These are the Best iPhone 12 Battery Cases in Summer 2021: Give your device more juice!

The average battery life of an iPhone 12 is rated for eight hours on a single charge. While many users might be perfectly content with that, you might not be — especially if you’re a heavy user. If you’re having a long day and you’re nowhere near a power socket, you’re going to need some way of boosting that battery until you get home. That’s why you need some extra juice, either in the form of a portable charger or integrated within your iPhone case as a battery pack. Battery cases are affordable battery boosters that attach to your iPhone and provide hours of extra power to keep you going. There are downsides though – some packs can be bulky, block wireless charging and Apple CarPlay can also be affected in some cases. 

But if that doesn’t bother you, here are our picks of some of the best battery cases available for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. They’re cheap, stylish, and you never know when you are going to need them the most.

    Alpatronix

    Wireless charging

    Alpatronix stands out because it allows wireless charging (unlike many other battery packs). Charge your phone on a QI charger and then the battery pack will charge itself using the same charger.
    Allezru

    120% battery life

    This doesn't support Apple CarPlay but it does claim to give you an extended battery life of up to 120%. This is equivalent to 32 hours of extra talk time. If you don't use CarPlay, this would be a top contender.
    Zttopo

    Versatile

    Featuring a 5,000mAh battery in a well-built hybrid structure of TPU and polycarbonate, Zttopo ensures you will never run out of juice in the middle of the day. It also has a kickstand to keep your hands free while watching content or taking video calls.
    BOMT

    Boost your battery by 2x

    BOMT’s battery case comes with a large 6,800mAh battery, enough to fully charge your iPhone more than twice. It’s super easy to install and comes with a safe-circuit design to prevent overheating, overcharging and short circuiting the battery.
    ZeroLemon

    Wireless charging & 120% power

    ZeroLemon gives you the best of both worlds - wireless charging and up to 120% more power. It's also compatible with Apple CarPlay which vaults this battery case to the top of the pack.
    Luowan

    Smart LED Indicators

    As well as a more powerful battery charge, Luowan also provides a Smart LED Indicator which shows you how much battery you have left - 25%, 50%...etc. You can also switch off the battery pack without having to remove it.
    SNSOU

    180% battery life

    SNSOU claims their product can provide up to 180% more battery life with a stronger than normal battery voltage. It also has a Smart LED indicator showing how much battery you have left. The only downside is that this pack does not support wireless charging.
    MAXBEAR

    Boost your battery by 2.5x

    Unlike other cases in this list, which may come across as a bit boring with their all-black colorway, MAXBEAR’s battery case comes in an eye-catching blue and white color scheme. You get a large 7,000mAh battery, providing up to 150% extra juice and CarPlay support.
    Jerss

    Faster charging

    No wireless charging or CarPlay but Jerss does provide a powerful battery which will charge your phone in no time. LED lights will show you at all times the progress of the charge. You can also sync your phone to your MacBook without removing the battery case.
    Newdery

    Apple Pay supported

    If you are a regular user of Apple Pay, using the Newdery battery pack doesn't mean having to take the pack on and off your phone. Apple Pay contactless payments still work with the pack attached.
    Weijie

    No bulge

    Double your battery life without adding any unsightly bulge with this compact battery case from Weijie. The case can be powered on with a click of a button and has discrete LEDs that tells you how much juice is still left in the tank.
    Tengroad

    200% charge!

    As if it is a competition to outdo everyone else, Tengroad claims their battery pack provides 200% more charge to your phone. LED charging lights and the ability to switch off the battery pack without removing it makes it one to seriously consider.
    Slabao

    A kickstand

    This has all the usual battery charging features as all the others. But what makes Slabao unique is that the battery pack comes with a kickstand attached. So while the battery is charging, you can prop up the phone on its stand and view the screen, hands-free.

With so many iPhone 12 battery cases out there, it can be difficult to find the best one. But we believe you’ll surely find a perfect case for your iPhone 12 / Pro from our list. Each battery case has a unique selling point whether it supports wireless charging, Apple CarPlay, Apple Pay, or the ability to sync your iPhone to your MacBook.

Some of these cases can be bulky. However, we do have some options from BOMT, MAXBEAR, and Weijie that claim to be less bulky than their counterparts. If you’re a power user, the advantage of extra battery power will likely outweigh the inconvenience of a bit more heft. Since these cases are likely to always be on your iPhone, you will get much more peace of mind as opposed to carrying a portable charger. So pick one that suits your needs and stop worrying about running out of juice.
