Mugen Desire S Battery

Being used to the relatively endless battery lifetime of the BlackBerry, switching to an Android Desire S battery came as a slight surprise; out of the box I was only receiving about eight hrs of usage from a complete charge. A common report for a lot of people today I’m sure… Soon after some (well, two weeks) of fine-tuning I was able to reliably get about 36 hours out of the phone but it nonetheless meant I had to charge the phone each and every day to make sure I’d not get a flat battery pack at an essential time.

I decided it was time we evaluated one of the Mugen extended battery packs I’d read about.

I chatted to our buddies at MobileFun and asked for the Mugen Power 1800mAh android battery for the Desire S. The very next day it arrived with the post, and it was rapidly popped out of the product packaging. The initial thing I noticed was that Mugen advocate the battery be fully charged for at the least 12 hours before initial use. It is actually then suggested the battery is allowed to drain totally just before recharging once again. This need to be repeated for the initial couple of charges. At first we believed this was baloney, but on investigating further it’s essentially to let the handset to reset the battery level sensor for the greater capacity battery.

On very first charge re-charge (after the initial 12 hour charge), it seemed to take *ages* for the phone to tell me the battery was full. Subsequent charges on the other hand appear to be much quicker (about 90 minutes compared to almost three hours at 1st). This can be apparently really typical and is just the telephone performing an overcharge for a new battery.

Right after some full cycles, we decided it was time to test the battery with a few instances comparing it with a Desire S having a stock battery pack.

Each phones were totally reset with new email accounts and twitter feeds, each had been set to identical notification update periods. They had been as closely as doable *identical* to one another with just the batteries being unique.

Performing identical tasks on them both, the very first thing noticed was with the Mugen powered phone, the extended batteries remained at 100% for just over 6 hours where the stock battery had dropped 1 notch following just 4 hours.

Three hours later making rather high load (each phones streaming from Spotify over a WiFi connection) The stock telephone had dropped to 50% where the Mugen was holding strong at 80%.

The subsequent test was a couple of hours of gaming, eventually leaving the stock battery at 12% whilst the Mugen was at a healthy 45%.

Finally we set up the video cameras to record HD video, and following just 15 extra minutes the standard battery gave up the ghost and the phone died, The Mugen phone nonetheless had 30% of it’s juice left, almost precisely what we would expect considering the additional capacity.

Both of the phones were then recharged for a stand by test.

Under pretty light use, along with no WiFi or GPRS and notifications set to hourly, the stock battery pack managed a acceptable 38 hours ahead of the phone went into emergency mode, the Mugen on the other hand held up for an extremely usable 52 hours ahead of emergency mode!

To summarise then, the Mugen is about 30% improved under heavy load and about 45% improved under light load; impressive figures indeed, considering the low price of the battery I’m astonished HTC don’t fit these as standard.

I cannot recommend Mugen batteries highly enough, especially if like me you are continually frustrated by the poor battery life of your Android device.
