New phone has 15 year battery life

Written by Nick Farell



Spare One drops the extras


A new phone, which runs on one AA battery, can keep its charge for up to 15 years and is being designed for those who want a 'backup' phone you can keep in the glove compartment for emergencies. [Next to my .45 Ed]

The idea is that you can keep it there without worrying if it’s charged or not. Most modern mobiles will lose their charge over time, even if switched off. It can be pre-programmed for instant access to phone numbers of key contacts, including the relevant emergency services in any location.

That single battery offers a talk time of up to 10 hours. According to a press release the makers XPAL Power, says: “it’s essentially designed to make and receive the most important calls, no matter what”.

The SpareOne’s is also able to automatically transmit its location via its mobile ID, plus has a built-in torch - and unlike so many of today’s gadgets, it even comes with the AA battery included.
