Android devices are known for being power hogs, as are most smartphones.  Then fold in 4G connectivity and you’re pretty much screwed.  But if you’re willing to succumb to some added bulk wrapping around your handset, you could enjoy twice the battery life than you’re normally use to.

Powerskin’s silicone case with built-in battery is compatible with Samsung Galaxy S 4G, Vibrant, Samsung Galaxy i9000& i9003, HTC HD7, HTC HD2 and HTC myTouch 4G.  Pricing ranges from $49.99 – $59.99 depending on your phones model, but PowerSkin promises a two fold in battery life with LED status lights and an eco friendly tough case that will protect your precious handset from dings and bruises.

Head over to Amazon today if your down for the count.
