Tylt Energi Sliding Powercase for iPhone 6 Review

The Tylt Energi iPhone 6 battery case is the best option for users who need longer iPhone 6 battery life, but don’t want to always carry around a bulkier battery on the back of the iPhone 6. Unlike traditional iPhone 6 battery cases, the Tylt Energi Sliding Powercase for iPhone 6 slides off to leave a thin case on your iPhone 6 when you don’t need the added power.

At $99, the Tylt Energi iPhone 6 battery case price is in line with Mophie and other options, but it delivers a double duty that competitors lack.

On many days I need more power than the iPhone 6 can deliver, but I also want to enjoy the thin iPhone 6 design while using it. With the Tylt Energi case I don’t need to change cases in the middle of the day, I just need to slide the 3,200 mAh battery on when I need to charge.

The Tylt Energi iPhone 6 battery case includes a slim case that can slide out for everyday use.

This provides enough portable power to charge the iPhone 6 more than once, and it is perfect to get me through a long day. I also like that when I am using the iPhone 6 with the slim Tylt case it is possible to charge the battery pack without tethering myself to an outlet. This is especially handy while traveling or when I need to recharge at someone else’s house. When the batter case is on, a single cable will charge both the phone and the battery.

With a MFI compatibility the Tylt Energi iPhone 6 battery case allows me to sync the iPhone without taking the case off. This means I can use a Micro USB cable to sync with a computer or to connect to my car entertainment center.

A single button on the back controls charging and a push will show you how much power is left in the battery with four LED lights.

When your iPhone reaches 100% the battery pack stops charging to save power for later. This works it is a nice feature that prevents the battery from wasting energy trying to keep the iPhone charged at 100%, which uses up battery power faster. If you are using the phone when it reaches 100% the charging will continue.

Initially the soft matte design of the Tylt Energi Sliding Power Case was a little slippery, but after a few weeks of use both the battery and the slim case are easier to hold. Even though this is a two-part design, the build quality is very good. There is a little side to side movement when the case is together, but most of the time I can forget that these are two pieces. When connected the two parts stay in place well. I have not had the iPhone 6 in the thin case slide out of the battery pack during over a month of use.

All the buttons are easy to access with the case on and the bottom edge uses openings to direct the sound towards you making it easier to hear without headphones on. Most headphones work without an adapter, but if you need one you can contact Tylt support.

The Tylt Energi iPhone 6 battery case is an excellent option for busy professionals and any iPhone user who wants more power, without always carrying a battery on the back of the iPhone.
