Just a month ago, Anker announced its new iPhone 7 battery case with a unique design that includes Lightning port access. Today, it’s offering 9to5Toys readers an exclusive discount. The PowerCore 2200mAh Case for iPhone 7/6/s goes to $41.59 shipped when promo code PWCS9TO5 is applied during checkout at Amazon. That’s a $10+ savings off the regular going rate and the lowest price that we’ve tracked.
Anker’s PowerCore Case differs from many similar options on the market today in that it offers access to your Lightning port at all times. Best of all, it’s over 50% less than Apple’s official option. The PowerCore Case offers 2200mAh of extra power, which delivers up to 11 hours of extra use. Rated 4.6/5 stars.

The case has a capacity of 2200mAh, providing approximately a 0-80% full charge for the iPhone 7. This roughly translates to 10+ hours of video, 10+ hours of voice call, or 32+ hours of audio. Despite this increase in battery life, the actual battery case only adds 0.23 inches to the phone. Charging the case battery is simple with the micro USB cable included with every purchase. The lightning cable attached to the battery is also MFI certified, meaning that the case will work safely with iPhones. Additionally, while the cable is not in use, the cable can be tucked away so it does not impede access to the iPhone lightning port. This is a feature that sets it apart from most smart phone protective cases in the market.
