LONG-LASTING BATTERY POWER
Meet the smartphone with a 10,000mAh battery.
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.
