Parts of a disposable phone

  1. Paper body-  Disposable phones are made of paper substrate.
  2. Circuit board- Disposable phones have no technical components, so there is no physical circuit to make up for it. So, a metallic ink is used to draw the circuit board on the phone body. This ink traces the path of a conventional circuit board consisting of wires, circuits.
  3. Physical components-The internal components are placed within the hard paper body, they are tiny capacitors and crystals. A thin keyboard is placed on the external front side of the phone.
  4. Bonding of the components- A very strong adhesive is used to bind the two layers of hard paper panel together. It also keeps in place the internal crystals and capacitors.
  5. Power supply-A battery is connected to a connector. It helps supply the power from the battery, at the end of the phone to the circuit within the phone.
  6. Accessories- The phone is printed with numbers, alphabets and other creative designs to make it attractive. It is then compressed to a structure similar to thickness of 3 credit cards put together. The phone is then covered in synthetic polymeric material and sealed. On one end a small opening is given to connect the headset with the phone.

The disposable phones though are only limited to making calls, have many advantages. You do not have to worry about losing your personal contact numbers and other data. They are best to make emergency calls when you are travelling.
