No, not the Honda tuning company Mugen Power, but the smartphone/tablet PC battery manufacturer. The firm has listened to the problems that many Samsung Galaxy Note owners have about the battery life of their stunning hybrid smartphone-tablet that it runs down too quickly under hard use. Even though the Note comes with a hefty 2,500mAh battery, which is twice what a decent smartphone has, it is so resource-hungry that the power drains quickly.
The ‘fix’ is to buy a Mugen Power battery that claims it can make the Note last more than twice as long. The 5,400mAh battery is the exact same size and measurement as the factory battery and slots right in. The price is around £60 for the battery and it comes with a new battery door as well as worldwide shipping. This gives a whopping return for your cash and it’s a great way to make the most of your usage of your Samsung Galaxy Note. At the moment there are clearance sales on the Note from Mobile Phone Checker, as many of the retailers around the UK are looking to clear the shelves to make way for the influx of Samsung Galaxy S3 handsets that are heading their way into the country soon.
As Android’s operating system, the cameras and HD videos become more and more clever and power-hungry, the only downside that many smartphones have is their need to almost be constantly plugged in. After rigorous testing from Mugen Power, the battery has received high praise after passing its quality control and having a low return rate. Finally, it seems that we might have an answer to the problem of having to carry your phone charger around with you when you’re a heavy user. Using 3G, Wi-Fi, making HD videos and browsing the Internet sucks the life out of your phone and in many cases you rarely get the battery life that is advertised. Now, if you choose the Mugen Power battery pack for your Note – and most likely other smartphones are having better batteries developed – then you can use your ‘phablet’ to the fullest without having to plug it in!
This is fantastic news for all Samsung smartphone users as there finally is a solution to the weak batteries that normally come as standard. While the quoted figures of 40+ hours of standby time and 8 or so hours of talk time as well as similar for Internet browsing, what isn’t taken into account is if you use many resources then you’re more likely to need to recharge after just a few hours. When you’re not near a power source that becomes a major problem, and it’s almost always when you’re lost and need to use Google Maps, for instance.
The Mugen Power battery has just been launched and if it’s as successful as it should be then we could well see more high-powered and high-capacity batteries hitting the shelves for more than just the Samsung Galaxy Note, such as the latest Galaxy S3.
