Hong Kong/Munich, November 05, 2018

When heavy machinery, dirt and noise dominate daily life, a mobile phone must satisfy very special requirements in order to perform reliably. RugGear®, the world’s leading manufacturer of rugged mobile devices, is introducing its new RG150 feature phone, a rugged mobile device for the toughest environmental conditions. The feature phone is compact, 137 grams light and extremely tough. Its extra large, easy-to-operate keyboard makes it simple to use even under the toughest working conditions and with dirty hands or gloves. The RG150’s durability and extremely loud speaker make it a must-have companion for both outdoor and (extreme) sports as well as harsh working conditions such as construction sites. In addition to the IP68 standard, the RG150 also features the military standard MIL-STD 810G and is therefore protected against all types of liquids, dust, oil mist, vibrations, shocks and even falls from up to 1.5 metres onto concrete.

Made for demanding outdoor use

The RG150’s compact and lightweight design with dimensions of 129 x 60 x 17 mm (L x W x H) and a weight of 137 grams makes it easy to hold and stow away for outdoor use. The military standard MIL-STD 810G makes the mobile phone a reliable companion for extreme environmental conditions, defying dirt, water and shocks. Temperatures from -20°C to +60° C can’t harm it and the RG150 also shows its strength when it comes to endurance: The 1,800 mAh battery ensures that the RG150 doesn’t run out of air too quickly, even during longer missions and tours.

Scope of delivery and availability

The RugGear RG150 comes with the device, battery, quick reference guide, USB data cable. The RG150 is available for an RRP of EUR 69,- (incl. VAT).
