With a new range of BlackBerry smartphone models released recently, came new slimmer batteries, the JM-1 and EM-1.
In line with this, RIM have produced 2 new BlackBerry Battery Chargers that allows you to charge up each of these spare batteries. With the battery being able to hold a charge for up to 3 months, this means that users can always have a fully charged spare battery to hand.
Also with a USB Y-Cable, users can charge both the spare battery and their handset at the same time.
With the battery charger being only slightly larger than the slim JM-1 & EM-1 battery, the equipment is easy to carry about while on the move.
RIM have brought these items together, along with a spare battery, in a Battery Charging Bundle.
RIM have produced a Premium Charger that offers a simple, fast, and convenient way to help stay powered-up and ready when you travel.
It can offer up to twice the charging speed compared to the standard in-box chargers supplied, for any BlackBerry smartphone that has a micro USB connection. Charging a BlackBerry 9780 took just 90 minutes, whereas it can take 3 to 3½ hours on a conventional BlackBerry charger.
The charger is also compatible with the PlayBook, so no need to carry around two separate chargers.
With country specific charging clips, this charger will prove just as useful abroad as well as in the UK
