Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro Smart Battery Case at $91

Amazon offers Apple’s official iPhone 11 Pro Smart Battery Case in various colors for $91. Regularly $129, today’s deal is the best price we’ve seen at Amazon in any color and the lowest in months at other retailers. Apple’s official Smart Battery Case for iPhone 11 Pro delivers “up to 50% longer” usage, which is great if you’re someone that frequently is out of juice at the end of the day. Another notable feature here is the ability to leverage Qi chargers for wireless powerups, taking the guesswork out of plugging in your phone each night. Of course, connectivity via Lightning cable is still an option, as well. Integrated battery life within Notification Center makes it easy to track how much juice you have left throughout the day.
