I used to have a Mophie Pack for my iPhone 5. It was a charging case that plugged into Apple's Lightning cables. But I just got an iPhone 7, and it seems that all the charging cases available for it, both by Mophie and by other companies, plug into micro-USB cables, i.e. the kind of cables used to charge Android devices.

So my question is, are there any iPhone 7 charging cases that plug into Lightning cables? That would be much more convenient for me.

  • Is a case that plugs into a lightning cable your only requirement? Any budget, battery capacity preferences?

  • Yes, the lightning port is essentially my only requirement. Budget isn't a consideration. Regarding battery capacity, I suppose the more, the better, but I don't have minimum capacity requirements or anything. Feb 13, 2017 at 0:56

I found This Runsy iPhone 7 case It looks like it uses a lightning passthough, so you won't need to carry a pesky micro usb cable around. The only limitation is that it does not work with headphones with lightning connectors.

Overall, it has a 4 out of 5 star review. Let me know if this fits the bill.

  • Thanks, this is what I was looking for. And reading the reviews of that product, I found out that Apple itself makes a charging case, although it's $99 rather than $25: apple.com/shop/product/MN002LL/A/… Feb 15, 2017 at 1:41
