When your phone dies at the most inconvenient of times, you sometimes curse the company that made it. Chinese smartphone maker Oukitel hopes to change the outlook on battery life by rolling out an Android handset with a 10,000mAh battery.
Oukitel’s smartphone, the K10000, boasts a battery that lasts 15 days on a single charge. The name K10000 even originates from the phone’s battery specs. Likewise, Oukitel also has a model called the K6000, named for its 6,000mAh battery, and that offers 10 days of life on a charge.
This method of making smartphones goes against the ideology of bigger companies like Apple – that prefer smaller batteries and thinner devices – to more powerful devices and a potentially clunky-looking phone.
Interested in the 15 day promise? Oukitel’s K10000 is available for pre-order at $240 and is expected to deliver by January 30 or later. It comes installed with Android 5.1 Lollipop.
