Cycle2Charge V2

Meanwhile we are used to navigate with our smartphone or GPS system while cycling. Unfortunately the capacitiy of the accumulator is just too often the limiting factor to enjoy the electronic comfort throughout the journey.

Here Cycle2Charge comes into the game. The charger converts the energy of the hub dynamo and makes it easy accessible through a standard USB-port near the handle bar - a secure source of energy even in the middle of nowhere.

No matter if you want to charge your GPS system, mobile phone or MP3 player: Cycle2Charge offers a maximum of energy already at low speeds but also protects the connected devices at high speeds from overvoltages.

As the Cycle2Charge is integrated in the Ahead headset no valueable space of the handlebar gets lost. Cycle2Charge is small, good looking and a smart turning cap protects the electronic from water and dust when the energy not needed.

The assembly is a peace of cake. Cable, screw, tie-wraps and a detailled mounting instruction are parts of the delivery contents.
