Evo 4G life boosted by Mugen battery
Japan's Mugen Power Batteries has released one of he largest ever extended batteries for the HTC Evo 4G. The HLI-A9292XL battery has a capacity of 3,200mAh, or more than double the Evo 4G's 1,500mAh unit. The Evo 4G has been criticized for its short battery life, but the new pack potentially solves the problem almost immediately.
The company released an 1,800mAh battery for the handset in June, though it only provided a 20 percent boost over the stock version. The new battery does add 20mm to the thickness of the Evo 4G handset, however.
The new, 3,200mAh battery will ship on August 13, priced at $97.
