As effective as some of these extended battery cases can be, they often add more bulk to our phones than we want. We’ve entered into an era where the thinner and sleeker phones are, the more sophisticated they look.So why would we intentionally add bulk?
One would think there is no win-win outcome here, it's either we choose to get the optimal practicality with an extended battery case or an attractive, ultra thin enclosure with a stand-alone custom fit case. Well you're in luck, here we bring you a little of both worlds – these are the most ideal custom fitted covers, which make up the best HTC Evo extended battery cases.

Seidio Innocase Extended Rugged Hybrid Case & Holster
This case looks like something they give to military recruits, construction workers or firefighters. It exudes masculinity in everyway and is nothing short of a tough guard and durable enclosure for your HTC Evo. You can count on complete protection of your smartphone and battery with this case installed, it provides two types of fitting in one – a sleek cover for everyday carriage with a fantastic grip made of rubber, and a heavy-duty guard for the demands of the outdoors or rugged professional; this part is made of a hard plastic material.
It is ingeniously crafted to give the best kind of thinness, while providing an immense amount of hardness, to withstand impact shock and surface damage to your smartphone. However, it is somewhat bulkier than other standard HTC Evo cases.
It comes in a package that includes a protective film made of high-grade Japanese film to protect the screen. There is also a patented locking CONVERT holster that fits onto a duty or utility belt up to 2 inches wide. Unfortunately, the case covers access to the kickstand feature and uses rubber plugs to cover the ports on the sides; however, you get full access to the speakers and use of the camera.

This case is conveniently designed to allow instant access to all the functions and ports including the camera lens, speaker and kickstand.
Another great asset to note, the Laza silicone case can be easily cleaned, so you don't have to think twice about shying away from light colors like this featured, classic white model.
