Review: I was pretty excited about reviewing this product because my husband’s phone dies very quickly. I was disappointed when the Galaxy S6 Portable Battery Case by Alegant fell short of my expectations.

As soon as we received the case we charged it fully and attached it to our phone. It was very easy to put on because the back slides up enough to plug the phone into the case without damaging the charging port of the phone or bending the connector on the case. When we put the case on, the phone was at 30%. The case charged it completely. It also doesn’t take very long to charge the case. The case did add a little extra weight to the phone but I expected this since it does need room to store the battery that recharges the phone. The edges of the case did not press onto the tempered glass screen protector that we have on the phone. I was afraid it would cause the corners to pull up but it doesn’t bother it at all.

The case doesn’t add much protection for the phone. That isn’t the reason I wanted to review this product so that wasn’t a big deal for me. I thought the kickstand was pretty handy and easy to use. However, the next day the kickstand kept opening every time I tried to lay the phone down. It would not stay closed.

I wouldn’t buy the Galaxy S6 Portable Battery Case by Alegant to use on the phone 24/7. It is really nice to have with us when my husband’s phone is dying. Unlike most portable chargers, there are no wires that make using the phone while charging awkward and hard to store. With the case, the phone is still usable and it can fit into the pocket of jeans or a purse without damaging the phone. The only negative thing I found was the kickstand. It is the reason I gave this case a 4-star review. I use my kickstand all the time so this was an important feature for me as a reviewer. On the other hand, my husband doesn’t care at all. He actually removed the kickstand and uses the case without it.
