ThinCharge isn’t a stranger to the pages of Techaeris as we covered their last Indiegogo campaign which did end up fully funded. The last time ThinCharge ran into some issues getting units out to Indiegogo backers due to a contract signed by parent company ChargeTech. To the companies credit, they did apologize to their backers and opened up the channels of communication. Now ChargeTech is back with the ThinCharge for iPhone 7/7 Plus and hopefully, they have all the bugs ironed out this time around.
Now that all of that is out of the way. The ThinCharge does look like a great product with a 3,600mAh battery in the 7 Plus version and 2,900mAh battery in the 7 which should be good for double battery life. The design is once again, super-thin and looks like it adds very little bulk to the phone, it’s most certainly a huge improvement over Apple’s Quasimodo design.
In their last campaign, ChargeTech only made the ThinCharge for the iPhone 6/6s and failed to see the popularity of the Plus model, this time Plus users can get one for their device too. The specs for both cases are as follows so you’ll have an idea of just how much girth and weight it will add to your iPhone.

We have yet to review and test a ThinCharge device but based on its specs and design, this seems like a great slim battery case that could prove very useful.
