No one expects bad things to happen–but they do.
Your car can break down in the middle of nowhere where your cell phone might
unexpectedly die because you forgot to bring what you need to power it back
up. Then again, there is the possibility of being caught in a natural
disaster or you might not even own a cell phone when you find yourself in a tough spot. How
would you get help or communicate with loved ones? Fortunately, you can
handle the situation with a little planning and a SpareOne Emergency Phone by XPal like
the one I was sent for this review.
This phone is not meant to be used as your primary cell
phone–only as a spare for emergencies. This could be a real lifesaver,
especially if you make it a habit to keep a phone like this as a part of an emergency survival kit to keep with
Items like a blanket, food such as a box of granola bars, first aid
supplies, a hammer to break a window when the computer locks, a flashlight, a Swiss Army knife, and a handy phone like this one could get you out of a jam.

Even if your car is immersed in water by keeping that kit within reach could then be more survivable because you had packed a kit, including a phone that comes in a waterproof bag
that floats. This heavy duty bag can be resealed and handle extreme
Inside this phone, you get a Lithium AA battery that the
company claims will keep its charge for fifteen years. Once you pull the
tab to operate the power, you can get about ten hours of talking time and a
month of standby time according to them.
I liked the oversized buttons and their wide spacing
this phone has to make it easier to work with unsteady fingers if injured or
trembling from fear. Sporting an emergency cross is a bigger button
that can work without a SIM or by inserting one to continue sending and
receiving calls, but no LCD screen only a transparent window to the two
multi-colored LED lights regarding the battery life and signal. You can
pre-program nine numbers.
This phone has a LED torchlight that can provide up to
twenty-four hours of continuous light.
Furthermore, this SpareOne Emergency Phone has an
auto text reply feature. What happens is that if anyone sends you a text,
this phone will reply back with a message that to get in touch with you has to
be through a phone call now–not a text.
No one is immune to unexpected problems. If you feel
trouble can only happen to other people, then I assure you it does catch up to
everyone at some point in your life.
Therefore, if you want to remain
lucky, then make sure you have an emergency kit. Also, do think of the SpareOne Emergency Phone from XPal. It retails for $99.99.
The company has programs set up for schools,
churches, clubs, and other organizations to maximize fundraising efforts
or to donate to get these phones in as many hands as possible. Learn more about making your community LIVEPREPARED.
