More cool Nokia gear

by Volker Weber


The current Nokia design is working for me. On an emotional level it all screams "you want me". This is a 2200 mAh portable charger and weighs only 75 grams. It's supposed to charge everything that can use a USB port as charging source.

I am sure the BB 9900 will find whatever excuse not to work with this. It hardly works with anything non-BB...

I have a feeling it is going to work, since the BB9900 also charges with my Nokia charger. But I will ask Nokia for a sample and test it.

It is kind of ridiculous for something that charges over USB to be picky about the stuff that is on the D- and D+ lines. BBs wont charge with a certain configuration, iPhones/iPads will only charge full power when D+ is some special value and D- too. And some other devices think they are on real USB when inserted in an iPhone compatible charger and only charge with 500 mA instead of 1000 (like it normally does). This sucks ;-)

I have a simple LED light which charges over USB, it draws as much power as it can get and then it's the hosts problem to deal with it. No charger on this world should have a problem with that behaviour ...

P.S.: 2200 mAh is too small, since it will only charge a phone once.

The official Nokia site says it's a "2200 mA lithium ion battery". Do they really mean "2200 mAh", that is the battery's capacity or do the really mean "2200 mA", that is the battery's current?

And is there any information on the price? The official Nokia micro-USB cables are ridiculously expensive...
