In this buying guide we’ll explain the benefits of a Galaxy Note 8 battery case and share a list of the best cases available. These will keep your phone safe and nearly double its battery life at the same time.
With such a big screen and glass covering the front and the back, the Note 8 is somewhat fragile. That’s why we recommend getting a good case. While you’re at it, get one that improves battery life.
There are a few different choices for a battery case, from cheap no-name brands that may not last as long as advertised, to quality cases from brands we know and trust. Some cost as little as $39 although you’ll need to spend a little more to get one from a reputable brand.
The Galaxy Note 8 has a massive 6.3-inch Quad-HD display, but only a 3,300 mAh battery. That’s smaller than the companies own Galaxy S8+. And while it’s enough for some, battery life is one of the biggest complaints we continue to receive. Here are some tips to improve battery life, then keep reading for more information about cases.
Last year Samsung debuted their own battery cases for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge with wireless charging built-in. Sadly, that isn’t an option for the Galaxy S8 or the new Note 8. As a result, owners will need to look to popular third-party accessory manufacturers.
And since the battery isn’t removable, the next best thing for users is a portable charger pack or a Galaxy Note 8 battery case.
Buying a cheap $39 battery case is better than nothing, and will keep your phone safe while offering 160% more battery life. That’s cheaper than replacing a broken screen for $200+, and you’ll enjoy your phone more too. Popular options like Mophie have battery cases with wireless charging built-in too, so you won’t lose features. However, their Note 8 battery case isn’t available yet but is coming soon.
These cases can make the Galaxy Note 8 easily last 2-3 days on a single charge, or longer. Perfect for going on vacation, business users, or those constantly on the go. Even if you don’t use it daily, a battery case is a good accessory to have when you need it.
With that all said, these are the best Galaxy Note 8 battery cases available so far. We’ll update this slideshow with more options as they become available. Get one today and enjoy your phone without worrying about finding a wall outlet.
ZeroLemon 10,000 mAh Note 8 Case
If you're one of the few that absolutely must have amazing battery life, this is it. ZeroLemon is a brand almost any battery case fan knows and knows well. They often offer the biggest battery cases on the market, and the Note 8 is no exception.
And while ZeroLemon does sell a 5,000 mAh battery case, it's the 10,000 mAh one we want to highlight. The Note 8 has a small 3,300 mAh battery built-in. Buying this case completely triples battery life. Imagine charging your phone once every 3-5 days, or less.
The company uses a strong polycarbonate shell for durability along with a soft TPU outer shell for drop protection. Then, they added four LED's on the back for battery status information.
Our favorite part though is the ZeroLemon case offers simultaneous charging (both the case and phone at the same time) and data passthrough. This is important because cheaper battery cases don't offer either of those. You can't transfer data or music and photos without taking the case off, and most only charge the case, or the case first and then the phone.
Finally, this case routes sound from the bottom speaker into the frame and delivers front-facing speakers. Reviews are mixed when talking about the overall quality, but try one yourself today.
