Philips phone gives you 3 extra hours of talk from one AAA battery
If you’re anything like me, you use your cell phone far more than you use your landline. Honestly, the only time I really pick up my home phone is when I know I’m going to be on the line with a customer service rep that could take a while. Aside from that, everything goes through my mobile. Naturally, I can wear my battery down faster than I’d like. Philips knows that this is a problem for some people, and have created a phone that will use a single AAA battery to give you a little extra boost of power.
The Philips [email protected] is about as basic a phone as you will find, aside from the handy little AAA battery compartment. Surprisingly, you’ll get an extra 3 hours out of that single battery. This is perfect for someone that travels a lot, and doesn’t need any of the extra features.
Unfortunately I don’t see this becoming a standard on today’s phones. We are too accustomed to phones that are actually as thin (or thinner) than an AAA. This is one of those designs that would have been really cool a few years ago.
