In 2013 Typhoon Yolanda hit the Philippines causing severe destruction.

The world’s most common battery.
Typically cell phones are powered by rechargeable batteries, which have the advantage of being able to be used then recharged, hundreds of times. However they require cords and adapters to be recharged, and even when fully charged, rechargeable batteries lose their charge in a matter of weeks. The SpareOne is the only cell phone that uses a single standard AA battery. AA batteries are commonly sold in stores and are widespread around the globe. AA Alkaline batteries are also very affordable and fully compatible with the SpareOne. AA batteries have the property of keeping their charge, if stored and unused, for very long periods of time, up to 15 years in the case of the AA battery included with the SpareOne.
Our patent-pending power management circuit was designed to operate from the AA battery voltage while managing the power spikes of mobile phone networks.
The SpareOne accepts standard Alkalines, rechargeables and Lithium AA batteries.
