With today’s massive quad or even octa-core CPUs and 1080p displays, it doesn’t take long to drain a battery if you use your phone regularly for tasks like browsing the web, gaming and watching videos. That’s why it is a wise move to have some sort of battery charger pack if you’re the kind of person that finds themselves away from the wall charger for long stretches of time.

Although there’s a countless number of choices out there, if you are a Samsung fan, you might want to turn your attention to Sammy’s new 6,000 mAh battery pack accessory. Clad in the same faux-leather we know and love from the most recent members of the Galaxy Note series, the battery pack is capable of charging the Galaxy S5 up to two times and retails for about $60.

The battery pack is also rather compact at 74x140x11mm, and it weighs in at 173 grams. The downside? Right now, the battery pack is only available in India. Of course it’s only a matter of time before the accessory arrives to other markets including Europe and the United States, hopefully sooner rather than later. We’ll be sure to update the post as soon as we learn more about Samsung’s plans for the accessory.

If it does come to your region for around the $60 mark, would you be interested in picking one up? Or do you feel that’s way to high when compared to 3rd-party alternatives?
