To help users who spend a lot of time away from power outlets, some companies bet on charging cases. The accessory has a built-in battery on the back that provides additional battery for the cell phone. In addition, the cover also protects the smartphone and offers practicality, since it does not need to be plugged into the power to work.
Currently, there are several brands of capinhas on the market with values between R $ 190 and R $ 1,199, according to the characteristics of each one. The differences range from the charging capacity and the volume of the accessory to the number of entries, which allows you to charge the cell phone and the case at the same time. Check out the following tips for choosing covers and prices for the main brands.
How to choose a cell phone charger case
Before choosing a case, it is necessary to take into account some aspects of the accessory. Because they are the exact format of the cell phone, they are practical to carry and can be connected to the smartphone all day, preventing the user from having to transport additional items. Like protective cases, each phone has specific cover models.
The disadvantage is that the greater the carrying capacity of the case, the greater its weight. In general, thinner covers provide less energy for the phone, as well as being more expensive. It is important to take into account the relationship between the volume and the amount of charge provided when choosing the accessory.
The battery’s storage capacity is measured in milliampere / hour (mAh). The higher this value, the longer the cover charge will last. If the smartphone consumes approximately 1,800 mAh in seven hours, for example, this means that a 1,800 mAh charging case could double the device’s operating time to 14 hours. Comparing the storage capacity of the cell phone and the case can help you buy an accessory that suits your needs.
Another factor to be considered is the form of loading. Some models do not allow charging the cell phone and the case at the same time, making it necessary to separate the smartphone from the accessory. Other covers have two ports, which allows you to plug in the phone at the same time. Apple already offers some models of cases with a door. Just connect a single cable to charge the entire set.
The covers also differ in the way they show the remaining battery. Some models have buttons illuminated with LEDs that show when the load is low. Other models also use indicator bars. Already the cover of Apple, exclusive for cell phones of the brand, indicates the time remaining in the lock screen of the device.
