Galaxy Note 5400mAh extended battery makes it even more massive

So you've got your gigantic Samsung Galaxy Note all gussied up with the official build of Ice Cream Sandwich, playing around with the S-Pen and generally making other smartphone owners feel like the guy who brought a Kia to a monster truck rally. What could you do to make the Galaxy Note even more audacious? Why, add a massive extended battery complete with replacement cover of course! Enter Mugen Power, which is now offering a 5400mAh replacement battery for the popular phablet.

The Galaxy Note's standard battery is no slouch: that huge 5.3-inch screen allows the battery bay to extend for an impressive 2500mAh battery, giving the phone a good bit of longevity despite a lot of power draw. The Mugen battery is somewhat less restrained, bumping up the size and the life by a factor of about 2.1. Mugen isn't saying exactly how much the extended battery cover bulges the phone's dimensions, but it looks like it's just under double the thickness of the original.

Since the battery doesn't actually take up all of the space of the flush cover, they decided to add an extra feature: a kickstand. As I've said often and loudly, I love kickstands. It almost makes the $98.95 price tag worth it (almost). THe battery on the site is market for AT&T's LTE version of the Galaxy Note (SGH-i717), but given our experience with Samsung's batteries it might work on the international model as well - no promises. Any takers, Galaxy Note owners?

    Might buy it if that wasn’t the most craptastic attempt at a stand I’ve ever seen.

    I like the looks and the battery longevity is going to make this a great options. Problem is fitting in the car dock.

    Why is the Razr Maxx then ONLY phone that can put a massive 24-hr-talk-time battery inside a VERY thin device?

    • Mr. Stackz

      The answer is simple. Others can’t be bothered to re-engineer the phone when they’re so busy putting massive cameras in there.

    I have the Note with the extended battery, it’s AWESOME and the stand on the back cover is a lot sturdier than it looks. Very happy with it.

    Where in the world are you going to find a belt clip or belt case??? not all of us have purses out here ya know.., personally I’d rather have a belt clip then to lose the phone because I keep having to place it somewhere :/
