MUGEN, a staple in the battery case market, just released their Nexus 5 3000 mAh battery case. I'm pretty excited to see how this case fares up against the ZeroLemon and LimeFuel cases. Does anybody have the case or has seen a review for it. Is anybody else really excited about the news?!

would love to buy but for 90$ its a bit too expensive for my tastes.

Can someone explain why they are so expensive? is it build quality or is it just for the brand like apple

Does anyone have this case? I contacted Mugen and they claim that the case is only 1cm thick. I find that really hard to believe. The Nexus 5 by itself is 0.7cm. I can't believe that the case only adds 0.3cm to the thickness. The i-Blason case is regarded as very thin and it is still 1.6cm thick and the Mugen is a bigger battery than the i-Blason. Something doesn't seem right.

I think they meant that the case adds an additional 1cm thickness. So it would be 1.7cm thick with both the case and phone combined.

That may very well end up being the reality but their email was very specific and said the dimensions of the case are as follows.

Something definitely could be lost in translation of languages too. I have sent them a follow up email specifically on that 1 centimeter measurement so we will see what they have to say.

I'd love to find out that the one centimeter depth is accurate and that might honestly explain the reason why it is twice as much cost as the other options. They might have a much more refined design that allows them to do something like a custom shaped battery or something else to keep the size down.

Well, from this picture alone, you can pretty much see it's not .3cm thick. And the site says "Dimensions: W(70.96 mm) x D(20.2 mm) x H(151 mm)".

That is a photo of the CC-Nexus5-P, not the CC-Nexus5. Two different products.

The CC-Nexus5 looks just as thick. It's still not .3cm either way.
