Cheap SpareOne phone will run for 15 years on single AA battery, perfect for emergencies
Your car has stalled out in the middle of nowhere and your smartphone battery is dead. What will you do? Well, if you bought the SpareOne phone for $49.99, you will probably be able to make a phone call for roadside assistance. The SpareOne is an aptly name cheap device designed to be a spare cell phone for emergencies and will be introduced at CES. With its focus on emergencies, the phone also doubles as a flashlight

The dual-band GSM SpareOne transmits its location next to the Caller ID info and is basically a phone that you buy, toss in the glove compartment or the trunk, and forget about it. Designed by Xpal Power, the company that makes Energizer and PowerSkin, a single AA battery supposedly will offer 10 hours of talk time and can hold a charge for up to 15 years.
