After announcing its own 6000mAh portable battery back in early October, Microsoft today finally released the DC-21 to the public.
The Microsoft Portable Power DC-21 external battery is now available in the Redmond firm’s online store for $49.99. For that price you’ll get a 6000mAh battery in green, orange, or white.
Microsoft says that the DC-21 will keep its full charge for “months,” and that after six months, it’ll retain 80 percent of its full charge. It’s also worth noting that you can charge the DC-21 while using it to charge a smartphone, with priority going to the phone.
You can certainly get other, larger external battery packs for less than Microsoft’s Portable Power DC-21, but the appeal of this product is its quality design, bright colors that can match your Lumia smartphone, and the Microsoft name. If any of those features appeal to you, you can snag a DC-21 at the Microsoft link below.
