Want to see how thick a phone with 10 000 mAh battery will be? Check out this Oukitel dummy
We've mentioned the Oukitel brand before, as one of those typical Chinese value-for-money propositions with its U9 handset - blessed with a 1080p screen, octa-core chipset, 3 GB of RAM, and other top-shelf virtues, it sells for about $200 only. 

Now, Oukitel says it is prepping to outdo everyone else in the battery life arena (including Lenovo's signature three-day battery phones with 4000 mAh units) by outing a phone with the jaw-dropping 10,000 mAh juicer. "How thick would that thing be?" was our immediate reaction, but the folks from Oukitel didn't leave us guessing, and sent us some chassis prototype mould pics, where we can see the eventual girth. 

Truth be told, we expected a phone outfitted with a gigantic battery capacity like this to be thicker than what you see in these pictures. It's actually not that bad, considering that this new Oukitel, which they say is due a few months from now, will probably be able to last you a week on a charge with normal usage. What do you think - fat or not?

Overnight charging needed same as my Mi 10400 mAh power bank which takes 6-8 hrs to charge fully. Quick charge would make it to almost half.

But then you don't have to charge it for days.

That means it gets 2500mAh per hour, which is pretty damn good. In comparison to one of the larger battery phones out there, a OnePlus One, (3100mAh battery), you'll have the same amount of charge as that phone in just an hour and fifteen minutes.

I seriously hope it has quick charge, if not it'll take a day to charge it.

And 5 days to discharge it - good deal if you ask me

My nokia with a 1600mah battery is thicker than that! Great job

Looks like a rugged phone, 10,000 mAh 1. It would take a long time to charge even with quick charge 2. It is going to be an endurance champ. Probably the closest smartphone to 3310's battery life.

A lot thinner than I would assume a phone with a 10,000 mAh battery would look like.

I would be more worried about the weight than the thickness, that looks way thinner than all the feature phones i use to own from Nokia & Sony Ericsson.

Can we see this next to something? An S6 or G4 perhaps? We need a baseline to use as a frame of reference.

Doesn't seem thick at all, why can't we get more phones that keep such a size and get much better battery?

Everybody's talking about it is thinner... But nobody saw a reference here. It could be 2cm thick andnyou wouldn't know it.nit needs to be compared with a other device or a coin etc. Etc.

"But nobody saw a reference here." Yes we did, there's a mock micro USB plug, you can get a rough estimate how thick it is. Just looking at this, it's easily 2.1-2.5cm.

Yes you are right. I looked closer and saw what you meant meant. Same with the headphone jack.

Most likely will be midrange to make it thinner.big camera sensor and stuff take a lot of space

Ok then we don't need 10000mah as due to charging time and thickness then y don't u release a 5000mah flagship,it will solve all the problems.......but as always htc,lg,samsung,apple will always go 2990mah battery like this.....

I dont think more battery power is what we need now... The world wants more breakthrough in terms of build.

27. neonix

Posts: 67; Member since: Aug 04, 2014

Every big phone manufacturer is doing that and we've completely stagnated in battery technology. Battery power is exactly what we need and many people want it.

It would be easier for the readers to answer your question if you placed the exact measurements and display size, yes?

Looks good. I'm completely okay with this. Gimme it now!

I don't mind the thickness, but is it really a 10,000mAh capacity or just a hoax (real capacity could be different). Also, it all comes down to software optimization at the end of the day.
