So the Apple battery case has has been out for a little while now and I have had the chance to be one of the first to own one. Having already debunked the "hump-gate" issue in a previous article (which honestly is not a issue at all), I have decided to come back and tell you a small issue I am experiencing with the case. Over the past couple months with my battery case, I have come to the conclusion that the battery case isn't a camel hump, but instead, a vacuum...(insert suspenseful music here)
Living out in the sticks, I almost daily get my phone near some dust or dirt, which wouldn't usually big a big deal. However, with Apple's new battery case, it takes a little more than brushing it off with a clean towel to keep this case clean.
Lets start with the basic components you will need for your case cleaning.
1. Apple Battery Case (presumably dirty)
2. Access to water
3. Q-Tip (the little white thing, not the rapper)
4. Napkin or Equivalent
First take the napkin, lightly wet it down, and clean the exterior. Simple enough. Second, take another lightly wet napkin and scrub hard against the interior, especially focusing on the edges, where dirt likes to clump. Once you have deeply scrubbed the interior to your satisfaction, take the q-tip and dip it in water. Once damp, use the q-tip to clean out the headphone port hole and exterior grills for the speaker and mic as those get super dirty. Taking the other end of the q-tip, focus on the interior ends of the speaker and mic holes. It is a simple process that most of you guys should be familiar with.
Overall, the battery case has been amazing, despite collecting more dirt than my work boots ever could.
