There are quite a number of charging cases for the iPhone lately and these are basically cases with a built in external battery or power bank. They come in a variety of sizes and thicknesses but the one from Proker that I received to review is probably the thinnest one of all the iPhone 6 battery cases that I reviewed. This case has a 2500mAh battery and can just about charge your iPhone 6 a full time. The battery case does have a lightning connector itself so that you can just plug in your normal lightning cable and it will charge your phone, then when your phone is fully charged it will start charging the case. If you want to charge both separately at the same time pull your phone out of the Proker Battery Case and use two cables to charge them both simultaneously.
The case opens at the top and you simply slide your phone in and snap it into place. The phone gives minor protection on the back and sides/corners but is generally not an an impact proof case and does not protect the screen at all, so it provides minor protection mostly from scratches and really light dings.
Here is the full Video Review of the Proker iPhone 6 Battery Case also Showing Phone Being put in the case.
The external battery case for the iPhone 6 from Proker features 4 indicator lights on the back of the case and a power button, pressing the power button turns on the case which causes it to start charging your phone. The case comes in 3 colors, Blue, Black and Rose Gold and generally is a great gift for someone who talks a lot on the phone and is always on the go not being able to get to an AC outlet for long periods of time. It also spares the inconvenience of having to sport a separate external battery where even a lipstick battery has to have a cord and be separate from your phone and carried together with it.

The only thing I noticed about the case is that when the iPhone 6 is using the case and charging while in use, the back of the case can get pretty warm, but I didn’t think it got dangerous warm, I played games while charging to make sure I could cause as much CPU usage as possible to make the device hot. I would say it may warm up a pocket and heat up your leg, but I didn’t determine that it would cause a fire risk during my testing.
