Watching YouTube videos, browsing Facebook, sending emails, and making calls are all things we do with our iPhone. Unfortunately, it never seems like there is enough battery life to get it all done in a day. Luckily for all of us, there's a simple solution to keeping your iPhone X charged and always ready to go: a battery case! Not only will a battery case increase your usage time each day, but it also offers a little bit of protection, so your iPhone X stays looking like new!

Why not the Apple Smart Battery Case?

While Apple does make a Smart Battery Case for the iPhone XS and that case will fit an iPhone X, it isn't a perfect fit. The Smart Battery Case for the iPhone XS (opens in new tab) is a slight mismatch for the iPhone X. While it does fit and charge your iPhone X, it also has the speaker and microphone holes in very slightly different places. Plus, the camera hump is just a bit off, making the Apple Smart Battery case a less than ideal choice.

Our top pick is the Mophie Juice Pack Air because Mophie has a great reputation of making fantastic accessories for the iPhone over the years. I've personally used charging pads, battery cases, car chargers, and other accessories from Mophie over the years, and the quality is always a standout.

If you're looking for something a little cheaper, the Maxboost iPhone X Battery Case (opens in new tab) is a solid choice. Offering more than its fair share of extra battery power and in a slimmer package than a lot of other battery cases, it's a good way to stay charged up without breaking the bank.

One thing for sure is that whichever case you choose to from the list above, you will extend your iPhone X battery life by a mile and find yourself charging your iPhone a lot less.
