Hi there,


There were several Alcatel models with GSM network technology, you could buy them in very few telephone companies with "prepaid as the first option and contract for the wealthy", the mobile device including the sim card. I remember them for their large size with a walkie that these also included batteries or batteries, like the Alcatel.

Alcatel years 1995-2000.


Other brands.

"Looking at it, we think this was more of a way to promote Sanyo’s Eneloop batteries than an actual attempt to sell phones."


Looking at the other phones, looks like this is the only phone that people might have wanted to buy.

It is that stupidly simple to repair. If Fairphone made the next successor powered by a Snapdragon 700 Series chipset and ship it to more countries outside Europe, 11 out of 10 I'd instantly buy one.

I wonder what would happen if there is a SpareOne with 4G LTE bands.

I hope one day we can research a phone that can take the battary out of the phone.So when we needed,we can put a new battary in the phone to keep it working and charge the old battary.


Also I hope we can have a charger that can charge different battary from different phone in that day.


That seen like somthing we will have in the future!

I literally thought about it this morning not knowing it existed (my mind got wild free from thinking about a power bank I bought for an Arduino project, then I thought about using AA batteries, then I made the link between this and smartphones).


And I thought it would be a good argument against people advocating for fast charging and small batteries, like :


We'll make a phone that run on AA batteries, so rather than ruining batteries for us, you'll just change your AA battery and get effectively "instant recharge" that way.


So, knowing it does exist made me smile 🤣

I couldn't see myself using this phone. I do not have AA batteries just randomly laying around, and they're really expensive (where I live anyway) so yeah.

To this date I still don't buy Smartphones where you can't easily replace the battery. Only exception was a XZ1 Compact which I bought used for a few bucks out of nostalgia


Before I buy a new Smartphone I look for disassemble videos. If it's too complicated to repair/replace parts (like Battery) I simply don't buy it.

I had Motorola M3288 back in days. It was my first mobile phone and had huge NiMH battery wich could be replaced with 4 AA batteries. It was a pretty terrible phone but I loved it. 🙂

Well, I had a motorola phone, before the time of gsm and sim cards, it used 3 AAA Ni Cd rechargeable batteries, which was very convenient in the event of a low batt emergency, those Ni Cd batts needed several hours to get fully charged

It was very limited and ugly. For me fully capable means Android phone because iPhone is very limited too.
