Does the Apple Smart Battery Case provide good drop protection?

I was thinking of getting an Apple Smart Battery Case but was worried about how much drop protection it provides.

If anyone has any experience with drops while using a Smart Battery Case on your iPhone 6 or 6s, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks!

It's just silicone and makes no drop protection claims, so I'm thinking not much. I don't have firsthand experience, but there's little/no cushioning. It's scrape and scratch protection, but I wouldn't expect much in terms of drops.

Thanks. That's what I was afraid of.

Does anyone know of battery cases that do provide good drop protection without turning the phone into a brick? ;)

It's super thick silicon, I would imagine it does really well for drop protection. I have the battery case and trust it more than most of my other cases if I were to drop it.
