#i-Blason Battery Case iPhone 6 Plus - Review:

My husband got me this last Christmas and I was so happy and excited especially since my iPhone could never make it through a day. I literally had to charge my iPhone 6 Plus 3 times a day because I was always on it for calls from family, doctors, and the school. Using my calendar to put in appointments and checking the weather that day. And of course texting workers and family. Three times seems excessive but if I didn't start charging my phone once it hit 3% I was screwed. I would sometimes get disconnected from calls and never got to save appointments before it would die. Anyway long story short and on to my Review. 

I was using the battery case all the time and I loved it. I only had to recharge my phone once a day using the battery pack as long as it was fully charged during the night. I took the case off to charge it during the night instead of keeping it on and charging both simultaneously because the iPhone would take more from the battery pack so one or the other was not getting fully charged during the night if I didn't take the case off. But that is not where my problem is. The bezel the would hold the phone in the case was actually quite un-solid and broke after so long (not even 1/3rd a year because of it I really cannot use the case as I would like. I tried to see if I could buy a new bezel piece instead of having to re-buy the product but could not. 

The case does add a bit of weight and thickness to the phone but it does not bother me. It does have an anti-slip rubberized finish that kind of feels like satin. 

Now I really do love this case but I am sorry, I am not going to re-buy the whole case when I have the battery part that still works. Maybe not a whole 100% since after so long the battery gets used and never will be 100% capacity though it might say that but with wear and tear you will see, anything with a battery and with extended use all the time loses charge quickly and the actual capacity of the battery itself dwindles. I don't have the kind of money to replace or even have a second battery case at $60. Now sure it doesn't sound like much but when you think about that fact that the bezel only lasted about 1/3rd a year then broke, the fact that charging the case and phone together wastes more time and power and one doesn't get charged fully because one is taking more power from the other and the fact that it is $60 is just really not feasible. 

I am giving 4 stars because I can still use the battery case without the bezel but the phone is not secure.

One other thing I wish was possible but is not being taken away from the stars is the fact that I wish there was a holster that would fit this battery case so I could still wear it on my pants or attach to my bag. But because that was not even an option that cannot take away from the stars. 

Also, I would like to mention that the case is not drop proof meaning that this case provides little protection to the phone because it will come apart if dropped and the phone can and may get damaged.
