I know nothing about this company, just came across this press release;

New battery provides capacity of 4800mAh - more than triple over stock Dell Streak battery.
(PRWEB) September 23, 2010 -- Mugen Power Batteries (http://www.mugen-power-batteries.com), producer of premium quality extended batteries for mobile devices, announced the launch of new extended battery for Dell Streak. The new product - HLI-M01MXL (http://www.mugen-pow...treak-m01m.html) has a capacity of 4800mAh - more than TRIPLE of the stock Dell Streak battery, which only has 1530mAh.

I dont like the look of the streak with this huge battery attached to the back if the picture is anything to go by, mind you I dont have some of the battery issues some people are having/had.

Interesting, but sure adds thickness to the Streak. Pretty expensive at $ 129.95 too...

with great power comes .. great big batteries.

i used a mugen extended battery on my Nexus One and didn't have any problems with it.

i'm two minds - i love the convenience of an extended battery - hate the inconvenience of none of the standard accessories fitting afterwards ...

will wait for a video review of this mutha before final opinion - not an impulse buy at $129

I remember reading that it's not always to do with the mAh that they quote. A lot of talk I saw on this other Android forum about how sufficient the battery has to be. This was when I had my HTC Desire. Anyway the higher quoted mAh batteries did not last longer, probably about the same as the HTC original or worse. So it's to do with the quality of the battery.

A lot has to do with the make up of the battery, the way in which it holds its charge, the way in which the battery reports charge to the device and also when the battery stops getting charged.

For instance, a lot of poor batteries have insufficient ways of telling if it is fully charged, this causes overcharging and kills off parts of the cell, meaning in a short space of time, it will drastically reduce the lifespan of the battery.

I would never trust 3rd party batteries, those who have a PSP and have bought the 'mega' batteries will know that mAH from 3rd parties hardly ever equates to quality. Battery technology is probably the slowest growing/progressing tech as they still need to maintain a really high quality in order to strafe off degrading.

There are some exceptions and no-one can really vouch for each model, but at the same time, you get mixed reviews from the same product for this reason.

Thanks,

thanks, I think I'll stick to carrying a spare and maintaining the svelte lines of my streak... plus it would take some serious modding to get my official case to fit around that...

hi
i have use mugen with my hp 614c
no problem with battery or delivery
everything ok
BUT
besides turn in ugly my device or this device
when it fell out of my pocket im 190cm with the extra weight
the fall fxxx my device
i believe if i was on stock i woudnt have any problem
and i suggest external power (portable charger or extra charged battery to all of you )

because the acceleration with extra weight brings you device out of specs for fall

take care
hope i helped

Unfortunately that's not entirely true....
Once critical mass has been reached, all things will fall at the same speed (depending on aerodynamics...etc). :P

cant resist a physics twist in a topic. The force it hits the ground with is the change in momentum (mass x Velocity) divided by the time to change momentum (hitting the floor). so even though there is no change in acceleration, the extra mass gives it more momentum so the force goes up.

I suppose it really depends on how it hits the ground. sometimes its just bad luck that you twang a gadget in a soft spot.
Just my geeky 2 pence worth.

Also need to consider:
Height before drop minus distance before terminal velocity (deducted from 'Absolute' terminal velocity) divided by physical mass of dynamic proportions and maximum rebound density of object and target materials, yeah, boring lol

Hi!
Is there any chance to fix battery indicator in Android for such huge capacity battery?
It's indicates charge level incorrectly.
For more than half a day I using battery with level less than 1% with no chance to know the real status of charge.
