Three new Smart Battery Case smart battery packs have a capacity of 1369mAh, which supports USB-PD fast charging (input) and Qi wireless charging standard (reception) compared with previous versions. "You can charge both the iPhone and the battery case," Apple said.

The three smart battery shells in Hong Kong are all priced at HK$999. Charging head network orders for the first time, for you to bring detailed evaluation and disassembly. Today's issue will bring you an open-box demolition of Smart Battery Case smart battery case for the XR version of the iPhone.

I. Opening of smart battery case (A2121) for the iPhone XR Smart Battery Case

The product is packaged in white background, with the same proportion of the size of the product appearance map printed on it, as in the past Apple design style.

Product specifications are printed on the back.

Product Name: iPhone XR Smart Battery Case; Color Version: Black; Model: A2121.

The price tag on the bottom is HK$999.

Packaging is pull-out design. The product body can be seen by pulling out the inner box from the top.

The whole weight of the packaged product is 215.1g.

The weight of smart battery protection case is 105.2g.

Packaging: Smart Battery Case Intelligent Battery Shell, Product Instructions.

Smart Battery Case's inner microfiber lining helps protect your iPhone fuselage. The outer layer is made of silica gel, which has soft and smooth touch and brings comfortable hand feeling. Soft and flexible frame design allows you to easily take or remove the protective shell.

Detailed specifications of the product are printed on the surface of the inner fiber. Input: 5V, 5.2V, 9V, 14.5V, 15V-3A max; Output: 8.7V-0.7A; Capacity 1369mAh (10.1Wh); Through a variety of certifications: CE certification, WEEE certification, Japanese VCCI certification, Japanese PSE certification, Australian RCM certification.

There is an LED status indicator at the bottom. Different colors correspond to different working conditions.

It can be charged by wired or wireless charging. When charging, the indicator is red.

When the power is full, the indicator is green.

2. Dismantling of the smart battery case (A2121) of the iPhone XR Smart Battery Case

The new product's silica gel shell is damaged. Through the crack, it can be seen that the silica gel shell is strengthened with thin steel plates, which makes the shell very hard. Only in the upper part of the shell, there is no steel plate, but there is a layer of plastic substrate, which can be bent to facilitate the loading of mobile phones.

Remove the lint layer and expose a layer of fiberglass board.

3. Summary of Dismantling Charging Head Network

The smart battery case of the iPhone XR Smart Battery Case uses two new popular USB PDs fast charging and Qi wireless charging technologies. Its internal structure is more complex than previous versions, and its workmanship remains at Apple's consistent manufacturing level.

Apple installed a wireless charging coil inside the protective jacket, so that the protective jacket has the same wireless charging and receiving function as the mobile phone. Ultra-thin coils with multiple windings, nanocrystalline soft magnetic materials and thermal conductive materials are used to improve the charging efficiency and heat dissipation in the process of wireless charging. The internal use of secondary lithium batteries can achieve higher charging and discharging efficiency and reduce heating.
