Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge looks cool with Mophie Juice Pack

Mophie has been one of the cooler brands to go to if you wanted your phone to have a protective casing and extra battery power on the go. Now we’re looking at a quirky-shaped phone like Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge – which doesn’t have normal edges, of course – and see how it would look like with Mophie’s newly-designed Juice Packs especially for Samsung’s edgy flagship alternative.

Google enters battery race, looks to improve current tech

Looks like everybody who’s everybody in the mobile device industry is looking at better, badder, more kick-butt batteries – that is, without the hyperbole, a battery that will last longer and will fit into smaller spaces than the current lithium-ion standard. Google is the latest name to get into the game of who will produce what is considered the “holy grail” right now in mobile devices – a longer lasting, thinner, and probably flexible battery.

Pixel OFF app saves power on LED screens

LED and AMOLED screens are admired by screen junkies all over the word because they produce the deepest blacks in a mobile device display. This is because LED screens, including Samsung’s more preferred AMOLED screens, just basically turn off when they're assigned to draw the "black" color. That’s what the new app “Pixel OFF” tries to do, because theoretically, LED pixels not emitting light draws no electrical power.

Ampere is a charge measuring app, also monitors battery discharge

The problem with charging your Android device is that you notice that sometimes a charger will charge quickly and sometimes not so quickly. The science behind this is actually the quality of the USB cable and the amount of juice the charger is pumping, plus a number of other variables. The Ampere app is able to read through all that and give you the current amount of power you are receiving during charging, and the amount of discharge as well when not charging.

Anybody who’s anybody in the smartphone and mobile device industry is at the MWC 2015 in Barcelona, including famed antivirus and security software experts Avast who have themselves just announced two new mobile apps that will aim to “clean up” our phones. “Avast GrimeFighter” is a no-nonsense clean up app, while “Avast Battery Saver” says it all in the name.

BLU Products intros new Studio Energy phone with a 45-day battery

BLU Products is not exactly famous worldwide but for us geeks, we know that it's one of the best manufacturers of unlocked mobile devices. Thanks to BLU, there is no need to get a new phone subscription plan because you can simply use your prepaid card or you current plan. The latest smartphone from the company is the BLU Studio Energy which was first shown off at the CES earlier in January.

Gionee Marathon M3 boasts of 5,000 mAh battery

Gionee is not a popular brand but it’s been trying to come up with interesting handsets that could rival the more in-demand models. This Chinese phone manufacturer has recently introduced the Marathon M3 smartphone that boasts of a 5,000 mAh battery. That is one powerful phone because the highest we’ve seen so far is a 3,900 mAh battery on the DROID Turbo, Moto Maxx, and Huawei Ascend Mate 2.

Pronto Fast Charge battery gives a full charge in 5 minutes

At least that’s what it claims. The Pronto Fast-Charge battery is a Kickstarter project that claims to be able to give you 8 hours of power on 5 minutes of charging. Sounds ridiculous, considering that fact that this is what irritates us to breaking point about our mobile devices – when you need to charge your device and there’s just no time for charging. This might just be our savior, yes?

Potential app lets you know battery status of all your devices

Any device with low battery is deemed almost useless until you plug and see battery level rise. A full, green battery is always a sight to behold. But sadly, that is not always the case. Gadgets run on juice and most of them won’t last the whole day. The technique is to bring a charger or a power bank with you all the time. Or, just charge the device anytime there is a chance. You don’t want to suddenly run out of batt when you’re in an important conversation, do you?

Microsoft Research’s FingerShadow to reduce battery consumption

As smartphones and tablets continue to be more and more "sophisticated", one problem remains constant among all of them (yes, even you Samsung): battery life isn't all it's cracked up to be. The more you use your device, the more you need either a battery extender or to hug the wall socket. Microsoft has recently conducted a research that might lessen gadgets' battery consumption, at least for those that use OLED screens, and they're calling the project Fingershadow.
