Nokia has just unveiled a pretty cool way to charge your cell phone without hitting up the grid -- a bicycle charger kit. All you dedicated cyclists out there may never have to plug your phone into a wall again.
The Bicycle Charger Kit mounts onto the handlebars of your bike and includes a holder for your cell phone. The charger plugs into the phone and then your pedaling does the work. The faster you pedal, the faster the phone charges. At just shy of 4 mph, the charging starts and if you can up your speed to 8 mph, the phone will charge as fast as being plugged into a wall outlet.
This kit is only for Nokia phones, but I wouldn't be surprised if other companies adopt the technology soon as well.
So, whether you're looking for another reason to get on the bike or just searching for an off-grid charging solution, this gadget's for you.
