Best battery cases for Samsung Galaxy S6

Choosing a battery case for your Galaxy S6

What's the best battery case for Galaxy S6?

We know the Galaxy S6 doesn't have the best battery life, and though wireless and quick charging help minimize that issue, it doesn't help when you're mobile. Cases that integrate external batteries can potentially fix battery woes, and while they aren't a new idea, they may be on your radar for the first time since picking up a Galaxy S6.

We've rounded up a handful of popular battery case options for the Galaxy S6 and put them side-by-side to see which one offers the best trade-off on battery, size, protection and value — here's how they rank!

Mophie Juice Pack (3,300 mAh)

Mophie Juice Pack

Mophie is sort of the gold standard when it comes to battery cases, and while that started with iPhone battery cases, it has smoothly transitioned to models for popular Android phones as well. There are two distinct Juice Pack models to fit the Galaxy S6 or S6 edge (and different color choices), but in either configuration they offer full device protection with a single case that also integrates a battery.

The Juice Pack is dramatically better made than any of the offerings here, as you'd expect for the increased price. It has a hard plastic shell that's rigid and tough, and on the inside has a soft touch coating to hold the phone tightly.

The Galaxy S6 fits in it with amazing precision, with just a very small lip over the front of the phone. It's just as large as any other battery case, and while the hard plastic coating is slicker it does have some grip to it. There's a standard "chin" at the bottom where the USB port joins up with the phone, and because of its thickness there's a headphone extension jack to use if you don't have headphones with a small jack on them.

The 3300 mAh capacity lands between the other cases in this roundup, and Mophie gives it the claim of "up to 100 percent" additional battery for your GS6. Just like your phone's internal battery, it's rated for 500 full recharges, and you choose when to have it powering your phone with a convenient hardware switch on the back.

We tested the Juice Pack's capacity just the same as the others and found it added 90% battery to the phone in just under three hours, even while the phone was in use on mobile data. That's not bad — it charged more and faster than the other cases, despite having a smaller overall capacity. That just shows what you can get from the higher quality components in the Juice Pack.

It's pretty clear that if money is no object, the Mophie is the best choice, simply due to its fantastic build quality, slick design and highly-rated battery. Of course price is a factor for most picking up a battery case, and $99.95 is a steep asking price for something you may not want to use all of the time.

PowerBear Extended rechargeable battery juice pack (3,500 mAh)

PowerBear

PowerBear's 3,500 mAh juice pack is a one-piece case that allows you to charge it and your Galaxy S6 simultaneously, all in a sleek and slim package that won't add a ton of weight to your pocket, which is really what you want out of a battery case, since they're supposed to be "power on the go".

PowerBear claims that you get an extra 130% charge out of this case, but it's more like the ZeroLemon case in this roundup – you're more likely to get about 50%, taking anywhere from three to four hours to charge.

This case has a handy on/off switch, so that you're not wasting power when you don't need to, which makes it a great everyday case or an excellent emergency case.

The PowerBear's design is pretty typical, but it's still fairly thin for a battery case and it fits quite seamlessly, so if you like your Galaxy S6 to be in a case but not feel that way, then the PowerBear is likely the best choice for you.

If you regularly kill your phone before day's end and want a battery case that will last you a while, then check this one out, since PowerBear offers a 2-year warranty, which should get you through the lifespan of your Galaxy S6 until you upgrade.

ZeroLemon Slim Power battery case (3,500 mAh)

ZeroLemon

The ZeroLemon Slim Power Battery isn't quite the same setup as the others, as its battery and case are actually separate. The 3,500 mAh battery is a self-contained slab that has two USB ports on it — one for input, the other output — and a removable U-shaped USB connector so that it nestles up against the back of a Galaxy S6. The case is just a basic rubber affair, but it's designed so that the battery and phone can be held together inside comfortably while charging.

The battery is fully operational with other cables and can be used without the case, though the implication is that you'll be using the whole thing together most of the time. The case itself wraps the whole phone for a bit more protection than others, but the design means that the ZeroLemon setup is larger than others and offers a lower capacity. It also ships with a headphone jack extension cable due to its size, which is burdensome to say the least.

It has similar charge rates to the others, and when combined with the simple 3,500 mAh cell it was only able to charge up the Galaxy S6 by 50% — and that took about 3 hours and 45 minutes to do it. That's not very fast, and for a battery case that's bigger (and more expensive) than some of the others we expected to get a little more out of it.

The one benefit ZeroLemon has going for it is an explicit 180-day warranty — how much value you actually put in that is up to you.

Consider whether a battery case is even the best choice

Now that you know there are dozens of very similar battery cases to choose from for the Galaxy S6, you should probably take a step back before buying and decide whether a battery case is the best choice for you. The basic idea of having a battery case is the same for any phone — make it easier to stay mobile while also having a phone that isn't dead. Strapping the battery to your phone of course accomplishes that goal, but as we've seen it isn't a perfect situation.

Though there are differences between each battery case, they all present very similar problems in terms of actual use. No matter the size of the battery, adding an external cell in a big rubber and plastic case seriously hurts your ability to use the Galaxy S6 like you would normally. Being able to recharge your phone without a cable is great — but if you have to nearly double the weight and thickness of your phone for the whole time you charge, it isn't that great of a trade-off.

Read: Top external batteries for the Galaxy S6

The concept of not having to worry about power or plugging in is an appealing one, but a battery case may not be the best way to handle this problem. If you have the right equipment, chances are you'll be far better off getting a 50 percent charge in 30 minutes from a quick charger when you're in your home, office or car. And when you have to be mobile, an external battery pack can charge your phone (and tablet, and friend's phone) for the same price and in one-fourth the time that these battery cases can — and when you're done charging there's no added bulk to your phone.

With wall charging and external batteries you're helping fix the battery issues while also reducing the number of additional issues you add to the experience — that can't be said about a battery case. For all but the most serious of road warriors who just cannot afford the time to plug in at any point during the day, a wall plug or battery will be the best choice. But if you're in that small minority that needs it, give these battery cases a look and find the best model for you.

Fugoo Tough XL Bluetooth Speaker

When big just isn't big enough.

Whether you're trying to make the most of limited time out in the wilderness or just need hardware that can take a beating from every day life, there's definitely a market for extra-sturdy speakers. We've had a look at a wide range of rugged Bluetooth speakers to complement such rough-and-tumble environs, but the Fugoo Tough XL is easily one of the most impressive we've seen of the bunch.

It's a system that consists of two parts: a waterproof speaker and a removable sleeve that provides hardcore impact protection. The exterior bears a gruff design, aluminum and stainless steel construction, big hardware playback buttons, and a collection of mounting options.

It's made with a polyurethane faux leather exterior and a microfiber interior for preventing scratches. Its lid has a magnetic closure and can fold over to become a stand for a viewing, gaming, or using the keyboard.

The NVIDIA Shield Tablet cover supports auto sleep and wake, which means that when you close the cover, the tablet's screen turns off, and when you open the cover, it turns on.

Poetic NVIDIA Shield Tablet Case

Poetic NVIDIA Shield tablet case

The Poetic NVIDIA Shield Tablet case is a heavy-duty protective case built to shield your tablet from impacts and dings.

Its body is composed of food grade silicone, which is very easy to keep clean — all you need to do is rinse it off with water and wipe it with a clean cloth. It has rounded edges that make it very comfortable to hold and a raised bezel along the edges of the screen to protect it from scratches.

There's also this other cool thing about the NVIDIA Shield Tablet case — it's got built-in channeling chambers designed to direct sound from the speakers up toward your face so that you can hear it better. Isn't that awesome?

If you're looking for a heavy-duty protective case that's easy to keep clean and that helps to direct the sounds of the speakers toward you, then the Poetic NVIDIA Shield Tablet case is a great option.

Fintie SmartShell case

Fintie SmartShell case

The Fintie SmartShell case is a combination of style and protectiveness. Amazon reviewers love how it feels and looks, and how it protects while remaining lightweight. It also comes in a variety of colors to suit every taste.

Its cover is made of polyurethane synthetic leather, with a soft microfiber interior, and a hard polycarbonate back shell. This keeps its weight down while protecting the device from scratches and dings.

The cover turns into a stand for propping up the tablet to read, watch videos, or play games. It has a magnetic closure and will turn the tablet's screen off when it is closed and turn it back on when it is open.

If you're looking for a case that is colorful, lightweight, and protective, then the Fintie SmartShell case might be the one for you.

ProCase SlimSnug case

ProCase Slimsung case

The ProCase SlimSnug case is slim, form-fitting, and yet protects the NVIDIA Shield tablet quite well. You'll love how its texture makes it easier to hold with one hand and how it protects the corners.

The case itself is composed of a hard polycarbonate shell back, a synthetic leather cover, and the microfiber interior. It comes in many bright colors, and when the cover is closed, it turns the tablet's screen off — when it's open, it turns the tablet's screen on.

If you're looking for a form-fitting case that is light, protective, and comes in bright colors, then the ProCase SlimSnug case is right up your alley.

Best wallet cases for Samsung Galaxy Note 5

What are the best wallet cases for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5?

Whether you need to take every card with you or just some cash and your ID, a wallet case for your Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is a perfect way to merge all of your necessities into one convenient case that's functional and fashionable.

IZENGATE Classic Series wallet case

IZENGATE classic series wallet case

This PU leather wallet case from IZENGATE comes in four colors: black, purple, turquoise, and mint. Just snap your Samsung Galaxy Note 5 into place and load up to four cards, as well as some cash in its own pocket, and head out on the town.

The detachable wristlet lets you use the wallet as a clutch; no worries about dropping it when it's connected to your wrist. The case also folds easily into a kickstand for hands-free viewing or talking. The snap closure isn't magnetic but it holds the wallet securely closed.

Well-reviewed, well-made, good looking; tough to pass up the IZENGATE Classic Series wallet case.

TabPow wallet flip case

TabPow wallet flip case

With room for up to seven cards and a special spot for a few bills, the wallet flip case from TabPow has a unique design. The two-fold system is surprisingly not bulky and it comes in black, white, or brown.

The magnetic closure holds everything in place and TabPow even sends along a screen protector for your Samsung Galaxy Note 5 for a little extra scratch protection. The actual phone case within the wallet is removable for the times when you don't want to use the full wallet.

For a full-sized bill fold and a little extra room, the TabPow wallet flip case is an excellent choice.

iNNEXT wallet case

iNNEXT wallet case

If you have 10 or more cards that you absolutely can't leave the house without and you're the kind who tends to carry pockets full of coins, the wallet case from iNNEXT is exactly what you need. You also get to choose from eight lovely colors to go with your Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

The zippered pouch is perfect for cash and even a house key. The PU leather is manufactured to look like cowhide, and that gives the wallet a nice textured, grippy feel. The interior phone case is held in place with strong magnets and the whole wallet is secured on one side with a magnetic clasp and on the other with a snap closure.

The only issue here is that there's no back cutout for the camera, which means you have to take your phone out in order to snap a photo. Considering how much you get to take along with you and how secure everything is, that's not a bad trade-off at all.

Verus Layered Dandy slim fit wallet

Verus Layered Dandy slim fit wallet

The Verus Layered Dandy slim fit wallet is about as slim as they come if you're looking to avoid any kind of extra size or bulk at all. Your Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will fit nicely inside along with three cards and a little cash.

The faux leather is dyed to look and feel aged, while the PC interior protects your phone against drops and bumps. The precise cutouts on the back allow you to use the camera without removing the case, and the magnetic clasp closure won't fly open on you after you've snapped it shut.

The wallet comes in black, coffee brown, and the wine red that's pictured here.

Handles are pretty handy.

The Neoprene material keeps your ASUS Chromebook Flip safe from incidental spills or the occasional rainy jaunt.

The secure zipper closure and soft, cushioned interior keep your Chromebook protected, even if your day is keeping you on the run. The front pocket is ideal for cords, paperwork, or even your phone; just keep everything all in one place and you won't waste your day searching for odds and ends.

Navitech canvas laptop sleeve

Navitech canvas laptop sleeve with white and blue stripes

Canvas is an excellent choice for laptop sleeve material; it's durable and less flexible than other fabrics, so your ASUS Chromebook Flip will stay safe and sound. It comes in solid red, black, or the nautical blue and white stripe pattern pictured here.

It's slim and lightweight enough to toss into another bag if you're traveling or commuting. The secure snap closure won't fly open and the interior pocket is a perfect storage spot for a cord and a USB. The soft fabric lining keeps the exterior of your Chromebook scratch-free, too.

Durable, simple in its design, and made just for the ASUS Chromebook Flip, the canvas laptop sleeve from Navitech is a solid choice.

If you need your ASUS Chromebook Flip to travel well with other accessories and gear, go for the AmazonBasics laptop and tablet bag. It comes in basic black with a removable long shoulder strap that's awfully convenient for travel.

Best clear cases for Samsung Galaxy Note 5

Best clear cases for Samsung Galaxy Note 5

What are the best clear cases for the Galaxy Note 5?

Sometimes having a unique, flashy or busy-looking case can be a stylish accessory for your phone, but there's nothing better than a minimalist, clear case that shows off the sleek beauty of your Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

While there are dozens of options for you to pick from, here are a few great ones to check out if you're looking for a durable and reliable clear case for your Samsung phone.

Spigen Ultra Hybrid

Spigen Ultra Hybrid

Made from tough polycarbonate and a flexible TPU bumper, the Spigen Ultra Hybrid is a great quality case and a perfect fit for the Galaxy Note 5.

A raised bezel protects your phone's screen, while all buttons and ports are easily accessible, so you don't need to slide it on and off every time you're charging it.

Even though the Ultra Hybrid is a clear case, you can choose to get clear or colored accents for the TPU bumper, like black and mint green.

Ringke Fusion Crystal Clear

Ringke Fusion

If you're looking for a well-made clear case for your Galaxy Note 5, consider taking a peek at the Ringke Fusion Crystal Clear case.

Super thin and snug-fitting (plus it comes in eco-friendly packaging!), the Ringke Fusion is an anti-scratch case with a transparent TPU bumper that wraps around your phone for full protection.

All buttons and ports are easily accessible through dust caps that are there to prevent debris from blocking the ports of your Galaxy Note 5.

Spigen Neo Hybrid Crystal

Spigen Neo Hybrid Crystal

Designed with a bendable, tight-fitting, clear TPU shell and a hard polycarbonate frame that comes in three different colors (silver, gold, and blue), the Spigen Neo Hybrid is a great minimalist case for your Galaxy Note 5.

You get full access to all ports, as well as metal-plated buttons with the Hybrid Crystal, while the TPU material, which is not as slick, smooth, and slippery as polycarbonate, keeps your phone secure in your pockets and firmly in your grasp.

CellularVilla Clear Cushion

CellularVilla Clear Cushion

By far the least expensive option on this list at around $7.99, the Clear Cushion case from CellularVilla is an affordable, great quality case for your Galaxy Note 5.

The Clear Cushion is designed with dual-layer, shock absorbing material, so if you drop your Galaxy Note 5, you won't have to worry much about your phone screen shattering.

Made from an anti-stretch material, the Clear Cushion has cutouts throughout, so you have full access to all buttons and ports. Did we mention that this case adds little to no bulk to your Galaxy Note 5?

Naked Tough case

Naked Tough case

Thin, smooth, and durable, the Naked Tough case from Case-Mate is a tough – yet stylish– option for your Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

This hard-shelled case is designed with a shock-absorbing bumper to protect your Galaxy Note 5, while metal buttons add a bit of style to the case's minimalist overall look.

Designed to be super slim and nearly invisible on your phone, the Naked Tough case is well worth checking out if you're looking for a thin, transparent accessory.

 DWay Armor Design with stand

If you're the kind that's a little hard on your Honor 5X, your case needs to take extra care for you. The DWay Armor Design offers protection in six color varieties.

The dual-layer case will cradle your phone in spite of drops and bumps. The textured back and soft side bumpers give your Honor 5X a more rugged feel and look. If that's not enough, there's a built-in kickstand for hands-free viewing.

For a sturdier look and feel that will keep your Honor 5X extra safe, the DWay Armor Design is a solid choice.

TUDIA Ultra Slim Full-Matte Arch case

TUDIA Ultra Slim Full-Matte Arch case

Not the flashy type? The case for your Honor 5X doesn't have to be an attention grabber. The four subtle colors of the TUDIA Ultra Slim case complement your phone without drawing attention to the device.

The TPU rubberized silicone case is soft, durable, and protective. Raised edges protect the screen from unfortunate encounters with hard surfaces, and the case gives you full access to all the phone's buttons and functions.

Spigen Liquid Crystal Ultra-Thin case

Spigen Liquid Crystal Ultra-Thin case

You're not stuck with only colorful cases to choose from; a clear case will show off the original hardware that makes the Honor 5X look so good. We like the Liquid Crystal case from Spigen.

The clear TPU case won't discolor over time, and you won't have to worry about smudges of fingerprints, either. A raised lip around the screen and camera cutout keep both sensitive areas protected from bumps, and the covered buttons keep their full functionality.

If you want to show off your Honor 5X the way it was intended to be seen, the Spigen Liquid Crystal Ultra-Thin case should be yours, all yours.

Lwang Slim Fit Hybrid case

Lwang Slim Fit Hybrid case

Simple and straightforward, the second Lwang case on our list is the Slim Fit Hybrid, and its three color variations and reasonable price mean you could get one for each mood or outfit. Just sayin'.

The hard PC and flexible TPU combination add a nice grip to the slender Honor 5X, and the textured back surface prevents your phone from slipping off of smooth surfaces. There are precise cutouts for all the ports, buttons, and, of course, the camera lens.

Bonus feature: there are built-in air cushions in all four corners for a little extra drop protection. Sounds like a great deal to us.

LK shock absorption hybrid case

LK shock absorption hybrid case

Let's say you like the look of Otterbox cases and you've been looking for that style to fit your Honor 5X. Look no further; we found a great plastic and silicone combination with the LK shock absorption hybrid case.

The soft bumper and anti-slip finish make it easy to keep a handle on your phone. The case is easy to snap on and off, and it's a snug fit. It's lightweight and gives you access to all the ports and buttons on your Honor 5X.

The six color combinations stand out and make your Honor 5X easy to find, and it's easy to see why the LK shock absorption hybrid case makes our list.
