The new iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro Max offer the best battery performance in recent memory but you can never have too much power which is why Apple has just released the new Smart Battery Case.
The latest iPhones can already run for an entire day and take you into the next but power users will want to have a little something in reserve.
And that’s where the Apple Smart Battery Case comes into play.
It can come to the rescue if you’re travelling, out on the road and when you’re just too busy to stop and charge at a power point.
The Smart Battery Case has a soft silicone feel with versions available for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Inside is a soft microfiber lining so your iPhone will be protected while it’s being charged.
The case offers up to 50 per cent longer battery life which, combined with the already impressive battery performance, means you can spend two days using the iPhone without having to go near a cable or charger.
There is a bump on the lower section of the case – this is where the case’s battery is located – and it does make the iPhone a little bulkier.
For us we were still easily able to carry our iPhone 11 Pro Max in our back pocket.
The added bulk is a small trade-off for having that extra power at your disposal.
Users can check the charge level of both the iPhone and the Smart Battery Case in the Notification Centre.
Of course all of the iPhone’s buttons and speakers are accessible through case along with the camera as well.
Speaking of the camera, the Apple Smart Battery Case also has a shutter button that can activate the camera and then also act as a shutter button.
A longer press will allow users to capture a QuickTake video.
When it comes to charging, the Smart Battery Case can be charged either through the Lightning port with a cable or wirelessly with a Qi-certified charger.
And if your iPhone is inside the case it will be charged as well.
The case isn’t cheap – you can buy a battery pack and charge on the go with a cable but that’s a lot more cumbersome. Apple’s product is both a case and a battery and offer the convenience of having two products in one.
The Smart Battery Cases for iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max are available now and are priced at $199 each.
They are available in soft white and black for iPhone 11, and in white, black and pink sand for iPhone 11 Pro / iPhone 11 Pro Max.
