Have you ever ever wished your smartphone had a battery that would final for per week or two, like these outdated Nokia telephones? I believe everybody would agree that sounds superb. One Redditor took it upon himself to make a phone do exactly that, however you received’t need to use it.
Smartphones proceed bettering with every launch, and whereas battery life is slowly getting longer, it’s nonetheless arguably one of many weakest hyperlinks. Consequently, a person on Reddit bought Samsung’s inexpensive Galaxy A32 5G with a 5,000 mAh battery, then added a further 30,000 mAh to the cellphone.
A few of the costliest units, just like the Galaxy S23 Ultra, solely include a 5,000 mAh battery. So to improve a funds cellphone to over six instances that capability is fairly wild. Nevertheless, nothing concerning the finish result’s fairly or all that helpful. It’s moderately atrocious.
The Redditor purchased six Samsung 50E battery cells and wired them collectively in parallel, which ended up being one huge 30,000 mAh battery. Clearly, that received’t match inside a smartphone, so it’s glued and hooked up to the again. The person says this contraption takes about seven hours to cost absolutely, however it’ll seemingly final 10-12 days, if not longer, on a cost.
Whereas it’s actually not fairly, this modification additionally delivers two USB-A ports on the underside to cost different units from the brick, to not point out USB-C and Lightning inputs. Personally, I’d purchase a transportable battery pack and name it a day.
It’s value noting that this in all probability isn’t one of the best concept, to not point out a fireplace security hazard, however it’s neat to see what some common of us can suppose up and create.
