Mobee Technology’s Magic Case 6 ($80) is a new battery case for, you guessed it, iPhone 6. The thick 2800 mAh case, which uses a two-piece slider design, lacks button coverage. A power button is located on the back of Magic Case, with four lights denoting battery life remaining within the case. A micro-USB port on the bottom of the case allows it to charge using the included cable. However, if you’ve already got Mobee’s Magic Charger or Magic Feet, Magic Case can also use inductive charging from those products. Magic Case 6 comes in black or gray.
Mobee’s Magic Case 6 delivered a full 100 percent charge to a depleted iPhone 6 in a quick 1 hour and 51 minutes. After a partial discharge, the case restored another 13 percent to the phone’s battery, for a 113 percent total recharge. We didn’t test the case’s inductive charging capabilities, but if you’ve got other Mobee products, that feature would certainly be of some interest.
Magic Case 6’s battery performance and price tag are right in line with competitors. However, the case lacks button coverage and is a bit thicker and bulkier than it needs to be. Most users would likely be better off with a thinner, more protective battery case. But Mobee’s Magic Case 6 does its job admirably for a fair price, and will probably particularly appeal to those who have already invested in other Mobee products, earning it our limited recommendation.
