You don't buy a Maserati if you don't intend to do a little speeding, and you didn't buy that LG G3 with a removable battery just to stare at its faux metal cover. For the road warrior and the uptime enthusiast, it's all about expanded power capacity, and ZeroLemon never misses the opportunity to display some massive excess in that category. Their latest masterpiece is for the LG G3, with a 9,000mAh expanded battery that should roughly triple the phone's runtime.
Regular Android Police readers know we're big fans of ZeroLemon's even bigger batteries for most flagship phones that can support them. If you've got an LG G Pro 2 (and preferably some oversized pockets as well), you can extend your untethered time by a considerable amount with the 9500mAh extended battery. The battery and its body-wrapping case are now on sale at Amazon for $49.99.
The G Pro 2's battery is already among the largest standard phone batteries available at 3200mAh, so the ZeroLemon package should give you roughly triple the battery life on one charge.
The Galaxy S5 already has pretty decent battery life, but ZeroLemon wants it to last quite a bit longer. The phone comes with 2800mAh of juice out of the box, but ZeroLemon has an extended battery, case included, that will bump that up to 7500mAh. That's over twice the battery life, and you can now get your hands on it through Amazon for $49.99.
This case will offer your phone some extra protection, but it does have a few drawbacks.
The trend towards integrated, non-removable batteries has caused much weeping and gnashing of teeth among the Android faithful, and nowhere is it more passionate than from the Nexus crowd. If you've been lamenting the Nexus 4's lack of a removable battery, ZeroLemon (purveyors of ridiculously huge extended batteries for major phones) has something they'd like you to see.
That's an external battery case, a form factor famous for turning svelte, short-lived iPhones into hulking bricks of longevity.
Just last week we featured the battery-cover-busting ZeroLemon 7000mAh extended battery for the Galaxy S III. If that's not enough for you and your globe trotting, electricity eschewing lifestyle, the company also offers an even more expansive 9300mAh battery for the Samsung Galaxy Note II. In case you're wondering, yes, it's perfectly normal to imagine Also Sprach Zarathustra playing in the background right now. Amazon's got the battery for a mere $39.99 (US price) at the moment.
The Galaxy S III has a capacity of 2100 milliamp hours. As far as battery life goes, it's alright, when compared to other flagship phones from last year. But if you want the absolute best longevity out there, not to mention the best bang for your battery buck, you've got to check out the off-brand expanded model that Reddit found while trawling the depths of Amazon.
It's got a capacity of 7000mAh.
Smartphones are the new portable gaming systems. And MP3 players, point & shoot cameras, calendars, on-the-go email machines, and social networking devices. Simply put, smartphones work hard for us. As a result, the battery drains quickly. Oftentimes too quickly.
That's why Seidio is offering up three 3,500mAh extended batteries and three desktop charging cradles for the Galaxy S III to three lucky readers.
As stated above, we have some battery/charging cradle combos to give away.
Mugen, I think I speak for everyone when I say "please stop." I mean, really? Look at their latest creation, a 5400mAh extended battery for the already gargantuan Galaxy Note:
If you own a Galaxy Note and have grown tired of carrying around a small diesel generator, though, this may be the solution to all of your problems. Of course, no one said this solution didn't come with problems of its own.
While some manufacturers are doing whatever they can to increase battery life in power-hungry smartphones, most of us still have to find a way to make sure our gear stays charged on-the-go. Sure, extended batteries get the job done, but they add extra bulk to your device, and they don't help a bit if you have multiple devices to keep juiced. So, what's the most practical solution?
A portable charger.
