Battery Case for new iPhone Xs

I sure like the looks of this option. Just need to make sure all cases for the X will fit the Xs:

I'm actually rethinking this whole battery case thing over. My iPhone 6 battery didn't seem to do too well over the several years. I kept it in the battery case all the time. I think I'll get a battery case only for traveling when I know I'll need it. So, with that, any suggestions for a regular case for the iPhone X/XS?

Update: I ended up ordering one of these. Should do till something better comes a long. I never like the real thin stuff which which would cause me concern about bending.

Also just ordered one of these battery cases to have on hand. Not a bad price.

They sure should as each model, X and Xs has the same dimensions:
Dimensions: 5.65 x 2.79 x 0.30*
Details: In inches - height by width by depth (143.6 x 70.9 x 7.7 mm).

I used to use the Mophie battery cases on previous iPhones but stopped when I got the 6 Plus. I opted for a small battery to carry around that I could plug anything into, iPad, iPhone, whatever, it charged it. Found this preferred when travelling as it gave me more options and was smaller then a deck of cards. Plus the added bulk to the phone really took away from the feel. They are definitely slimmer now then older Mophie battery cases but still nothing as slim as a leather Apple case.

This is not the one I have but the first one that came up on Amazon and looks pretty good

says it will charge an iPhone 8 plus 6.6 times. Not sure any battery case will top that.

Just as a heads up. Hope the ones I ordered fit okay.

When zooming in on my battery case coming (amazon even lists it for the X/XS), it looks like thereís a bit of wiggle room. Might not be with my Supcase.

According to Supcase themselves, itís a fit. How can they be sure until they have an XS in hand?

Believe it or not, Apple does work with a lot of companies prior to any public launch regarding their models.

I wouldn't be surprised if they even go some "dummy" physical products and were sworn to secrecy or any disclosure.

Break that promise or disclosure and they're dead as far as Apple is concerned. And probably all their Apple related business as well.

It's how the business world works and maybe add some money into the deals as well.

Got my Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro in the mail today. First thing I notice, it's labelled for the iPhone X. Second, the openings on the bottom are symmetrical for the iPhone X. I suppose that means a bit of the mic and/or speaker grill on my iPhone XS will be covered. I would also imagine that it will take some force to get the camera lens to fit into the opening. I suppose the same will be said for my battery case. Taking a trip late October and really wanted a case and battery case to take with.
