Battery life has long been the Achilles’ heel of smartphones, often barely able to last through a single day of full use...

Now that would be awesome no more charging during the hole day. now wish companies would take notes and add that much power in stead of a 2200 maH battery in a phone.

Its all fun and games untill the battery explodes. If they can do this for cell phone batteries what can they do for tablet batteries?

I do not want a battery that lasts more than a day on the cost of my life ;)

Chinese 2200mAh Batt exposion = comma
Chinese 2600mAh Batt explosion = death
Chinese 5000mAh Batt explosion = Overkill!

Sounds funny...lol...well...almost all of electronic appliances are made in china...so why worry about batteries.

Almost everything is made IN china. Do you feel the hurt in your butt?

almost every battery (phone, notebook, e-car) is made in China. They are world leaders in their business.

Sorry but if you'd notice, Most of the batteries of major players in the smartphone game are made in china. -.-

most phones are peaking at 3000 Mah 3rd QT. may be in a year or too be either 4000 or 5000 mah

It is possible. Looking at the dimension of the phone, screen size is 5.5, that means it is long and wide, so it can really take 5000maH

Yeah 5000mAh sounds awesome until it explodes on you. I could imagine how hot this thing is gonna get and how long it takes to fully charge. A lot of companies can do this, especially Moto, but obviously the trade offs is not worth it .SMH!!

Could you argument your words with facts or it is just your opinion?

Kindly explain the iPad battery capacity. Not that I'm a fanboy or anything. Just want some justification about exploding sh!t.

SGS3 and SGS4 are exploding these days a lot more because of chinese 3rd party battries others NOT

alot of people don't like the X phone because they call it mid range and a small battery me i personally like the X phone if they say u can go 24hrs a day with out doing lots of multi tasking on your phone youre good.

Great one.. Keep it up. i hope that all companies install high capacity batteries rather than going into the race of slimmer devices... I dont mind a 9-10mm thick device, but the battery must be high.. I dont understand why Nokia is still making brick-thick phones & not taking advantage of thickness to put in a huge battery...

Bigger batteries or better technology. Battery life is so behind the rest of technology right now.

lenovo has a big battery series, a dual core with 3000mAH and a quad with 4000mAH. The bigger screens seem to be allowing manufacturers to put in bigger batteries without drastically increasing thickness.

I hope the phone isn't too power hungry. Otherwise this just means longer recharge times.
19. sonisoe (Posts: 375; Member since: 06 May 2009)
its chinese... you can even now find extended batteries, yup, but way cheaper price than the quality ones. so in the end, its is either the same as the standard battery or the battery itself has a short life-span.

Soooo........Chinese 5000mah = 3000mah quality battery?
23. -box- (Posts: 3964; Member since: 04 Jan 2012)
Good, hope this sort of tech (if it's safe and of quality, of course) makes its way across the board. Higher-density batteries are very useful in the age of multi-core CPUs and more advanced GPUs, as mobile devices begin to reach older desktop levels of performance.
29. Sondae (Posts: 219; Member since: 02 Jan 2013)
I just hope this 5000mah it has a real quality control that last when using it and not sub-standard battery that explode when overcharged. Still sometimes numbers dont count some may claim there 5000mah but its actually 2000mah or less...
30. slyhounddog (Posts: 18; Member since: 28 Jun 2013)
The size of the battery isn't what matters, its how the phone optimizes it. A 2300 mah battery could easily last as long as a 3500 mah if it is optimized. Case and point, the Moto x.

My Note 2 lasts me the whole day 98% of the time. Hours of navigation is probably the only thing that can drain it by mid day. 5,000 mah would probably last two days under light/moderate use, but I'd probably still charge it every night so really not that different for me.

Using Note II with ZeroLemon 9300mAh (for about month now). Absolutely love this battery. So far record is 181hours from 1 charge (with 13hours screen time from that time). Its epic. When Note III will come out, I will most likely wait for offers from Mugen/ZeroLemon to see what monster they will decide to put there. I see this 9300mAh thing as a standart now, it will be hard to downgrade to something smaller in future...
