Extreme weather operating range

Disaster situations or outdoor adventure activities are often accompanied by extreme weather conditions. SpareOne can operate at a great temperature span of -22F to 140F. This range is impressive for a basic mobile phone, and even far greater than that of a smartphone.

Programmable Numbers

Although SpareOne does not have a screen, it does have the ability to program 9 important numbers and document them on the menu sticker provided for a visual reminder of what numbers you have programmed. It is recommended that this step is done when you first receive the phone and before storing it away.
