Oukitel K10000

Fed up with having to charge your smartphone up every day? Well Oukitel’s new K10000 smartphone boasts a humongous 10,000mAh battery, which the company boasts is enough to last 10 to 15 days of normal use on a single charge. That’s quite the claim.

Despite the colossal battery, the Oukitel K10000 is otherwise a rather low-end smartphone. It features a 720p 5.5-inch display, a 64-bit 1GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6735 SoC and 2GB of RAM, which is basic enough that it actually should help to keep power consumption much lower than flagship phones. There’s also 16GB of internal storage, an 8 megapixel rear camera, 2 megapixel front camera and 4G LTE support on the 800/1800/2100/2600MHz bands.

One other neat feature of the K10000 is that it comes with reverse charging, meaning that you can re-power up your other gadgets from this phone’s huge battery. There’s also dual SIM or microSD card support, 9V/2A quick charging, and screen gesture shortcuts and unlocking.

Oukitel K10000 back

Oukitel is a Chinese smartphone manufacturer that also unveiled its 6,000mAh battery powered K6000 smartphone in October and its K4000 handset back in September this year, which promised 3 days of use on a single charge.

The Oukitel K10000 is available to pre-order, presumably on import, from US retailer Gearbest. The price is set at a very modest $239.99, but it won’t ship out until January 2nd 2016.

    The added thickness doesn’t seem too excessive. Can’t tell if that’s needed thickness or just added fluff because of the rugged design.

    I’d like even a 5,000 mAh battery in my phone

    • Chris

      I can see us having that in at least a couple of years…

      • ASYOUTHIA

        That’s AFTER their new battery technology ends up being a disaster

        • Kig3Eo

          10000mah battery+ smartphone in 9mm thickness,(gearbest source) there is something wrong here obviously… Or other company were dumb to put 2100mah in 6mm…

          • EasyCare

            Definitely something’s wrong here. Even a 10,000 mAh power bank, which mostly comprises battery cells, are thicker than this.

          • Leandro Brandão

            now i want to see a teardown of this device to see the real size of the battery.

    • Vady

      I got a 4,000 one, the THL 4000.
      I charge it once in 2 or 3 days. (thats while gaming)

      • ASYOUTHIA

        You should try the 10000 one

        • Vady

          Don’t have money for that :D

          • ASYOUTHIA

            Ask Santa ?

    Guys, it’s a 10 000 mAh rugged battery pack built in with a backup / secondary phone worth over $100.
    “it comes with reverse charging, meaning that you can re-power up your other gadgets from this phone’s huge battery”

    • EasyCare

      There’s plenty of phone that can do reverse charging. This thing is not new.

      • Tommy Crosby

        No, but those smartphone (like the ones made by Blu) are usually 4000 or 5000mAh and cost between $150 and $200 with usually worst specs (other than the SoC probably underclocked low 1GHz speed).

        Edit: the Blu Energy X Plus was a similar phone released last summer have a quad 1.3GHz A7/Mali 400 SoC, 1GB RAM and 3G+ with a 5000mAh for $139 whereas this one have Quad 1GHz A53 64Bit/Mali 720 Soc, 2GB RAM and LTE, twice the battery and metal case for $100 extra.

    4G LTE support on the 800/1800/2100/2600MHz bands – not in the US it wont.

    • RH

      Yep, no USA support, forget it. The problem with the flood of phones trying to get into the USA market, is thanks to the stranglehold of the two biggy players, Verizon & AT&T, with the secondary ones, T-Mobile & Sprint, the general public (not known to be SMART or tech savy), think that you must purchase your phone through the carrier, which they push only iPhones, Samsung & HTC.
      Now that the stupid 2 year contract/ “so called” discount phone things are starting to disappear, SOMEONE needs to really start marketing phones to the USA at a discount, so more and more manufacturers will start shipping compatible phones to us. Otherwise we’ll be stuck with overpriced, locked, bloated crap, that we have now.

      • Me

        If they really want to be in the US market then they need to make their phones support the lte frequencies instead of just the 2g and 3 g frequencies

  • Javid Nazim Mammadov

    No removable back? :3

  • Lindle

    A lot of people don’t realize that a lot of phones have reverse charging.y friends S4 was able to do it and so did my nexus 10

  • ichuck7

    I wish more well known companies like Samsung, etc could build premium phones with Max batteries like this. Samsung tried experimenting with a large screen phone with the original note and that obviously paid off well for them.

  • I’d buy this even if it’s bulky or a little heavy.

  • Android Developer

    Is it for real? And how come some websites show a different dimensions of the device? Some say it’s 1.4 cm thick instead of 1.9 cm.

  • Matt Foot

    Forgot to add “and tacky pre-Lollipop hardware buttons.”

  • Fianna Hill

    Welll that can be used as a power band? Get email from antelife $199.99 with coupon :K10000

  • Марк Соколовский

    I’m getting this exact phone, with my tax return. I currently have a Vkworld VK6050, which has the same specs and half as much ram, and it does everything I need to do, better than a low end phone would. Heavy use gets me through 2 days, light use gets me through about 3-3.5. I’m excited for this Oukitel phone. The sdcard slot seems solid, and the design looks gorgeous.

  • bong

    thickness is 14mm to be correct. Some sites are giving wrong information of 9mm sumthing.

  • Rick Sin

    Oukitel Crap phones!

  • Lennald

    I have bought this phone months ago, with $199.99. But now it only needs $152.99. Hope I didn’t buy it so earlier.
