If you are among those, who are lucky enough to have already laid their hands on the Galaxy S6, then you must be knowing that you can’t remove the battery from the phone and put a new battery.
Well, if that’s your problem, then the solution is here; Mophie has brought around battery cases for Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. The battery cases belong to Mophie’s Juice Pack battery line. In case you don’t know, Mophie entered into a partnership with Samsung earlier, and releasing the battery cases is just a part of that partnership. According to sources, Mophie began to work on the battery cases long ago, even before Samsung announced portable power will be added to Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge devices.
A portable battery case can be especially useful for a device like Galaxy S6. Nevertheless, most OEMs are not into mass production of portable battery cases because the majority of handheld devices come with replaceable batteries.
When it comes to official S6 accessories for example, the notable ones are Galaxy S6 Clear View Cover, Galaxy S6 Clear Cover, Galaxy S6 Battery Pack, Galaxy S6 Wireless Charger and Galaxy S6 Headphones. The S6 battery pack comes close to the portable battery cases, but the pack doesn’t offer any option to carry a spare battery for Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge. Hence, a lot of buyers will show interest in the battery cases.
The devices were announced by Samsung on March 1st at this year’s MWC. Total of twenty five features of Galaxy S6 were demonstrated by Samsung. As for Mophie, it has made an announcement earlier, in which it said it will “offer the only battery charging case for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge at launch.” Samsung started a design program that allows its partners to design the specs before the announcement of the devices that Samsung is going to launch; this explains how Mophie has managed to put the release dates for Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge cases ahead of the release of Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
If you need additional reasons to buy any of the cases, then here they are; the cases have Impact Isolation System (IIS) embedded in them so even if the phone slips from the hand and drops on the floor, it won’t incur any damage. It’s the same technology that iPhone 6 has in it and which protects it from accidental drops.
Besides, the cases include a 3300mAh battery. The battery capacity of Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are 2550mAh and 2600mAh respectively, which means the battery cases let users enjoy more than double the battery life of their devices.
That’s not all, the battery cases consist of more functionalities. You can charge the Galaxy S6 and the case at the same time and you can also the phone to your computer while it’ll be put inside the case. When both are being charged, the phone will get the priority. The only limitation of the case is it doesn’t support wireless charging.

The cases are scheduled to release in April 2015, as for the price, the battery cases will cost $99.99. Some carriers are giving discounts to employees. For more information on this, you can visit Mophie’s official website.
