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 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.
