It’s no secret that the iPhone 4S has horrible battery life. It won’t last a whole day if you use it constantly. Because of that, many users are hassled because they have to bring their chargers around just to make sure their iPhones don’t die on them.
That old iPhone of yours definitely lasts longer than the 4S. If it’s an iPhone 4, you’re lucky. You get 300 hours of standby time. With the iPhone 4S, you’re only given 200 hours.
But over time, your iPhone’s battery will give out. It’s best to sell your old iPhone and get the 4S. You’ll get all the latest features such as a wonderful camera, and a new OS.
If you’re still skeptical whether you should sell your old iPhone or not, don’t be afraid. Just because you know that the battery life of the iPhone 4S isn’t really stellar, doesn’t mean there’s no solution to it.
Fortunately, there’s a way to counter the not – so – good battery life of the iPhone 4S, and that is through the use of external battery packs. They come in different designs, but the best ones come in the form of cases. Not only do they extend the life of your iPhone 4S, but protect it too.
Now let’s take a look at the best battery cases you can buy.
This case is a popular choice among iPhone 4S users thanks to its simple and elegant back.
It has a powerful 1,700 mAH battery inside it. At the most it’ll double the battery life of your iPhone. There’s also a Boost Case Plus which features a 2,200 mAH battery.
There’s also the Boost Case Hybrid with a 1,900 mAH that’s detachable, and it sells for 48 dollars.
This is a unique battery case for the iPhone. It’s most notable feature is that it uses solar technology to charge the battery in the case. It’s great if you’re looking for a cost – effective way of charging.
It does, however, sell for a price of 80 dollars.
The Incipio OffGrid is great because it’s only 2 ounces and measures 9.6 mm thick. It’s affordable at 45 dollars, but the downside is that it only has a 1,450 mAH battery, giving it a shorter battery life than its competitors.
iBattz Mojo Removable
The iBattz Mojo Removable comes with a removable 1,500 mAH battery that you place under the back cover. It sells for 80 dollars, making it quite pricey, but you do get two batteries, which can extend the life of your iPhone even longer. If you happen to have a bag with you, you can bring it along.
The PhoneSuite Elite is quite pricey at 69 dollars, but this is one case that has an elegant design. It’s also billed as the “thinnest, fastest charging iPhone 4/4S battery case” with a beefy 2,100 mAH battery. That’s higher than most competitors.
These are the best battery cases for your iPhone 4S. They all offer substantial battery life which will definitely come in handy if you find yourself on a long trip.
