Keep your smartphone’s battery powered with new USB portable power supply from Sony.



Ultra-portable, easy to use CP-A2LS and CP-ELS offer ‘any time, any place’ power-ups


At the airport or on the beach – make sure your smartphone doesn’t run out of power at a vital moment with two new USB portable power supply chargers from Sony.

The CP-A2LS and CP-ELS are ideal for travellers, mobile professionals – or anyone who can’t afford to be without power on the move. Light and easy to carry, both chargers make charging up your smartphone as easy as plugging into your computer’s USB port or AC plug.

With a generous 4000 mAh capacity, the CP-A2LS packs power for up to two recharges of your smartphone’s battery, either via the included micro-USB cable or your smartphone’s original cable. Four LED indicators give at-a-glance confirmation of the charger’s remaining battery level.

When it’s time to recharge, simply attach the CP-A2LS to its supplied AC input module for quick charging via the nearest mains socket. When you’re done, detach the AC input module and slip the CP-A2LS into a pocket or bag for instant power whenever it’s needed.

The 2,000mAh capacity of the ultra-compact CP-ELS provides power for a single charge of your smartphone. Recharging the CP-ELS is as simple as plugging into your computer’s USB port. Like the CP-A2LS, a micro-USB cable is supplied as an alternative to using your phone’s own cable for charging.

A low self-discharge rate means both models retain ~80% of their initial charging level after 12 months, cutting the risk of being left powerless at the wrong moment.

The new CP-A2LS and CP-ELS Portable power supply chargers by Sony are available from the beginning of November 2011.
