I love a phone with good battery life. Not only is it handy for daily duty, it's also especially important given how hard it is to replace the batteries in today's phones. Decent staying power when a phone is new should mean you'll get 2-3 years of use before battery life takes a noticeable tumble. But now an unlikely phone brand looks set to launch a camera phone with a battery so big you could potentially stay off-grid for weeks without needing a recharge. Energizer, the battery experts, have teased a new phone: the P28K, so named as its battery is rated at an incredible 28,000mAh!
