Energizer’s Power Max P16K Pro: the phone with a battery that could last a working week


Sixteen thousand milliamp hours? In a phone? That’s what the Energizer Power Max P16K Pro is boasting.

Let’s get what this one-of-a-kind phone claims to have into some context: the iPhone X packs a 2,716mAh battery, while the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus goes all the way to… 3,500mAh.

So the Power Max P16K Pro’s 16,000mAh battery is about four or five times bigger than the big boys’ batteries. That’s massive.

With this in mind, we’re not sure why its makers are playing down its longevity. “It’s really hard to talk about average use, because battery power all depends on how much you’re using WiFi and data. But this phone’s battery should be long enough for about two or three days of normal use,” says Julien Emard at Marseille, France-based Avenir Telecom, which licenses the Energizer brand for phones and accessories.

Only a smartphone addict would eat through 16,000mAh that quickly, surely? We reckon four or five days seems more likely for most.

“We thought we’d give it a big battery because, hey, it’s Energizer – it HAS to have a big battery!” said Emard.
