    I currently have the GN2 and am looking to upgrade to the 5, but have the same reservations as everyone else. I travel alot without always easy access to charging ports, so I've always used the (beast) Hyperion extended battery with customized back to support heavy usage while traveling. (It turns the phone into a heavy ton brick, but works great.) I'm a little reluctant about the non-removable battery and SD, but realize that this seems to be the new wave of the future for all tech devices.

    If I upgrade to the 5, I'm looking at this option for the device and wondered if you have any other thoughts, experience, or suggestions for extended battery cases for the GN5?

    Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Battery Extender Case (4200 mAH)

    Thanks in advance for any thoughts or advice.

    I'm personally not a fan of these battery cases, or cases in general. Considering non-removable batteries are the future, I do have a few power banks lying around that never really saw much use unless there was a power outage or something.

    If I were to upgrade to the latest Samsung device today, or any other device for that matter, I'd opt for power banks. They've gone down in price significantly, down in size as well, and are easy to transport. They provide more than enough of a "boost" to your device without having to add significant bulk to your phone.

    I agree with dezymond. Power banks are much more affordable and very convenient. One I have charges my phone to full capacity, is about half the size of my phone and only cost about $20. I also have one that can be solar charged although I have yet to try it on my N5.

    Thanks, I just ordered this. And thanks @Sydman for mentioning it. It's much better than my 5000 mAh power bank. I'll have to give that one to one of my son's.

    The good news about the Note 5 is it's battery is quite good. It also recharges very fast. My battery bank works very well I just wish it wasn't so thick.
