From a novelty to a norm, wireless charging is increasingly becoming a popular feature especially with the consistent push from Nokia and innovative accessories to complement them.

After Nokia introduced the DT-900 wireless charging plate and the Fatboy wireless charging pillow with the launch of the Nokia Lumia 920, their first Qi-compatible Windows Phone device, several brands have followed up with their variants of wireless chargers like the Mugenizer N11 I wrote about last week. In this post, let’s take a look at wireless charges from Mugen Power, Tylt, and Brando that I’ve been trying out since a while.

While portable chargers or power banks are ubiquitous among smartphone users now, there’s a new range of such devices which bring the advantage of wireless charging, a feature trend that is gaining popularity especially in Windows Phones in last 18 months.

These are essentially the portable power packs that you can carry around, but without the need for wires. When you want to charge your phone, you just lay it flat on the brick. While the Nokia Lumia 920, 928, and 1520 (non-AT&T models) can charge natively, the Lumia 720, 820, 925, and 1020 can use optional shells to enable the Qi feature.

Few months back, Nokia introduced DC-50, a $99 wireless portable charger that packs 2400 mAh battery. It was followed by the announcement of a similar product by Hong Kong-based Mugen Power. I’ve been using the Mugenizer N11 portable wireless charger since a few weeks, and it is one of the two chargers, the other being a Nokia DC-18, I carry with me when I head out.

A few months back I reviewed the Brando Power Jacket case for the Nokia Lumia 920. A case with a built-in battery, it could potentially double the battery life of the Lumia 920 – a dream for gamers. But the Brando case didn’t perform all that well as a charger, limiting its usefulness.

Enter Mugen Power, makers of many external batteries and cases. At long last, Mugen now offers an extended battery case for the Nokia’s original flagship Windows Phone 8 handset. The Mugen Power Battery Case for Lumia 920 comes in black or white, as well as two different battery capacities: 3000 mAh and 4700 mAh. The 4700mAh model offers 2.35x extra power on top of the 920’s built in battery. I’ve spent the last few weeks using that version as my case in order to bring you this detailed review.

Portable chargers are becoming more and more popular, especially with Windows Phones. Nokia is pushing forward with wireless charging and its own family of chargers that can be carried along for the ride. The Lumia 1020 also has a portable charger inside its camera grip accessory. Now Mugen Power will be unleashing a 4800mAh wireless portable charger, and it supports the Qi standard.

If you're just not getting enough battery life out of your Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone, Mugen Power may have a solution for you with their 3000mAh and 4700mAh battery cases.

Mugen Power offers a wide assortment of extended batteries, including power sources for the Samsung ATIV-S and the Nokia Lumia 820.  We previously reported that Mugen Power was researching an extended power source for the Lumia 920 and now it looks like the battery will be available October 2nd.

Mugen Power is reported to be working on external casing for Windows Phones. Said cases would wrap around the handset to provide extra battery juice in emergencies when a power outlet is nowhere to be found. A jacket is to be produced for the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X, while a different solution is planned for the Lumia 820 (since it sports interchangeable covers).

We know what you're thinking; "What?!". We were thinking the exact same thing. Mugen Power is selling an extended HTC Titan battery that has a whopping capacity of 3600mAh. To put this into perspective (as the above chart does so gracefully), the stock battery which comes with the handset is 1600mAh which has decent performance as is.  Should you require that extra juice, or spend extended periods of time finding a charger, this 3600mAh upgrade should interest you.

The only issue is that this will add some considerable weight and a slight increase in width with the included extended battery door/back cover. If you require a battery that lasts up to 2.25 times (according to Mugen) longer than stock, this disadvantage can be overlooked with over 50% increase in performance. Should you not be interested in adding size and weight to your Titan, the 1950mAh battery upgrade (also from Mugen) could be the right choice and will use your Titan's existing battery cover.

Note that this product is currently out of stock and if orders are put through now, delivery will be on February 3rd. The purchase will set you back $98.95.
