Cycle2Charge - dynamo powered USB charger
« on: March 07, 2015, 03:04:53 pm »
Another USB charger designed to fit in your steerer tube in the same manner as the Tout Terrain Plug & Sinewave Reactor, but much cheaper than either of those units.

Having read this, I thought, great - just what I need. Then I realised my bike has a 1" threaded headset and even though I use a Aheadset converter, it still won't fit. So, does anyone have any recommendations for a similar sort of charger that mounts on the handlebars?
I am often asked, what does YOAV stand for? It stands for Yoav On A Velo

One of the linked pages shows it mounted with a strap - looks just like a bell so obviously not for roadies ;-)
