does anyone else with phones included larger batteries? i couldn't give a shit about weight or thickness, i'd double both if it means my battery life would double

    If weight and thickness don’t matter get a battery case.

    I had one and could run for a almost a week under regular use.

    And it’s so satisfying to be low, press a small button on the case, and hear that connected to charge sound...

    Does help you in all likelihood, but I keep a 24kmah ravpower brick in my purse.

    @HiFiWiFiSciFi then i can't get a durable case

    @calmyourtities Maybe try what I do?

    I use XVIDA magnet QI chargers and case.

    I have a mount for my desk, by my bed, and in my car and I just snap it onto one of those when I'm not using it.

    Stays pretty full. Case is simple black and low profile while offering reasonable protection.

    Then if I'm on the go or camping I have a solar QI battery pack I can just set it on.

    @SortOfTested does the brick say kmAh on it?

    @RocketSurgeon
    It's says 26800, but it doesn't actually have that capacity

    I bought my phone specifically for its battery. Had 6000 mAh. Lasts me approx 2 days. I guess, you should do the same

    @byteOverBits must be Samsung or Redmi

    Yeah I don't buy phones with less then ~5000mAh. Currently on a Lenovo P2.

    I don't care about the battery life - the 3Ah last three days and that actually is okay.

    But phones really are just too damn thin these days!
    Holding it right™ would be more comfortable if it would be thicker.

    You guys realize these mah capacities on power banks etc dont mean shit without knowing the voltage the battery operates at?

    @ebrithil afaik (almost?) all smartphone batteries work at 3.7V DC

    @saucyatom but the battery bank probably operates at 5 V. The energy that can be stored in a battery is ambiguous if you only know the Ah and not the volts.
