Mugen-Power Battery 3600mAh (T-Mobile G2/Desire Z ) Review


I had the privilege to test the Mugen-Power battery last week and all I have to say is “WOW”. I tested the 3600mAh battery for my T-Mobile G2 or Desire Z like you European folks like to call it.

Android users specially use their phones a lot whether it’s socializing on major social networks or surfing the web, the native battery just can’t cut it. If you do a simple search on Twitter with these keywords “Android Battery“, you will find a large amount of people complaining about their phone’s battery life being too short. Some people consider some apps to help them save their phone’s battery juice, but our friends over at Mugen-Power batteries has the answer.

I’ve heard some of you say that the batteries make your phone look “bulky”, but look at the bright side. Would you rather your phone died every two hours or go on the whole day without worrying about your phone dying? I pick Mugen-Power. I don’t mind the extra “junk in the trunk”. After reading the instructions and charging the battery for 8 hours before use. I put the bad boy to test. On heavy use it lasted about 12 hours, that includes tweeting, Facebooking, Youtubing, Tethering with an iPhone (AT&T sucks), and still managed to keep on going. On stand by with little use (just calling and text with data disabled) the bad boy could go one for almost a week, i got 5 days.

When you have a battery like that on your device you truly get the Android experience. I used to think that having an extra battery would be better, but do the math, if a battery lasts 4 hours on heavy use + 4 more hours that 8 hours in total for both. With a Mugen-poer battery you can have 10 hours or more. If you really want to bring forth Androids true potential do yourself a favor and Mugen-Power up!
