Smartphones these days are getting more and more powerful, but sometimes that power does put a strain on battery life. PowerSkin has been providing a solution to this in the form of smartphone cases that offers shock-absorbing protection and doubles battery life while at it. Today they announced new PowerSkin cases for the Samsung Galaxy S 4G, Samsung Vibrant, and Samsung Galaxy i9000 and i3000.

The PowerSkin is a one-piece case that is impact-resistant and made of soft silicone rubber. It is rechargeable and lightweight with an on/off button and LED battery status light. PowerSkin first launched its battery-boosting smartphone cases last month at the CTIA Show in Orlando and have since been adding to their line up of cases for more and more Android devices. We will be getting one to test on our HTC Thunderbolt very soon and will let you know it it delivers as promised.
PowerSkins are available at T-Mobile stores as well as at most online retailers such as Amazon. PowerSkin pricing for the Samsung Galaxy S 4G, the Samsung Vibrant, HTC HD7, HTC HD2, Samsung Galaxy i9000, and i3000 are all $59.99. Pricing for the HTC myTouch is $49.99.
BONUS: There’s a whole ‘nother big list of devices this little bit’o’magic will be working on right here – and note: we’re getting a rather important one in to test very soon: HTC ThunderBolt. Will it relieve our ever-so-slightly annoying short battery woes? We shall see!

myTouch 4G
Samsung Galaxy i9000
Samsung Galaxy i3000
Samsung Galaxy S 4G
Samsung Vibrant
HTC Evo 4G
