Battery is 5000mAh which is non-removable, Asus claims you can have up to 38 days stand by time that if you off Bluetooth, Data and WIFI connection. To charge another device like smartphones (both Team Android and Team Apple), Power Bank , Portable Bluetooth Speaker you need to use the included USB on-the-go cable and the another USB cable to charge them. Thus you’re now a walking power bank and no one will look for wall sockets and wall chargers as they can depend on you from now on. Using our in-house battery test with YouTube playlist, the battery life lasted 10 hours, which is the best we have tested so far.

Its a simple phone, great for people who are heavy user when it come to web browsing and simple light gaming (Pokemon Go Smartphone) on long runs without the need to carry an extra power bank. In fact I see this as a secondary phone for power hungry task. Essentially is a Laser 2 phone with better CPU and large capacity battery. Price is reasonable and affordable, recommended to anyone to get it if you are finding a secondary phone. Just a side note, other flagship phone can do charging over USB on-the-go just that the Max phone has a nearly twice the battery capacity making it a power monster. Buy it @ Amazon: Here
