    That IS a nice looking case! It's bulky, of course, but not unreasonably so.

    It is a paltry 1400 mAh battery in it, no way worth that much money

    From a comment I saw someplace else:



    Old cases were 3.7-3.8v. New case is 8.7v. That increase in voltage means that even a smaller mAh rating can be a higher total capacity.

    In this case 1369mAh @ 8.7v is equivalent to 2657mAh @ 3.8v

    Or put more simply: this case is a 10.1Wh battery, the older ones were 7.31 8.96Wh or less. That's a ~38 13% increase in total capacity.

    If that is true it sounds much better. My first thought was that I am buying one at once but after seeing the mAh specifications it felt crap. But that was nice news, thank you

    I remember back when Apple made the first one, which I believe was for the 6S, there were a lot of claims being made that $99 was too much considering other battery cases had bigger batteries. Then actual real world use proved that Apple’s worked much better because of its alliance with iOS. My point is when I first read that headline on these new cases, I automatically thought to myself that there’s a catch to having that lower capacity. This must be it.

    I’ve been using it for two days. It’s bulky, but I don’t mind it.

    Feels great in the hand and it works really well.

    The going all day without hunting up a charger is the best part lol

    Yep!!

    I prefer it over Mophie’s Juice Pack. I’ve dropped mine today though, and it chipped the silicone part by a tiny bit.

    Mophie’s battery cases are nice but once you turn on charging the phone thinks it’s plugged in to a wall and starts a bunch of battery-intensive processes that I don’t want it to while I’m mobile. That alone makes the Smart Battery case that much better.

    I am considering the apple battery case, Mophie is nice and I like how they finally ditched the microUSB and went with USBC for charging, but still the Apples case just keeps your phone at 100% which without having to do anything.

    For those who have the Apple battery case, how has the daily use of keeping the phones battery at 100% until the smart case is drained impacted the iPhones actual battery health? Have you seen a drop in battery health at all?

    No. At 100% battery capacity and I've been using the case everyday since January 17th

    I think that’s the beauty of apples case. It acts like an extension of the battery so it doesn’t push the phones battery the way another external battery would. My battery hasn’t moved since using it and I’ve had it since day 1. And I use it in an X.

    That’s good to know I just picked up one of these myself... I had one with the 7... but never thought about battery health until recently... but I like it so far so good

    I’m using it 24/7, and it’s still at 100% battery health.
