With winter having taken a solid foothold in South Africa over the past few days, the demand for electricity is already seeing a major rise, putting our threatened power grid under more strain – with more load shedding to come.
And winter being what it is, people tend to spend more time at home and indoors where it’s warm and staying entertained with family. Until load shedding hits, that is.
Luckily, it’s not all bad news! HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, sheds light on a nifty little companion to lift the load-shedding blues.
When the lights go out
If you’re not prepared with a backup light, you stand the risk of some really eina accidents. Like stubbing your toe on the corner of the couch as you grapple for the emergency light or having your phone (the screen of which you’re using for light) knocked out of your hand to crash onto the floor as you try to navigate your way to a light source.
This is when you’ll be so grateful for your handy Nokia 105! With a built-in torch, you won’t have to worry about getting those nasty bumps and bruises, as the torch lights the way to your generator, inverter, or backup lights.
And if you do happen to have it knocked out of your hands while trying to get that generator going, it’s OK – built to take on everyday life, the scratch and bump-resistant exterior is built to last – and looks good doing it The Nokia 105’s compact shape is specially moulded to feel great in the hand and easily slip into your pocket when you’re on the go.
Boredom is so 2022
Some of us aren’t so fortunate to be able to have a generator or inverter in our homes for when load shedding hits. So, when the power is out and can’t feed the TV or laptop, how on earth do you stay entertained?!
Aside from reading your favourite book in the clear and strong light of your Nokia 105’s built-in torch, or going old-school with some fun board games, your Nokia 105 has a selection of 10 classic pre-loaded games for your enjoyment - including Snake!
Or use the time for some great catch-up calls with family and friends thanks to the Nokia 105’s all-day1 battery life, you can catch up on Sipho’s drama with his landlord, how Melanie’s first date went, and how your cousin’s new job is going in KZN.
Chill to the beats of local radio
But perhaps you just want to chill out and relax to some cool music, soak in a hot bath with the week’s top 20 hits or put your feet up and listen to the latest amapiano tracks.
Keep up with the football score or listen to your favourite radio shows together with friends and family on loudspeakers or plug in to enjoy music privately. Whatever you are in the mood for, the wireless FM radio gives you a choice.
So who really has the power?
With the Nokia 105 - it’s you! All thanks to the torch, pre-loaded games and great battery life!
Aum Namah Shivay!
Till next time...Aashish
