ZeroLemon's case for the Galaxy S9+ will double its battery life
by Daniel Petrov / Mar 14, 2018, 4:27 AM
Samsung doesn't make official battery cases for its phones the way that Apple does, so third-party companies are usually swooping in to fill the void. After equipping the spring flagships Galaxy S8, S8+ and Note 8 with some of the best value-for-money battery cases, ZeroLemon is at it again, this time equipping the high-ender of the Android spring, Samsung's Galaxy S9+.
How about doubling its battery life that is pretty middling, as can be expected from its Quad HD+ display and pedestrian battery capacity? That's exactly what ZeroLemon's 5200mAh Li-polymer wrapper promises. If you are wondering why only doubling it at that capacity, bear in mind that this is not a battery replacement, as the phone is sealed, of course, but rather an external power bank of sorts, housed in a convenient S9+ case for a double duty.
The gear has four colored LED lights to gauge how much charge it has left, and a pass through connection means you won’t have to take the case off first when charging. Granted, it makes the largish handset taller and thicker, but, if you will be taking the excellent S9+ camera away from a charger for more than a day, you might be willing to overlook the added bulk. The best part is that the ZeroLemon pack currently goes at $39.99 introductory price before it starts shipping on Amazon in the next two weeks, so hit the source link if you are interested.

- Camera 12 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, Octa-core, 2800 MHz
- Storage 256 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3500 mAh

a small power bank will make more sense and you can use it with other devices I find battery cases a stupid investment

I understand your argument but I would counter by saying these are great for days when you know you're going to be out all day taking pictures and video aka trips and such. I would definitely get one of these for trips but I would use a power bank if needed one for every day/general use.

Where are you going to charge your phone if you're not near an outlet? Think about it. Say for instance you're in a new city and out exploring. Your phone can charge while you relax without having to plug it in to something. If you're out your out and your phone is constantly charging with a battery case. Don't make it more difficult than it has to be.

i hate power banks. carrying around a phone with an umbilical cord connected to a small brick is far more cumbersome than a battery that wraps around your device. but i have a V20 with a removable battery so these issues don't affect me until i upgrade -_-

Do they have to be this ugly though?

If you want to see ugly, look at the ones for the HTC 10. It has this huge bump on the bottom where the charge port is. Looks like this one only marginally increases the height of the phone, unlike the other ZeroLemon variants which add nearly an inch to the height.

Samsung's battery backpack for the s7edge was the best. Much less compact and delivered power wirelessly so it didn't add any length to the chin. Although I don't need a back up battery even at that time, would like to see it brought back.

nah, the charge power was too weak for use while charge and battery wasn't that big. Incipio and other brands on Amazon offer better packs. But if you want to talk Samsung backpack battery, the Note 7 was the best of the series. The Note 7 one was IP67 water resistance
