Apple has made it easy to hang on to your older iPhone for several years by making its newest operating systems backward compatible with five-year-old models like the iPhone 6S, while previous iOS versions work on a number of even older handsets. Batteries, however, are consumable items that may wear out before your phone does, and that’s where a case that touts more than just hard-shell protection comes in. Below are the best iPhone 6S battery cases that offer great protection and a juice boost when you need it.
Casely Battery Powered Charging Case
With its numerous layers of durable polycarbonate and a 1.2mm thick edge, Casely’s battery charging case makes sure that if your phone slips through your fingers, the result will not be cut fingers on broken glass. This stylish charging case — with raised, embossed buttons — also ensures that your phone’s battery remains functional without your having to scout around for a power outlet and charging cable. Just charge up the case and slide it on your phone for non-stop power.
LoHi Battery Case
The slim, lightweight LoHi iPhone charging case, with its protective raised sides and hard-shell design, features a powerful 5,000 mAh built-in lithium polymer charger chip that promises your iPhone 6S more than 270% extra battery life. Its durable clip will not break when you pull the phone from the case. The charger case requires two hours to charge your phone, with auto power off and intelligent power management to shield your handset from overheating and overcharging. The interface supports charging, audio, and data sync with your computer.

The QTShine keeps your iPhone 6S ready to rock with a powerful 6,000 mAh built-in lithium polymer battery chip, which more than doubles your iPhone’s battery life, especially when traveling or pursuing outdoor adventures. Four LED battery level indicators let you know how much power you have. The batteries feature a safe circuit diagram design that protects your iPhone from overheating, short-circuiting, overcharging, and discharging. The case’s sync-through tech lets you simultaneously charge your iPhone and the battery charger case. The hard case provides a protective bumper to shield your iPhone from scratches and impact. It comes in red, black, or rose gold. Note that this case is not compatible with lightning headphones or 3.5mm headphones, but works with Apple AirPods or other wireless Bluetooth headphones.

With a two-piece, slide-on design, it’s slim and compact with a shock-absorbing, rigid polycarbonate frame, soft microfiber lining, and raised bezel. Use the battery only when you need it by attaching the battery pack when you’re running low. For slimmer handling, you can remove the battery pack entirely and just use the case. The package includes a headphone adapter and Micro USB cable.
Alpatronix BX140 Slim Protective Extended Battery Charging Case
The Alpatronix BX140 offers all-body protection in a compact design with a slim, lightweight profile, raised bezels to avoid screen-to-surface contact, and a screen protector. Install your phone in the case first and then charge as needed. Just remove the bumper frame and slide the iPhone into the case, connecting it to the charging port. Once the iPhone is in place, reconnect the bumper frame on top of the iPhone and snap in the sides. Or you can charge the iPhone and case together using the included cable and any USB charger. The case is compatible with Apple Pay and CarPlay.

Just slide your phone into the battery cases, cover the top, and press the On button for three seconds to start charging. The case offers all-body protection from scratches and general wear and tear while internal chips protect your iPhone from overheating, short-circuiting, and overcharging.
