Battery cases usually take a while to appear after a phone's introduction, and Mugen Power's new 3000 mAh wrapper for the Sony Xperia Z1
is no exception. The flagship was announced way back in September, but we will be getting Mugen's battery case on February 22nd, though you can place a preorder right now, for the healthy price of $89.50.
The phone's own battery has the same 3000 mAh capacity, so you can effectively double the arguably ho-hum endurance of your Z1, plus Mugen's product will serve as a protective case for it, so you shoot two birds with one pricey stone.
The new battery case uses a lithium polymer battery, and has four LED lights on the back that show the charge state of the internal battery. The downside is, as usual, that the case adds additional bulk to the already chubby and hefty Xperia Z1.
