Materials and Shape
The smart battery case is made of silicon in which the size has been measured and adapted to the size of the iPhone 6s. So, you will not find it difficult when you will insert your iPhone to the case or remove it from the case.
In addition, the inside part of the case is also very smooth so you do not need to worry about any scratches. The real case of your iPhone will remain safe without scratches at all.
Since the shape of this smart battery case has been adjusted to the original shape of the iPhone 6s itself, then all the buttons around the body, camera, charging connector, and so on will remain to emerge and you will not run into trouble when you want to press a button on the body, or plugging the charger cable into the case.
In the bottom, there is a connector for connecting the smart battery case to your iPhone. The battery case stands out on the back and it is a bit mounted, but it does not bother the comfort when you grasp your iPhone by your hand.
Inside the case, there is a small indicator light as a sign that the battery case is functioning. When you charge the battery case, the light turns into red, and when fully charged it will turn into green.
Besides, when your iPhone is inserted in this case, then you can see the virtual battery indicator on the screen of your iPhone. So you will see two indicators, the battery case indicator and the real battery iPhone indicator.

We consider that this is a good product for those how need extra battery life and the price is not cheap but comparing with other battery cases is not exaggerated.
However we think that the product could be better because of that: you need to charge the battery and then you insert the iPhone on the case and the case will charge the iPhone. You don’t have a way to insert the case battery without charging the iPhone what may be considered so you would only use the battery case when necessary.
