AT&T’s Latest GoPhone Runs On AA Batteries

Posted by at 11:45 am on November 3, 2015

AT&T today announced the SpareOne Emergency Phone, a simple handset meant purely to serve as a backup phone for critical situations.

The SpareOne runs on AA batteries, rather than a rechargeable lithium-polymer power cell. The batteries provide about 11 hours of talk time and about 10 days of standby time. The SpareOne also includes a flashlight, glow-in-the-dark keypad, siren, and SOS alert.

The phone comes with a service called Locate & Alert, which can be used to alert up to nine contacts in an emergency, who will be given the SpareOne owner’s location. AT&T suggests the handset would be ideal for young children, outdoor adventurers, or grandparents.

The SpareOne Emergency Phone costs $59.99 and service costs $25 per year with 120 voice minutes. The SpareOne reaches AT&T stores Nov. 6.
