You know, as great as our smartphones have become with their octa-cores and quad HDs, one area where they continue to struggle is with battery life. The overwhelming majority of today’s smartphones barely make it through a regular day of use, so what would you say if there was a smartphone that could go as many as 15 days between charges? That’s the promise being put forth by the Oukitel K10000, an Android smartphone from a company you’ve never heard of.

We can’t speak to the actual quality or performance of this thing, but the Oukitel K10000 is rocking an overwhelmingly impressive 10,000 mAh battery under the hood. That’s where it gets its name. And before you say that 10,000 mAh is “only” three or four times the capacity of the battery on most other smartphones, the Oukitel K10000 has a few more battery-sipping tricks. Instead of pushing the spec sheet as far as possible, it uses more mid-range components that presumably suck less juice.

For instance, while you get a phablet-sized 5.5-inch display that’d put it in the same size range as a OnePlus 2, that screen is only 720p. Similarly, you only get a 1GHz quad-core MediaTek chip along with 2GB of RAM. Other highlights, if you can call them that, include an 8MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, 4G LTE, Android 5.1 Lollipop, 16GB storage and a microSD slot that can also be used for a second micro SIM instead. But the battery life is the only reason why you’d consider this thing.

If you want to “break the Guinness” with some surely unauthorized Iron Man imagery, the unlocked Oukitel K10000 is now up for pre-order on for $239.99 with shipments expected to commence in January.
