Double the battery life of Galaxy S6 and others with PhoneSuit's snap-on Flex Pocket Charger

Double the battery life of Galaxy S6 and others with PhoneSuit's snap-on Flex Pocket Charger
Out in the boondocks, and the battery of your unibody Galaxy S6 running out? Hey, you can always carry a power bank, but, you know how it is - you usually forget the cable to connect your phone to the power bank, unless you got a model with a retractable USB cable inside.

Enter PhoneSuit's Flex Pocket Charger - a clever take on the honey-I-forgot-the-cable conundrum. It's a tiny power bank with 2600 mAh capacity, which is enough for juicing up most phones, and certainly enough to double the battery life on your Galaxy S6, too. The beautiful idea here is that the Flex Pocket Charger is a snap-on endeavor, complete with its own microUSB connector. You just remove the cap, snap the charger on your Galaxy S6, or any other Android phone, and you are good to go for another day or so. 

PowerSuit has a similar contraption for the iPhone as well, this one with a Lightning port, and twenty bucks more expensive than the $49.99 asking price of the Android Pocket Charger.

It won't double your battery life. To charge one battery with another, you're usually stuck with an efficiency that is at best 60 to 70% (depending on quality of components, conversion and output rate, etc.). Which means the rest will mostly be turned into heat. Thus maybe you can add about 60 to 70% charge back into an S6 battery.

Now we know why Samsung didn't upped the battery capacity for S6. Third party accessory vendors, Sammy's priority are the accessory manufacturers from the very start. I won't be surprised if Mophie will have a battery case with embedded extra storage. Sorry Sammy, if you're doing the Apple business strategy you'll be having more negatives on your sales report.

Here's a thing. Acc. to Samsung: S5: 10 hours web browsing, 12 hour video S6: 12 hours web browsing, 13 hour video. S6 will last longer than S5. Battery capacity is not the whole measure. See you when battery test results come.

His source is Samsung. Those are the numbers they claimed at MWC.

Watch the unpacked event. Samsung itself claimed these numbers.

At the time of release (Kitkat software still), Samsung claimed 11 hours of video for the S5. Those numbers have been verified by several sources (including Anandtech), so I'm pretty confident that the S6 claims will hold up as well.
