There is finally a Phone that you can use in the rugged outdoors without having to worry about it getting ruined from the elements or other adventurous activities. The Dewalt MD501 is an Android smartphone that is reliable whether you are at home, at the top of the nearest mountain, or in the middle of nowhere on the coldest day of the year.
Dewalt MD501 Features
There are multiple features on the Dewalt MD501 and you will love them all. The phone only weighs 245 grams, so you will not be weighed down when carrying this with you. The external memory microSD card can go up to 64 GB, which is perfect for any pictures that you take with the 13MP rear camera or the 5MP front camera. The Bluetooth 4.0 will allow you to talk or listen to music while keeping your hands free. The 3950 mAh battery in the phone means that you can have it on standby for up to 450 hours, so you will be able to hike safely for days. The phone can be easily charged by placing it on a Qi charging pad.
Built for rugged outdoors & harsh Canadian winters
The Dewalt MD501 will still work even if dust or particles enter it and the phone is waterproof for up to thirty minutes. If you participate in extreme outdoor activities or work outdoors, then you are probably outside in any type of weather and temperatures. Thankfully, the Dewalt MD 501 works in temperatures from -20 degrees Celsius to 60 degrees Celsius and you can use the touch screen even if you are wearing gloves. This is HUGE for Canadians who work outdoors, or for those that lead an active outdoor lifestyle. Imagine being able to use your phone’s screen on the sloves when you have your gloves on. Assuming the UI on whatever app you’re using doesn’t have tiny button, you should have no problem tapping. I tested Spotify out with gloves and it worked like a dream!
The G-sensor, gyroscope, magnetic, pressure, light and range sensors, and GPS will help if you ever get lost or are having difficulty, but if you ever find yourself in a situation where you need help, all you need to do is push the emergency alert button on the phone. The man down detection will work even if the phone has been dropped up to two meters onto concrete. This makes the Dewalt MD501 a potential lifesaver for anyone hiking some of Canada’s most rugged trails.
Anyone who spends time outside will want to purchase the Dewalt MD501, so that they can use a phone no matter where they are. The Dewalt MD501 will work anywhere, at any time, even during the coldest times of the year.
Check this phone out if you’re in the market for something more rugged than a Samsung or iPhone. It might be a bit bulky but the benefits far outweigh the slight increase in size.
