Charge Your Phone as You Pedal


----------------

This BikeCharge Dynamo thing looks pretty cool, but I wonder if the wire that comes with the iPhone is long enough? Are Android mobile cords long enough for this?

  • 3W 5.0V DC output.

  1. Well, considering Android cables, unlike those for Apple devices, actually follow an established standard (Micro USB), for which cables are available in pretty much any length, including several of variable length, yes, they are long enough.

  2. mi calculator came with a micro usb 2 meter cable, and it fits in my phone, so… yeah, android device cables will work perfectly

  3. You can get USB extensions… but I'd be a bit concerned abound snagging the wire on something. Good idea in principle.
