Satellite phones have been the communication tool of choice for world travelers for decades. That may soon be changing thanks to the SatSleeve ($102) from Thuraya, which transforms your Apple or Android smartphone into a sat phone that can be used in more than 140 countries.

With full walk-and-talk capabilities, the simple plug-in device also allows you to surf the Web and access social media. The case also acts as a portable charger, and an emergency call button allows you to dial a preset number without having your phone docked.

Airtime can be pre-purchased online with plans ranging from $13.50 to $525 a year. Thuraya, +882 16 100 100
