Like the DC-16 this review is short and sweet, thisÂ Portable USB Charger from Nokia is the ideal choice for anyone who is always on the go – As most of us know, modern smart phones barely last a whole day and often require a top up if you find your office hours or after work drinks extending into the evening or early hours of the next day. This is where the DC-16 comes in handy!
The unit is small enough to carry in your pockets and will charge most phones that feature a micro USB connection – sorry but iPhone lovers need not read on. Its available Â in a range colours and will hold a full charge for up to three months.
There are other portable USB chargersÂ available but we have found one or two of them to cause phones to lock up – these often work out more expensive than a good branded model, like the Nokia version. Usage is simple with a regular USB port on one end and a micro USB port on the other, it comes supplied with a USB type A (normal USB) to Mirco USB cable which allows for easy switching between charging the unit and charging a mobile phone. It also features a click once LED gauge to tell you how much juice is available. So if you need something to keep your phone going for an extra day the DC-16 is the ideal choice.
