iPhone 6 Mophie Juice Pack Plus
The iPhone 6 Mophie Juice Pack Plus is the best iPhone 6 battery case you can buy. This case delivers roughly 120% more power to your iPhone, with a 3,300 mAh battery, and it provide a lot of protection for the iPhone 6 thanks to impact bands that absorb shock when dropped.
In addition to keeping my iPhone 6 charged up on hectic and busy days the case saved my iPhone 6 when I dropped it on to the sidewalk. Like most of the new iPhone 6 battery cases the case charges with Micro USB and supports Pass through so you can sync to a computer or connect to a car entertainment system without switching to a Lighting cable.
Another great feature is the easy on off switch and LED indicators of how much battery life is left. The competition often delivers a less convenient way to turn the battery on or off.
The iPhone 6 Mophie Juice Pack Plus earns a Gotta Be Mobile Editor’s Choice Award and it is available for $119.
