    THL released new phone THL5000, which has a big advantage in battery, the capacity of it is 5000. What a crazy specification, it’s said that the standby time is 1000 hours, if you keen on listening to music, it can last for 125 hours, I think your ear will be explode. Under this capacity, the phone is still only 8.9mm thick. I am so doubt about the real capacity of the phone. It is really 5000mAh, maybe only 4000 or less. There are so many fake batteries on the market now. Have you bought some fake battery before, and what’s your comment on the new battery technology of this THL5000?

    I'm with you on this. I'm skeptical that a 5000 mAh battery is possible in those dimensions, but if it is Thl have set an new standard in battery form.

    what are the capacity of powerbank and phone battery, maybe it is only enough for charging your phone one time.

    Yeah, my dad bought one for around US$5 that claimed to be 15K mAh or something, but it turns out it was more like 4K mAh. My real 14K mAh powerbank can charge my iPhone from 5% to 100% 3 times (if I don't use it while charging)

    Well its probably fake but you have to account for the fact that the isn't 100 percent efficient, it will be 30-50% and the fact that your phone is probably running...
