Bicycle USB Power Charge Hub – the box you need to keep your gadgets happy on the road

There was a time when a bicycle was a bicycle, but not any more. Nowadays they can hold enough high tech to embarrass a time lord, especially when you’re using them for serious stuff like commuting to work every day. You need a phone charger if you’re using it as a sat nav, a computer for logging trips, and there’s lighting to consider and maybe other accessories like speakers which may need charging up at some point.

This Bicycle USB Power Charge Hub is a single box which delivers juice from a standard bike dynamo (which you need to supply and fit) to all your gadgets. Just connect up the dynamo to the correct wire, then fix your lights and gear to the other wires and you’ll be good to go.

Unfortunately you can’t keep your lights on and charge at the same time, which we suspect has to do with the max power output of the dynamos, but there’s a handy switch on the box which lets you turn the lamp on and off as needed, so you can set things as you want during your journey. We suggest light takes precedence over charging at night! Priced at £29.99.

  • The daily commute wouldn’t be so much of a problem as I can charge up again at work, but recording a track and using the SATNAV software and camera when out for the day does tend to drain the battery quickly.
    30 quid is a bargain compared to what I’ve seen so far.
    Thanks for the tip.
