iPhone fans love their phones, but even the most die-hard Apple fanboy sometimes drools over the bigger batteries in Android Land. Thankfully there are an array of battery-boosting cases available for the iPhone line.

(Mophie)

Our top pick for the best battery case for iPhone 5s users is the Mophie Space Pack.

The Mophie Space Pack made Digital Trends’ list of the top 40 iPhone 5s cases. Not only does the Mophie Space Pack provide extended battery life, but it provides extended storage as well. The Space Pack case is available for $149.95 for the 16GB variety, but there is also a 32GB case for an additional $30.

PROS: The Space Pack effectively doubles the battery life of an iPhone 5s with a 1700mAh battery, and maintains a fairly slim profile to boot.

CONS: The Space Pack is a bit pricey, and may not appeal to people who don’t store a lot of files or music on their phone to begin with.

(Incipio)

Our top pick for the best battery case for iPhone 5c users is the Incipio offGRID.

The Incipio offGRID is a solid option for iPhone 5c owners who want an additional 1700mAh battery to draw power from. The battery adds approximately 8 hours of talk time.

PROS: Retails for $69.99, which is relatively inexpensive for a battery case. Plus, it’s available in multiple colors.

CONS: Doesn’t appear to be available on the Incipio website anymore, possibly due to soft iPhone 5c sales. You can still find them online at other retailers, however.

(iBattz)

Our top pick for the best battery case for iPhone 5 users is the iBattz Mojo Refuel.

What makes iBattz Mojo Refuel so cool is the fact that the battery itself is removable. That means you can carry multiple spare batteries on the go, and insert them into the battery case as each one wears down. This makes the case perfect for people who are constantly on the go.

PROS: Removable batteries! Plus, MacWorld notes that this particular case can be augmented with a $20 Mojo Refuel Armor Kit, a rugged outer shell that blocks dust and water.

CONS: Some reviewers disliked the use of cut-outs in the design.

(BOOST Case)

Our top pick for the best battery case for iPhone 4s users is the Boost Case, though we also like the Boost Case Plus.

The Boost Case line made CNET’s list of the best iPhone 4/4s cases. It costs just over $50, and boasts a 1,700 mAH battery. The Boost Case Plus features a 2,200 mAH battery, but costs $10 more.

PROS: One of the cheapest cases on our list, but still very popular with iPhone users. Effectively doubles the battery life of your phone.

CONS: Ho-hum case design that lacks personality and verve. No longer available on the Boost Case site, as the phone it supports is an older model. Up until fairly recently, you could find these cases easily on sites like Amazon. These days, it’s a bit tougher to score. Check out the link below to see a comparable battery case.
