The battery life in the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max is already pretty stellar for most owners. But if you need some extra juice on a day-to-day basis, a battery case can help with that.
So we’ve put together a quick list of some of the best options you can get right now for Apple’s latest smartphones. Prices range, as do battery capacities for the accessories, but each should give you plenty of life on a daily basis.
So let’s get into it.
The best iPhone 11 battery cases
Apple launched a new Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max earlier this year. And now it’s available on Amazon. It offers the standard protective case design, covering up the sides and rear of the phone, along with offering a raised lip to protect the rear cameras. It also packs a large battery to keep your device charged when you need it.
According to Apple, when the Smart Battery Case is fully charged it can offer up to 50% more battery life for your iPhone, and you can charge the iPhone and the Smart Battery Case at the same time. When the case is on, there is a intelligent battery status indicator that’s present not only on the Lock screen, but also in Notification Center. That way you can see just how much battery life is remaining at a glance.
The Smart Battery case for the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro also supports Qi wireless charging. And the case also has a dedicated camera button on the side, which will quickly launch the camera app.
The Smart Battery Case is available now for $129.99 in Black or White.
The Apatronix battery case is only available for the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro (not the iPhone 11 Pro Max). With that in mind, this battery case offers a large 5,000mAh external battery (4,200mAh for the iPhone 11 Pro). You still have access to the Lightning port on the bottom of your phone as well.
This battery case also supports Qi wireless charging, and you can charge both the case and the phone at the same time. The Alpatronix battery case offers 360-degree protection, fully covering the sides and back of the phone. It also has raised bezels to protect not only the display up front, but also the cameras on the back. The case also comes with a tempered screen protector, too.
The Alpatronix battery case for the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro is available now for $39.95.
This protective case from Pelican offers a two-layer protective design, and passed the MIL-STD-810G military drop test, which means it can survive falls from up to 10 feet (three meters). The design is meant to disperse any shock the case might receive, helping to protect your iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max.
The Pelican case supports wireless charging, and it has a unique design to support that external battery pack. It’s actually magnetic — and detachable. This external battery actually attaches when you need it, offering between 38% to 51% of additional power. There is a USB port on the external battery case, too, which means you can charge other supported devices, too.
Because the external battery pack is separate, you can buy this case without it if you so desire. And there is also an option to include a car vent mount, as well as a wireless charging vent mount.
At the time of publication, the Pelican case with the battery pack is available for the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. It’s currently unavailable for the iPhone 11.
The Newdery battery case for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max offers the similar features as other cases, including light indicators on the back to see the battery pack’s remaining charge. It supports Qi wireless charging, which allows you to support charging both the battery pack and the phone.
The battery case itself features a 5,000mAh battery (4,800mAh for the iPhone 11 Pro), which Newdery states will give your iPhone 100% extra battery life. It offers easy installation and it’s an overall slim case. It has raised bezels to protect the display, and on the inside of the case there’s a microfiber flannel interior to help prevent scratches.
The Newdery battery case is available now from Amazon.
This battery pack case from mophie is slim, lightweight, but offers just enough protection for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max — while also offering up plenty of extra juice to get through a long day. The iPhone 11’s and iPhone 11 Pro’s battery cases have a 2,000mAh external battery, while the iPhone 11 Pro Max has a 2,200mAh external battery.
Extra battery life ranges between 12 hours and 15 hours for audio listening, and up to 5 additional hours of video. You have full port access, so you’ll still be able to connect EarPods or other wired headphones. And it has a high-impact protection design. It supports wireless charging, and what mophie describes as “priority+ charging”, so that when the phone is plugged in it “directs power to the iPhone first before recharging itself. The juice pack battery case can also be wirelessly charged independent of the iPhone”.
The mophie battery pack for Apple’s newest iPhones is available now.
