Energizer did not want to leave the opportunity to make a presentation at the Mobile World Congress 2019, held during the end of February. The American company manufactures mobile terminals that stand out for their great autonomy, being one of their last bets the Energizer Power Max P18K Pop. It is the most autonomous mobile phone in the world, reaching 18000mAh, practically 6 times of what usually offered by traditional manufacturers.
The new Energizer mobile is extremely thick. Specifically, the Power Max P18K Pop brushes 2 centimeters wide -153 x 74.8 x 18mm. The firm itself assures us that it is a commercial concept designed to demonstrate how much battery can fit into a phone. The autonomy of the terminal, according to Energizer, far exceeds the week of use.
The load reaches 18W, above the figures that offer high-end alternatives such as the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, so the load times, which we could not specify, should not be too high, despite the amperage with which the terminal counts. As we could expect from a terminal of this type, we can charge another smartphone, although this must be done by cable, since we do not have a wireless reversible charge as in the Samsung Galaxy S10 or Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
The Power Max P18K Pop is a bet for the medium-high range and achieves a memory configuration worthy of high-price terminals. Despite being a concept focused on the battery, it does not renounce aspects such as USB Type C, fast charging or Bluetooth 5.0.
The hardware section is configured with an alternative MediaTek Helio P70 processor which, at least in the synthetic tests, is significantly above the performance offered by the Qualcomm 660 platform. The memories reach a configuration of 6 + 128GB of RAM and ROM storage, expandable in the latter case up to 128GB via microSD cards. They could not miss the USB Type C, Bluetooth 5.0 or WiFi AC.
The back of the Energizer Power Max P18K Pop is made of glass, wearing a bright electric blue color in the unit that we have been able to test – quite similar to what we find in an Oppo Find X or Honor View 20. The frontal one has an enviable frontal advantage and is that the company has decided to hide the camera of photos inside the own terminal, by means of a pop-up mechanism, already seen in alternatives like the Nex Vivo.
The operation of the said mechanism is fast, being activated when selecting the selfie camera. This allows the Energizer Power Max P18K Pop to achieve a frontal utilization of 83.8%, which gives the feeling of being even greater when we have it in our hands.
What is surprising about the terminal is its good functioning, at least during the minutes that we have been able to use it. The prejudices are inevitable when knowing that the processor that gives life to this terminal is manufactured by MediaTek, in particular, an Helio P70 of 12nm. Energizer bets on Android 9.0 with slight customization in the launcher, avoiding lags and slowdowns in virtually any condition.
The Energizer Power Max P18K Pop will arrive in Spain from June through the company’s distributors – still unspecified -. Its price will be 599 euros (about $680) justified by the concept, the high memory configuration, and the high-end air that Energizer has wanted to equip with this model. A risky bet that is not intended to wipe out sales, but to demonstrate that it is possible to introduce amperages of this type on a smartphone, equal or even superior to what we find even in some of the most popular Power Banks.
