Design of the iPhone Smart Battery Case
As far the design of the iPhone Smart Battery Case is concerned, the phone easily fits into it. The case can also be separately charged and has got an indication light to show charging. The light turns green when fully charged.
The case extends below the phone with its own lightning connector. Provisions are made for other parts such as mic, speaker and headphone jack.
