Power Bank Phone
A BACK-UP PHONE
While this phone may look clunky, its battery life and connectivity are superior to today’s sleek smartphones. Developed in Ghana where power shortages are common, the battery lasts for up to a week, and can be used to charge other smartphones and small electronic devices. The phone also has three separate SIM card slots, enabling users to easily switch between different networks in areas of poor coverage.
