Poor battery life is one of the most common complaints among smartphone users. Who doesn’t want their device to last longer between charges? Thanks to its frankly ludicrously sized 18,000 mAh battery, however, that’s not a complaint I can ever imagine anyone leveling at Energizer’s new Power Max P18K Pop.
This is a device that’s absolutely in a league of its own as far as battery capacity is concerned. That’s great if you want a phone that can charge your other devices – it doubles up as a power bank – and still have plenty of juice left to burn, but sadly there’s a fairly substantial trade-off in terms of both size and portability.

There’s no surprise that the Power Max P18K Pop is much thicker, but nothing quite prepares you for just how bulky it is. Measuring 18mm deep, it’s more than twice as thick as the iPhone XS.
