I'm all for saving money where I can, but I wouldn't try to save a few dollars on something as dangerous as a battery, which can and do explode/overheat while in your pocket or hand. But I guess that's up to you and your priorities.
what? that doesn't make sense at all. The batteries are built from a machine, they're NOT hand made, so yes, they are built to the same standard...

its up to you...but i done the test when I have the Samsung galaxy S2 and S3

Mugen vs Anker vs some other brand and from what I see, there is absolutely no difference, if a "sticker" from Mugen justify you paying 1/5 of the price of the phone then go ahead...but its better to educate others so they don't make the same mistake.

P.S all the phone that I used that have removable battery or battery case, I never had one that will "explode" in my hands...
HTC Touch pro II ---> Tmobile G1 ---> HTC HD2 ---> Tmobile G2 --> Samsung galaxy S II --> Samsung galaxy S3--> Sony Xperia "Zed"--->HTC one M7(Thank God, dont ever own a Sony)--->LG G2--->HTC one M8


Tmobile Slate -----------> Blackberry playbook --------> Samsung galaxy Tab 10.1 ---------->Nexus 7 ---------------->Nexus 7 Second Gen ---------> Dell Venue 8 Pro

Default verdict? worth it or not

ok rather than discussing the quality control differences....can we have some hard factual data on what the charging capability is of this battery pack?

does it charge the phone from 0 to 100% ? how quickly? does it charge the phone 1x or 1.5 x or 2x?

My experience is that this case can charge the phone 100% with minimal to no use. If you are using it moderately you'll get around 60-75% and heavy around 50%.

When I am streaming music and using GPS it will still charge but at a much slower rate. Other cases I have used under those conditions will continue to drain.
