Nominee: SpareOne Plus Phone
Have you ever gone on a trip, only to realize you left your cell phone charger at home? SpareOne takes that inconvenience out of the equation: it’s the only cell phone that uses a single standard AA battery for power. SpareOne offers the freedom of knowing that a fully charged cell phone is only a battery away, or that in the event of a natural disaster, you could maintain cell phone power without electricity.
