If you're a tad skeptical of this CES announcement, well, you're certainly not alone. XPAL Power, a manufacturer of mobile phone accessories, has announced the SpareOne, a new cell phone that the company says can hold its charge for up to 15 years.
The $50 SpareOne is slated to ship this quarter in the United States. The dual-band GSM handset uses a single, off-the-shelf AA (alkaline, NiMH, or lithium) battery. It comes with an Energizer Ultimate Lithium L91 battery, which allows the phone to hold its charge, if unused, for up to 15 years, the company claims. Talk time lasts for up to 10 hours.
