SpareOne Plus. It's a phone for emergencies, man.

  • 12 August 2013

Survivalists have a point, you know.

Despite their reputation as silver-hoarding loons who live where the far-right sidewalk ends, you should give them credit: they know how to prepare for an emergency.

And now, so do you – courtesy SpareOne Plus, finally available for order.

This is the phone for your bug-out bag.

It runs on Earth’s most common battery (a single AA) and holds a charge for — wait for it — 15 years.

The Plus offers ten hours of talk time, comes with a waterproof sack, works at temps between -22 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit, and can double as a flashlight or SOS torch-light in times of need.

Starting in September, the phone’s “location and alert services” will be able to pinpoint your position and send out a distress alert to all your assigned contacts.

So now you’ve got your phone. Best get to preppin’.
