USB Chargers - 05/11/18 10:31 AM

First of all thanks to Fahrradzukunft [https://fahrradzukunft.de/] for having published and so far shared all the below charts and information.
Said that, due to my very poor German knowledge, I’d appreciate if someone could help me in German to English translation and possibly confirm my “Highlights&Conclusions”
Thank you in advance.



LEGEND
- Ladesleistung in die Akku-zellen = battery charging power [W]
- Fahrgeschwindigkeit = speed [km/h], all data based on SON28 assembled on a 28” wheel
HIGHLIGHTS&CONCLUSIONS: with some models at 20 km/h it seems to be possible to have up to 5.5W charging power to the internal buffer battery


LEGEND
- Max Dauerhafte USB-Leistung = max permanent power at USB output [W]
- Fahrgeschwindigkeit = speed [km/h], all data based on SON28 assembled on a 28” wheel
HIGHLIGHTS&CONCLUSIONS: with some models at 20 km/h it seems to be possible to have up to 5.0W permanent power at USB output


LEGEND
- Wirkungsgrad Akku zu USB = efficiency power_battery/power_USB [%]
- Entnahmeleistung am - USB-Anschluss = power on USB output [W]
HIGHLIGHTS&CONCLUSIONS: with some models at 3W USB output it seems to be possible to reach up to 84% efficiency (QUESTION: is efficiency to be intended as overall efficiency, i.e. dynamo to USB output, or just internal buffer battery to output ???)


LEGEND
- Fahrgeschwindigkeit = speed [km/h], all data based on SON28 assembled on a 28” wheel
- Electrische Leistung Dynamo = dynamo electrical power [W]
HIGHLIGHTS&CONCLUSIONS: with some models at 20 km/h it seems to be possible to have up to 6.5W transferred power from the dynamo to the charger
