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...

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.

Battery Full
What makes the difference in batteries quality and price:

- quality of cells: you can buy really cheap cells which will last 1-2 months or you can buy good quality cells which will last for a year+ like we do
- controller electronics: you can use a cheap bad quality controller which makes the battery dangerous as it may overheat and explode or you can use a good quality controller chip which will protect against overcharging and overheating like we do
- quality control: you can run a series of tests after the battery is assembled to make sure it works as expected like we do or you can just sell it as it is
- after sales service: you can sell and forget about the customer or you can offer a 365 days free returns and exchange warranty like we do.

none of my aftermarket battery lasted 1-2 months, that range from Hypermax brand to anker and I did run benchmark on my prior phones, I find the differences are minimal not enough to justify the 3-4 time price differences.
