ZeroLemon Releases 8500mAh External Battery Cases For The Galaxy Note 5 And Galaxy S6 Edge Plus For $60

With gigantic screens and the extra internal space that goes along with them, Samsung's plus-sized flagship phones already offer large batteries: 3000mAh for both the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. But for some that just isn't enough, and that's where third-party battery supplier ZeroLemon shines. Both phones have sealed battery compartments, but the usual work-around is to build a giant battery into an even more giant phone case. So it is with ZeroLemon's latest offerings: enormous 8500mAh battery-cases for both devices.

The math works out to almost 3X battery life on a fully-charged case, plus the runtime of the phone's internal battery, though the electrical inefficiency of the external battery system probably means it won't last quite that long.

LG Starts Shipping Tiny Hexagonal Batteries That Offer 25% More Storage Capacity In Round Smart Watches

Square batteries are fine for square things, but the latest craze is round watches, which means lots of wasted space on the inside. That's a bummer when we're already struggling to keep watches running for more than a day.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Gold Box Has An Anker 10000mAh External Battery With Dual USB, Flashlight, And Car Starter (Yes, Really) For $59.99

An external USB-powered battery is not a complex piece of electronics. Generally it has energy input, energy output via a couple of standard USB ports, maybe a few LED lights for measuring the charge, and perhaps a flashlight if the manufacturer is feeling creative. But today's Amazon Gold Box deal includes a battery that can actually start your car. How's that for flexibility? The Anker gadget (an economical brand name we've come to trust) is going for $59.99, $100 off the retail price.
