Serious claim without any proof.

That Mugen is vastly overpriced. Better to just buy 2 extra batteries from Anker for 25 bucks.

I really like the looks of the one in your link, but would like to have the option for a clip rather than just a belt loop.

Then you got a bad one or you're doing something wrong. I tested the ZL outside the phone, on a stand-alone discharge tester. It came it slightly above the sticker rating. It's the first extended battery I've ever tested that does. I have not tested Mugen or Sedio, I find them very overpriced. In the phone, I do get 3x the life of my stock battery. Ignore the stupid android % indicator. It's a guess. The only test that matters is 100% to turn off time in a phone, or a real external discharge test.

OK, so YOU have been a member of XDA community since 2012 and have 43 posts in here. EVERY SINGLE post promoting MUGEN battery.

I'm not trying to be XDA "police", we got our own distinguish admins and real cops on this forum If you want to promote YOUR battery, I could care less. But if you come here to trash the competition with false accusation - that is NOT COOL!!! Just ask a few other vendors who no longer members of this forum.

He obviously gets paid by Mugen or work for them. Look at his previous posts, within a month he posted all the links directing people to get to mugen site. Admin, ban his account please? i signed up just to write this

Another reason not to buy overpriced, fake mah mugen batteries

I have both the Mugen and the ZeroLemon and they are both fine batteries that in my experience live up to their claims.

With the Mugen(6400mAh) I get double the stock battery(3100mAh) life and with the ZL(9100mAh) I get triple the stock battery life.

One is not better than or worse than the other. The ZeroLemon simply has more juice, that is the difference. Oh and the price. Mugen being too high probably.

Just my opinion after owning and using both.

ZL is clearly better in every persepctive except for ths case..

I personally cannot justify Mugen's pricing, they are aiming higher profit margin than apple

Oh well, some people like to spend money for nothing, so be it

I had few cycles so far from my ZL battery, and i could not be happier with battery life


Note: Phone is no stock/not rooted. Power saving on ocassionally


Typical battery life from my stock battery was 1~2 days with 6~8 hours of screen time


Zero Lemon

First charge: screen brightness auto / power saving / mostly wifi

over 2 days and half use with 24+ screen on time 8% battery left


Second charge: brightness auto / wifi and lte

over 3 days use with 20+ screen on time with some juice left


Since then i am using full screen brightness with lte because i cannot drain this thing

with 100% brightness with everything on i get over 16 hours of screen time, which is amazing


This is the first time that i do not worry about battery for my "smart" phone absolutely

Yeah, don't listen to anyone saying bad things about the zerolemon battery. I'm a moderate/heavy user. I use my phone for navigation/music (always simultaneously when driving to new locations in an area I just moved) a lot, have bluetooth always on with my pebble or for headphones when needed, gmail sync, never on wifi unless I'm browsing at home (i know wifi on even idle apparently saves battery but I'm too lazy to do that every time, lol), location settings always on except gps (until necessary for navigation), auto screen brightness, sms popup with fast blink setting, Advanced Task Killer Free without killing apps that keep opening up and using it frequently to close apps that I no longer am using (killing system/constant open apps like maps will drain your batter because these apps will fight you and keep restarting). I text a good amount, and my calls vary from minutes to an hour on and off but not too often compared to texting. I also live in a very excellent 4G LTE area with 5 bars always.

I am on perseus 35 kernel with CleanRom Ace 4.5 (smoothest for me so far - might try 4.9 soon because CleanRom doesn't disappoint).

I've officially been off the charger for 55 hours with all of the above having been done at many points in that time period and my phone is still at 77%.

This battery can easily go for 5-6 days if you use it the way I do. This is also on the first 12 hour charge...so if everyone claims that it gets better with the discharging of 5 cycles...I might be able to even push 7 days. I'll keep you all updated...but a battery that can last a week? That's insanely awesome in my book. If you guys have any questions or need advice on apps or kernel settings let me know.

Perseus Kernel 35: CPU:1400/300 (for some reason keeping it at 300 avoids freezes of any kind- odd but true- this is also what you need to do if you guys use the big 4G/5G profiles so the phone won't ever bootloop). GPU: 640. I/O Scheduler: Zen/Zen. LED Settings: Fast blinking, No fade. Audio: Headphone Boost at 63 (57 standard). Btw, even if you put the cpu max at 1600 or 1800 - the battery won't be that much affected...I've tried it. The kernel/rom combo is that good.

If anyone has better/more realistic tips for performance and battery life, feel free to share/add to this. Sorry for the super long post. Thank you

Mugen and Zerolemon both make awesome batteries, Mugen just charges more money.

That's their prerogative. Doesn't mean anything is wrong with their battery, the Mugen simply doesn't have as much value for your dollar. I personally don't worry about value when buying gadgets. I worry about fun and the Mugen and Zerolemon have both been fun to use.

Mine has a problem that the bigger battery does not line up straight with the smaller battery. So the bigger battery pushes the TPU case top right corner outward and I can see the edge of phone.

Returned and ordered a new one. Hope the second one both batteries are aligned properly.
