Why We Love It
Why We Love It
We think this device is straight up awesome. It is the perfect phone we want with us on any expedition: camping, hiking, skiing, skydiving, or even a zombie apocalypse. Truth is, this device has enough life saving potential and a friendly enough price point that we leave a separate one in our glove compartment, at home and at the office. For any situation where you need a phone but you need something durable and that won’t die, the SpareOne is the phone to choose.
We love this phone as it brings together many low power technologies into a compact elegant package. It is super light, durable and just works. Not only that, we tested it and the talk quality and connection range is way better than we had expected.
All we know is that when a disaster strikes, you want to be ready. If you have no power and the phone lines are down (who has a land line anyways --- yeesh) when your smart phone dies what do you do? With the SpareOne you don’t have to worry. While you never can plan for these things, you can prepare. And with an LED torch light, 10 hours of talk time and the fact that it runs off a single AA battery, the SpareOne is the definition of being prepared.
Whether you are hiking or traveling, the SpareOne is the phone that you don’t want to be caught without. This utility gadget is designed to do one thing really well, and that is save your ass. When not being used the SpareOne keeps its charge for 15 years on one AA battery. No that is not a typo. So whenever you need it (we hope never), it’s ready for you.
SpareOne comes with a waterproof bag and is designed to handle some seriously extreme temperatures (-22F to 140F). The bag itself is submersible, floats and can be talked through. This multi-purpose tool even doubles as an LED torchlight (seriously bright) that provides 24 hours of continuous light.
With or without a SIM or a phone plan, the SpareOne is ready to use. The phone battery provides 10 hours of continuous talk time. It has a simple one touch button that reaches emergency services wherever you are. If you do put a SIM in, it can be easily pre programed with nine important numbers for quick calling when you are in a bind.
The SpareOne is well designed and looks good as an emergency device. The sleek white and red phone is made of a lightweight plastic that feels sturdy and does not feel cheap. More importantly, it is built using bright colors so you will not be fishing to find it. It has all of the calling ability of a regular phone, will survive pretty much any situation and it looks good while doing it.
