Pedal-a-Watt Bicycle Generator – make your own electricity and live free


This Pedal-a-Watt Bicycle Generator will let you create up to 250 watts using nothing more than your leg muscles and a bicycle dropped into this frame. [Video] That’s enough to power a television, laptop or a call to the cardio department of the nearest hospital. To make the rig work efficiently you’ll also need a PowerPak inverter and battery to store all the lovely hard earned juice you create. Oh and you’ll need a bike of course. Priced at $399.00 (plus $365.00 for the optional Powerpak).

 The Assembled Pedal-A-Watt allows you to drop your own bicycle in the included stand, pedal and create up to 25 vdc at up to 12 amps. The Assembled Pedal-A-Watt includes the bicycle stand, generator, 20 amp blocking diode, adjustment knob and instructions. The Pedal-A-Watt is built with off the shelf components to reduce waste and carbon footprint. The stand is designed to work best with 26 or 27 inch wheels but will work with all wheels greater than 10 inches. Weighs 23 lbs.
