You only have several hundred to choose from. Google it, or use Apple News with the search term iPhone battery case" or a variant. You could also specify the form factor, thin, protective, stylish, wireless or plug in, whether you can listen to music or otherwise use the phone the same time you're charging it, etc. How much power is another variant -- the range I've seen is between 2,800ma and 6,000ma. Last, there are industry article reviewing your choices, e.g., on Mac World, Wireless, VGR, etc.
Good luck!

Yes, You are correct. This is why asking for support from someone who also uses iPhone xx and has a smart case.

The problem is probably that you are searching for accessories for an iPhone model that doesn't exist. At least I have never heard of an iPhone Xx before. Perhaps you mean an iPhone XS? Try searching for that instead and see if you have any more luck finding cases for it ;)

Yes. I know what iPhone I have and I did use iPhone Xx search and iPhone XX. Any other comment? Like I stated I need help from those who have one and may have a smart case.

Okay, you mean either the iPhone X or the iPhone XS, not the iPhone XX. The iPhone XX does not exist. Please make sure you're typing either iPhone X or XS in your search. just clarifying your comment

Yes, I know what I am looking but amazon does not have them They have for the iPhone X or iPhone XX Max. The other issue is apple certify. Most cases are not and will not work. This is why again I am hoping that a nice person who also have iPhone XX also have a smart case.

When you say smart case, do you mean for it to have the magnetic cover that sleeps the iPhone when you close it? As far as I am aware, there aren't any cases that include both a battery and the sleep wake functionality I'm afraid. I hear Spec do some good cases with the sleep wake function though as well as Apple's own offerings, obviously.

I have 3 iPhone XS battery cases in the 4,000 to 5,200ma range, which I bought from Amazon for a total of approximately $80 for all 3. You can get single cases from a company called Plus Cases (but I'm not sure that's the correct name) for $89 or more per case. I expect they're fine cases.

I did buy a 6,000ma case from someone else, but it didn't work, and I didn't like it anyway because it had a large bulge for the battery in part of the back of the case.

Unfortunately, I don't remember the brand name of my 3 cases, but I'm sure that if you call Amazon customer service, they'll be happy to assist you. Best Buy also has a large selection of battery cases, and there are many other retailers who sell them on line.

Really, the problem I'm having in responding to your post is that what you want to get is a matter of your own personal taste. More, the problem buying on line is that you don't know how easy or difficult it will be to put the phone into the case or to remove it from the case, which can be important. 2 of my 3 cases are very easy; the third is difficult. I did not know this until after they came in the mail.

Last, if you can, go to an Apple Store or to your phone provider store to see what battery cases they have in stock so you can get your hands on them. If you find one you like, buy it from the store, or if you want to save a little money, write down the model and brand name of the case you like, and later google it to buy it on line.

Hope this helps.
