Now you can charge your mobile phone with free and eco-friendly energy when you cycle. Thanks to Nokia for it’s new Bicycle Charger Kit! The new charging kit utilizes your pedal power to charge your phone. Charging starts when you cycle at walking speed (6 km/hour) or faster, and at 12 km/hour it charges as efficiently as common Nokia mobile chargers. Definitely a cool and green way to generate power. Isn’t it?
The Nokia Bicycle Charger Kit is easy to install and suits many different types of bicycles. The 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 is carefully designed to withstand dirt, humidity, and weather, with an ultrasonically welded case and clear coating on the electronics. The dynamo is also very robust. The phone holder comes with a transparent bag to protect your phone from dirt and humidity. The charger, phone holder and phone can be removed easily whenever you park your bike.
The Nokia Bicycle Charger Kit is compatible with all Nokia mobile phones that have a 2 mm charging interface. The Nokia Bicycle Charger Kit starts charging at walking speed (6 km/h) and stops when your speed reaches 50 km/h. The total charging time varies depending on the phone and the cycling speed. For example a Nokia 1202 with a 860 mAh battery can be charged with about 20 minutes of cycling at a speed of about 10 km/h. The operating temperature for this charger kit is between -15°C to +55°C.
