Nearly doubles the battery life but it’s ugly and overpriced

from Alphr

As I mentioned, there are some reasons you might consider buying the official Apple battery case for your iPhone 6s, but none of them are particularly compelling, beyond the native Lightning cable connection.

The Smart Battery Case does work – and it works well. It will extend the battery life of your iPhone 6s to nigh-on two days, and that’s undoubtedly a good thing. However, it’s ugly and far from the best value battery case you can buy.

The most comfortable battery case

Apple Insider

Gets the job done, but includes some baffling design decisions

from Apple Insider

Putting it bluntly — there's no reason to go with the Smart Battery Case unless you need something like it the moment you buy your iPhone and, mysteriously, no other option is available. It does what it needs to do, but at a high pricetag and with problems other casemakers solved years ago.

It's a shame, since the case's Lightning port and iOS integration is genuinely useful and sets it apart from the pack. Hopefully this is the harbinger of the technology coming to superior third-party accessories.

Unabashed minimalism at the expense of flexibility

from iMore

At $99 for roughly four-fifths the charge of an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6, the Smart Battery Case is much more expensive than budget battery cases, and roughly in line with other premium cases that offer closer to a full charge. Coming from Apple, that should surprise absolutely no one.

Just like you can find cheaper phones than the iPhone, cheaper smart watches than the Apple Watch, and cheaper computers than the Mac, you can find cheaper battery cases than the Smart Battery Case. You just typically can't find them with the same level of materials, manufacturing, and integration. Those come with the Apple logo on the back.

Design feels comfortable and is sleek but not attractive at all

from Cnet

Apple's own iPhone 6 and 6S-compatible battery case is compact, comfortable and works with Lightning cables, but other cases exist that cost less and deliver more power.
