Incipio offGrid case

An additional 10.5 hours of talk time and some rugged protection all in one

For those who need a little extra juice and don't want to carry around separate batteries to swap in-and-out, Incipio has just released a quite large 3100mAh battery case for the Galaxy S4. The aptly-named "offGrid" battery case is a two-part ordeal that consists of a back plate and a rubber bumper that come together around the phone, which provide both protection and a quoted 10.5 hours extra talk time when fully charged. The case slits into the Galaxy S4's USB port on the bottom, and then has its own USB port for charging, along with an LED battery status indicator on the front.

Just like the other battery cases we've seen from other case manufacturers, you're certainly going to feel the extra bulk of this case. But for those who need the extra battery life and protection, it's a worthy tradeoff. The Incipio offGrid battery case has just gone up for pre-order with an estimated ship date of 3 weeks, and rings up at $89.99. You can see a few more pictures of the case after the break, or head to Incipio's site to pre-order now from the source link below.

Incipio announces Galaxy S4 3100mAh battery case

I'm getting a ZeroLemon for my LG G Pro.

Never owned one before, only read about them and seen them in person.

I haven't heard from one person who had anything bad to say. Everyone I've come across says it's the best extended battery.

I have (had?) one for my Galaxy Nexus... I have a GS4 now, but whatever. Their batteries are NOT well made. It's basically three batteries taped and (hopefully) wired together. For my G-Nex, the fit was sloppy at best and, to be honest, they don't give you a real battery cover. They give you a TPU case that "covers" the battery "assembly" and the edges of the phone. If you need bonkers battery, then go for it. Just be aware that the fit is TERRIBLE. It works fine, for sure, and you'll get ridiculous battery life... however, it looks and feels awful.

I was aware of the TPU skin it comes with, and have considered the pros and cons.

The pros heavily outweigh the cons for me. Like you said, I need bonkers battery life and I hate switching out batteries.

The look, well, I don't really care about it. Function over form I say. The feel, well, again, I might not be able to slip it into my dress pants pocket, but then again, I couldn't do that with the regular size battery (we are talking about the LG G Pro here). I usually carry my phone in my hand anyway, or place it on the desk/table when I sit down.

I'm willing to put up with these small sacrifices considering people reporting theri ZeroLemons normally lasting as long as 3 days before needing to recharge.

I have one of these for my S3 (albeit 2000mAh), and really like it. So much thinner than the Morphie. I was able to get it for $45 on Amazon.

This is terrible. The ZeroLemon 3000mah fits in the existing battery door, and you get two of them + a charger for $20. Only a complete idiot would pay $90 for this case and 3100mah battery.
