When battery manufacturers make smartphones…

This isn’t really what I had in mind when I was complaining about how my phone’s battery didn’t last long enough, but I guess Energizer’s product does count as a solution to the smartphone’s battery problem.

This is the Energizer Power Max P18K Pop. I wouldn’t go so far as to call it a smartphone, but it certainly has smartphone-like features. The Energizer Power Max P18K Pop, according to the guys at The Verge, is a massive 18,000 mAh battery with a smartphone attached to it. Measuring at a staggering 18mm thick, the Power Max P18K Pop is the equivalent of 3.5 iPhones making it the phone with the world’s biggest battery.

The Power Max P18K Pop comes with three rear cameras and sports a hidden sliding module with two front-facing cameras, like last year’s Vivo Apex smartphone. This means the Power Max P18K Pop’s 6.2-inch LCD display on the front is uniquely pleasing to look at. It has no notch, and sports minimal bezels… a concept that seems to be slightly defeated when your phone is as thick as a power bank. The phone also sports a MediaTek processor, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, runs Android Pie, and comes with 48 hours of CONTINUOUS usage, courtesy its gargantuan battery. The battery also takes a whopping 8 hours to charge fully, but I doubt you’d ever reach 0% battery unless you actually tried, given the phone could last practically through the week with moderated usage.

The Energizer Power Max P18K Pop launches this summer, and it certainly is the thicc-est phone I’ve ever seen… but I guess there are people out there who like themselves a phone with a big batt-ery. See what I did there?
