If you spend a lot of time on your bike, you might be interested in the new creation from Ecogear called the Ecoxpower. Which has been designed to attach to your bike and provide power to charge both your smartphone and power your lights whilst peddling.
The Ecogear Ecoxpower charger supports both iOS and Android smartphones which are housed in a waterproof touch sensitive case on the handle bars of your bike whilst you are peddling and being charged.
“Typical bike lights have a short life expectancy, most of which are only 10-15 hours or even as low as five if on high brightness,” says CEO of ECOXGEAR, Greg Fadul. “Bicyclist either have to routinely buy batteries, remove the light for recharging, or replace their lights completely. ECOXPOWER is self-powered and with the built-in rechargeable battery, extra costs and inconveniences are non-existent. And if you’re using your smart phone for GPS or music on a long ride, you never have to worry about running out of juice.”
The Ecogear Ecoxpower charger will soon be available to purchase for $99 and includes front and rear lights together with waterproof smartphone case and all cables required to setup the system on your bike.
