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.

Hackintosh Boot Flags

If this is your first time building or making a Hackintosh, boot flags may seem like a foreign concept. Once you understand what each of them means, you can get started!
Clover Boot Flags:Verbose Mode:

 -v 
Safe Mode:

 -x 
Single User Mode:

 -s 
Zone Postponing: (use if hanging)

 -no-zp 
Single CPU core mode:

 cpus=1 
No Kext Cache Mode: (When changing kexts)

 -f 
Disables VT-x or VT-d:

 dart=0 
Verbose Mode:

 -v 
Enable NVIDIA Web Drivers: (do not use with nv_disable=1)

 nvda_drv=1 
Disable NVIDIA graphics cards: (do not use with nvda_drv=1)

 nv_disable=1 
Kext Dev Mode:

 kext-dev-mode=1 
Rootless Mode:  Do not boot with this on El Capitan or macOS Sierra

 rootless=0  If you're stuck at [PCI Configuration Began]:

 npci=0x2000   npci=0x3000 
Set Maximum Memory (RAM): (In megabytes)

 maxmem=4096   maxmem=8192

Hackintosh iMessage Tutorial

iMessage Tutorial on El Capitan and Yosemite Works on OS X 10.10+ Requires Clover boot loader, and has been tested up to macOS 10.12
Clover Configurator: http://mackie100projects.altervista.org/download/


Sometimes Necessary: Set Up Network Configuration
IMPORTANT:Make sure that your primary network is set as en0. A lot of the time, this is a major issue and is often overlooked. If you use WiFi as your primary network, it has to be en0. Open System Profiler, click Ethernet or Wifi, depending on how you receive your internet, and make sure the network is listed as en0. If not, delete NetworkInterfaces.plist and Preferences.plist in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration.  In many cases, this is unnecessary.


How To Get iMessage Working on Yosemite and El Capitan Download Clover Configurator and run the program.

For the tutorial, I've selected the iMac 8,1, but I do not recommend it.
