Review: Incipio Ghost Qi for iPhone 6

Incipio’s Ghost Qi ($100) is the company’s newest iPhone 6 battery case. A wireless charging case, Ghost Qi recharges using a compatible Qi charging base, though there’s also a micro-USB port for charging — Incipio sells its own Qi charging bases for $40 or more. Ghost Qi’s 2100 mAh battery claims to deliver an 80 percent charge to an iPhone 6. Ghost Qi boasts button coverage, and a co-molded design with a brushed back — it’s nearly identical to Incipio’s offGRID Shine case.

Ghost Qi delivered a slightly better charge than expected, restoring 84 percent of an iPhone 6’s depleted battery in about an hour and a half. We saw no issues with recharging, either, whether using the Qi base or the case’s micro-USB port. Of course, considering there’s no widespread iPhone support for Qi, going this route is a big commitment for one particular battery case.

Much like its offGRID Shine twin, Ghost Qi is an attractive battery case and it works well. But considering the higher price, the need for a Qi base, and the relatively low-capacity battery, you have to be sure that wireless charging is important to your needs — otherwise, you’ll be better off with a more traditional battery case.
