How often do you have to postpone a ride to let your phone, lights, speakers, etc…. “charge a little more”?
Riding with a dead phone is risky; there’s no way to call your friends if something goes wrong or if plans change. Riding with dead lights is dangerous (and usually illegal). Having dead electronics is just no fun, and since you’re generating all those watts with your pedals already, Siva came up with the Atom, a handy USB-dynamo-charger!
The Atom mounts easily to the rear wheel of most frames (all of the Pure Fix and Pure City bikes – woot!), powers up as you pedal, and charges your USB-goodies on the way… wherever.
Even better than that, the battery’s removable, so once you’ve arrived at your destination, you can bring it with you and keep the chargin’-party goin’!
It may seem like we’re making a big deal out of being able to charge your stuff, but you’ll understand our excitement the first time you resurrect your phone over a cold beer at the bar, or while you’re busy acing your history final. Or that time you’ll keep the bonfire at the beach alive by spotting your friend’s wireless speaker a little juice. See that cute guy who keeps checking his phone only to remember it’s been dead all night? Go make a friend! Dudes dig the, “don’t thank me, thank my legs” line (note: line untested, results speculative).
Seriously. This thing rocks and it’ll make you wonder why you weren’t harnessing the power of your pedals earlier!
Grab one so you can charge up while you cruise on down.
