BICYCLE-POWERED GENERATOR

FOR PRIMARY (OR SUPPLEMENTARY PV) ENERGY


TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK


The best way to keep your lights on,

your batteries charged,

and get some exercise at the same time

during long dark winter days and nights.

  



• Simple rock-solid welded construction.

• 25 years in development and production.

• Vertical stand and rear axle attachment.

• Will not interfere with larger shoes and clips.

• Fits any multi-speed road bike . . .

• with 26" or 27" skinny, smooth tire at 80+ psi.

• From riding to generating in two minutes.

• Power input (yours): up to 100 watts.

• Mechanical and electrical losses equal 25 watts.

• Power output to do useful work up to 75 watts

    (5 amperes at 15 volts). Typical easy steady-state

    output for a normal adult to a preteen is 60 watts

    or 60 watt hours of energy in one hour.


Do not be misled by extravagant claims of 200+ for other bike generators. You are not Lance Armstrong, and the bigger generators require additional input power and cost. A smaller, lighter generator is a more efficient use for your personal energy.


COMPLETE PACKAGE INCLUDES:

• Welded-steel stand and generator.

• 0-10 output ammeter (Amps times 15 = watts).

• 35 ampere blocking diode.

• 15 ampere fuse and battery clips.


TOTAL PRICE: $295 plus $50 for box and ship anywhere in the lower 48 states.
