Over the last few months, there have been several expanded batteries launch for Android smartphones. These batteries will give the phones they fit about twice the run time with the downside of making the device much fatter and ensuring no cases will fit. PowerSkin has the solution for the person looking for more run time from the HTC Amaze 4G and not wanting a fat battery.

PowerSkin has a new power case for the smartphone that has an extra 1500mAh of power inside. The outside of the case is made from silicone so it will help protect the device if you drop it. The extra juice will help the smartphone by adding up to 410 more minutes of talk. It will also add more time for your video watching and gaming.

I am sure this case will add bulk to the Amaze 4G as a larger battery would. However, at least with the case you can take it off if you want to have a thinner device for some reason. The case will hit T-Mobile stores next week for $69.99. You can check out our review of the HTC Amaze 4G.

  • So, I got one of these for my thunderbolt, and I’ve gotta say, I was not impressed. I swear my battery life was actually _worse_ with it since the phone thought it was plugged in all the time and kinda threw power management out the window. It was nice that I was able to use the kickstand while plugged in, but that wasn’t enough to save it. I ended up getting an OEM extended battery, and it has worked out much better.

    I’ve had my powerskin 6months and it is already dead. My son is on his 2nd skin this year. Both have died. He has given up on it.

    Nice idea but need to make a product that will last longer for the $40.

    On my third powerskin for my T-Mobile HTC Amaze 4G.  Seems that about every 30-40 days it will no longer take a charge.  T-Mobile keeps replacing it but its very frustrating.  Any ideas?

      I have been through 2 skins already and I am now trying to decide if I want to go through it all again.  I love it when it works since I go though a lot of data and power.  Now I feel like I have to have a charger in every room and car just to make it through the day.  I think this proves you can’t have everything

    This thing died after 4 months, only used it about 10-15 times. Bought it through T mobile and they do not support it in any way.
