Frequent travellers around the globe can now turn their iPhones into full-fledged Satellite phones with access to worldwide cellular coverage, thanks to the new Thuraya SatSleeve. The SatSleeve comes with a groovy slot to hold your iPhone in place and enable connectivity to cellular networks across the globe.

The best part is that it enables connectivity across remote locations around the world using Bluetooth and wireless functions on your iPhone. You just have to connect the iPhone to the adapter and then slide it into the SatSleeve, which also comes with a dedicated emergency button.

You can always call for help using the emergency aka panic button by pressing the number of your choice and it even works when the phone is slid out of the case. Furthermore, the SatSleeve comes with its own integrated rechargeable battery, supporting one full recharge of your iPhone whenever it is out of charge.

The SatSleeve comes in regular and advanced SatSleeve+ variants wherein the former supports iPhone 4, 4s, 5 and 5s, while the latter suits most phones whose width is around 58mm to 85mm. For instance, the iPhone 7 Plus with 78mm width should fit in just fine on the SatSleeve+.

Interested users may go ahead and purchase the SatSleeve+ via Amazon for a staggering price of $520 (S$730).
