Nokia doubles price of bicycle cell phone charger kit

Remember that nifty Bicycle Charger Kit that Nokia debuted last summer? Well, trying to save the planet just got more expensive.

Originally priced at €15 ($18), the bike and mobile phone accessory is now retailing for €30 ($41). The kit includes the charger, the Bottle Dynamo (which brings the juice power from the pedals to the phone battery), and a holster.

While it's not a terrible price, price hikes are always a bummer. Another problem is that this Bicycle Charger Kit still hasn't started shipping worldwide yet as previously promised. That's too bad as this green accessory certainly has potential - at least with anyone that owns a bike and a Nokia phone.
