Hub dynamo offers on-the-go recharging and will be showcased at Eurobike

UK retailers sought for phone-charging cycle gadget

Australian firm Pedal Power is seeking dealers in Europe and the US to take on a brand new charging device for bicycles.

The PedalPower+ Universal Cable charges mobile phones and GPS devices while the consumer rides. The ecologically sound device connects to Shimano and Schmidt hub dynamos and has featured on national TV in Australia.

The firm will be at Eurobike next month in Friedrichshafen, Germany.

A similar device was reviewed by BikeBiz in 2000, although the Pedal & Power recharger worked from a bottle dynamo.
