So while randomly trawling the Internet for accessories for the ZR, I stumbled on this.

Mugen Power has come up with two batteries for the zr. The 4600 mah version comes with a battery door of course, while the 2500 mah one promises to fit into the existing back cover but for $44, doesn't quite make sense to spend that much money on a battery that will give you 9% more battery life.

I thought about getting the 4600 mah battery (deliveries begin in the first week of September) but two things held me back:
1. Will the new back door support nfc and the waterproofing? Not sure about this. The website doesn't have any proper images.
2. The phone looks like a whale.

What do you guys think?

Here's the link in case you're interested and for a 7% discount, use the coupon code "MUGENRULEZ"

I think it's have to look like a whale bro.., its still a 4600 mAh battery

For the waterproofing, i saw a video on YouTube of the mugen power batteries of the Xperia V, which he's design similar to the ZR, n they say the back cover they provide with the battery is keeping on the waterproof feature, n water can't get inside..

So u don't need to afraid man.. otherwise u can get one of this n be careful not to be around water..

Still here

I had the Mugen-battery to my Xperia V and I was truly disappointed about the door.
It could fall off in my pocket without any reason.
The sealing looked like original but I couldnt rely on the waterproof quality.

The battery itself worked as expected!

50% more battery life for 17. Still ugly, though:

They should make something like a 3000mah that doesn't look like your phone swallowed another one. I could live with a 2-3cm more but this is ridiculous.

Also something like this will be much more good looking.
