Energizer to unveil new phone with a massive 18000mAh battery

Energizer to unveil new phone with a massive 18000mAh battery
Energizer is planning on showing off 26 new smartphone models at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) to be held in Barcelona later this month. According to GSMArena (via 9to5Google), the company will be debuting a new line called Energizer Ultimate that will feature six premium handsets including a foldable model; some of the devices in this range will sport a pop up camera.

One of the new phones in the Ultimate line will be the Energizer Ultimate U620S Pop. The model features a 6.2-inch FHD+ resolution screen and is powered by a MediaTek Helio P70 chipset. 6GB of RAM is inside along with 128GB of storage. On back is a triple-sensor setup with a 16MP primary camera, 5MP primary camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The fingerprint scanner is embedded in the power button, and a 3200mAh battery keeps the lights on.

The largest screened Energizer model that will be displayed at MWC is the Ultimate U650S. This unit carries a 6.5-inch display (only HD+ resolution, though) and the Helio P22 SoC under the hood. 4GB of RAM is included and there is 128GB of internal storage inside. A 3500mAh battery powers this device.

As you might expect from a battery manufacturer, one new phone is expected to feature a whopping 18000mAh capacity battery inside. During last year's MWC show, the company unveiled the Energizer Power Max P16K Pro, which carries a 16000mAh battery. Only a limited number of units were produced, and Energizer says that it did make some sales of the handset.

Thus far, Energizer phones have had a very limited distribution and were not marketed in the U.S. If Energizer plans on capitalizing on its well known brand name to sell its phones in the states, we're sure to hear something at MWC. The trade show runs from February 25th-28th.

They should choose sd instead of MediaTek

There's nothing wrong with Mediatek. They may not be as good as many Snapdragons but they're very reliable.

What do you mean by reliability? You say that cpu’s on phones breaks often? :) I say that MT chips are having microlags always... even higher clocked cpus from MT performs worst than SD lower grade cpus, so here is only cost cutting part.

I've used Mediatek on many devices and the Lenovo tablet I'm typing this on has a Mediatek chip. No issues in 3 years and much better than the SD801 that was in my previous tablet. I've already said they're not as good as the equivalent SD chips so I don't know why you're moaning.

I think he meant code, GPL compliance and dev support that's notoriously far more lacking with MediaTek inside phones, rather than the issue of performance stats.

Good point but what percentage of buyers even know what those are? I don't even bother to root anymore and only 0.05% of people care about that stuff.

It's not just about rooting and ROM flashing. Even by default, MediaTek devices are just woefully ill supported by OEMs period and a lot slower at updates than even any of the low end Snapdragon counterparts. People should care about this especially when it concerns Android security patch level intervals.

Updates have nothing to do with Mediatek. Blame the OEM's.

When that blows up, it'll take your whole leg off.

Well hopefully they don't blow up lol, but if they could make a decent phone with a battery like that then kudos.

18000 mah is overkill for a smartphone.

Wonder if Duracell, and Rayovac will make phones next?

It's not the actual Energizer company that is making these phones. The battery company licensed their branding to some French company that makes these phones. Similar to how Blackberry doesn't actually make their own phones anymore, the brand is used by another company.

Just like Dr. Phil said up above this is just them licensing their brand name out to a company to make devices. Businesses do it all the time.

This better last a whole week with at least 30+ hours SOT, otherwise it won't be worth it.......

Interesting. I for one would appreciate a device with 6000-8000 mAh, at least until new battery tech arrives.

They similarly showed one DUMMY of 16000mAh battery phone in MWC 2018. Later they NEVER brought even ONE to market (its a lie that they sold few pieces). Now they are repeating the stunt with 18000mAh battery phone. LIARS, just like Lenovo.
