Chinese smartphone manufacturer Oukitel has launched a new smartphone K1000 featuring a humongous 10,000mAh battery.The company claims that the battery is enough to last 10 to 15 days of normal use on a single charge.

Apart from a large 10000mAh battery, the Oukitel K10000 is a low end smartphone. It features a 720p 5.5-inch display, a 64-bit 1GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6735 SoC and 2GB of RAM, which is basic enough that it actually should help to keep power consumption much lower than flagship phones.

The connectivity options include GPRS/ EDGE GPS/ A-GPS, 3G, Micro-USB, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. It measures 143x77x9mm, and weighs 184 grams.
Another important feature of the K10000 is that it comes with reverse charging,which allows users to utilize the handset as a power bank to charge other devices.
