It’s been a while since we have heard about 3rd party battery replacements for mobile phones since battery life has gotten a lot more bearable since back then, it has also become a key point when it comes to the latest technology. The Samsung Galaxy S5 already has a pretty decent 2,800mAh battery and useful power saving modes but with this Mugen 3rd party battery clocking in at 5,900mAh you may not need to charge your phone daily anymore.
Since the S5 is already rated for about 72hrs in the GSM Arena endurance test, by inference this battery will give you double that. The downside to a battery this large is of course the size consideration. The reason we don’t already have these monolith batteries in our devices at the moment is that sticking to design aesthetics, thin is beautiful. The Mugen battery will require you to replace the rear with a larger replacement cover, adding bulk and heft to the device. The good thing however is that it will come with QI wireless charging and NFC built in.
The Mugen battery costs US$89.50 and has free world wide shipping.
