SIM-less service in

Low flat rate Per Gigabyte of Data in 150+ Countries.

Our SIM-less CANDL Connect™ service is the simplest and easiest to understand data plan on the planet. You pay one low, flat rate per GB for data. Use your data in any of 150+ countries. That’s it.

No streaming caps. No confusing terms and conditions. No SIM cards. No hidden fees.

How it Works:

SIM cards are required to access a cellular network. But with CANDL One, we are using a new “virtual SIM” technology, which means we remotely pair the right SIM card in our cloud-based SIM Library to your device depending on where you are in the world.

CANDL Connect lets you travel the world and stay connected without the hassle of performing open-heart surgery on your smartphone to change out SIM cards. Even if you have a locked smartphone, you can connect with peace of mind that you won’t rack up hundreds (or thousands!) of dollars in roaming fees.

It’s the simplest, easiest, and most cost-effective way to stay connected around the world.

Instead of turning off apps one by one on your device, you can control what data gets uploaded or downloaded through the CANDL Connect App.

Life can be Unpredictable

CANDL is the device you want with you in an emergency.

One thing we worry about when the power goes out is how to keep our smartphone charged. With CANDL One and it’s powerful 20,400 mAh battery, you can charge your device up to 6-7 times, making sure you can still stay connected.

Our Mission:

Help bring connectivity to one million disaster survivors and refugees  by 2020.

At CANDL, we believe connectivity is a human right.

We started CANDL with the idea that we could bring connectivity to the people who need it most – the disconnected, displaced, and distressed.

This includes our friends and family members who need our help when a disaster strikes in our home town, as well as refugees and disaster survivors on the other side of the world. Together, we’re all Global Citizens, and we can all help each other through the gift of connectivity.

Our social mission to bring one million people who have lost everything back online is what drives us to build the most durable, rugged, and feature-rich devices on the market.

Every purchase of a CANDL device or data package helps us achieve this challenging yet extremely important goal.
