Jackery Leaf iPhone Charger Case Review

Price and Where to Buy Jackery Leaf iPhone Charger Case: $30 on Amazon.

Pros:

  • Compatible with iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S
  • LED light changes color to show you charging status at a glance
  • Charges fast by using the built-in Apple Lightening Connector
  • A full charge can give your iPhone up to 110 hours of extra operating time
  • Comes with interchangeable orange and white cases
  • Easy to use—just slide your phone in and out of the case

Cons:

  • Case only protects the back of your phone—the front screen is left exposed
  • Somewhat bulky (weighs 3.4 ounces)
  • Only for newer iPhone models
  • Case cannot be charged using your regular iPhone charger—you’ll need to use the (included) USB charger

How Jackery Leaf iPhone Charger Case Rates:

  • Usefulness: 9/10. Smartphones seem to die even faster when you’re using them on the road to take pictures and videos. This case will buy you some extra time away from a power outlet.
  • Portability: 8/10. It’s nice that this charger is built in to the case, so you don’t have to carry a separate battery, but the case adds thickness and weight. (It is 5.4 inches x 2.4 inches x 0.7 inches and weighs 3.4 ounces.)
  • Value: 7/10. The case is $30 on Amazon, which is average for a rechargeable case.
  • Cool Factor: 8/10. The sleek white case looks great if you have a white iPhone.

Final Verdict: Selfies and travel apps draining your phone’s battery? Use the Jackery Leaf while you travel and never be stranded without a charge again.
