Best battery cases for iPhone SE


The iPhone SE, with its aluminum and glass construction, isn't particularly tough, so in order to avoid damage from accidental drops, you may want to buy a protective case for it. And while you're at it, why not go for a case that also includes a battery (since the handset's own 1624 mAh battery will usually not last more than a full day)?

To ease your work - in case you are indeed looking for an iPhone SE battery case - we made a selection of the best such cases currently available to buy in the US, and we're inviting you to check it out below. If you own an iPhone SE (or plan to get one), let us know if you'd consider buying any of these cases, will you? In alphabetical order:

Alpatronix iPhone SE Battery Case


Buy from Amazon ($26.95 - $27.95, depending on color)

Pros

  • Quite thin for a battery case
  • Affordable
  • Available in multiple color variants

Cons

  • Made from glossy plastic that's not grip-friendly

This Alpatronix case is a simple, yet elegant accessory that comes with a 2400 mAh battery - enough to charge your iPhone SE's built-in battery over 100%. It has a power LED indicator, and a raised bumper that'll protect the screen in case of drops. Ports, buttons and cameras are all easy to access. The Alpatronix case is 0.6 inches (15.2 mm) thick, which means it's actually pretty thin for a battery case - it's the thinnest on our list anyway. The case comes in your choice of black, blue, green, pink, or white.


Maxboost Atomic S iPhone SE Case

Pros

  • Relatively affordable
  • Integrated kickstand

Cons

  • Audio jack adapter and kickstand feel cheap

The Maxboost Atomic S iPhone SE Case is another good looking case that comes with a 2400 mAh battery, and can deliver 120% additional battery life. The case employs a two-piece design for comprehensive protection, also including an LED battery level indicator, and a kickstand.


Mophie Space Pack


Buy from Mophie (starting at $149.95)


Pros

  • Has its own additional storage space (from 16 GB to 64 GB)
  • Available in multiple color variants
  • 2-year warranty (the other cases come with 1-year warranty)

Cons

  • Expensive
  • 1700 mAh isn't enough to fully charge an iPhone SE

This is one of the most expensive battery cases we've seen lately, but it has an advantage (that no other iPhone SE case has): besides including a 1700 mAh battery, the Mophie Space Pack offers 16 GB, 32 GB, or 64 GB of storage space - which should come in handy especially if you own a 16 GB iPhone SE. The 16 GB version costs $149.95, the 32 GB model is $30 more expensive, while the 64 GB one costs $249.95 (this can be bought only in black).


Skiva PowerFlow iPhone SE Battery Case




Pros

  • Very affordable

Cons

  • The bottom of the iPhone SE isn't fully protected

This Skiva case is the cheapest on our list, and should be a great choice for anyone not ready to spend more than $20 on an accessory of this type. The built-in 2000 mAh juicer can provide a 75% boost to your iPhone SE's battery life, while the integrated Lightning cable is used only when you need to charge the handset from the case's battery (thus, the rest of the time, the Lightning port remains easily accessible).


Unu Aero Wireless iPhone SE Case


Buy from Amazon (starting at $34.99)


Pros

  • Wireless charging support (pad included)
  • It looks pretty cool

Cons

  • A bit expensive

The Unu Aero Wireless case for the iPhone SE delivers 2000 mAh of extra power to your beloved compact handset. The case supports wireless charging, and comes with its own wireless charging pad for your convenience. Furthermore, with a shock-absorbing frame, and a raised bumper to protect the screen, this Unu case will make sure that your iPhone SE successfully survives drops. 


ZeroLemon 4600 mAh battery case for iPhone SE




Pros

  • Generous 4600 mAh battery (removable)
  • Definitely shockproof
  • Kickstand and belt clip included

Cons

  • One of the bulkiest iPhone SE cases we've seen
  • Not exactly pretty

As its name obviously shows, this case from ZeroLemon includes a 4600 mAh battery, which means it should be able to fully recharge you iPhone SE about two times. Thanks to a triple layer PC/TPU construction (including flaps for al your ports), the case will offer serious protection against drops, shock, and dust. You're also getting a built in kickstand, and a belt clip, but all these (plus the large battery, of course) make the case really thick: 0.8 inches (20 mm).

My concern with these is how and if they effect Apple Pay.

Maybe some one can make a case to give you a bigger screen. Instead you will get great battery life now with these cases, but you will have to see the eye doctor more because of the eye strain watching that postage stamp of a screen.

Seriously? I'm just fine with the iPhone SE's screen.

I prefer the size of a 5s to my 6s. It's so much more comfortable to use.
