ZeroLemon Apple iPhone 6 Slim Juicer Battery Case Review
      #47582 - 01/16/15 09:13 PM

The ZeroLemon Slim Juicer Battery Case for the iPhone 6 is an external battery that's also a protective case. The built-in rechargeable battery is 3100mAh in capacity and comes in two parts for easy installation. The battery case comes in black with soft touch coating.



Design

The ZeroLemon Slim Juicer Battery Case has a two-piece design that includes a sturdy hard shell frame with the battery inside and a more flexible top cover that snaps onto the frame and protects the sides and corners of the iPhone 6. The design makes the battery case easy to install: just slide your phone into the battery plate and connect to the built-in Lightning connector, and then snap on the top. Taking the case off requires separating the snaps which isn't too hard to do. Start with one of the top corners and use your fingernail to separate the top from the frame. The case adds small amount of bulk and it's quite slim among battery cases. The ZeroLemon battery case can protect your phone from scratches and bumps while it's being charged and it only weighs 3.6 ounces. The exterior of the case is smooth but not slippery. The battery case has a power button on the back near the bottom next to the four small LEDs that indicate battery levels and charging status.



Features

The ZeroLemon Slim Juicer Battery Case offers the iPhone 6 3100mAh more power and it takes less than an hour to fully charge the phone. The battery doesn't automatically initiate the charge when you connect it to the phone and you must press the power button to turn charging on. With the battery at full capacity, the ZeroLemon can charge the iPhone 6 for at least two full cycles. The battery has built-in protective IC circuit that prevents over charging, short circuits and other malfunctions.



The ZeroLemon Slim Juicer is an adequate case while it's charging your phone. The case offers a long cutout for the rear camera and flash which affords the lens a full view and the flash to fully illuminate. The case has a cutout for the silence slider and the 3.5mm audio jack, though the audio port has to go through the thicker bottom portion. It's a good thing that the ZeroLemon comes with a 3.5mm audio plug extender as most of your 3.5mm headphone plugs will not fit in the small opening. Since the battery case blocks the Lightning port and the bottom side of the iPhone 6, it offers two front facing speaker grilles to let audio through. The case has a micro USB charging port at the bottom and comes with a USB/micro USB charging cable. The only thing on the case that's hard to use is the volume rocker which is quite stiff and takes some effort to press down.



Conclusion

The ZeroLemon Slim Juicer Battery Case for the iPhone 6 is one of the slimmer external battery cases we've seen and it's quite light. It can give your iPhone 6 two full charges and fill up one full charging cycle within 2 hours. We like the sturdy built and the front firing speaker grilles. If you're looking for something slim and light to take with you on a short trip or during your daily long commute, this slim battery case might be just the ticket. The only flaw is the stiff volume rocker that's hard to use.



Editor's Ratings (1-5): 4.5
What's Hot: Easy to use, looks nice and slim.
What's Not: Volume rocker is hard to use and you must use the audio extender with your headphones.
