Weight of a SPOT Device

Postby mudminer02 » Sun Feb 12, 2012 6:16 am


Can somebody tell me how much a SPOT device weighs please, either with or without batteries. Not that I don't trust Amazon UK but is states an unboxed SPOT weights 1.5 kg, which is more like a brick than a mobile device. Would also like to know the weight of a SPOT2 please for comparison.
