In this age of svelte, slimmed-down smartphones, it’s slightly refreshing to see a manufacturer go the other way. Energizer made its name with batteries so it’s perhaps fitting that the company’s latest battery comes with a phone attached to it. The P18K Pop is thicc. Like, almost thicker than three modern iPhones.

Just in case you think that chonky boi is just a throwback to the days when feature phones were literal bricks, the P18K Pop has a surprise under the hood. 18,000 mAh of battery for all your social media needs.

Other smartphone makers might still be trying to shave precious grams off their phones, but Avenir Telecom (who makes Energizer’s phones) has a body-positive take to give people what they really want – excessive battery life. It’s almost enough to make your skinny phone have a complex.

Get ready for a ton of weight-related jokes, although by the time the P18K Pop is launched in June – perhaps we’ll be tired of our diet of dad-bod jokes and can talk about the phone objectively.

Accompanying the power bank-sized battery is a mix of innovative features like a pop-up selfie cam, a triple-camera main camera module with a depth sensor and what appears to be vanilla Android 9.0. That big chungus of a battery will also charge fast over USB-C, although speed is relative when it will take up to 8 hours to fully recharge.

Running the show is a MediaTek processor, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage; an interesting mix of flagship storage with a mid/low range processor. Still, you’re not buying it for the processing power, you’re buying it for the absolute unit of a battery.
