car charger

Your Windows Phone devices comes with some pretty stellar options for car navigation software. If you’re in the Lumia family you’re rocking out with Nokia Drive, otherwise you’ve got solid options which you can read in our recent roundup of navigation apps for Windows Phone. But what do you use to keep your phone locked and secure in your car? We’re been big fans of ProClip for a long time. So we’re super stoked they now carry phone holders for both the Lumia 928 and Lumia 1020.

Anyone with a Nokia Lumia 720 or higher should know by now the value of Qi wireless charging. Built in to some Lumias, optional backplate for others, what many dismissed as a gimmick has turned into a way of life for converts. Quite a few of you are even down on the Lumia 1020 because you need an optional back cover to enable the Qi. But from charging plates, to stands to speakers, Nokia has been slowly growing the Qi ecosystem and we like it a lot.

Today, we’re taking a look at the Nokia CR-200, a wireless Qi enabled car charging system for your Lumia (or any Qi enabled phone). The product retails between $75 and $100, depending on where you go, and while that is certainly a lot of money to charge your phone, like all things Nokia this is one top notch accessory.

The Nokia CR-200 Wireless Car Charger is a nifty way to keep your compatible Lumia Windows Phone juiced up in the car without the need for twisty cables. We've eyed the new charger since Mobile World Congress and it looks like it's finally going to hit store shelves. At least with one retailer.

Clove UK is noting inventory for the Nokia Wireless Car Charger is due on June 14th with a price tag of 45.83 excluding VAT and delivery costs (about $71 US).

The charger also features NFC support which will allow your Nokia Lumia to launch predefined apps such as Nokia HERE when placed in the charger. It's a nifty device and for ordering information, you can head over here to Clove for all the details.

We've experienced Nokia tease and show off its upcoming wireless charging car stand (the CR-200), with the most recent sighting at the Nokia Lumia 925 and Lumia 928 event in London. We also got to check out Nokia's docking app that would launch through NFC as the Lumia Windows Phone is inserted into the stand. Today we're pleased to relay news that this very product has now passed through FCC.

Own a Windows Phone? Own a car? If the answer to both is yes, then you need a car charger. If you want your car charger to stand out from the typical coiled chargers, take a look at the TYLT Band Car Charger.

The TYLT uses a half inch wide flat band instead of the traditional coiled, springy cord you'd find on most chargers. To add to the TYLT's ability to stand out, the charger comes in four colors.

If you've been wondering if the Nokia wireless charging pad would make for a good car charger, take a gander at the above video. MakeIt Diy is offering a "do it yourself" guide to converting a charging pad into a car charger/cradle.

The charging pad is held into place with a Garmin Nuvi vent mount and hard wired into the car's fuse box using a "add-a-fuse" attachment that can be picked up at most automotive stores.  You'll need to glue a mounting plate to the back of the charging pad to mount it to he vent mount.

To better hold the Windows Phone in place, neodymium magnets are taped to the charging pad and inside the skin case on the Nokia Lumia 920. It's not a bad solution to hold you over until Nokia releases a wireless charging cradle for the car.

Review: Griffin PowerDuo Universal

If you are a regular reader of this site, chances are you are both a Windows Mobile power user and a gadget fiend. If you fall under either of those categories, the conundrum of keeping your devices charged while still having the convenience of a portable device can be a hassle. More often than not, our device comes with a single charging solution for use at work or home.

Enter Griffin’s PowerDuo Universal charging solution. Griffin gives you the best of both worlds, offering a single solution that gives you a generic power source (through a USB port) in both a 12v car charger (AKA PowerJolt) and 15 amp charger for home or office use (dubbed PowerBlock). Both the PowerJolt and PowerBlock come in this single package for $31.95.

(This will even work with non-Windows Mobile devices, like Phil and Mal’s favorite, the ZuneHD; hence the use of the word “Universal”.)

For more pictures, and the full review, hit the break.
