BoxLegend iPhone 7 battery case

The BoxLegend case promises to pack quite a power-punch: after you slide in your iPhone 7, you'll get up to an additional 92 hours of music or 27 hours of talk time, along with 16 hours of extra app use. It takes around 2 and a half hours to fully charge your iPhone 7 once it's dead, though!

This fairly thin, 0.51-inch case may not be the most protective option for your iPhone 7, but it is a wonderful option if you're looking to squeeze a little extra juice out of your tech.

The BoxLegend case comes in only two colors: rose gold and black for around $20 a pop.

Alpatronix BX170 Ultra-Slim charging case

If you're looking for a reliable battery case that won't add a terrible amount of bulk to your iPhone 7, while still being able to (almost) perfectly match any iPhone color, then check out the BX170 Ultra-Slim charging case from Alpatronix!

Apple-certified, designed with a scratch guard, as well as a raised bezel in case you drop it face-down on the ground and super-duper easy to install, the Alpatronix BX170 Ultra-Slim charging case is an incredibly well-designed and durable battery pack for your iPhone.

One downside? The Alpatronix BX170 Ultra-Slim charging case case doesn't work with Apple's EarPods or with a Lightning cable or traditional 3.5mm headphones – it's only compatible with any wireless Bluetooth headphones or Apple AirPods, since it takes up the Lightning port on your iPhone. #sadtrombone

That being said, the BX170 is relatively affordable (around $32) and comes in colors that perfectly match your iPhone 7! Well, unless you have a space gray one...

  • Smart Battery Case is $129 in Canada, $99 in US.
  • The apple case is so ugly. It should be called the Beluga Whale. Steve Jobs would never okay that case.
  • There's a lot of design in that case.
  • True. After some research it became my first choice. However, for the price the case is below Apple's usual quality standards. Two cases stopped connecting, each withina month. Expectedly, Apple exchanged them with absolutely no issue. I finally have one now that's been working fine for a few months, even though it takes a phone reset to communicate sometimes. Besides that, I really like it. AND it has the Apple logo on it. 👍🏻
  • My biggest issue with the official battery case (hideous looks notwithstanding) is it's nigh on impossible to use your phone on a flat surface. Try and use the home "button" and the phone tips down. Press anywhere from the middle up and it tips the other way again like some overpriced seesaw. It's also worth noting that the Mophie case allows wireless charging with any Qi compatible charging plate, not just Mophie ones like the article states.
  • Have you actually tried the official battery case? It doesn't tip, even though it looks like it would
  • I own one on a 7Plus (given to me by my employer) and it does tip. Perhaps it doesn't on the smaller 7 model but definitely on its big Bro.
  • You must have an aftermarket copy smart battery case for the iPhone 7 Plus - because currently there isn't an official one from Apple. Maybe that's why it seesaws. Sent from the iMore App
  • You're right, it's not an official one, it had a big apple on the back so assumed it was. I retract my original statement. Sorry Apple!
  • I just purchased a mophie case, for the reasoning of - I bought one for my iphone 6 plus, and it was the most protective case I had, (other than an otterbox of course) that gave me a charge. BUT in saying this, Otterbox & Mophie are actually teaming up together to make a case! So keep your eyes peeled!
  • I have a problem with 2 things mainly: running out of juice before noon and bulky phones. So that was hard to hit a good case. I settled for the Baseus Slim Case. Good battery power 2,750mah and not so bulky. Has anyone tried that one?
