Apple’s own battery case, cleverly titled the Smart Battery Case, has been on the market for over two years now. I had never really taken an interest in it;  it was just another battery case, only this one looked like it was pregnant with an iPod.

Check out the video below to find out why it’s earned a place in my heart — and is now my favorite iPhone case.
