Nokia Portable USB Charger DC-16 - Photo Unboxing

"Carry a power socket in your pocket". Modern smartphone batteries can be pretty poor if you use them to their full potential so it's often wise to carry a bit of extra power with you. With a holiday coming up I thought it would be wise to invest in a portable charger to help keep some of my gadgets going throughout the day. After looking around I settled on the Nokia Universal Portable USB Charger DC-16 as not only did it look good and offered a decent amount of power (2200mah) but was also priced reasonably too (£20 in UK). The DC-16 can charge any device that uses a USB cable for charging, even fussier devices that need high output chargers. Now for the pictures:

Compact classic blue box, I like the tagline "Carry a power socket in your pocket".

The colour of the charger is shown on the side, I chose cyan, again.

Rear of the box and the slide out tray.

This is it, charger, short USB cable and instruction booklets in many languages. 

At only 120mm long the DC-16 is easy to carry in the pocket or a bag.

Charger and cable together, you can use your phones cable if you need a longer one.

Putting a bit of juice into the Nokia Lumia 800.

One end has a standard USB port for connecting any USB device.

The other end has a micro USB port for charging the DC-16. The four dots are lights that show the charge level when the battery icon is pressed.

Here are the lights, they also show during charging, flashing one by one. When all stop flashing it is fully charged .
