Nokia Bike Charger accessory now available in select markets

Published by at

The Nokia Bicycle Charger accessory is now available in select markets. It can be bought from Nokia's online shops and other select retailers; the Nokia UK online shop is selling it for £25. The accessory uses pedal power to recharge the battery in your phone. It works by attaching a dynamo to the wheel that generates power as you move. Those using the accessory will need to maintain a speed of at least 4 mph and no more than 31 mph to provide sufficient energy for effective charging. 

Charging times will obviously vary, but Nokia say [PDF, data sheet] that a 10 minute journey will produce enough power for 28 minutes of talk time or 37 hours of standby time. The charger will match the efficiency of a standard charger (AC-3) when the bike is travelling at 12 kph or more.

The kit consists of a Nokia Bicycle Charger (DC-14), Nokia Phone Holder for Bicycle (CR-124) and a Bottle Dynamo (also known as a side wall dynamo). The Nokia Phone Holder for Bicycle includes a bag that can be used to protect the phone from dust and humidity. The holder and dynamo can be self-installed using a combination of cable ties, nuts and bolts.

The charger has a 2mm Nokia power jack (as used in most Nokia devices), but you should be able to use the Nokia Charger Adaptor (CA-146C) to convert this to microUSB for devices such as the Nokia N900, N97 and N97 mini.

The Nokia Bicycle Charger can be purchased through the Nokia UK online shop for £25. It is also available in Nokia online stores for Italy, Spain, France, Germany and other countries. Alternatively, the accessory can be purchased from Mobile Fun and other online retailers.
