Iridium Satellite Phone Chargers
Keep Powered Up!
So, while it’s a comfort to know you have a fully functioning satellite phone when you’re out in the middle of nowhere, ensuring you have a working satellite phone charger is critical to maintain power to the device, which is why having a backup charger or two is highly advised.
Some phones come with an antenna adapter that charges the device but when the phone isn’t being used, it’s better to use the power charging adapter.

When planning your trip and necessity for a sat phone, consider important preparation tips to make sure your communications device does not let you down.
Check you have sufficient airtime and/or data to avoid running into a low or zero balance, which will render your phone useless.
Ensure the satellite phone’s software/firmware is up to date.
Keep the necessary accessories with your sat phone and have backups of items (like chargers and batteries) where possible.
Most importantly, charge the sat phone before leaving home to verify it holds the charge for a few hours without being attached to power.
