Mugen announces a 6,200mAh battery for the LG G4, promises more than double the battery life

Being one of the very few high end devices of 2015 to feature a removable battery, the LG G4 can be equipped with a larger-capacity, third-party battery, which will effectively increase its battery life. However, a custom battery usually takes its toll on the silhouette of the device. 

Well, such is the case with Mugen, an accessory manufacturer, which just had a crack at a third-party battery for the G4. The freshly announced HLI-G4XL Li-ion jiucer for LG's flagship device has a capacity of 6,200mAh, more than double the one of the G4's stock battery. Mugen promises a 2.07 times better battery life than the stock juicer. 

As a reminder, the LG G4 lasted for 6 hours and 6 minutes in our battery benchmark test, a not-too-shabby result for a Quad HD device, but we've definitely seen better.

The HLI-G4XL is immediately available for $89.50 with free worldwide shipping. Since it's larger and thicker than the stock battery, Mugen's 6,200mAh offering comes with a bespoke rear cover, currently available in either black, white, or gold colors.

Are you planning on getting one? If yes, head to the source link.

Finally a cover that is fitted to the battery. Others, for example my GS4 extended battery cover makes the entire length of the phone fatter. Having only thr battery compartment fatter will aid in gripping/holding the device as well.

Hey what extended battery are you using? I'm using a kiwibird 2600mah lipo battery case and it looks neater as well as add some protection to the phone. The case also doesn't appear as thick as the other extended battery cases

I assume that metal thingie in the bottom on the back is a leg that you can pull out and have your phone stand so you can watch movies etc, and also hear the sound better from the speaker.
