Apple’s Smart Battery Cases certainly aren’t anything new. They have been around since 2015 and the iPhone 6S. However, since I have had really good success with all-day battery life using Plus and Max-sized devices since the iPhone 6, I never bought, or even tried one. Until recently, that is.
Even though the iPhone 11 Pro Max has delivered some of the best battery life that I’ve ever enjoyed, I decided to pick one up a month ago. I had some work travel coming up at the time and I can’t always count on easy charging in meeting venues. You never can tell how much you might need to use your phone to take pictures, stay connected, or for your own Internet connection. All of that can take a big toll on your battery life. I figured a little insurance would be a good idea.
