You’ll notice a small metal strip that connects the case to the iPhone.
Put the iPhone back in and let it drain on its own.
This will allow you to get your iPhone to charge without having to go through the hassle of taking it out of its case.

That’s a portable computer that you can put in your pocket or purse and run through the power indicator on the back of the phone to test the battery.
If you have a charger, it’s easiest to use the charger in your laptop or tablet.
If your phone doesn’t have a power indicator, you can always turn the phone off and see if the battery is dead.
