Tips on How to Buy External Battery Cases

Tablets and smart phones have proven to be very efficient pocket computers in these times when you need to redeem your time. However, let’s face it, with the ability that these gadgets have to multi task, they drain their batteries pretty fast and if you are away from home most of the time, this can be really frustrating.


Necessity is the mother of invention. This need led to the production of devices that enable you to charge your phone while away from home. Truth be told, my Samsung Galaxy S4 i9500 battery case has been one of the best investment so far.

However, when buying, I was faced with a challenge of choosing the best for my Samsung smart phone as there are so many out there. This article is intended to point you in the right direction and help you make the right choices based on some considerations that you will make.



Before you purchased your smartphone, say the Samsung Galaxy s5, I am almost certain that you factored in the design it had. If you were comfortable with the design or not, well, it turns out that for the Samsung Galaxy S5 battery case, you also have to consider its design as it directly influences its usability.

The case that you choose should provide you with easy access to the deactivation and activation power button, all the small holes or small cuts to access the phones features as well as the volume control buttons.


Weight and Capacity

The different chargers that you will find when you are out shopping all have different capacities that range from about 1200mAh to about 3600mAh. The 1200mAh chargers have the ability to charge the phone to 70%. On the other hand, chargers with capacities higher than 2000mAh can fully charge your smart phone.


However, you should probably notice that the higher the capacity, the more the weight of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 battery case. You therefore will have to strike a balance between the capacity and weight that you are comfortable with.

The features

I personally love gadgets that have several little nice features. This for me makes a difference. Charging cases are no different. There are those that will come with indicators that notify you the amount of charge that it has left. Other still will have kick stands which is a nice feature as it will allow you to use the phone while it is charging.


In addition to this, you probably would want one that supports Micro-USB. This will save you the hustle of carrying many power adapters since many smartphones use the Micro-SB cable. In addition, when it is time to replace it, it will be cheaper.


Apple certified products

If you are however buying an iPhone 5 battery case you will need to make sure that you buy a product that is apple certified. This will reduce the risk of:

  •      Overcharging
  •      Overheating
  •      Having electrical circuit shorts that ay ruin the phone’s battery.
