Energizer, the battery maker, has launched a new range of long-life smartphones in the United Kingdom, some of which the company claims can last more than two weeks even on a single charge.
The firm has released 13 various handsets, including the Power Max P600S which costs £400. The company said that it contains a battery that is able to last a maximum of 16 days on standby or 12 hours of constant talk time on 4G.
By comparison, the majority of the modern smartphones are only limited to a battery life that lasts between one and two days.
Some of the latest devices are equipped with bigger batteries as compared to those that are typically used in smartphones – the Power Max P550S contains a 5000mAh battery that the company says can last a maximum of 20 days when on standby – as compared to the around 3000mAh batteries that are most commonly used in other phones.
The phones of Energizer range from £15 to £400 and also include many of the highly durable devices that are called the Hardcase collection, which is said to be dustproof and water resistant.
The phones are licensed by Avenir Telecom, a French firm whose chief executive Robert Schiano said they were eager to offer alternatives to the established names in the industry.
He stated: “Our new range of long-lasting phones give consumers one of the best possible battery life performances as well as superb durability, meaning that these phones have the potential to go on and on.
“Within the range we have phones to suit all tastes and budgets – and although our handsets are super-practical they have a high spec and contain all the features you’d expect from a sleek smartphone, so we believe that they tick all the boxes.”
Majority of the smartphones that are included in the line-up run on the Android operating system of Google and feature high-specification cameras. However, Energizer says that there are also some “rugged” devices.
One device is the Hardcase H240S that can last for a maximum of 30 minutes when used underwater. The company claims that it can also withstand drops from over a metre high.
