Press release   •   Sep 04, 2013 15:45 BST

The ultra-compact CP-V3 Portable Charger gives you portable power to charge smartphones quickly and easily, including Android, iPhone, Windows Phone, and Blackberry® devices.

So wherever you are, you can soon be re-charged and available, ready to make calls, email, text, and share online. Ideal to give you comfort and peace of mind, as that last bar of power is no longer an issue when you need to use your smartphone, and brilliant when travelling or in an emergency.

Ready to use straight out of the box, the CP-V3 Portable Charger has a capacity of 2800mAh and a high power output of 1.5A that ensures a fast recharge of smartphones on-the-go. Based on Lithium-ion polymer technology by Sony, it retains over 90% of its initial capacity, even after 1000 charges.

Designed to be carried anywhere with style

Lightweight and extremely compact in design, the CP-V3 Portable Charger weighs just 84g and measures a mere 19mm in depth (38.8mm x 99mm x 19mm). It’s priced from £29 from September 2013 and available in a choice of three colours – white, turquoise and pink - so everyone can express their style.

Straightforward and easy to use – and to recharge

The CP-V3 Portable Charger comes with a micro-USB lead to charge most mobile devices, including Android, Windows Phone, and Blackberry® smartphones. So if you’re ever without a plug point, it’s no problem. The Portable Charger is quick and easy to recharge either through any laptop or computer USB port, or a plug with a USB port (USB/AC adaptor is available separately).
