Many people realize the problem of current smartphones in terms of battery capacity. However, many would like to solve it. After all, though, there are limits, even if the prospect of a 50-day battery is tempting for someone. Ultimately, it turned out that the Avenir Telecom company, despite appearing at the Mobile World Congress, failed to persuade the recipients of its product. It was Energizer Power Max P18K Pop, a hybrid smartphone with a battery with a monstrous capacity of 18,000 mAh. The French corporation has just made a spectacular defeat at the crowdfunding portal Indiegogo. Collected only 1% of the amount expected for the implementation of your project.
The Energizer Power Max P18K Pop should provide up to 50 days or 48 hours of continuous video playback. However, he did not feel it, since only 11 people left the project.
Undoubtedly, there are times when creators need to be alert to draw the attention of investors to their projects. Energizer Power Max P18K Pop has gained a lot of media attention as a kind of exotic curiosity. Unfortunately for Avenir Telecom, it did not turn out much of that. An ambitious goal in the Indiegogo crowdfunding portal has not been reached. Of the estimated US $ 1.2 million, only 15,000 were collected. Translating this in percentages – it is only 1% of the target set by the French company. The project consisted of only 11 people. They will likely receive a refund.

Significant dimensions of the smartphone had a pre-sale price of $ 549, and that price had a full debut to rise to $ 599. Unfortunately, looking at the situation in Indiegogo will probably never happen. On the contrary, it will be better. Will Avenir Telecom's product become the latest fashion trend? However, taking this seriously, it is hard to believe that Avenir really believed that this project would receive such financial support. On the other hand, crowdfunding as a measure of interest seems to be a safe solution. Nor would it be strange if a French company simply wanted to get publicity about this enterprise.
