The Anker Extended Battery and Cover Combo for the Galaxy S5 is kind of like a battery case, but works a little bit differently. To pull this off, Anker paired a huge, 7500mAh extended battery with a custom-designed TPU case that eliminates the need of a battery door. There are some huge advantages with this case, and some big disadvantages, so let’s delve in.
Battery cases are popular because battery technology has kind of reached a stand-still. Rather than battery capacity growing, phone’s are having to become more efficient with their energy usage because people want thinner devices, and you can’t make a larger capacity battery without making it physically larger until they figure something out.
Anker figured something out, and it’s called throwing slim-ness to the wind and giving you a huge 7500mAh battery. With a battery this huge, you’ll be able to go mulitple days on a single charge. To put things into perspective, a stock Galaxy S5 battery is rated for 2800mAh. That’s over 2x and close to 3x the capacity.
And unlike a battery case that has to actually transfer that power to your stock battery, this is the battery, so you’ll get way more life out of a single charge from this solution than you would a 7500mAh true battery case. Food for thought.
The battery itself is very well-manufactured, as Anker is one of the leaders in battery tech and this particular unit has premium cells, IC chips that prevent short circuiting, and a lot of testing.
Since this is an extended battery, you don’t need any LED notifications or an on and off switch, so instead you get a very large, shock-absorbent TPU case that does a very good job protecting against the occasional accident.
If you do happen to drop your Galaxy S5 while in this thing, it’ll definitely bounce and your battery may shake out if it’s a hard enough fall. For the most part, your S5 will be well-protected while inside.
Extremely good value
No NFC or IR
Makes Galaxy S5 not waterproof
This is a very solid pickup for your Galaxy S5 if you’re running into battery life issues and don’t mind the extra bulk. Anker also offers a no-hassle 18 month warranty, which is good for any sort of power accessory like a battery. This is a very good pickup that will enable multiple days of usage on a single charge.
