Tens or even hundreds of thousands of people woke up this morning to find that Santa had brought them a brand new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus for Christmas. Either phone makes an amazing gift, of course, and people will spend hours today ignoring family members and instead getting to know their shiny new iPhones.

There is undoubtedly plenty to love about your new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, and you’ll discover tons of great stuff in the coming days, weeks and months. Of course, there is also one area where you’ll wish your new iPhone performed better: Battery life.

DON’T MISS: 10 cases that will protect your iPhone 6 without ruining Apple’s gorgeous design

Relatively poor battery performance obviously isn’t an issue that only impacts iPhones. The simple fact of the matter is that battery technology progresses at a painfully slow pace compared to other tech, and the beautiful high-resolution displays and other power-hungry parts in modern smartphones are too much for batteries to handle.

We regularly share tips and tricks that might help you squeeze more juice out of your iPhone battery, but there’s another option you might want to consider as well.

Forbes recently published a good roundup of five iPhone battery cases that will double — or in some cases, more than double — your iPhone’s battery life. Battery cases aren’t optimal since they add a lot of bulk to your phone, which Apple painstakingly designed to be as thin as possible, but for many people, battery life is more important than thinness.

Each of the cases Forbes suggests is a solid choice and one in particular, the PowerSkin Pop’n 2, comes highly recommended by BGR as well. For the full list and additional details, follow the link below in our source section.
