    Default Nokia launches new Bicycle Charger Kit


    Providing free and environmentally friendly electricity for mobile phones, 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 handset through the standard 2mm charging jack used in most Nokia mobile phones. Lambeek continued, "You must look at a number of things when it comes to power management - such as ensuring the phone's operating system is as power-efficient as possible. Now, with our innovative bike charger, people get even more freedom to use their Nokia without worrying about battery life. Bicycles are the most widespread means of transport in many markets around the world, so this is just one more benefit to be gained from an activity people are already doing. This is a great solution to a real challenge, whether people will use it due to limited access to electricity, or to be more environmentally responsible." The kit will be available before the end of the year in selected retailers and Nokia online and branded retail.

    Very cool! I had one from Orange on my bike, but it didn't work. I will probably buy this when it hits the stores and annoy the shit out of my gf with my new so-called green behaviour .

    according to BBC:
    "(...)
    Nokia said charging times will vary by speed but a cyclist completing a 10 minute journey at 6mph (10 km/h) will produce enough power for 28 minutes of talk time or 37 hours of standby time.
    (...)
    Nokia said the charging kit will be available through its stores worldwide by the end of 2010. Prices will vary by market. In Kenya, where the kit was first unveiled, it will cost about ú12.50 (15 euros)(...)"

    Wow this is very clever! Why haven't anyone thought about this earlier? makes a lot of sense to get three major advantages from doing just one thing: getting in good shape by biking, recharging your phone and being environmentally responsible.

    Ohh... Classy rubberband over the screen

    Good idea, but the holder could need some work.

    Actually I have one since five years, but it doesn't work on my nokia's, plus it doesn't have a holder.
