5 extended battery cases for the iPhone 6
posted by Daniel P. / Oct 03, 2014, 6:24 AM
iPhone 6 is a fine piece of hardware - we found it to be fast, sleek, with a luminant display, and great camera quality, but it is marred by one major drawback - its battery life. The iPhone 6 scored in the middle of our smartphone battery benchmark rankings, achieving just a little over six hours of screen-on time. This means that you'd still have to charge it every day with normal usage, like its predecessor, while some Android flagships are now on the two-day stretch, and even a three day usage on a charge isn't out of the question with some midrangers carrying the green robot inside.The
That is why the iPhone 6 is in a dire need of case, both to hide the unsightly back, and to add some needed girth to the ultrathin handset. We kid, but a battery case would stick like a spoon in butter on the new iPhone 6, providing you both with protection, and two-day smartphone-ing out of Apple's finest. Here are a few of those that are currently available, and we will be adding more when they hit the market.

People put cases on their phones all the time. Why not a battery case that only extends life in a pinch. People put Ballastic, Lifeproof and OtterBoxes which are the same size as my Mophie on my iPhone 5. Now that I have 6 Plus its in a case but will consider a battery for even longer life. I get a full day no problem

Honestly, they come in handy if you know it'll be a while before you can plug in again. During the week, I was good to go with just my iPhone, but on the weekends I carried around my Mophie Juice Case. Mostly because I'd leave the house in the morning and wouldn't return until late that night (or morning). They really do come in handy for any phone. I am happy to say my iPhone 6 Plus lasts much longer than my iPhone 5. I can get through the day just fine without the battery pack.

Instead of making it just a little bit thicker for a better battery life, they made it necessary to boost the battery life with a acase that makes it not only considerably thicker, but bulkier in every direction. A case for protection is one thing, but a batteryless case still doesn't make the phone as bulky as these things.

With the iPhone 6 and its lack of battery life, it looks like Apple didn't want to abandon their community of wallhuggers who live by the trash cans and bathrooms. Apple users should stick together. Makes the reality distortion field stronger. I can't imagine iPhone users with giant cases that make their iPhone look like some giant brick of an Android phone from 2010 are going to be too popular with the mainstream wallhugger iPhone crowd.

haha don't worry he is just remembering the samsung adv. People are so gullible , samsung says iPhones battery and they just blindly trust a stupid add . P.S. - i know iPhone's battery but it is not that bad.

My 6 plus is a day and a half, with a little juice left. I only tested it a couple times, as no matter what, I plug in at bed time to be 100% in the morning. My phone comes off the charger at 1:45 am when I go for my morning run. It gets plugged in no later than 8:pm when I knock it out. I've yet to be under 30% at plugin time. One happy camper, off topic, but the camera is by far the best I've ever used on a smartphone. Integrating iPhoto into the camera/photo app was one helluva smart move. 10/10 camera
