I received my iPhone 10s Max Battery Case last Friday. I’m enjoying it a lot.
If you have used other battery cases like me, you will have to get use to not having to turn the case on. It stays charging your phone until the case is completely drained. One way that helped me with this is thinking that with other cases, you don’t know if they are completely charged or even will work when you turn them on. This is one issue you won’t have to worry about with Apple’s new battery case.
The same widget that shows your iPhone battery’s percentage will also show the battery case’s percentage.
On Saturday, I drained the entire battery case within six to seven hours. As a merchandiser, I use my phone for GPS, inventory counts, taking pictures, and streaming podcasts with Overcast. My phone lasted until Sunday morning. It was at 20 percent when I started charging it.
I am in my car a lot so I could keep it plugged in at those times to keep everything charged.
The iPhone and battery case will both charge on my Qi charger, but the case can’t charge by itself on the charger. If you want to charge it by itself, you will have to plug a lightning cable into it.
I have a Qi charger phone holder in my car that this battery case doesn’t work with while the phone is in it.
There isn’t a bulge on this battery case like on the one for the iPhone 7 (which can also be used with the iPhone 8). The battery is tapered down the back of the case like other battery cases.

I do find it hard to pull back the top of the case to get the phone out of it.
