Need More Battery Power on your Galaxy S4? Mugen has your Back with a 5500mAh Extended Battery

July 4, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

One of the main reasons why people love removable batteries is the ability to have a few batteries and have an extended one. Lately, Zero Lemon has been putting together some amazing extended batteries. In fact they have a 9300mAh one for the Galaxy Note 2. Today, Mugen announced their 5500mAh battery for the Galaxy S4. That’s a pretty large battery for a 5-inch device. In theory it should last a few days. But we all know how that lasts.

Mugen Power has been creating extended batteries and extra batteries for a long time now. I remember getting a Mugen extended battery for my HTC EVO 4G back in the day. The stock battery for the Galaxy S4 will last about 4 hours of video streaming. But with this extended battery, it’ll go to about 8 hours and 17 hours of talk time. Who still talks on the phone though? What we really care about is real-world use, right?

Right now, the Mugen extended battery for the Galaxy S4 is priced at about $89.50. They’ll begin shipping on July 22nd. The backplate for the Galaxy S4 does come in both white and black and does have NFC support. It looks like if you’re picking up one of the new colors for the Galaxy S4, which Samsung announced last week. You won’t have a matching backplate. But if you’re battery lasts for days thanks to Mugen, does that really matter?

It’s always great to see more extended batteries available. Right now Samsung has their own “extended” battery, which isn’t that much bigger. Zero Lemon also has one coming soon, if its not out already. I believe that one is supposed to be around 7500mAh. If you can spare $90 for an extended battery, then you’ll definitely want to give this one a try.
