Is there any high quality alternative to the Apple case? All the options seem a lot cheaper, but, junky looking.

Leaning towards just getting the Apple case, but generally like more protective cases too hence not crazy about the silicone either.

Thoughts?

I've been using external Anker batteries for years and years. I put them in my backpack - they make a great travel companion and don't make my phone any bigger. The Xs MAX is already really big, I think if I were to make it any bigger it would diminish my enjoyment of the device. But travel season for my work hasn't started yet so I may yet change my mind. Just putting an alternative out there for ya.

Some of those 10,000 mAh Anker batteries are really small.

For me it’s the best of both worlds. I carry the case with me and when I need it I throw it on. I love the battery integration with the existing battery. The silicone is protective and cover all of the phone. I’ve dropped it a few times and nothing has happened to the case or the phone. Highly recommended it.

I recently bought the black one. I’m in love!

I have only a concern, as the case is charging constantly the iPhone, will the iPhone battery will damage?

Thanks

I am crazy about having a protective case, I use the OtterBox Defender daily, I bought the battery case for when I travel and it seems pretty protective the only weakness is the front lip is not raised enough in my opinion. I'd be confident with all drops other than a faceplant with it.
