Sony Xperia Z, the first and the most reputed member of Sony Xperia Z family, the then flagship of Sony launched during CES 2013 boosted sales of Sony Mobiles a lot. Everything about Sony Xperia Z is great, from its 5″ 1080p full HD screen with Mobile Bravia Engine 2 and it’s water and dust resistance ability. Being an Xperia Z C6602 user, I am totally satisfied with Xperia Z performance overall but one thing that bothers me is the non removable 2330mAh battery inside it. It is certainly not enough for Xperia Z, it’s full HD display withdraws a lot of battery juice while screen is on. Usually you will find your Xperia Z lasting for around 13 hours on 3G talktime, 6-7 hours of video playback and web browsing. So if you are not near the charging slot, you might think twice to play video on it. I don’t watch to many videos on my Xperia Z but certainly browse internet a lot on it. So to keep my Xperia Z display a lot longer I came across “Mugen Power 3000mAh Battery Case for Sony Xperia Z”. If you are looking for some additional battery power for your Xperia Z1, this is the best one we have got.

Mugen Power is the leading name when it comes for battery replacement for your phone.

Charging Test Results

It takes around approx 4-5 hours to charge the Mugen Power 3000mAh Battery Case for Sony Xperia Z from 0 to 100%. It’s a lot time, but you have to bear it.

So how much time will this case back up your Xperia Z ? You must be thinking for now…

  • While charging our Xperia Z from 60-100% battery, it took around 2 Hours 20 minutes and only 25% battery was left in Mugen Power 3000mAh Battery Case for Sony Xperia Z.
  • While charging our phone via AC Adapter it usually takes around 2 Hours 10 minutes to charge it fully and the battery temperature usually lies around 31 degree Celsius but charging via Mugen Power 3000mAh Battery Case, the back of phone gets heated up to 40 degree Celsius while the case discharges from 100 – 50% and after that temperature dropped to 35 degree Celsius.

Update :- Heating issue is solved at the plant 🙂

Pros

  • Durable. It my seem bulky to some users, but 3000mAh case has to be logically.
  • Easy to use.
  • Price worth.
  • Battery back up sufficient if charging from low 10%.

Cons

  • Too much time taken to charge the case.
  • Phone heats up during charging.

Thanks Mugen Power for sending us Mugen Power 3000mAh Battery Case for Sony Xperia Z for review 🙂 Recommended product.

Mugen Power 3000mAh Battery Case is also compatible with Docomo Xperia Z SO-02E version and is of great use if you travel a lot then it is wise to have an alternate power source for your phone and with this case you get some additional hours on your Xperia Z. As now Xperia Z1 battery results have come up and they didn’t impress many users a lot, we are expecting a much better battery power case like this for Xperia Z1 also from Mugen Power.

    Dear Kumar,
    I have just bought this power case for 2 weeks and there are something I want to ask u:
    + This power case’s capacity is 3000mAH, so this mean it can fully charge the cellphone from 0 – 100% and still have some energy,am I right? My case can only provide up to 80% (from around 5%) so I have to return back to HKG for checking!!!
    + My second power case can only last for 1 day without using !!!! I charged my power case untill the red light is off and this evening when I press the back button only 1 blue led lights??
    Waiting for your reply

      hi, thanks for writing to us,

      No it doesn’t mean that it can charge your phone from 0-100% as the case’s output power is very low as compared to AC Adapter’s so it will not charge your phone fully. In our case we were able to charge from 60-100% phone and only 25% power was left on battery case.

      I guess your second case is faulty unit. You must get it replace immediately as it has 365 days warranty. Get it returned as soon as possible. Contact their sale representative.
