Samsung Galaxy S4
13th February 2016
Loving my S4 again.
I love my mobile phone. I am lost without it. We are talking serious withdrawals when the battery is dead. Unfortunately, as great as my Galaxy S4 is the battery life is HORRIBLE! With just using the phone feature I'm lucky to last 5 hours.
Adding the PowerSkin Extended Battery Case made specifically for the S4, has not only made my battery last all day (and I do mean ALL DAY) but it protects my phone with the silicone case. Unfortunately, my phone has been dropped several times; yes, I'm blaming the 4-year-old. I'm pleased to report that my phone has survived unscathed; no dents, scratches or cracks.
The PowerSkin Extended Battery Case feels great in my hand. The silicone outer layer is not just soft but durable too.
The PowerSkin has a 1600mAh integrated battery. The case is longer than the Samsung Galaxy S4 phone itself because the battery is built-in to the case. Adding the PowerSkin gives me an additional four and half hours of talk time. Not just the extra talk time, but days where I don't use my phone much I have an additional 100 HOURS of standby time. This is truly a smart case. The smart case uses my Galaxy S4 battery first, ones that is depleted I can switch over to my case battery. No having to plug it in anywhere for power.
Once you insert your phone into the charged case there are 4 LED status lights that will light up when you push the button, this will let you know how much battery is left in the case. What an awesome feature that is. The LED lights on the case will also flash when the cash is being charged. I want to note that the case doesn't include a USB cable. You will need a micro USB cable to charge your case.
The case also looks nice in the shiny black, the cut out don't obscure the camera window and doesn't interfere with the control buttons. The case also doesn't add any bulk to the phone, just a little added length.
Adding the PowerSkin to my S4 has me loving my phone again.

Soft silicone outer layer for a more comfortable feel and durable protection
Unlike other battery cases, the PowerSkin for Samsung Galaxy S4 is designed with form and function on equal footing. The soft outer layer is made from a durable silicone rubber to provide a comfortable hold and extra grip, as well as offering premium protection against shocks, drops and knocks.
1500mAh integrated battery gives you up to 62% more power from your phone
Built-in to the case is a 1600mAh battery. This provides up to 260 mins of talk time or 100 hours of standby, which when coupled with the Samsung Galaxy S4's own battery provides even more power.
LED battery status lights let you know current charge capacity at a glance
On the back of the case are a series of four LED status indicators that light up at the push of a button to tell you the current charge left in the extended battery case. They also flash to indicate when the case is being charged via micro USB cable or through a mains/car USB charger (not included).
Smart battery technology ensures safe charging of your phone
Using the patented XPAL Power battery technology, this case will last for thousands of recharge cycles without noticeable loss in capacity. The smart battery technology knows the charge the phone first and the case second, so if you just need a quick boost of power before going out, you don't have to wait for the phone to be charged through the case.
Made for Samsung Galaxy S4
This extended battery case is designed to be used with the Samsung Galaxy S4 mobile phone, so will be a perfect fit with flawless compatibility. There is an optically engineered camera lens window on the back that will not interfere with the camera while eliminating flash glare from the skin's surface. All buttons are accessible through the case, so you don't lose any functionality by keeping your smartphone in the PowerSkin. The PowerSkin is also designed to work with the NFC capabilities in the phone, so you can use NFC technology whilst the case is attached.
