Extended batteries for bestselling phones

There are two trends going on here. On one hand, mobile devices are getting thinner and lighter. On the other hand, screens are getting bigger to accommodate touch interface comfortably while more versatile, graphics-heavy apps are demanding more power quite dramatically. If we had another hand, we’d probably have a smartphone in that one, too.
People also want to charge them less often. Although Li-Po batteries were a good try, they still they don’t provide enough usage time for the devices currently on the market. According to Microwave Journal, smartphone power demands are spiking and have been for the past few years, with power consumption increasing 300 percent for displays, 275 percent for peripherals, and 200 percent for processors since 2009.
With the advances in fat pipe Wi-Fi and cellular data packages, streaming HD video in real time has become a standard feature, driving up power consumption in all three of the major battery hogs. RFID and near field communication payment systems have already begun to require more power as these technologies communicate directly with other devices, transforming your smartphone into a wallet, ID and a keychain. With this sort of responsibility, finding a reliable power source when you need it will become a serious issue.
Not only are we downloading more powerful apps, we’re spend more quality time with our phones. Sales from apps are a $30 billion market right now and they have more than doubled in revenue every year since 2008. In a clear sign of the future, Angry Birds is approaching 2 billion downloads while sales of TVs have decreased this year for the first time since they were invented. The Business Insider demonstrated our growing dependence on apps by comparing how long three generations of Internet technologies took to secure one million users. It took AOL nine years; Facebook nine months. The Draw Something app took 9 days.
The two apps mentioned above are games, because we are spending almost half of our smartphone time playing games. Another quarter of the time is on social media, which is a kind of game in itself. Both types of interactions are driving up power consumption through advanced graphic displays. The future of 3D holo-displays is already under development and we can expect more realistic renderings in all our apps. Perhaps, as they say, in the end we will be able to do everything with nothing. In the meantime, stay close to your charger.
We have come across this very interesting thread on Reddit, started by a Battery Engineer where he gives a lot of good answers to questions about lithium-ion chemistry based batteries.

Nice picks from it
Q: if you were on a deserted island and had a phone with reception but your phone was dead. How would charge your phone?
A: I’d remove the protection circuit in the phone and use that last 20% of the battery they think I don’t know about.
whysoserial Q: Any real difference between a “name brand” battery (i.e., Energizer) and an “off brand” battery like you might find at a dollar store?
Any appreciable performance difference between a regular AA battery and a “high energy lithium” AA battery?
zth784 A: Yup. Energizer batteries are made with quality control standards by people that know what they’re doing. Offbrand batteries are made by chinese standards (aka, none). Chinese batteries, all, without fail, are completely terrible and don’t meet any of their specs. This is one of those things where you get what you pay for.
I’m making some assumptions here since you’re not giving me a brand, but the regular AA battery is probably alkaline and has a lower capacity than the high energy lithium. But this is just a generality, every manufacturer is different.

Here are the photos of our new 3600mAh Extended Battery for Nokia Lumia 820.
The back cover is available in Yellow, Red, Black and White colors:
|Original Battery Model||BP-5T (1650 mAh)|

Nokia Lumia 820 now has a 3600mAh extended battery to add to its list of accessories. This battery uses the same tech specs as the original OEM battery. We managed to put 2.16 times more capacity in this battery compared to the OEM battery and our tests shows than the phone works around 2 times longer compared to the original battery.
The battery is available in our shop, 365 days warranty and free shipping worldwide.
