Best battery cases for the iPhone X


While Apple has made some advances in iPhone battery life most heavy users of their smartphone will run into that Low Battery warning at some stage of the day. And sadly the same is true of Apple’s latest, greatest iPhone X.

The iPhone X has a Li-Ion battery capacity of 2,716mAh (10.35Wh). According to Apple this will get you 21 hours of talk time, up to 12 hours browsing the Internet, up to 13 hours watching video, or 60 hours listening to audio – although not all at the same time, of course!

iPhone X battery life is similar to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.

Apple makes its own Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 6/6s, iPhone 6/6s Plus, iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus – but not the X. Read our review of the Apple Smart Battery Case, which we loved despite its humpback look and tendency to flake a bit after a year’s usage.

It seems to have abandoned users of its later iPhone 8 and iPhone X to third-party battery case manufacturers such as Mophie. But even Mophie doesn’t have an iPhone X battery case out yet. Mophie definitely will at some point (and we’ll let you know here first) but as Apple missed the iPhone 8 in its battery-case launches it could be that the X loses out too.

Read our round ups of the best battery cases for iPhone 6/6s and 6/6s Plus, the best battery cases for iPhone and 7 Plus, and best battery cases for the iPhone 8.

With no Apple or even Apple-certified battery case solution for the iPhone X, users have a choice of just the uncertified Chinese-made battery cases. Other than that you can of course buy a no-power protective case – see Macworld’s round up of the best iPhone X cases.

We bought a bunch of these from Amazon to test for you, and will update this round up of reviews when certified products become available, as surely they will – eventually. In the meantime, these battery cases are at least inexpensive. And don’t forget Macworld’s great tips on improving iPhone battery life.

Some of the cases we bought were identical, and just rebadged for different sellers. We picked the most popular of each type.

Remember that these are not Apple certified. In our testing these products reviewed here worked fine, but Apple recommends using only accessories that it has certified (MFI) and that come with the “Made for iPod/iPhone/iPad” logo.
