You can never have enough battery power, especially when an iPhone is involved, so what do you get if you have an iPhone 6 Plus? How about the ENERGI Sliding Power Case from TYLT – here is our two minute review.
TYLT describe the power case:
“It’s no question the iPhone 6 Plus is a big phone, even causing fashion brands to consider enlarging the pockets on jeans. This is where the TYLT Energi Sliding Power case shines, providing an additional 3500 mAh of useable power in a removable, slide-off design – similar to how a rocket ditches its booster. The Energi’s dual layer co-molded inner case protects both the front and back of your phone from serious drops, ensuring your phone is never left unprotected, yet remains streamlined to fit into your pants pocket.”
Battery: 3500mAh Lithium Polymer
Warranty: 1 Year
What’s in the Box?
The box contains the power sleeve, the inner case, a charging cable and some paperwork.
A Closer Look
Using the ENERGI Sliding Power Case
The inner sleeve fits snugly around the iPhone 6 Plus and doesn’t really add much to it’s bulk, but certainly adds to it’s protection.
To use the charging sleeve, just slide the iPhone in and press the button on the back of the sleeve to start charging.
One of the iPhone’s biggest problems has always been it’s battery life. I have been using iPhone’s now since they came out and each time Apple release a new model I hope they have sorted the battery issues. One of the reasons I went for the iPhone 6 Plus was the larger battery, and for the most part I have been happy. That said, who doesn’t want the added assurance of an additional battery so I was very happy to test out the ENERGI Sliding Power Case.
The first thing to note is that is is a power case and a separate sleeve, so for the most part you can just use the inner sleeve to give your iPhone 6 Plus some much deserved protection. It is lightweight, sturdy and durable and I was confident that my iPhone was protected.
The power case itself is also very lightweight. It contains a 3,500mAh battery which doubles the battery life of your iPhone 6 Plus, and I can say for the few days of rigorous testing I did I had no battery issues when using it.
There is a button on the rear of the case that has four lights to show you the amount of power available (it’s also used to start the charging). Once you start the charge it charges pretty quickly, which is always an added bonus.
One thing to note is that when the iPhone 6 Plus is in the case it is a lot bulkier (that said, it was fairly bulky before) and you may not want to carry it around in your trouser pocket! That is a small price to pay for power though and for those times I was walking around and charging I placed it in my coat pocked instead.
Overall I really liked the ENERGI Sliding Power Case, it does what it says on the tin, and having the added inner sleeve as part of the package rather than having to buy something extra was a smart move on the part of TYLT.
If you want to make sure you are never without power on your iPhone 6 Plus then you should definitely look to add the ENERGI Sliding Power Case to your collection.
The ENERGI Sliding Power Case for the iPhone 6 Plus (and also the iPhone 6) is available now for £89.99 from Selfridges and also zefrom Mobile Fun.
