PRODUCT REVIEW: Zohmo iPhone Battery Case
My job keeps me very busy. Often, I’m running around the whole day texting, calling and emailing without ever returning to my desk. My iPhone will often die half way through the day or become dangerously close to dying. We all know that feeling when the battery is red and you wonder how long you have until it dies. I’ve been meaning to try a new battery case for a while but could never really find one I liked… until now.
I used to own a mophie case but there was something about it that I just didn’t like. It felt clunky and made my phone even larger than it already was. Then I thought about giving Apple a shot however, I was not ready to drop over $100 on a case either. I thought one of the next options that many go with is the cheap “Battery banks” however I didn’t want to be carrying one of those suckers around the bar, how nerdy would I have looked? Well I’m pleased to announce that I’ve found one that I really enjoy, simple to use and affordable.
Zohmo is a brand that solves the problem that everyone has and that is the case of never-ending need for more battery! I really enjoyed this Zohmo Battery Case almost instantly. The first thing I noticed was how easy it was to slip on as the very top part of it is an almost flexible material that allows you to bend it back and slip your phone in instantly. It also comes out just as easy. Check out the video later in this post where you can see how easy it is to remove your phone while still knowing it’s safe in its stylish case.
The case is also very durable. I’ve dropped my phone multiple times and so far, have not received a single crack or even a scratch. It has edge-to-edge protection with an extra lip around the screen to protect it from drops. The case provides me with total 360-degree protection.
I have one of the bigger iPhones because I’m practically blind without my glasses so the iPhone 8 Plus Battery Case was exactly what I needed to avoid feeling like I’m carrying around a brick. The slim design doesn’t extend beyond the size of my iPhone. Some of the other cases I’ve used as I mentioned, make it longer than the iPhone and even hard to grip. It adds a little bit more weight to the phone but to be honest I really enjoy that mainly because it helps me feel grounded with it and not throwing it across the room.
The case also allows me to charge it easily by using my own lighting cable. Other battery cases I’ve used before often make you use an android micro charger. This one allows me to use the cords I already own! Yup, that’s right. No extra cables are needed. That also means you can use your apple headphones with the lighting cable hook up. And, it’s super easy to access!
Whenever my phone is getting low on juice, all I need to do is click a small button on the back of the case and it begins charging instantly. Also, it charges all the way up to 100%, I’ve tested it multiple times. The back of the case features four light up buttons that correspond with how much battery you have left.
Zohmo offers a car kit as well that allow you to set your phone up in your car. I have a Ford Focus that has the built in Car play mode where I can play my choice of music apps, I’m a Spotify fan, what about you?
The car kit offers car vent mount that works with the battery case and a couple extra metal plates that you can slip in between your phone and any standard case you own which then attaches right to the car vent mount. The mount makes it super easy to see your phone’s GPS making for a safer more efficient commute. This allows for safe driving while also still being able to enjoy your phones uses like music and being able to easily answer it.
Also, if you buy the case with the car kit you get a premium braided lighting cable. I will admit that this cord does come in handy to leave in my living room so then my lovely cat doesn’t rip it to shreds. It also comes with a 90-day peace of mind warranty… just in case. The warranty is super easy and takes less than 1 minute to register!
Zohmo also offers a variety of cases for every type of iPhone. They include cases for:
iPhone XS Max
iPhone 8 Plus
iPhone 7 Plus
iPhone 6S Plus
iPhone 6 Plus
My last and major point about this case is how affordable it is. Some battery cases can be upward of anywhere between $100 to $200 dollars, which is way out of my price range. My case was only $59.99 and if you order online, they offer FREE expedited shipping in the USA! Zohmo also offers a money-back guarantee within 30 days.
Although Zohmo gave me free product, all opinions are my own.
