Here is Mugen’s 4000mAh Galaxy Nexus Battery, Guaranteed to Ruin Your Sex Life

YouTube Preview Image

We like to poke fun at devices that reach “Tank Status,” which means that thanks to massive extended batteries with oddly shaped battery doors that sometimes double the standard weight of the device, they actually resemble a tank in both looks and heft. Mugen’s new 4000mAh beast for the Galaxy Nexus on the other hand, has forced us to create a new category call “Abstinence Status.” And that’s because you could not make it any clearer that you no longer wish to partake in sexual activities with another person should you put this battery and battery cover on your phone. It’s that horrendous to look at. And no, you cannot use its kickstand as either a sexual innuendo or pickup line.

From what I can tell, this battery is not yet available to be purchased, but should be in the next few days.

Cheers Anthony!

  • There’s really no other way to last through the day without some sort of extended battery. I lose 25% Life every hour.  I continuously shake my head everyday at this phone…. This is a must have for me…

    Whats the point of the kickstand when it should be able to stand up on its side just from the thickness??

  • QtDL

    Thanks for the demo Kellen. I didn’t know you knew Spanish!

  • Kingaremu

    i want one right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  • iNfAMOUS70702

    It looks like its a phone inside a phone O.o ….and why is the kickstand on top??

  • Why don’t they make it like the mophie juice pack?  Funny shaped battery is in the normal shaped case and its an additional battery too!  And its not heavy or bulky either.  No I don’t have an iphone but three in my family do and they love it.

    It looks like a tumor. Cue Schwarzenegger “IT’S NOT A TUMOR!” comments.

  • I uh…. I rather like it…
    AND am sexually active 😀
    Just don’t tell my parents.

  • Irrational Man

    Back in my day we had the 
    3500 Seidio battery for the DInc which TRIPLED the size of the phone. 
    You kids don’t know how good you’ve got it when your battery only doubles the size of your phone! Now get off my lawn with your giant phones!

    Great.  Demonstrated by a guy that can’t even install it correctly and snap the cover on.

  • David Elisha

    Still thinner than my TBOLT….

  • C-Law

    too bad the dude destroyed his brand new battery cover. He just smashed the bottom down instead of sliding the bottom tabs in. It even looks like at the end you can see its still not in in the bottom corner.

  • Rfslsf

    Wish Mophie made a juicepack case for GNex. Can’t let iSheep have all the fun!

  • Destroythanet

    I’ll take a Samsung extended battery + standard battery in my wallet any day over the Mugen or Seidio tanks.

    How does a battery that doesn’t look bad at all affect sex life? I don’t and I promise you women don’t say “he has a slim phone, he would be great in bed” or “he has a big phone, he’s unattractive because of it”. If anything wouldn’t women/men love it more if your phone has more power so they can keep in touch with you? And this one isn’t just a battery, it adds a kick stand and that’s something I really missed for my thunderbolt! If I had a Gnex this would honestly be the top of my purchase list.

      Let me school you in the ways of the world.
      1. “He has a big phone, he’s unattractive because of it.” As silly as it sounds, that is essentially what women will think. Women want to be the focus of your attention. If they see you with a phone that needs this much battery, they will immediately realize what you’ll be doing instead of talking to them in the car or while on a date.
      2. “If anything wouldn’t women/men love it more if your phone has more power so they can keep in touch with you?” No, that would be an argument for your mom, since you never call her.
      3. “And this one isn’t just a battery, it adds a kick stand and that’s something I really missed [from] my thunderbolt!” Really? You must be a sucker for late night infomercials…buy one now and we’ll throw in a useless kickstand for free!
      4. “If I had a Gnex this would honestly be [at] the top of my purchase list”. Spend your money however you want, but a battery this big & obnoxious will label you as someone that loves playing with their phone more than interacting with others face-to-face.

      Just sayin’…

  • 08/15/2013, the day I can get out from under this crappy nexus and get a real phone, if the iphone5 or may iphone 6 by then is 4g….I’m gone, I need a phone that works right out of the box

    This thing is like gluing another Galaxy Nexus to the back of your Galaxy Nexus.

  • Speio

    I’m disheartened that some consumers must resort to something this revolting. I would like to file a mak-a-wish proposal for better battery life: stop the 4g suffering. 

  • Bunie

    I want a battery! Those things are crazy expensive

  • Eazy

    if your game depends on a cell phone, then my friend you might as well either become a eunuch or kill yourself … just sayin

  • nothin like havin a massive battery for a phone that doesnt work half the time

  • Dliuzzo110

    Wouldnt this make it so you could have sex for even longer?? Ohhhh you meant sex with other people

  • N8shon

    All that laughable size and weight, and yet my Razr Maxx is humming along with a 3300 mAh battery at 8.99 mm thick–oh I almost forgot, that’s thinner than the Nexus with the standard battery! Hahaha I kid. I actually like the Nexus, it’s just hilarious to see something this gargantuan. That said, it does actually make sense for someone like a business traveler that needs to have the phone on and ready throughout long flights and other excursions that involve not being near a charger. Personally, if I had a Nexus, I think I would just carry an extra Samsung branded battery or two with me, rather than going for this Mugen monster with questionable credibility. That is, unless of course, you want JDM style!!!!!! LOLOLOL

      The RAZR design is exceptionally well suited for a large scale battery because of the design of the system board. Rather than making one or two boards to fit around a battery they simply made the whole thing one double sided board that was exceptionally thin. Just look at the heatsinks to see how incredibly precise each chip placement is to get it to fit. Thus, with their design they can then make a huge, thin battery to cover almost the entirety of the phone’s surface area. Samsung on the other hand has two thicker boards and one small area fat battery that only increases in depth as it increases in size. So to get a 3300-4000 mAh battery you have to make it ridiculously fat. The RAZR can fit a very large battery into a minimally thick design just because the whole thing can be a battery.

    Ahahahahahahahaha. Mugen, eh? I haven’t heard that brand name since the import boom of the early 90’s when my friends were importing JDM Mugen Honda parts. 

  • Prickee

    I dunno. Would be a nice backup for those times when no charger is near and I’m ready to check out Netflix or watch a movie. Hmmm I wonder how much?
