    Default Extended Battery Case

    So I was looking for an extended battery case (like the mophie cases for iPhone) for the EVOLTE, and found this from Seidio...



    Does anyone have any experience with this case, or know of any other battery cases for the phone?

    I was wondering the same thing. I would like an extended case with battery. Seidio are good products, but I have only read a few reviews on this product.

    Crazy, I was searching around on the net for one today too. The Seidio was the only one I found.

    I didnt think this was possible since the evo lte doesnt have a removal battery. I will wait for more comments before making a move.

    Ok. I ordered the case from Amazon and got it today. Didn't add much bulk to the phone. Typical Seidio case. I charged it for about two hours, which is less than recommended. So far it seems to charge pretty well. I'm going to charge it to the recommended level tonight, and then I'll report back with a more objective review later.

    The Evo LTE does have a removable battery. But it takes several minutes and the use of a screwdriver. It doesn't have a quick-swap battery.

    The extended external battery case is not a replacement battery, it is a case that contains a second, "external" battery. This extra battery can then charge the Evo's battery through an included USB connector. A new USB socket is provided on the case for data and charging both the case's battery and the Evo's battery with a wall charger or computer connection.

    I noticed the case stuck out at the charger jack. Is that the way it really is?

    Yep. It has to plug into the usb port on the phone. Seems like they could have done it differently with a lower profile, but I have not touch/used the case, so I don't know the exact design challenges involved.

    I see. Thanks for correcting me on that.

    ???

    The Evo LTE just came out 9 months ago. The Seidio case was released 2.25 months ago, which was just 6.75 months after the Evo LTE was released. I think it would be unusual to see any custom product from Seidio come out for a phone less than 6 months old.

    Ok, I've had the extended battery case for about a week now. It does what it's supposed to do, which is charge the phone while in use. Be advised however, that it's does add weight and bulk to the phone. It especially seems to feel like a small brick in my hand. But it does the job pretty well. It went from about 48% to 100% in about three hours. While this may seem to be a while, I was using the phone during the charge. Overall, this is a descent product. Not the best from Seidio, but it serves it's purpose.
    It's not the most stylish case on the market, but if you're looking for something to protect and charge your EVO LTE, Seidio has the only product out there at this time.
