It is probably the archetypal first world problem – your smartphone running out of battery after just a couple of hours is a truly awful experience, but those dark days could very well be behind us.
This is thanks to French company Avenir Telecom, which has unveiled a new super smartphone which includes an enormous 18,000mAh battery – enough to power 100 hours of music.
To put that into perspective, whereas you might struggle to get half a day out of your average mobile, the Energizer Power Max P18K Pop can reportedly give users an entire week – or up to 48 hours of continuous video playback.
But according to reports, this is a conservative estimate, as on standby it can last up to 50 days without needing to be plugged in and can even be used as a power bank for other devices – making it the ‘most powerful phone battery in the world’.
In a world where size really does matter, the dark blue lump measures a whopping 18mm in thickness, which according to one tech site is about the size of three-and-a-half iPhones – more reminiscent of the iPod Classic.
