I was wondering which one is better. I heard there were some problems with Anker, like random reboots. What are the pros and cons of each battery?

Anker is reliable and so is Mugen
You have to ask yourself one thing, which do you want to spend more on?

Ankaaaar!

Pros
- Works great, runs a lot longer than stock sensation
Cons
- May cause reboots (I've had them, but after I discharged completely and charged again, it hasn't done so since.)

Mugaaan!

Pros
- Closest to mentioned battery capacity
Cons
- Very expensive
- If you get the 3600mah, then possibly wifi and phone signal issues

Both are better than the stock, but personally - buying the mugen is not worth the price.

Another advantage to the Mugen is that it has working temperature sensors, which the Anker does not.

I have the 1950 mah Mugen and have been extremely pleased with it.

I've bought a couple of Anker batteries in the past for my Sensation and G2x, and I have to say they work pretty well. The most noticeable thing is that they don't get as hot, but they don't have temperature sensors, funny.

I would definitely go for Anker, although they make me worried sometimes because they are making these batteries in a Chinese factory...and I'm just not used to the idea of Chinese-made products working well.

Had an Anker for six months, never had any random reboots, battery life seems to be around 20% more than the stock battery.

For the money its a no brainer really.

Agreed! I personally like Anker over Muggen simply because of the price difference.

I run an Anker in both of my Sensations with no issues (knock on wood). For $40 bucks it's hard to go wrong.

As far as Chinese products go... Unfortunately, I trust many of them over US products. I know there are many cheap products from China, but I've also gotten many great deals either through import dealers and/or direct from China. The fact that these are being dealt through a reputable import dealer is a good indicator that they must be decent.

He does know most products we use on a daily basis, including these smartphones, were made in those factories?
