Middling or average battery life has been a complaint of Moto X owners since the device’s release. Despite hardware that doesn’t draw nearly the power of higher-end devices, the 2200mAh battery capacity often isn’t enough to get through a full day without charging.
The folks at Mugen Power recognize this; yesterday, the company revealed a 2800mAh battery case designed specifically for the Moto X. For $89.50, it’ll bump the combined capacity to 5000mAh (2800mAh case + 2200mAh internal phone battery), which should translate to 20+ hours of usage before needing a charge. Of course, the extended battery life also translates to added bulk through the case.
The case is $89.50, and is now available for pre-order. It’ll ship on March 14.
Any takers? (more…)
Sometimes you just got to have long battery life on your device, no matter what the cost. For uber power users of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Mugen has a battery that will keep you going for days on end. Their new battery clocks in at 6,400mAh, which is almost double the RAZR MAXX’s 3,300mAh battery.
It may look ridiculous, but Mugen is promising double the battery life of the stock battery and even that is probably a conservative projection. All this juice doesn’t come cheap though, the regular price of this monster is $105, but is on a deal of sorts for early adopters.

Update: Reader Steve sent over a link to a Hyperion 6200mAh extended battery for the Note 2 that runs only $14.99 or $19.99 through Amazon. It sort of seems too good to be true to me, but others have had great luck with Hyperion batteries for other devices. There are versions that come with either a grey or white back, so you can match the color of your device. It doesn’t necessarily say that it is NFC-ready, but other batteries of theirs are. At that price, why not give it a shot?

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.
