You're in the middle of an important call, your mobile is sending warning beeps to say it's nearing its last drops seconds of talk time, and suddenly you're cut off. How frustrating is it to have a dying cell phone? If you've experienced the frustration, imagine a phone with batteries that hold their charge for nearly two years.... that makes the one year standby on the LionKing800 look pathetic.

A Chinese cell phone company currently offers the I-Coloured Mobile's ZJ268 which they claim will hold its charge for 666 days. That's without a single charge, but those numbers apply only while the device is on standby. It's not some boring, basic phone either. It has a 1.3 mp camera, 3 inch display, dual SIM card slot and best of all, costs only $128.

The image shows cleverly Photoshopped horns as visual commentary on the peculiar 666 day claim. Makes you think twice about the evil invasion of technology on our lives, doesn't it?

Of course, if you can find a sunny spot, you can let nature help you recharge your solar powered battery. On the other hand, if it's dark out and you don't mind exerting a little personal energy, there are always eco-friendly hand cranks.
