It’s powered by a 5,000mAh battery, but there’s no fast charge here as Lava says the cell takes 3.45 hours to fully charge with the included adapter. However, the company says on a single charge you can get 38 hours of talk time on 4G networks, 480 hours of standby with mobile data enabled, or 10.5 hours of YouTube viewing at full screen brightness.
