LONG-LAST­ING BAT­TERY POWER

Meet the smart­phone with a 10,000mAh bat­tery.

HWM (Malaysia) - - TELEPORT -

If there's one prob­lem that has per­sisted with smart­phones since the iPhone in 2007, it's that they just don't seem to have the bat­tery life that is able to live past be­yond the two-day mark (never mind the week-long bat­tery power that fea­ture phones were famed for). Think about it: smart­phones th­ese days are be­com­ing al­most as pow­er­ful and ca­pa­ble as the note­book and desk­top PCs, along with the stor­age ca­pac­ity to boot. But apart from that, th­ese smart­phones al­ways seem to be lack­ing the stay­ing power, thanks in no small part to their mea­ger bat­tery.

A Chi­nese com­pany by the name of Ouki­tel has set out to change that by cre­at­ing a smart­phone that is fit­ted with a 10,000mAh bat­tery. With a ca­pac­ity that large, the com­pany has made the claim that the phone is able to stay on for a pe­riod of 15 days (talk about giv­ing the En­er­gizer bunny a run for his money).

While this im­ple­men­ta­tion may sound im­pres­sive, there are some draw­backs to the phone. First, its hard­ware isn't what you would call top notch: it's only fit­ted with a 1GHz Me­di­aTek pro­ces­sor, 2GB of RAM, and an in­ter­nal stor­age ca­pac­ity of only 16GB (upgrad­able via mi­croSD, of course).

The se­cond prob­lem? The phone weighs in at 500g, which is more than dou­ble the weight of many of to­day's flag­ship smart­phones.
