Aftermarket HTC EVO 3500mAh extended battery gets silicone case option

Evo-silicone-case-extended

One of the drawbacks to buying an extended battery for your HTC EVO 4G is that there are hardly any cases for them. These batteries require a replacement back cover to accommodate their extra thickness and not all companies use the same one (e.g., Seidio, Mugen Power, and Sprint's battery doors are all different).

Third-party case manufacturers obviously don't design special cases for each one, so users are often forced to choose between having an EVO with more runtime or having an EVO with a case. There are cases for Seidio's 3500mAh Innocell battery (the Innocase Extended and Innocase Extended Rugged), sure, but that's only because Seidio makes them. And not everyone has/wants an Innocell, especially when there are other 3500mAh batteries out there that are much less expensive.

Such batteries may be from companies most people have never heard of, but they're really cheap, they could be of decent quality, and a lot of them use the same battery door (the one you see here, here, and here). And as it turns out, there are actually red and black silicone skins available for these extended battery/cover combos too.

They're branded by Laza, who sells their own 3500mAh EVO battery with back covers in both black and white, and are available for $14.99 each.

  • I’m strongly considering getting not only this case but the extended battery and backing, but i need a recommendation for an external charger… Any suggestions?

    I have the charger, works great with both slim and extended batteries. Im pretty sure they last longer now

  • Finally. I had to stretch the living hell out of my OtterBox case, and STILL couldn’t get 100% full protection with it, only got about 95%. I surprised that these aren’t that popular, but yet, the extended batteries are not hard to find whatsoever. Thanks for sharing this post.

    I purchased this case in black from Laza two weeks ago and when I first got it, it was super great but now it has stretched so bad it hardly fits the phone anymore. Just wanted to let everyone know, this is a good case if you only need the case for like two weeks or so, after that the case is worthless.

    Also, I forgot to mention, If anyone knows of another case like this from another manufacture let me know I’m willing to try anything at this point the LAZA case itself is going to eventually make the phone slip out of my hand because of its looseness

  • Thanks for posting this. I bought it and it’s really great! Had mine for a week and still as firm as the day I got it. Hopefully it stays that way.

  • Gorilla Gadgets makes a hard case to fit the extended battery.
