iPhone users received a pleasant surprise last weekend, in the form of an unexpected battery pack upgrade. Seeing as how battery replacements are one of the most common iPhone 6 repairs, this is good news indeed.
iPhone 6 Battery Pack Design & Features
The new battery case for both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s looks very similar to existing iPhone cases, but bears a number of innovative features (besides being able to go over a day without recharging). Rather than the brickish, bulky design of many iPhone cases, the new battery case looks like a common protective case, with a slight lump on its back for the battery.
Keeping with the minimalist design, Apple put all of the identifying features on the inside, printing the serial number and FCC stamp on an attractive dove grey felt lining.
Why an FCC stamp, you might ask?
Apple had the foresight to install an integrated antenna, to make sure the battery case doesn’t interfere with the reception. An LED was also included, between the felt and the case, to indicate when the case is charging when there’s no phone in it. The LED blinks solid green, when fully charged, and solid orange while it is still charging.
The battery case fits snugly around the phone – a little too snugly in the case of the iPhone 6s. While both models slide in easily, you have to wiggle the case a bit to get the iPhone 6s out. The case also adds roughly 2.5 cm to the length o the phone, which could mess up your texting muscle memory, so be advised. The good news, though, is the battery is a little lighter than the previous model. Your iPhone is still able to easily fit in your back pocket, when need be, so the additional length is a minor quibble.
All of these features, with a slick design, in addition to the staggeringly long battery life, should make this a solid investment at the MRSP of $99 USD.
