This ultralight, no-contract phone has a 15-year battery life, making it the perfect just-in-case backup to toss in your glove box or backpack before an adventure. Slide in your SIM card (there’s also an international version available) and use the device in place of your smartphone, or don’t add a SIM and use it just for crisis calls.
