1st State Bikes to introduce USB UPS system for bicycles

1st State Bikes is working overtime to produce an uninterrupted power supply (UPS) system for bicycles. We have prototypes undergoing real time testing as we write. It is designed to work with bicycle generator systems that include front hub, sidewall (tire), bottom bracket, or any other dynamo types that produce 6 Volts AC. The device will convert that output to a clean and reliable 5 Volts DC, suitable for any USB charging or power connection. But that's not all; when you stop for any reason, e.g. at a red light, power remains on for 10+ minutes, usually more depending on how many devices are connected.

Suitable devices include Smart Phones, GPS units, Video Cameras, or anything else that accepts the standard micro-USB connection. Adapters can be used to convert to mini-USB. A 3-way toggle switch allows for the connection of a Dynamo-compatible head/tail lamp. The beautifully wood finished console clamps on to your handlebar next to the stem, and positions below the plain of the bar and out of the way as seen in the photos. Buyers must specify standard or over-sized bar clamp diameter.

We are also working on a non-dynamo, rechargeable Lithium battery system -- similar in appearance to the dynamo -- that will keep the power on long after a device's internal batteries drain down. A package that includes a mini video camera is also in the works. Watch for future announcements.

1st State Bikes has you covered, not only with balanced bicycle advocacy, but keeping the power on! Production is pending. If you are interested in these products, or would like updates on our upcoming Lithium system, email us today at: info@1stbikes.org and we will place you on our first notification list.
