Apple announces new Product Red version of its Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 7
Apple has just announced the Product Red variant of the Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 7. As with everything in Apple's Product Red line-up, a portion of the retail price will be donated to an organization that aims to fight AIDS around the world.

In terms of hardware, the Product Red Smart Battery case for the iPhone 7 is the same accessory as the regular version, which is available in either black or white. This means that customers get a 2365mAh battery (which should suffice to fully charge the iPhone 7 once), the controversial back hump that almost no one likes, as well as the ability to view how much of the battery the case has left right on the iPhone 7's lock screen. The price of the new Product Red item is $99, same as what Apple asks for its regular smart battery case for the iPhone 7.

At the moment, the Product Red variant of Apple's Smart Battery case for the iPhone 7 has yet to show up on Apple's website. Until Apple gets around to launching the new Product Red iPhone 7 battery case, you can head on over to the source link below and discover Apple's other Product Red offerings.

I applaud the cause they're supporting, but not this phone case.

Even with 'cause they're supporting' they wanna make some profit, selling things that stay unsold otherwise. Why they don't just donate? Apple don't have money? Why should rip off ppl, using their sympathy ....selling unsold stock.

Would be better if the battery covered the entire back of the phone instead of that awkward small bump.

I like the small hump, it should be easier to hold, like the HTC Thunderbolt was, especially with the bigger battery.

There are rumours saying that there's a PATENT regarding the innards and designs of power banks, and Apple surprisingly didn't want to infringe on that patent, so we end up with that ridiculous bump...

Just put in larger batteries. If other OEM's can put a larger batter into a device of the same size or smaller, you know Apple can do it. All that money and lack of sense, in trying to make customers spend more money is ridiculous! If you phone doesn't last 12 hours on a single charge, it means it a piece of junk, or you use it way to much. My device last 2 days on a single charge. But even though I use my old iPhone the same, they never lasted a full day. Always beeping 20% at 3PM in the afternoon when I had 2 or 3 hours to go. That's terrible considering the low end specs back then. But even now, it seems iPhone use way to much juice considering the hardware specs. Am curious as to how much of the battery would get used in a day, if we could shove the iPhone's batter into the S7 or S7e.

Its like the alien movie where the alien is trying to come out through the stomach. Steve Jobs would fire Jhon Ivy in a heartbeat over that.

Reminds me of the extended batteries for HTC phones like the Thunderbold and Droid Incredible. The project Red colors are pretty cool but look better in all red or a darker face instead of white IMO.
