We loved that this case not only charged our phone, but provided extra durable protection too. The case will hold a charge for 2-3 days and is compatible with wireless charging mats as well. Compared to similar cases this was one of the less bulky. Access to the power and volume buttons is covered for protection, but we found the buttons were still easy to press.
The case blocks the headphone jack you will need Bluetooth headphones.
The Pwxaxpy case charges with the same lightning cable as the iPhone, so there is no need to have yet another cord lying around. Using the same cord also means you can sync your phone to iTunes without removing the case. The top of the case snaps on and off easily so you can remove the case if needed. This case provided 2 full charges before requiring a recharge.
No access to headphone jack when the case is on. Again, Bluetooth headphones are needed.
While the headphone jack is covered, the Trianium case comes with an extension jack, so you can still enjoy your music. We found the setup instructions simple and easy to follow. We loved that all of the buttons were easily accessible with this case. Best of all, it fully charged the phone twice before dying.
While the case does fit nicely, it is extremely difficult to remove.
We loved the extra USB port on this case – making it possible to charge 2 phones at once. Again, we loved that this case used the same iPhone charger, instead of a micro-USB charger. The buttons remain uncovered on this case for easy access. Once the magnetic battery pack is removed, you are left with a sleek, aesthetically pleasing case.
The magnetic battery pack adds a lot of extra thickness. Luckily, it is removable.
We found the Emishine case to be the best looking. It's slim, lightweight and available in multiple colors. Without the extra bulkiness that most of it's competitors have, this case was able to fit in our pocket with ease. We got 1 full charge before the case died – given the case size, it was more than we expected.
This case does not offer much protection to your phone.

With battery charger cases, you’ll have the best of both worlds for your iPhone: A protective case to keep your phone safe, and more time to use your phone between external charges. When shopping for one of these combo cases, be sure you search for one that is durable, yet slim and lightweight so you can easily carry it around. Cases should be easy to install on your phone, and easy to remove if you need to at some point. It should not cover up the headphone jack, and if it covers the power and volume buttons, you should still be able to use them. Target cases that offer several colors and/or designs to give you an aesthetic option.
