Android's flagship smartphones tend to have a battery life problem. The standard often isn't how many days they can last, but whether they can make it through a single one. Budget smartphones, with their weaker processors and lower screen resolutions, often last longer—but not everyone is willing to sacrifice performance and picture quality for battery. Those people can instead slap an external charger to the back of their phones and wrap it up with plastic. We call this approach buying a ZeroLemon case. Read More
Hey, you! Did you know there's a gigantic ball of burning plasma in the sky that's literally giving away free energy right this second? It's true, there is! Unless it's night time where you live. Then you have to wait for free energy. Unless you have the foresight to store it away during the day with, say, a big honkin' battery. A battery not unlike these huge portable ones from ZeroLemon, those folks who make improbably huge battery replacements for every Samsung and LG phone. They're on sale today over at Newegg.
So the basic gist of these batteries is that you leave them out in the sun to charge up, then charge your phone/tablet/portable can opener with the free power. Read More
ZeroLemon makes these pretty nifty portable battery packs that you can recharge (albeit very slowly) using the large solar panel on top. The company also produces some rather ridiculous-looking extended battery cases that, in addition to providing your device with a metric ton of power, turns it into a plastic brick. No, they don't make the thing stop working—they make your phone the size of a brick.
ZeroLemon's new Galaxy S6 case is still pretty thick, large, and throbbing with juice. Read More
There's a deal over at StackSocial you might want to take advantage of, but you'll have to hurry. The ZeroLemon SolarJuice 10000mAh Battery is on sale for $26, down from a regular price of $50. The deal on this solar-powered battery is only good for the rest of the day, though.
ZeroLemon loves to strap enormous batteries onto every phone that they can, and since they keep doing it for basically every new Samsung and LG high-end model, someone must be buying them. The latest phone to receive the company's blessings of longevity is the Galaxy Note 4, itself already one of the biggest phones around. A 10,000mAh battery and a replacement rear cover (which is really more like a case) can be yours for $59.99 on Amazon.
The Galaxy Note 4's default removable battery is a generous 3220mAh, so the 10,000mAh replacement should last roughly three times as long as the phone alone (and it's already pretty good in that regard). Read More
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.
Since the new battery is much bigger than the 3000mAh pack included with the G3, it's sold with a replacement rear cover that turns out to be something like an Otterbox case. Read More
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. (Your results may vary of course - it's not unusual for extended batteries like this to get 5-15% less time than they "should.") However, the unique design on the replacement battery cover makes the G Pro wider, taller, deeper, and of course heavier than a regular model, and the 5.9" screen on the phone meant it was already pretty large to begin with.

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. Primarily, the phone will no longer be water resistant. The ZeroLemon branding is also a bit over the top, but I'm well aware that this isn't a deal breaker for tons of people. Read More
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is already a great big phone, but the ZeroLemon battery case for the Note 3 is finally here to make it even bigger. This rugged case packs a humungous 10,000mAh battery with NFC support. It also makes the phone into kind of a hideous brick, but that's the price you pay for insane battery life.
The case should be compatible with all versions of the Note 3 with standard or extended batteries already installed. The case is thick, which blocks the NFC in the regular battery from working. However, this case has its own NFC chip to restore that functionality. Read More
