Cell Phone Lasts Two Years on a Charge (as Paperweight)

You can bet that when I came across the holy grail of xenophilia-meets-green-technology, my attention was drawn. A China-based phone maker has wedged a 32800-mAh lithium battery into a touchscreen-enabled candy-bar phone and swears it will run for two years on one charge. A quick look at the specs, however, reveals that this never-say-die handset, while boasting an (approximate?) standby time of 666 days, offers an aggressively mediocre talk time of 5 to 6 days. If you still care, it features a 3-inch display, dual SIM slots, dual cameras, an MP3 player, and more for $128. So, allegedly, it should even outlive its one-year warranty, meaning if the claim isn’t true, you probably won’t be able to do anything about it anyway. We’ll, uh, keep you posted on those battery-life tests. [Via GadgetTell]
