Nokia has unveiled an innovative bicycle powered mobile phone battery charger. The Nokia bicycle charger kit charges your mobile phone battery while you ride. A bicycle powered charger will be hot in regions where bicycle riding is popular and electricity is in short supply. It is also eco-friendly, hence will be popular to environment conscious consumers. Of course it will appeal to some because it is simply cool. Nokia also announced some new cheap CSeries phones consisting of Nokia’s first dual-SIM phones: Nokia C1-00 and Nokia C2-00; and Nokia’s cheapest mobile phones with microSD data card support Nokia C1-01 and Nokia C1-02.
The Nokia Bicycle Charger Kit consists of a charger and dynamo, as well as a holder to secure the phone to the bike. When the kit is installed, the dynamo – a small electrical generator – uses the movement of the wheels to charge the mobile phone through the standard 2mm charging jack used in most Nokia mobile phones.
The Nokia bicycle charger kit uses your pedal motion to charge your mobile phone. It supports Nokia 2mm battery charging jack, so you will be able to charge your current mobile phones and possibly future ones. Charging begins when you are riding speed hits about 6km/hour.
The Nokia bicycle charger kit consists of three components: a bottle dynamo, a charger and a phone holder. The bottle dynamo fits to the front of the bike with a mounting bracket. The charger and phone holder attach securely to the handle bars. The charger, phone holder and phone can be removed easily whenever you park your bike. Priced at about $18 (N3,000), the Nokia bicycle charger kit will be available before the end of the year.
