After CP-V3, which was launched at the end of last year, Sony has now introduced a slightly upgraded version of the portable charger, dubbed as Sony CP-V3A for the same affordable price of Rs. 1,590 INR. The new battery bank is rated slightly higher at 3000 mAh and most other features remain same.
Based on Sony’s Hybrid-Gel technology, the portable charger can retain 90 percent of its capacity at 1000 charges. The charger is available in 6 different colors and, because it weighs only 86 grams and is 19 mm thick, It’s compact enough to easily fit in your travel gear or even pockets. Charging time is 4 hours on AC adapter and Approx 7 hours on USB port. It can supply up to 1.5 A current for up to 70 minutes.
Sony will also bundle a microUSB cable in the box, but you won’t get an AC adapter to charge CP-V3A. The battery bank will be compatible with Xperia devices, cyber-shot, handycam and walkman players. It is available in Black, Blue, Cyan, Red, Purple and White, across all Sony Centers and major electronic stores for a modest price of Rs. 1,590.
