LifeCHARGE MFI Certified 3000 mAh Extended Protective iBattery Case for Apple iPhone 6

Screen Shot 2015-03-24 at 4.26.07 PMEven though the battery capacity of an iPhone has not increased over the years (and has in fact slightly decreased), thanks to the clever design and many iOS improvements iPhones last much longer today than they did when the first generation of this revolutionary device came out. Nonetheless, I am rarely able to go for more than a day without recharging my phone, even with a very light telephony use. I have several external batteries and power banks that I carry around with me at all times, but they can be annoying to pull out and use, especially if I am constantly on a move. Life Charge is an ideal product to have for iPhone power users, but only if you don’t mind the extra bulkiness that it provides.

The LifeCharge Case looks and feels very well designed. It sits comfortably in your hand, although you will certainly notice the extra bulk. All of the iPhone’s ports and controls are easily accessible. The case channels the audio output from iPhone’s own speakers to the small speaker-like openings of its own. The case was easy to use, and iPhone 6 slides into it very easily.

The 3000 mAh battery capacity is more than iPhone’s own battery, and it’s on par with some high-end Android phones, such as Samsung’s Galaxy line. Use of this LifeCharge Case will more than double the lifespan of your iPhone. Charging itself was very quick and effective.

What distinguishes this battery case form some of its competitors is that it’s MFI certified by Apple. This means that you will not have to worry about whether it will stop working with your iPhone if Apple changes its specifications in some future version of iOS ar the phone firmware.

One issue that I have with this iPhone case is that it uses the micro USB port for its charging. This is an odd choice of charging input, especially considering that this case is Apple certified. iPhone charging case that doesn’t use the lightning cable is also not a very appealing marketing move. This choice of charging input will mean that you will not be able to sue any of the iPhone specific accessories and stands (like some external speakers for instance) that you might have. Many of them, however, would have been made useless thanks to the thickness of this case anyways.
