I'm trying to figure out a way to generate and store power using my bike while I travel.
Has anyone heard of a reliable or tried and tested system for doing this?
I like to keep in touch with friends via sms text messaging, but on my last trip I found it difficult to find batteries to charge the phone.
I'm currently looking into the possibility of using a hub generator to charge standard rechargeable batteries, which could then be used to charge the phone, although I would prefer to be able to charge the phone directly (also hopefully my digital camera).
I would be using 2 hub generators, one on the front wheel and one on the trailer wheel.
If anyone has any experience or knowledge of an available system for generating and storing power on a touring cycle I would be very grateful if you would let me know the details.

Hi Rob,

I don't know if you can read german bu the 'technicians' of this website have recently developed a batterycharger. It will work with a hub dynamo or a conventional rim dynamo and is (depending on the contacts being used) able to charge most types of batteries within 6 hours of cycling laugh

Here is the link: http://www.forumslader.de.vu
The site should be updated within the next weeks with pictures and so on. The test rides were successful smile
Look under 'Downloads' for a list of components and the electric circuit layout.
If it is possible to use your mobile in foreign countries I don't know, it depends on the frequency the mobile uses...

Cycle the world,

Thanks Marc,
I can't read German, but I'm sure Babelfish will do a good job of translation.
I use a registered "pay as you go" standard UK mobile phone. The phone company has my bank details and I add credit load as necessary.
Works well in Europe, but gets more expensive the further you get from home.
Enjoy the ride

Hello Rob,

without being too intimate with the technical details, here are my two cents:

The british design seems tempting, I´ll give you that, but do consider the size of the box....

On the other hand http://www.forumslader.de.vu/ hasn´t got much online right now.

To get an idea go to downloads / Beschreibung von cyclist.

Since I v-e-r-y much doubt that Babelfish will be of any use due to the very technical nature of that document, here is my suggestion.

Why don´t you send Makus i.e "cyclist" a personal note?

I always found him to be very helpful!
Grüße, moogley
