Refer to above links: I wud like the casing's charging port to be Lightning so that I
could use an adaptor that converts Lightning to a 3.5mm earphone plus lightning
jacks for my iPhone 7.

Does any of the above casings use lightning port on their casings?  They appear
to bundle microUSB cable so I'm inclined to think it's microUSB port on the casing

Not Lightning ports.

Lenmar  "Yes, it's still only microUSB, but I suspect that Apple won't allow anyone to use Lightning or charges a hefty license fee." from the review at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PG8TID6/ref=psdc_3081461011_t1_B00U2QW12W  2nd review down by NoVA Music Lover

Otterbox seems to be similar "Also, the mini USB connector on the side of the case is awkward and cumbersome to say the least." from Rclambert at http://www.otterbox.com/en-us/iphone-6-6s/resurgence-power-case/apl33-iphone-6.html

So I guess I'll upgrade fr iPhone 6 to 6S so that I could charge using the microUSB & 
data sync to laptops/Macbook via the microUSB?

I guess there's no adaptor that could cconvert from microUSB out to Lightning+earphone?

I mean those Otterbox & Lenmar casings with their microUSB ports allow
charging plus data sync?  For sure I wud not want to risk it with iPhone 7

Btw, from the description/reviews, can I safely say Otterbox provides better
protection than Lenmar or even Trianium?

Correction.  The Resurgence does have a Lightning port and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

See http://au.pcmag.com/otterbox-resurgence-power-case-for-iphone-6/28456/review/otterbox-resurgence-power-case-for-iphone-6 and https://www.mobilereviews-eh.ca/otterbox-resurgence-review-iphone-6/ reviews for more information.  The USB connector is for charging the battery pack.  Reviews seem to think it is more of a battery pack rather than case protector but it does provide case protection.

The Lenmar does not have Lightning connector but can sync through the USB cable.  See http://www.lenmar.com/Uploads/File/Manuals/BC6.pdf for more information.
