Recommended Protective Power Case for Apple iPhone 6 Plus : Boompods 4,000 mAh PowerCase

Powered by a 2,915 mAh Lithium Polymer battery pack, the Apple iPhone 6 Plus already has decent uptime. My #SmartiPhone6Plus usually stays on for around 12 to 15 hours on 3G or LTE before needing to be recharged -- and I think that's not bad at all.

However, there are days - especially when I'm out of town, on the road, or in conferences in and outside the country - when I need my handset to stay on and not require to be plugged to an electrical outlet for more than 24 hours. And for those moments, I'm happy that I have my Boompods PowerCase.

All Boompods PowerCases have matte finish, which I like since it doesn't attract too much fingerprint grime and it allows for better grip when holding the handset.

To install it on your iPhone, you'd have to pry open the black rim of the case from the back plate. You can your your iPhone's metal SIM card tray ejector for this albeit using the thicker end or your fingernail if it's strong enough. Just insert it on the groove above the microUSB port of the case and carefully create gap between the two parts of the accessory.

You can connect your iPhone to your Mac or PC via PowerCase's microUSB port; No need to remove the accessory. Also, if you're good at shooting - like I am, you can actually plug in your Earpods to the 3.5mm audio jack without having to use the extension cable. But you want to be extra careful, go ahead and use the cord.

To be honest, though, the whole package is a bit heavy at 260 grams. But then, when I consider what this accessory does - it protects and more than doubles the uptime of my iPhone 6 Plus - for me, it's a limitation that I fully embrace.

Boompods PowerCase has cool functionality -- but what I love most about it is how elegant and sleek it looks; Its minimalist design identity complements the high-end aesthetics of the iPhone.

At Php 4,900, Boompods PowerCase for the Apple iPhone 6 Plus is not as cheap as other similar accessories you can get for this iDevice. Yes, it's expensive -- but it sure looks and feels that way. Think about this: If you have a pricey smartphone that's dear to you, why would you get a case for it that's not worthy of its value?
