A US firm has developed a mobile phone that it says can run on a single domestic AA battery and act as a back-up for at least 15 years. The SpareOne phone is a no-frills dual band GSM phone designed to act as an emergency backup handset.
The company says that "SpareOne is the only cellular phone in the world that runs on a single AA battery", although there was a Motorola handset released back in 1994, the "Personal Phone" that used 4 AA batteries and was also marketed at the emergency user.
"SpareOne's breakthrough technology provides an unprecedented lifeline during dire situations that require an emergency response," said Alan Cymberknoh, SpareOne Project Director at XPAL Power.
It boasts an incredible talk time of up to 10 hours and can keep its charge for up to 15 years if unused.
SpareOne, equipped with an Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA battery and a Micro SIM card, will be available in the USA shortly for $49.99.

if you want to improve your memory try writing down all your worries. Researchers have speculated that the cathartic act of writing down your feelings may free up cognitive resources in your brain. The physical act of writing down your worries frees your mind from avoiding thoughts about them. Hence, your mental energies that were devoted to avoidance are now free for other tasks, such as building up your memory skills. Further, writing down things, reduces the stress on the mind.
