Technical Specifications

Dimensions

  • 4.5″ x 3.25″ x 1.25″

Weight

  • 10.14 ounces (0.65 lbs, or 295 grams)

Durability

  • MIL-STD-810F
  • Ingress Protection (IP65)

Battery

  • 7 hours talk, 16 hours standby

Data Network

  • At 2.4 Kilobits per second, the Iridium Go! is not a solution to those looking for a connection for normal Internet use. Email attachments of any size will take minutes or hours to transfer, and a single webpage would take 5 to 10 minutes to load. Connectivity to the Internet with the Iridium Go should be considered an emergency backup solution. Having more than one connected device would create an even worse bottleneck (it allows up to 5 connected devices). The good news is that applications like SMS text messaging and text-only email messages (using their email app), use far less data, and are the real shining heroes here. Let’s not forget it’s also capable of making/receiving a voice call from anywhere the sky can be seen.

Usage Control Features

  • Smartphone connectivity must go through specialized Email or Internet Apps
  • Firewall controls to avoid runaway data charges

Interfaces

  • Wi-Fi Range is 100′ or 30.5 meters for up to 5 devices
