The official spare battery kit for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is here
For a brief time, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was the longest-lasting Quad HD phone in the wild. Only recently it got surpassed by Motorola's monstrous DROID Turbo, which currently reigns supreme with its 3,900mAh juicer. Regardless of this, the Galaxy Note 4 is still no slouch in the battery department and will easily last you through a day. Then again, a certain breed of mobile enthusiasts exists - the so-called heavy users - which can easily go through the battery of the Galaxy Note 4 like there's no tomorrow. Fortunately for them, the battery of the Galaxy Note 4 is removable, which is one of the few signature features of most of Samsung's devices.

Samsung just released an official battery kit for its newest phablet. It consists of a spare 3,220mAh battery, a see-through protective case, and a 1.7A charger, yet lacks a microUSB charging cable, but we are quite sure that this is no big deal since most of us have a few of these lying around. The charger itself comes with an LED indicator that indicates if the battery is being charged.

 You can get the full official kit for $37.95, but if you have no need of the included protective case, you can only get the battery and the charger for $27.95. Also have in mind that this battery probably won't work with the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge.

No, thank you. I don't need extra battery for my iPhone 6.

Yeah and the Note 4 battery still lasts longer and does more than an iBend Plus.

If you know that the Note 4 will last 9 hours in a single charge. Why would you buy another extra battery?

I'm qualified to answer being that I own a Note 4 and spare battery kit. I rarely charge my phone via cable. In a matter of fact it's been 3 weeks since I needed to plug in a usb charger. For me it's easier just to pop out the battery and turn the phone on. It takes only 1 minute to go from 0 to 100%. Not only that but there's less strain on the charging circuit, usb port and you reboot on a daily basis. And if I'm going on a long drive or air plane trip I got a spare. I see zero cons from having a removable battery on deck.

I agree with part of that. I have a Note 4 and I had the 3 and 2 and I never needed an extra battery. The type of people who do need them are those who talk on their phone all day. Phone calls use more battery and constantly keeping the display on and using WiFI. I pull my 4 off the charge and when heading home I still have at least 60% left. My phone last 2.5 days on a single charge. My Note 3 did too. Even after a year with the same battery, it still lasted 1.5 days on a single charge. My Note 2 lasted also 2 work days on a single charge. Plus with Ultra Save Mode and a charger that charges the device 50% in 30 mins, you just don't need a second battery. Unless you're doing a trans-continental flight

Just saw this 3 hours ago. A swappable battery is the most practical as you may just charge with this set while you have the Note 4 truly wireless.

I don't need it, my Note 4's battery life is great and fast charging is another reason why i will be skipping this. Still, it might come in handy for many Note 4 owners, not me though.

I like this, not sure if it's a must have but the nice thing is the battery case. Back in the flip phone days I used to carry an extra battery unprotected in my pants pocket knowing full well of the danger.

Is it April fools day? Do you seriously expect anyone with a note 4 to put that clumping great lump of ugly on their phone?

You don't put it on your phone, it's a charger/case for a spare battery so when you're out of juice you can pop in the spare and be back at 100%. Weather or not this is better than a battery pack really comes down to what's more important to the individual: preserving battery/port health or not having to turn your phone off, remove a case of you have one, and remove the back to replace the battery.

Swappable batteries are great!! I always laugh at people in my business when I see people with non replaceable batteries glued to the wall getting that extra charge at the wall or with a portable cell block. A quick swap and go is awesome. I guess those who never owned one will never know!

I liked the design of the Note 1 spare battery charger better because it has a groove on the end so you could use it as a stand while charging the battery. If you try to do the same thing with the Note 3 charger, which is the same design as the Note 4 one, you have to set the phone in the charging bay sideways. But this sits so high and far back that the entire thing tips over if you try to use the touch screen and you can't do it while the spare battery is charging. The new design looks much sleeker sitting on the desk charging, but the old design was much more functional.

This is one of the main reasons I love Samsung. I have this for my Note 2 and Note 3. Will sure get it for my upcoming Note 4. I cant live without it. Goodbye to phone charging

Would be useful if I could even get the dang phone. DE is still on backorder on the Samsung site. Didn't realize I was buying a nexus 6 and have to wait for the next gen phones to come out before I can even get one.
