Best Apple iPhone 6s extended battery cases

Best Apple iPhone 6s extended battery cases
While Mophie and the other players in the big case and accessory league may take their sweet time to mark their extended battery cases for the iPhone 6 and the larger 6 Plus as compatible with the new 6s and 6s Plus, smaller manufacturers are already filling the void, and with very enticing propositions at that, most of which can be had right now. After all, the difference in thickness is less than tenth of an inch, so almost all of the cases that fit the iPhone 6, will fit the 6s as well.

The iPhone 6s is a great piece of hardware - fast, with a luminant pressure-sensitive 3D Touch display, and great 12 MP camera quality, but it is marred by one major drawback - its battery life. Apple posted official iPhone 6s battery life specs that are on par with the iPhone 6 before it. However, let's not forget that the iPhone 6 battery life numbers have been posted with iOS 8 onboard. The iOS 9 update brings major optimizations that may squeeze an hour more from your handset, so the true iPhone 6s battery endurance might be even shorter than the iPhone 6, as it ships with iOS 9 onboard from the box, and that's how its official battery life numbers have been calculated, too.

In any case, 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 giant 4000mAh+ batteries. Fret not, though, as there is a rich accessory ecosystem around the iPhones. A simple extended battery case would stick like a spoon on butter to the new iPhone 6s, 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.

I hate these battery cases. They have that chin in the bottom which make a phone ugly as f*ck and asymmetric. Actually, here's where I think manufacturers should use wireless charging. The case will be like a slightly thick case with battery embedded and it will charge the phone wirelessly, leading to no chin on bottom. I would love that kind of case, but I don't think it exists.

First Apple would need to implement wireless charging like Samsung or others.

But why the need of extended battery why not make phone a bit thicker and give a better battery out of the box? Crappy OEMs. ( all OS included! )

Because they know most consumers are idiots. First the make thin and light phones with cheap metals and call it premium. Then they get them to put a fugly case on it to "protect" their "investment". This way the average idiot can be confident that their phone looks and feels premium twice in their entire ownership of it, once when they buy it and once when they sell it.

Because 99% of people want sexy phones, not practical ones. OEMs don't care about the tech nerds who visit phonearena or other tech sites.

This is why I think the Samsung S series and note series have done so well. Even after making them sexy, they are still practical. Though the note 5 would be 100% more practical with 128gb like the S6. 100% of the people who buy iPhones have expectations. Like long battery life. But when it doesn't give them that they just think all phone's are this way. They are told it'll last all day for them. For 80% of those people it does. I just don't know what to think nowadays.

Correct and hence, most consumers are idiots and they know it.

Except apple hasn't figured out wireless charging yet. Try this:http://www.amazon.com/RAVPower-Qi-Enabled-Single-Position-Wireless-Charging/dp/B00DN0AVN0

We r not going to carry this case always, if we r going for a long trip this is the best alternatives for power bank.

How we can talk about "one major drawback - battery life", if we don't even a have a phone to talk about ? Because of smaller battery and new OS ? Look iPad reported "10 hours of usage" forever, but take an iPad 4 with iOS 6 and iPad Air with much smaller battery and higher powered iOS 7. It's like saying the Air has worse battery life even before it's being made available/tested out.

There is actually a case out there that doesn't have that ugly chin at the bottom that seems to preserve a slim profile at the same time. It's currently on a crowdfunding website - just look up "ThinCharge."

This is why I still haven't upgraded from my Galaxy S5 yet because having to travel a lot I don't want a huge case or power bank stuck on the phone when I can just use my extended battery.

I have the MiLi case for iPhone 6, I rarely use it but one thing I like about it is that it doesn't look like any of these cases featured in the article. MiLi is like a snap on case that doesn't have the long chin or extended bottom. It keeps your phone length the same, it's thin and light. Check it out here -http://m.mymili.com/Product.aspx?id=59&pid=1
