Is thicker worth it?

That will really depend on how much you value having extra battery life over having a slim iPhone. Apple's modern phones are known for being incredibly thin while still packing powerful hardware. One of the biggest worries with getting a battery pack is that you'll lose that slim, sleek look. It's a valid concern, really. The wrong accessory can make your iPhone turn into a bulky nightmare that won't fit in your pocket or bag as easily. Still, having extra battery life is very appealing and will be worth the bulk for many people.

The iPhone X, XS, and XS Max are all 0.3-inches thick, while the iPhone XR is 3.3-inches thick. Mophie's X/Xs Juice Pack Access model is 0.69 inches thick, the XS Max model is 0.71 inches thick, and the XR model is 0.75-inches thick. Basically what you need to know from these measurements is that any of these battery cases will make the iPhone feel more than twice as thick as they are on their own.

Exactly how thick is that?

To get an idea for exactly how thick these Juice Pack Access models are, consider that 0.7 of an inch is about the height of one and a half AA batteries. That's pretty thick and will make it harder to slip in and out of your pocket easily, especially for those wearing women's pants.
