Nokia DC-16 Portable USB Charger

We have seen lots of portable USB battery pack thanks to the short battery life of smartphones. But none of them are as cool looking as the Nokia DC-16 Universal Portable USB Charger.
I guess Nokia is trying to tell you that you need a battery pack that matches the colour of your Nokia Lumia 800.

Looks aside, the Nokia DC-16 has 2200 mAh battery capacity. Lumia 800 has a 1450 mAh battery, which means you can roughly charge 1 1/2 times with the Nokia DC-16. But the Nokia DC-16 is not just for Nokia phones. You can use it to charge any devices that uses USB cable for charging. That means you iPhone, Android Phone, Bluetooth headset, Walkman etc etc can all use the Nokia DC-16 without any problem.

I like the fact that the Nokia DC-16 recharges using a MicroUSB port. Most of the battery packs out there in the market use their own proprietary charger and its quite troublesome to bring an extra charger just for the battery pack when you are traveling.
No pricing and availability date yet.
