Xiaomi has been running a livestream online to demonstrate the battery life of its behemoth 6.44-inch Mi Max phablet — and the show's been on for nearly two weeks now.

The Chinese phone giant launched the stream on May 10 at 4pm in the afternoon local time, right after it launched the device.

Each hour, the phone's screen is briefly turned on to show it's still running.

Thanks to the phone's massive body, Xiaomi's been able to put a 4,850 mAh battery in it, which has been powering the device for a mind-boggling two weeks.

Users tuning in continue to flood the chat box with a whizzing stream of remarks.

Several Chinese papers have commented on the livestream, with one saying it taps into the "emptiness" of present youth in the country who are addicted to their devices and online videos.
