COSTA MESA, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 6, 2013) - SpareOne, the world's only emergency mobile phone powered by a single AA battery, launches SpareOne Plus, featuring a series of enhancements to the original multi award winning SpareOne.

"SpareOne has been solidified as a must-have preparedness device, through its innovation and ability to keep lines of communication open when power is completely unavailable or inaccessible," said Alan Cymberknoh, SpareOne Project Director at XPAL Power. "SpareOne Plus is packed with additional safety features and communicates with users even more intuitively than before."

Upgrades to the SpareOne Plus include new standard features such as audible function feedback (which reads the number dialed and operational functions aloud), a panic siren and SOS flashing torchlight mode. The SpareOne Plus also has the capability to activate proprietary Locate and Alert Services (live early September). This service will identify the approximate location of the SpareOne Plus by relying on the surrounding cell towers information. It can also designate contacts to receive an alert via email and text. This is accessible through a secure website powered by Monitorlinq.

Monitorlinq offers an enterprise grade, cloud based security solution for instant alerting to your loved ones in case of distress, including all relevant details.

SpareOnePlus is now available to purchase for $79.99 USD, and is debuting an offer for the first 500 phones purchased to receive a free, one-year Locate and Alert Service activation powered by Monitorlinq, a $30 value. (Services pack available early September) visit www.spareone.com to order.
