The Samsung Galaxy S6 does not let users remove the battery and replace it like earlier Galaxy devices, which means many potential buyers are already interested in the Mophie Galaxy S6 battery case and the Mophie Galaxy S6 Edge battery case. As part of a partnership with Samsung, Mophie worked on a new Galaxy S6 Mophie case option before the announcement that will add portable power to the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
Many companies make portable battery cases and one of the official Samsung Galaxy S6 accessories is a Galaxy S6 battery pack, but with no option to carry a spare Galaxy S6 battery in your backpack or purse a Galaxy S6 battery case is sure to be on the shopping lists of many Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge buyers this spring.
Samsung announced the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge on Sunday March 1st at MWC 2015, where the company demonstrated some of the 25 Galaxy S6 features that you will love and outlined the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge differences.

Mophie Galaxy S6 Details
This Mophie Galaxy S6 case is officially the Juice Pack for Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. This includes a 3,300mAh battery that will let users get 100% more battery life than the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge alone.
Mophie includes an Impact Isolation System in the Mophie Galaxy S6 case. This can protect the phone from drops and it is the same technology that saved our iPhone 6 from a chest-high drop to a sidewalk. This internal suspension system helps keep the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge safe from drops.
You can plug in and charge the Mophie case and the Galaxy S6, plus you can sync it to your computer while in the case. The Galaxy S6 will charge first and then the case so the phone gets the priority. You can still use Quick Charge that can top off the Galaxy S6 battery fast when plugged in. It’s not clear fi Wireless charging will work with this case on, but it definitely will not charge the Mophie case. Users can turn the battery power on and off with a switch on the back.
The Mophie Galaxy S6 case includes a mute switch, according to the press release, but we don’t know where this is located. Based on a photo from Android Headlines users can also expect a charging dock that works with the Galaxy S6 Mophie case.
