Nokia fans have some more vibrant accessories they can look forward to, as the Finnish company has introduced two new portable chargers to aid you when on-the-go.
Nokia has launched a new wireless charger - the DT-601- and a new portable USB charger - the DC-19 - to provide some extra power to your mobile devices.
Touting a "young and playful" design just like its DT-900 predecessor, the DT-601 packs in quite a punch. Not only is it smaller, lighter and more portable than the DT-900, but it is also affordable.
"The DT-601 is small and round with identical bright colours to what we see in the Lumia family. Because it's so small and colourful it looks very cute; a bit like a lollipop," boasts Jaakko Huokkola, Product Manager for Wireless Charging at Nokia.
The DT-601 is just 65mm in diameter and is less than 9mm thick. Made out of polycarbonate, the wireless charger is Qi compatible and has a 1.5 meter USB-A cable. It plugs into any USB device or wall plug with a USB-A port and even has a small strap to wrap up any extra cable.
On the other hand, the DC-19 (successor of the DC-18) is perfect for charging your smartphone when it runs low on battery. At just 99.5mm in length and a circumference of 25.4mm, the portable USB charger is quite compact. It has a battery of 3,200mAh and an LED battery level indicator that displays the level of charge. Moreover, according to Nokia, the DC-19 can remain on standby for more than six months and can also be used with any device that supports microUSB charging.
The DT-601 will cost €29 (approximately $39) and will be available in five hues: yellow, cyan, red, black, and white. Nokia intends on shipping the wireless charger in the Asia-Pacific region in September, with Europe and America are set to follow in the coming months.
The DC-19 will also be available in three colors: cyan , yellow and white and will set consumers back by €29 (approximately $39). It will become available for purchase in September.
