SpareOne phone juices out 15 years battery life from single AA
Some of us are naturally paranoid to a degree that cannot be treated or even helped. For everyone else who sees hope in technology, we recommend the SpareOne emergency phone. It runs on a single AA battery and can just sit idly in your first aid kit or ruck sack for 15 years, waiting for some disaster to strike so that it can make itself useful. Should such an emergency come up, you could use the SpareOne to make calls for 10 hours. That’s what you call a contingency plan for paranoid geeks. Another amazing feature of the SpareOne is that it works wherever it senses a GSM tower.
The SpareOne functions at temperatures in the range of -22 to 140 Fahrenheit. It comes with in a waterproof bag and doubles up as a flashlight as well. What more could you ask from a $90 backup phone? After all, you do not need a SIM card in this one.
