Get the most out of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ with a battery case. Samsung’s new phones have a beautiful design and huge 5.8 or 6.2-inch screens. As a result, some may be looking to extend battery life. If these phones aren’t lasting long enough, check out our battery cases below.
We’ve already detailed some of the best Galaxy S8+ cases, and official accessories right from Samsung, but some owners want a case with more specific features. More battery. Protect that big screen and double your battery life at the same time.
The new Galaxy S8 and S8+ come with a large 3,000 and 3,500 mAh battery packed inside. However, like previous devices that battery is no longer removable. As a result the best thing for users is a portable battery charger, or a Galaxy S8 battery case.
Last year Samsung debuted their own battery cases for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge with wireless charging built-in. So far though, there has been no indication that the company will be offering that same accessory in 2017 with the Galaxy S8. As a result owners will need to look to popular third party accessory manufacturers.
With a big Infinity screen and tiny bezels, quad-core processor and 4GB of RAM these phones are built to be enjoyed. From watching movies to gaming in HD. You can’t do much when the battery runs out though.
Considering the Galaxy S8 and S8+ were just announced on March 29th there still aren’t too many accessories available. However, in the next few months as millions of buyers pick one up, more will surface. Popular brands like Mophie, Incipio and many more will make cases with a battery built-in. For now though, only a small selection is available. Either way if you’re looking for a Galaxy S8 battery case, we have a few for you to consider below.
i-Blades Smart Case
First up is a unique case from the guys at i-Blades. They actually call it a "smart case" for one of the smartest phones on the planet, the Galaxy S8.
The i-Blade Smart Case for the Galaxy S8 does a lot more than just extend the battery life. It's a traditional thin case that offers decent protection, but then there are four connection points on back that allow modules or "blades" to snap on the back. It isn't extremely pretty, but the blades add a lot of value.
For $99 the i-Blade Battery attachment adds 12 hours of battery life, 64GB of storage (so 128GB total) and a second microSD slot for even more storage. Technically with their case the Galaxy S8 can last nearly two days, and have over 600GB of storage in total. Pretty neat right?
The case also has sensors to monitor air quality around you, and there will be more snap-on blades released at a later date.
