The SpareOne Cellphone uses one AA battery
The SpareOne comes with a waterproof bag. Scheder notes that a dry, unused battery can last for years so keeping your phone dry can keep you from having to change your battery for a long, long time, allowing your unit to be ready to handle any emergency that comes up. Besides the extra big emergency call button, a flashlight on the top of the phone runs for 24 hours. The company also makes an app that lets your smartphone track other people's locations during emergencies. The SpareOne costs $99.99 and is being displayed at CES 2013.

They should just make a 911 only phone for much cheaper and wouldn't require service fees.

For less than $20 I can get a AA powered external charger that will work with any phone, so I see no need for a second phone for $100.
