Moment Launches MFi-Approved Battery Photo Case for iPhone X and iPhone XS

Smartphone lens maker Moment has begun shipping the first MFi-approved Battery Photo Case compatible with iPhone X and the new iPhone XS.

The battery case first drew interest earlier this year as a Kickstarter campaign highlighting several notable features, some of which are clearly aimed at photographers.


The case has a 3,100mAh built-in battery for charging your iPhone on the go, and it's wireless-charging compatible, so it can be placed on any Qi-compatible charging pad.

The case also features an integrated Lightning port to charge an iPhone X/XS, rather than the typical micro-USB found on charging accessories, while a wrist/neck strap can be easily attached for safety.


In addition, there's a two-stage shutter button on the case for taking pictures, so pressing the button halfway focuses the lens and a full press takes the picture.

The Battery Case is compatible with the Moment lens lineup, which includes telephoto, wide, super fish, macro, and a soon-to-be-released Anamorphic lens.

The case costs $99 and can be ordered today on the Moment website, which will offer upgraded versions for iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR come November.

It's not. I'm selling my RX100 and moving to this setup.

There is no way an iPhone can match up with the RX100(V in my case).


I'm actually selling my RX100V and upgrading to the X. For my purposes the X is enough. I can totally see the purpose of the RX100 but I just wasnt using it enough.




I’ve wanted this... waited about a year since getting my iPhone X. But it bugs me that it won’t work with wired (lightning port) headphones. It would be way cooler if the case charged the iPhone via QI instead of lightning.


I really wish apple would make a smart battery case for the iphone X. Third party ones just don't cut it. I had the smart battery case every generation since it launched and it works so well. Most people don't realize the smart battery case isnt treated by the phone as being "plugged into the wall". This means it will still follow the same rules set for things like "only back up on wifi and plugged in". Plus you see the battery level in the OS and you don't have to manage turning it on and off all the time.

Happy to see it is sensibly priced. Expected to see something more like "starting at $199!" and move on. But at $99, with the option to add lenses, sounds decent.
