    With the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, Apple didn't increase battery life over the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, which means battery cases are going to remain a popular accessory for at least another year. In our latest video review, we went hands on with the ibattz Mojo Refuel Invictus battery case, which will fit the iPhone 6s Plus or the iPhone 6 Plus.

    The ibattz is equipped with two removable and replaceable 3,000 mAh batteries, for a total capacity of 6,000 mAh. Each one of the batteries has enough juice to charge an iPhone 6 Plus or 6s Plus about 70 percent of the way, so combined, there's enough power to keep an iPhone going for a couple of days.


    With two batteries in the Invictus Refuel case, it's quite heavy, but we didn't think the case itself was too bulky considering it's housing multiple batteries. There's a power button at the bottom of the case with LEDs for each battery, so you can get an idea of how much battery is left at a glance. The case itself recharges using micro-USB.

    We liked the power this case provided, but we weren't a fan of the construction of the case itself. The materials felt a bit cheap and we were worried we'd break it putting it on the iPhone. The bulk of the phone also rendered the mute switch unusable due to a faulty mute switch on the case itself, so this is probably a case most users are going to want to pass on.

    The Mojo Refuel Invictus for the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s Plus is available from the ibattz website for $129.95.

    Well, knowing that I can get 2 days comfortably and I could probably easily squeeze 3 out of my 6S+ with the stock battery. Imagine the damage I could do with an extended case.


    I actually do like the fact that it's 2 separate cells so I'm guessing you could work with only 1 if you don't need that much extra juice?

    After that review, I imagine not, lol

    In all seriousness though, these unadorned reviews are exactly what we need; they can save us heartache.....

    Means you can charge your iPhone with likely the most common charger on the planet. In a friend's car or at their place. Far easier to find that a Lightning cable.

    It's really about price. Apple charges a LOT for a manufacturer to include a female Lightning receptacle on their device (more than the normal charger tip). A lot cheaper to go this direction.

    MOTA iPhone 6/6 Plus (works on the S also) is far cheaper ($39) and doubles my battery life. Love mine. Construction is good and it offers a number of different surround colors (also includes a clean one with every different color option). Been using their battery cases since the iPhone 4.
