That Chonky Energizer Phone is Not Doing Well on Indiegogo

Remember Energizer's massive slab of a phone with an 18,000 mAh battery?

Well, despite being a large company with presumably plenty of cash, brand owner Avenir Telecom has decided to crowdfund it via Indiegogo, and it's going badly.

The page has been up for a few days now, and at the time of writing it has... three backers.

The funding tracker woefully notes it has raised "0% of $1,200,000."

The P18K was written about in pretty much every tech publication going, and got far more attention than the actually quite interesting foldable phone they showed at the same time.

Well, it unsurprisingly turns out that while people love the idea of a daft phone that's an inch thick and lasts forever, they don't actually want to buy one.
