Cheero’s Power Case is not only sleek and stylish, but it doubles your iPhone 6’s battery capacity. Measuring 153mm x 17mm x 71mm and weighing in at 90g, this accessory barely adds any bulk to the handset, and it easily slides into your pocket. It’s equipped with a genuine Lightning connector, so you won’t have to worry about charging issues. Best of all, you can grab one for $35.99 shipped today, originally $79.99. Product page.

When we received the item, our first thought was how could a case this light double as a 3000mAh battery? Inside the box, you’ll find the case, microUSB charging cable, a 3.5mm headphone extension adapter, and instructions. Placing the handset inside was as simple as removing the top portion (camera half), and then pushing that piece back into the grooves. There is a slight raised groove on the display area to prevent it from cracking should it accidentally slip out of your hands. Before heading out, make sure you use the included microUSB cable to charge up the case.
Once fully charged, all you need for some extra power is to press and hold the button next to the LED indicator on the rear. You’ll see a green light come on if there is sufficient charge, or a red one if the case needs recharging. If you’re at 100%, just press and hold the button again to stop the charging process. To test, we fully charged our iPhone 6, along with the case, ran the power down on the latter, and was able to recharge it fully from 0% – 100%.
Overall, we highly recommend this case to those who need extra power on the go, without having to bring a power bank or wall charger. It looks and feels like a sleek matte black case, but with added charging capabilities. More information.
