Review:  No one likes seeing a red bar on the battery indicator right in the middle of a game of Candy Crush. To prevent this, the ZVOLTZ iPhone 6 Plus Battery Case more than doubles the battery life of your beloved phone.

The black battery case arrived in an easy-to-open box, complete with a micro USB data and charge cable, a pass-through audio jack cable and a screen protector. I am not a techie, so I was really counting on the instructions to be easy enough for me to handle.

The biggest difference I noticed was the weight of the battery case. It weighs in right about 5 ounces, which creates some extra heft to the iPhone if you aren’t used to it having a heavier case. I ran into some technical difficulties trying to get my phone into the battery case because I couldn’t seem to get the bumper detached from the case. I would highly recommend some additional instructions in the user’s manual to make this a more user-friendly process.

Once I got the case installed, it was easy to charge it with the attached cord. Both the phone and the battery case can be charged at the same time, but the cord that is provided is very short. I will very likely purchase a longer cord for future use.

The battery case also came with a screen protector. While the instructions for applying the screen protector were fairly straight-forward, there were no guidelines for smoothing out the inevitable air pockets. I managed to apply the screen protector, but I got stuck with two small bubbles. After a week’s use, the top corner started to come loose. It is highly likely that I will end up replacing it with a different screen protector.

As for the battery case itself, it is very durable and performs as advertised. The cut out areas are perfectly sized to fit the iPhone 6 Plus, so I have had no problems with any of the control features or accessing my camera. With one push of a button, I can extend the battery life and crush those candies to my heart’s content.
