Modern smartphones are often plagued by less than stellar battery performance, which sometimes makes a full day usage of the device impossible. The core of this problem lies in the fact that battery technology is still lagging behind the evolution of other smartphone internal components, such as the display, processor, or graphics chip.
If you’re a multi-tasker who refuses to be weighed down by USB charge cables or wall chargers inside your manbag, getting an extra battery is one way to ensure that you can complete yet another round of Angry Birds, whilst still receiving and sending those important ‘work’ e-mails.
If you love your Galaxy Nexus, chances are you’ve been rather disappointed by its measly battery life. In that case, you’ll be pleased to know that an extended (really extended) battery pack is now available. Produced by Mugen, the 4000 mAh extended battery pack for the Galaxy Nexus also comes with a built-in stand and a new battery cover. Note that the extra battery hours come at the expense of a bulkier phone, but that’s to be expected.
The Galaxy Nexus comes with a 1750 mAh battery, which critics have said can only give roughly 4-5 hours of battery life with continuous usage. The phone can typically last a day, though, if you don’t consider yourself a power user. If you don’t mind the extra weight and the $99 price sticker, getting Mugen’s massive battery pack will help you easily double the battery life of your Galaxy Nexus.
Motorola seems to have cracked the battery mystery with its Droid Razr Maxx. This particular offering from Motorola comes with a 3300 mAh battery that can deliver 15 hours of video playback. That’s a lot of movies to watch. As for Samsung, the company has promised to bring out devices with significantly better battery performance for their 2012 lineup. We’re waiting, Sammy!
Tell us, how does your Galaxy Nexus stand when it comes to battery life? What’s your record?
