This smartphone can last ten days thanks to its 10,000 mAh battery

A 10,000 mAh spec sounds more like a power bank than a phone battery, but a Chinese phone maker named Oukitel is set to roll out a new 5.5-inch phablet with a 10,000 mAh battery that will last up to ten days under normal use.

Oukitel has named the phone K10000 in honour of the magnificent battery it contains. While we're still not aware of how long it takes to fully charge the battery and what does Oukitel mean when it says 'normal use,' we've had a glimpse of the other specifications that reside within K10000.


K10000 will be powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6735 processor which will generate a speed of 1GHz. Featuring a 5.5-inch HD display, the phone will run Android 5.1 Lollipop OS and will contain 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 13MP and 5MP cameras and 4G support.

Smartphone battery that last a week? Very soon, say scientists

So if you find yourself lost with your Oukitel K10000 in a deep jungle on your next safari, you wouldn't need to worry much about how long the phone will last. The battery power should be enough to let you find your way to the nearest village.

Oukitel has done monster batteries before but never before has it developed a battery this large. Recently, the phone maker unveiled the K4000 which features, you're right, a 4,000 mAh battery and can last up to seven days on a single charge.

Around the same time last month, Huawei also unveiled a new Lithium ion battery that charges up to 48 per cent in just five minutes, ten times faster than an average phone battery. As of now, the ruling champion is Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 which Qualcomm claims can make a smartphone battery charge up to 60 per cent in thirty minutes. Qualcomm adds that a usual charging method will fill up just 12 per cent in the same time period.
