Nokia's New Portable Charger Is Oddly Irresistible

It's normally quite hard to get excited about portable chargers. But, somehow, Nokia has managed to make one that's... strangely irresistible.


The DC-18 is a neat little primary color cuboid packed full of electrons. In fact, it looks a little like the live tiles that Nokia's Lumias sport on their screens—helped along by the fact that the battery status indicator sits on the front of the thing like a little icon itself.

Sadly it only offers a capacity of 1,720 mAh, which means it'll only charge your phone once before you have to top it up via its retracting USB cable. But at least it'll look nice while you do. There's currently no word on pricing or availability. [Nokia via Slashgear]

FYI Gizmodo: Would be nice to give your readers more info, as in the fact that this was not designed for Lumia line, but for Asha 501. This is the reason for low capacity.

If you want higher capacity charger, get DC-16 offers 2200mAh that was designed for Lumia in mind.

Oh and Price: This one has a price tag of 15 Euro.
