Nokia 3310’s news to be 70% charged even after 20 years is spurious

Most of you people have been reading in the news recently about a Nokia 3310 with 70% battery which was found after 20 years. Well, the news is totally fake.

Kevin Moody cleared out his ‘man draw’ looking for a key to the shed when he stumbled upon his old Nokia 3310 mobile phone. The phone had been forgotten for about 20 years but was still switched on. But, the news is not real.

There is no consumer grade battery in the world which can last for up to 20 years without recharging. Furthermore, the news website which posted this story initially, actually publishes satirical content. The website publishes articles with ridiculous titles and stories that defy reality in every sense; it is expected of them since their forte is satire.

And it was incredibly to know that the phone still had just over 70% battery remaining, it means that its battery was charged over 70% inspite of the fact that it has never been kept on charging in the last 20 years and Kevin has remarked how he didn’t ever remember charging the mobile or even owning a charger of this phone.

In today’s world, a city requires electricity with the order of several megawatts and Nokia 3310 original model was powered by just one 1,000 mAh battery. So the people who wrote the article aren’t just bad at basic reporting but they’re downright incumbent at maths and common sense too.

But, now a social media platform is claiming that the news is false as it is next to impossible to happen.
