a compact battery pack I can take if I'm traveling, etc.
    For others, they may work in areas away from power or travel extensively. A battery case may be beneficial for them.
    You know best what you need. Hope you find what you're looking for.

    I also second the mophie juice pack plus, has a nice grip around the sides and can fully charged the battery

    Does the Mophie have a lightning connector, or is it micro USB? I have seen a few which are micro USB to charge, which seems odd to me.

    Hmm that's interesting. For now, I changed my mind about this battery experiment. I will consider Morphie if/when I decide to give this a shot.

    Micro USB
    That's what I thought. Seems like an odd choice and one that makes it difficult for the normal user to adapt to. I guess the thought is hopefully you never have to charge during the day or when you are away from the mophie charger.

    I don't belive of the cases with the lighting port are actually MFi certified, it always seems to be some off brand battery case that has it. At least on 5/se line
