Noia has developed a dynamo powered bicycle charger to work with its mobile phone devices.
Touted as a great way to power the communications comapny’s Ovi Maps program on the move, the soon-to-be-available kit consists of Nokia Bicycle Charger DC-14, Nokia Phone Holder for Bicycle CR-124, and a bottle dynamo.
Users will get free and efficient charging from cycling as the dynamo starts charging when a bicycle speed of 6 km/h is reached and stops at 50 km/h, matching the efficiency of a normal charger when the bike is traveling at 12kmh. The charger can be fitted onto any Nokia handset with a 2mm charger jack, such as the Nokia E72 or Nokia X6.
John Nichols, head of marketing, Nokia UK commented: "The innovative Nokia Bicycle Charger Kit gives people even more freedom to use their Nokia handset without worrying about battery life.
“A growing number of people in the UK cycle for leisure, exercise or as a daily means of transport so this simple innovation is about convenience and getting the most out of your Nokia while you’re on your bike. It’s also the perfect piece of kit for those that care about the environment.”
The kit will be available before the end of the year in selected retailers and Nokia online and branded retail.
