More power is always a good thing, especially for the iPhone 6s. While the handset’s battery is good enough for most users, some need a little extra juice to help make it through the day. Instead of having to worry about stopping to charge your iPhone, a battery case can help keep you powered on the go. Here are six great options.
Apple Smart Battery Case
Apple’s official battery case for the handset is expensive, but offers a number of unique features. Most importantly, both the iPhone and case can be charged simultaneously with a regular Lightning cable. The case’s battery is also available to view on the iPhone’s lock screen and in the Notification Center. The battery itself is an 1,877mAH cell, which should double your iPhone’s battery life.
The case is available in black or white and can be purchased at your local Apple Store or through Apple’s online store for $99.
Anker Ultra-Slim Extended Battery Case
The case’s 2,850 mAH cell can extend your iPhone’s battery life by up to 120 percent. It only adds 0.23 of thickness and 2.9 oz of weight to the handset. There’s no need to remove to case to sync with your computer or charge.
Only available in black, it’s $39.99.
Tylt Energi Sliding Power Case
While battery cases are a great way to provide an extra boost of power to your handset, they usually add a lot of bulk. But Tylt’s Energi Sliding Power Case does a great job of giving users the best of both worlds with its unique design. The battery portion can be removed when needed and the phone is still protected with a slimmer case.
Mophie Juice Pack Reserve
Mophie’s slimmest battery case available for the iPhone 6s, the Juice Pack Reserve, features a soft-touch exterior.
It adds only 0.3 inches to the thickness of the handset. Four LEDs on the back of the case tell users how much power is left in the battery case.
A number of other colors – including pink, purple, black, and rose gold – are $59.95.
LifeProof Fre Power
Along with being a battery case, the Fre Power protects the handset from water, dirt, and dust along with drops of up to 6.6 feet. The case can double the battery life of your handset.
A bright blue version is $79. It’s also available in gray and black for $108.62.
PowerSkin PoP’n 3
If you’re wanting portable power on the go but don’t want to give up your current case, the PowerSkin PoP’n 3 is a nice option.
Thanks to rubber suction cups, the battery can attach to pretty much any surface, including cases or the rear shell of an iPhone. Just pop it off when not needed. An integrated Lightning plug can be inserted directly into the iPhone for charging.
A gold, space gray, or silver version can be purchased for $46.91.
