Most charger products tap into the power grid in one way or another. Even if the device is a mobile recharger battery, it still needs to be filled up through either a USB connection to a computer or directly from a power outlet. It’s quite unusual that we see any other kind of products that take a more innovative approach. The minification of recharger batteries is quite common, but when it comes to pedal power and its way of charging our smartphones, it becomes not so common.
The utilization of pedal power is far from new. For a long time, bicycle lights have used pedal power, and with new and more optimized generators, their output is quite impressive. This form of power generation is the backbone of a new startup which uses pedal power to recharge a smartphone recharger battery. By adding one of these pedal power generators to your bicycle, you will be able to recharge the battery box within just 5 minutes. The charge will then help recharge your smartphone by disconnecting the battery box from the pedal power generator mounted on your bike.
The concept is super simple, but it makes perfect sense in a world where exercise is something in short supply for most people. The mounting of this device on your bike is super simple as well. Simply take off the the rear wheel by unhinging it with the quick release, add the pedal power generator and then attach the wheel again. You’re all done!
The pedal power smartphone recharger is a startup that we here at Bit Rebels think is going to be a huge success. They are looking to raise $85,000 in order to finalize their innovation, and with 27 days to go, they have raise a staggering $63,000. There’s no doubt this will be a successful Kickstarter campaign, and it will also allow you to always have a backup power source to juice up your smartphone. By pledging $85.00, you will get your very own pedal power Atom generator (that’s what it’s really called) when the Kickstarter campaign has successfully ended. I would personally get one of these, I just need to get a bike first.
