    Amazing product

    I bought this product so I don’t have to carry around a brick all day. Though this case may add some bulk to an already hefty XS Max, it isn’t that much of a difference. With the case on I don’t have to worry about battery life when I’m out for more than 8 hours. Like when I go to University I stay on campus for 7-8 hours and this case keeps my battery at 100%. Another benefit is that once your phone is done charging via the case. The case automatically switches to trickle charging. Unlike other brands which do a continuous charge. That is bad for battery life. Overall, would recommend, although the steep price tag. When you buy Apple, you know you bought good quality.

    Amazing Battery Life

    Don't let the smallish battery fool you! Apple has really built an amazing design electronically with this battery case. While smaller than most battery cases, this battery will last you all rayon its own, THEN you have your internal battery to go. It can easily last 2 days with light usage and still be at 80 or so % with heavy usage throughout the day ... the design is also great with an easy to hold shelf and comfortable feel, as well as I have not had to use a screen protector since it gives great protection from all angles. Wireless charging, lightning charging, this is about all you could ever ask for in a battery case! I love it!

    A must for the XS Max

    This smart battery case is a must for me given the way that I use my XS Max. Without it, I would drain my battery extremely quickly each day and frequently need to recharge. I find that the Apple’s power and battery specifications tend to overestimate battery life or they assume unrealistically low levels of phone usage, but I may just use my phone way too much. With this case, I’m able to listen to all the podcasts I want, watch YouTube videos or even stream a movie without ever really worrying about my battery life.

    As someone that has always used Mophie chargers and cases I first bought the Apple Charging Case with a little trepidation but after using this case and getting two days worth of battery life coupled with iOS software compatibility I can say that the price was worth it! The feel of the case at first was a concern (I always use the leather cases) but that quickly went by the wayside. I use it as my daily case and only have to charge it every two days with standard phone and internet usage. I highly recommend this battery case to any and all!

    Wonderful product for travel. Cover does not increase profile of phone very much at all so it fits right in the same pocket of my very small handbag that I use to carry my iphone. When the charger is on the phone you scarcely notice it’s presence. I like the indicator that reports charge status of my phone, watch and charger right on the face of my phone. Using GPS on IPhone eats up battery fast but this battery solves that problem nicely. I recommend this product without reservation.

    I've been using this case for a month now and I love it. Fits like a glove on my SX MAX a bit heavier but you get used to it, a nice grip on the hand. Built like a tank has taken a couple drops from my 3 yr old and nothing. Battery is great I am a heavy user battery will last me about two days no problem. Phone stays nice and cool, speakers sound the same no sound loss!! Would recommend to anyone looking for extra power everyday use it just on trips with no power connection..

    Expensive but does what it says it will. I'm a super heavy user and I keep my phone at or near max brightness. Today I intentionally didn't use the wireless charger on my desk to see how long the battery would last. I got 6 hours of near constant web surfing and game playing before the phone switched to the internal battery (don't tell my boss). Wit my usage this case turns my XS Max into an all day phone. I wont need to charge after I take it off the stand in the morning.

    I am a Mophie buyer. I have purchased 6 Mophie’s and bought one for my iPhone XS Max. Highly disappointed. It only provided me with only 30% power. That’s it. I decided to try the Apple. Works amazing. I use my phone a lot. By 5pm, the charger is still charging. Needless to say I have power well into the evening. I also like the feel of the case. I would definitely recommend this case to anyone who needs a full charge into the evening.

    At first I wasn’t in love with this case due to the fact that you cannot turn on the charge as needed. However after using for a while, the Apple integration is fantastic!! It gives power as needed, based on usage. Also, shows charge on notification screen. By far the best battery case for the iPhone XS Max!! Sometimes the old saying is true, “You get what you pay for.” Expensive case, but worth it if you want or need extra battery between charges.

    This a a great iPhone accessory and works very well with your iPhone XS Max. You don’t loose the wireless charging feature of your phone when you use this extended battery and also maintain all features of the lightning port. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said with other cheaper extended batteries. The two disadvantages of this extended battery are high price and the fact that you don’t have a power button to control when it charges your phone.

    PROS -Expect a solid 2 days battery life w/ normal use. -Enables 1 day of HEAVY use. Perfect for vacations/events. -Feels balanced and good to hold. -Rubber like material will protect phone from most normal drops. -Will extend life on internal phone battery by decreasing its use. CONS -Adds weight and thickness. (Consider if this would impact your daily use) -Limited color options.

    I saw so many bad reviews I was worried about it . I took a chance and I love it. I’ve had it for about a month now and my phones battery health is still 100% . Unlike other battery cases this case uses its battery first than switches to the phone battery . The case last around 10 hours before switching to phone. I just charge my phone at night when I sleep, never need another charge all day. Great Product so far.

    Beyond expectations

    I’ve had this case for close to two weeks now and I have to say it has reached way over expectations. I put the case on my phone the moment I got it and I am on my phone frequently and I have still yet to use my phone battery. I do plug my phone in often when I am driving but even by the end of the night my phone is still running off the charging case. Highly recommend

    This case is great if you are out and about all day and don’t want to be tethered to an external battery pack. Cons : pricing (c,mon though, it’s Apple) weight, bulkiness, two and a half hour charge time Pros : extra 3,000 MAH, rubberized non-slip material, doesn’t overheat or get too warm (unless it’s used all day on a hot day in Vegas)

    I bought this battery case because I needed a new one for my iPhone XS Max. I have other battery cases but they don’t always hold their charge. The Apple battery case works well and holds its charge well through the day. It may seem to be a little expensive, but it is worth it’s price. A great purchase over all!

    Great Boost of Battery

    This case allowed me to go over 24 hours without charging my phone. It was great to have since I was out all day. I love that it uses the battery first, and then goes to my phone. You will want to make sure you use at least a 12W charger block in order to charge it quicker. The only downside is that it is a little heavy, but that is to be expected.

    Doubles the battery life

    This is a great case. Doesn’t offer much in terms of protection for your screen, however doubling the battery life of my phone is a welcome trade off. I work in sales and am on my phone constantly all day. I can now make it home to bed with 20-30 left on the phones internal battery whereas before I was charging up by 1-2 around my lunch time.

    If after a long day, you need the assurance that your phone will continue to function without a charge late into the evening hours when you really need it, then I recommend this case. For one, this case feels good to your touch. It's smooth but not slippery. After 5pm I usually have about 120% batter remaining. Nice case. Get it.

    I purchased this case about a month ago and I have yet to remove it. I'm a power user, ALWAYS doing something with my phone. It makes my phone last almost 2 days without needing to plug up. Plus the case can be charged wirelessly which is crazy. It's got the protective feel but I would still use a screen protector.

    I use this all the time. Gives me more than a full day worth of charge. Seems bulky at first but I got used to it quickly. There are other products out there but I like that this has a lightning port and how well it works with a wireless charger. The only con I have is that the silicone scratched easily for me.
