Bauhn iPhone Charging Case Review


The $25 USD Bauhn iPhone Charging Case (for iPhone 6/6S) is adequate for the price, well below the $80 price tag of competing Mophie cases. The top piece slides off, allowing the phone to slip into place. Although no specific mAh is given, it claims to add 150% battery to the phone, which in my testing, is not true. I do, however, get about an 80% charge with minor use from 1%. For $25, this is not a bad purchase and will get you through the day with about the same amount of power as the Apple Charging Case for the iPhone 6S. It includes a headphone extender and a short micro USB cable. In my case, it did not even fit the port. I had to use another cord I had lying around.

Pros:

  • Solid build quality
  • Only $25 USD
  • Proper speaker and microphone grills that redirect the sound to the front of the device
  • Not overly bulky
  • Hold the button for 3 seconds to enable or disable the charging

Cons:

  • The micro USB cable it came with does not fit the case
  • Only charges 70-80% before dying
  • Heavy
  • Requires headphone jack extender (it is included, however)

The Bauhn Charging Case is also available for the iPhone 5/5S/SE. I also tried this case, and it was a lot better. After draining the battery from a 5S the case was able to fully charge it and might have been able to charge it for a while longer. Every micro USB cable I connected to it fit snuggly unlike the iPhone 6/6S counterpart. While in part these advantages are due to the thicker and smaller design, it would not have been impossible to incorporate it into larger cases.

The Bauhn iPhone Charging Case for iPhone 6/6S gets a 7 out of 10 rating from me because of the loose-fitting USB cable and sub-par battery life performance, but it makes up for a lot with its low cost. On the other hand, the iPhone 5/5S/SE case is far better and gets a 9 out of 10 and I would recommend it to anyone in the market.
