Energizer’s Power Max P18K Pop smartphone has a 18000mAh battery

Smartphone makers have officially lost their minds this year. Foldable devices, 5G support, crazy camera arrays. You name it, we’ve seen it at MWC 2019.

Oh, big batteries, you ask? We’ve got that too thanks to Energizer.

Everyone’s favourite battery maker Energizer has made a phone with a large battery. A very large battery. 18 000mAh to be exact.

To put this into perspective, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus has a 4100mAh battery. The Huawei Mate 20 Pro has a 4200mAh battery. And the iPhone XS Max has a 3174mAh battery.

With that large cell there is a trade off in weight and size. The Power Max P18K Pop is 18mm thick, but that does come with a quoted standby time of 50 days. For those who use their phones like actual humans though, the device can power you through 200 hours of video on a single charge.

Other specs aren’t what we’d all extraordinary. Granted, there’s a 128GB wad of internal storage, and you are getting a Mediatek Helio P70 chipset with 6GB of RAM, but the phone lacks a headphone jack and IP water and dust resistance.

Still, there is a 6.2 inch IPS display with 2280×1080 resolution, Bluetooth 5.0 LE support, 802.11ac WiFi support, and you can use this giant smartphone as a powerbank to charge other devices too.

There’s also a triple rear camera array, with one 12MP, one 5MP and one 2MP depth sensor. And up front, there’s a dual selfie camera array of 16MP and 2MP that rise from a pop-up.

As for the price, Energizer hasn’t said much but expect the device to cause a massive dent in your pocket if not your wallet later this year.
