The LAB.C 109 Cable And Ultra Protection Case Review
When it comes down to buying a case, there are hundreds of different options to choose from. The LAB.C 109 Cable And Ultra Protection Case provides something different than what we mostly use. When LAB.C reached out to me on doing this review I was a little skeptical. Here is why.
The LAB.C 109 case comes with a case, screen protector, and a lightning cable to charge your iPhone 6 attached to the back. The case is solid and has a TPU material which absorbs shock and is more protective from scratches than regular silicon cases. At a fraction of the the cost, the case provides a premium feel. However the case being premium and feeling nice was not why I was skeptical. I was skeptical because the case comes attached with the lightning cable to charge your iPhone that fits securely in the back.
Apple is known for not playing nice with aftermarket chargers. As a computer tech at a phone repair shop I see several chargers that do not charge the iPhone 6 (or 5, 5S, or 5C in that matter). When attempting to charge an iPhone 6 with an aftermarket charger there is a large risk in seeing the "This cable or accessory is not certified and may not work reliably with this iPhone" or "This accessory is not supported by this device". This was not an issue with the lightning cable included in this case. I plugged it in to several different iPhones through out the last several days and have not had one issue with connection. I was honestly surprised. Here is the cable in action on my Macbook Pro.
As you can see the cable itself is very short. I would not recommend plugging this into your wall and letting your iPhone dangle from a wall socket. When it comes down to uses for this case, it is quite clear that this case is not to be used at all times to charge your iPhone. Some may ask "well why buy it in the first place?". I see this case coming in handy mainly because we are not known to bring our chargers everywhere we go. There are often times when we are halfway through our day and our phone is already dying. With this case you can find the nearest USB port and charge your phone. In today's world there are USB ports everywhere. You could be at work and not have a charger but have the ability to plug your phone in to the nearest computer. Airports are also now including USB ports where the power outlets used to be.
In conclusion I have seen and have had many cases and I have to say that this case is one of the better ones that I have used especially considering the price tag. If you are purchasing the case on Amazon you are only looking at a price tag of $24.99 which is a bargain considering what this case is bringing to the table. LAB.C also has the same case for the iPhone 6+. If you do not own an iPhone, LAB.C has many more cases for Android phones as well.
