You're in a field, your smart phone is dead, it's an emergency.
It’s a dark and windy night. You’re driving along a winding, isolated road in a dark forest, on a forbidding mountain top, and the car’s just stopped. Uh oh.
OK, so it does kind of sound like the setting for a cheesy horror movie, but there are no psycho backpackers in this story (that we know about). No, the twist in this tale is much, much worse. You see, you’re stranded in this cliché, and your super-reliable, super-smart phone has just died.
Luckily, you’ve got a SpareOne in the glove box. Created for those moments when all else fails, and you need to make that emergency call, the SpareOne Emergency Mobile Phone is a lightweight phone that runs on a single AA battery. Just pop your SIM card into the back and dial away. It even has a torch.
Powered by an AA battery
Simply pop it in your handbag, backpack or glove box and forget about it, safe in the knowledge that you’ll always get your emergency call.
