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).
The company published a post on its Italy Facebook page asking those who are subscribed, "Do you have or plan to buy a Nokia Lumia 920, HTC 8X, 4 Nexus, Sony Xperia Z? Stay tuned, we will soon have news for you" (rough translation). Windows Phone Italy got in touch with Mugen to query exactly what the company was hinting at regarding Windows Phones. They were provided information on external enclosures (jackets) for the smartphones mentioned in the quote.
The above image shows just what Mugen could be bringing to the platform. Such cases are available for the HTC One X family of devices, which sport non-removable batteries. The company admits that while the cases (or jackets) will add extra weight and considerable size to the smartphone, the benefits of that extra spark of charge to the on-board battery is more than worth it. The case can be removed when not needed - it's pretty much an emergency charger, if you will.
As well as the jackets for the Lumia 920 and 8X, Mugen will also bring to the table an extended battery for the Lumia 820 (as mentioned above). This will replace the removable battery (1650mAh) supplied by Nokia. It's not known if the new battery will add weight and size to the device, requiring a new shell that can contain such an upgrade. Hopefully it'll be the case where the new battery will leave no footprint.
Should you be running through the battery quicker than desired, be sure to keep an eye out for upcoming battery extension jackets. This isn't the first time Mugen has supported Windows Phone, we previously looked at a HTC TITAN replacement battery.
