The Nokia Bicycle Charger Kit is Nokia’s latest effort to keep you connected while riding your bicycle. The kit is made up of a DC-14 phone charger, a dynamo and a phone holder. It also has two brackets to help secure its components in place.
The dynamo acts as a generator, which harnesses the power of your pedaling. It attaches to the front wheel of your bicycle. As you pedal, the electricity travels to the phone charger latched on your handlebars.
To activate the charging process, you need to be at a speed of 6km per hour. Nokia advises a speed of 12km per hour or more for better charging. The charging time mostly dependent on the battery model, however. Should you be riding for 10 minutes at 6 miles per hour, 28 minute is likely your added talk-time. As per Nokia, “The faster you ride, the more battery life you generate.”
The phone holder has a protective rubberized material to exempt your phone from getting dirty or banged up. Clear coated electronics and welded casing also help protect your smart phone in style. The Nokia Bicycle Charger Kit is compatible with Nokia phones that have a 2mm charging interface.
The product is set to be available at the end of the year at around $18.
