Babby BOB Phone

Post by Quill » Wed Nov 28, 2018 11:41 pm

Lads, we all know saving weight and space is vital in a BOB or EDC kit but what if you want a backup backup phone that is so small it fits inside the prison pocket!

I present, the Gravitis J8!

I am genuinely half-tempted to get it just to see what it's like. It only weighs 19 grams. Who knows, it might even be useful :lol:

Carrying it would be a right pain in the........ :mrgreen:
The roads are pretty bad and if you do end up getting stuck its hard to justify your reason for being on the roads as 'vegan mince for a feckin' princess'.

Thats sort of tempting, but not at £29 :lol:

Interesting to see it has a "voice changer" - that really makes me wonder about the target market :?

I think you have hit the nail on the head Arzosah.

Thing is,in a real hard core BO situation,phone signals probably wont work...just a thought.
I am not grumpy. I just don’t waste words.

Aye, did already think it would be easier to smuggle into a prison than a normal phone.

Yeah, my thinking was more along the line of personal/local messes.

For years I used an old Nokia 3310 as a spare phone, when I was abroad I put a local sim card in it to phone taxi's etc. It was great, tiny and and worked anywhere. I 'inherited' the cheap crappy mobile I bought my dad and while I wouldn't really want to use the 'prison pocket' option :shock: its relatively small and cost a tenner with a tenners worth of credit on it. It uses a USB charger which wins out over the old Nokia for me, and lives in my GHB along with my charging options.

I'm using a nokia I got off amazon for a fiver as my phone atm while my main one is being repaired and honestly I'm loving it. It's a great having a phone that stays charged for donkeys.

Texting is a fecker though, having to press a key 3 times to get a 'C' is a pain. :evil:
