There is one major drawback about modern day smartphones – their batteries tend to run out, and real fast, too. Well, it seems that there is a solution to every problem, and PowerSkin offers their Skin for the HTC Amaze 4G which is said to deliver another 1,500mAh worth of battery life that has been incorporated into its smooth silicone exterior.

Needless to say, the additional battery pack would mean a bulkier make up of the peripheral, but I guess power users and those who place greater emphasis on battery life would be willing to overlook that bit. Capable of offering up to 410 minutes worth of talk time, the skin is also eco-friendly being made out of 100% recycled materials. Of course, the battery itself is not recyclable, but that is understandable.

Available in T-Mobile stores from next week onwards for $69.99 a pop, you can also pick it up from as well as the company’s very own product page. How much of a balance are you willing to take when it comes to power and performance?
