Nokia DC-50 portable wireless charging plate announced for $99


Alongside the Lumia 1520 and 1320 announced in Abu Dhabi at Nokia World, the Finnish company also showcased a few accessories. Amongst them is the Nokia DC-50 portable wireless charger that couples Qi charging with a portable battery giving you the best of both worlds. LED indicators present on the plate will display the amount of charge left in the plate. A travel mode is also built in that will push battery life further. 


The charging plate will let users charge their device just by placing the phone on top of it with its built-in 2400 mAh battery. It supports all handsets that have wireless charging built in as well as those that ship with wireless charging covers. This includes the Lumia 1520, 1020, 925 and Lumia 920. The device will retail for $99 once it goes on sale in Quarter 4 of 2013. Weighing a mere 150 grams and available in a range of colors including yellow, cyan, white and red, the DC-50 should prove to be a cool accessory for Qi enabled smartphones.
