How do Satellite Phones work?
Satellite phones are designed to work anywhere outside with over 60% sky visibility, they search and find a satellites and enable the calls/SMS/data to be transferred. With up to 30 hours standby time and 3.2 hours of talk time they are ideal for travellers, trampers, hunters, fishermen etc where general cell phone use is limited. They are slightly larger than your typical cell phone but small enough to easily fit into a backpack (water/dust resistant) and they’re easy to use.
