Does anyone have a web address for a sat phone accesory company either here or in US. I am looking for a dc charger for a Qualcomm but they are fairly expensive here.

Got our subsidy for the phone today so just about ready for the trip north. Only three weeks to go then Sth Aligator River, Daly, King Ash Bay and Weipa.

Thanks

John

Had the same problem in December.

Qualcomm had none left in Australia and they were still not even in the production line. I found it cheaper to buy the $80.00 inverter from Jaycar which meant that I could also recharge the camera and video batteries with the same unit.

Just plug in for a few hours each week as you are driving along - if you use your normal cig lighter on the dash it is safer as when you turn off the car power is cut and you can't waste battery power.

Thanks Paul,

That was plan B. How do you find the phone?

OK
We actually hire them out on a weekly basis and have had no trouble to date.

One just got picked up tonite to go to an Island 40kms of Bundaberg for 3 weeks fishing.

We find it a great idea to have the CDMA option as a first try which is a good money saver for our customers.

Hi John, Check out globalcomsatphone and deltawavecomm These should work out heaps cheaper including postage. I cant believe how expensive these are just for a 12 Volt charger.

Cheers, ToNy!
