    Re: Apple launches official iPhone 6s Smart Battery Case

    It's certainly more convenient than carrying a separate battery pack. Although I don't own an iPhone, my Motorola has pretty poor battery life if I'm listening to music, tethering or any activity other than in standby, so if im away from home I usually take an external battery pack. Something like this would be ideal.

    Really they release a new phone with rubbish battery life then expect you to pay extra to get the battery life you should have got anyway LOL. And the apple sheep will pay #giveappleallyourmoney

    Pretty sure it's a universal complaint for the majority of smartphones regardless of manufacturer. Hardly limited to Apple.

    Re: Apple launches official iPhone 6s Smart Battery Case

    Wow - Not sure what surprises me more - the horribly designed lump (why not just make it bulge the whole phone size minus the camera? It would look better and be easier to hold) or the price £79! I thought some of the android battery cases where a rip off at ~£20!

    Good idea, though hardly original, but I'm not sure how they expect a stack of shrink-wrapped business cards to help.

    The integrated battery life is good if that's what "smart battery display is"

    The lump is great as it means that it fits in chargers.. not seeing the problem

    My iPhone 6 battery seems pretty decent, to be honest. I use it pretty heavily all day on my desk at work and it easily lasts from breakfast til' bed time. I'm always pretty surprised to hear people having a hard time with theirs.

    If it doesn't have the Apple logo on it, it ain't going to sell well to Apple owners!

    That Apple logo increases the value of an item by at least 50%!
