The Battery case

The Battery case explained

Thanks to the use of the battery case you will now get almost double the charge out of your phone. We pretty much live our lives through our smartphones, be it for business or personal use. The more you use your smartphone naturally the more battery power you use.

Now with the battery case you can do so much more without the hassle of your smartphone ever going flat. No more having to use a car charger, or carry your charger around with you, having to charge it somewhere. No more needing to carry around external battery packs. The battery case is the way to go.

The battery case comes fitted with built in batteries. Recharging the cell phone and the battery case simultaneously will result in you getting almost double the charge, which is going to last you twice as long as your normal smartphone charge. Within the battery case you have a 3 in 1 feature, giving you extra charge, protection, and increased memory for your phone.

I have included the battery case for the iPhone’s and the battery case for the Samsung’s in separate menu under this tab on my main menu bar. If you click on any of the highlighted text within this article it will take you to the respective page.

The manufacturers claim their cases give almost double the battery life to your phone.

As a result it does take longer to recharge your smartphone as now you’re charging both the phone and the case.

I’ve created pages under this tab for Battery cases for the iPhone and Samsung models respectively.

 

Mophie Battery Case

The Mophie Juice Pack battery case

The Mophie Space battery case is a great case for recharging your iPhone. The Mophie case comes for most the iPhone series, the iPhone 4, 4S, 5, 5S, 5SE 6, 6S, 6 plus, 7, 7S, 7 plus, 8 and the iPhone 8 plus. Depending which iPhone model you have will depend on what additional charge you’ll get.

The batteries range from 1700mAh- 3300mAh

This case also allows for simultaneous charging which means you can charge the phone and the case without having to remove the case.

 

 

Overview
  • 16/32GB Built-in Storage
  • 1700mAh lithium ion polymer battery
  • 6 Hours additional talk time
  • ± 40 hours of additional audio playback

  • additional 10 hours of video playback.
  • Simultaneous charging

Added Features

An added feature for the Mophie Space case for the iPhone 5s is that it actually adds memory to the phone. You are able to access this additional memory through an app. All you do is open the app and take a photo. This photo is stored in the Mophie’s memory.

When, connect your iPhone to a computer Windows operating system recognises it. Then all features run the same, cutting, pasting and drag and drop.

PhoneSuit case

When the battery of the iPhone 4s had completely drained, the phonesuit case extended its battery life by a further 6 hours. 

An hour more than the Mophie Space battery case. This is about 90% closer to the manufactures claim of getting a 100% battery life extension.

Overview
  • High Capacity 2100mAh battery.
  • Full Protection iPhone Case with Ultra Thin 17mm (0.67 in)
  • Less than 2 hours recharge capability
  • Compatible with iPhone 4 and 4S

Samsung Battery Case

Phone Suit Elite 5 P5-ELITE-IP5

The Samsung Galaxy S4 took about 12 hours to drain the battery . It was then fitted with the Mophie case.

The Mophie case gave the Samsung S4 an additional 9 hours of charge. This is an extension of about 75 percent more battery life, close to Mophie’s claimed 80 percent.

Overview

Unu battery case

When this case was combined with the Samsung S4 the battery life was approximately 24 hours.

This came very close to the 100% battery extension Unu claimed to give. The only slight downside to this case is it blocks access to the phone’s USB connector for some USB cables.

This is because this case doesn’t have its own connector and the cut out is quite small giving it a small space to reach the phone’s USB port.

Overview

Final Take

Remember, it seems all these cases will automatically recharge your smartphone once they’re drained but they need to be manually switched off. It’s a simple task turning it off, the problem lies in remembering to do it. If you forget to turn off the case the battery will drain along with the phone. You will however get longer use out of your smartphone regardless.

The Unu however gives you that piece of mind where you don’t have to worry about it turning on or off as this case does it automatically but its only available for phones that have removable batteries, which as you know is a thing of the past.

If you’re not only looking for a case that just offers extra battery life, but protection and added memory then you’ll definitely want to consider getting yourself one of these battery cases. Your phone will be heavier, but that is easily ignored given all the added benefits.
