We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock.
- Never worry about your smartphone or GPS running out of juice. The ECOXPOWER keeps your smartphone or GPS charged while you peddle. Once speeds reach 3 mph the charger will begin to charge your device. Charging times vary based on your speed.
- This state of the art Dynamo charging system connects to your front fork and uses the force of your wheel as it turns to charge. The ECOXPOWER will keep your USB device charged and also lights your way via the integrated front and rear facing lights.
- The internal battery has 700mAh capacity. At 3 mph the charging system will begin to power any standard portable USB device ( iPhone, GPS, Galaxy 2,3,note, Blackberry etc) . It takes approx. 1.5 hours at 12 mph to completely charge the internal battery.
- The integrated front light is 1w 80 LUX white LED and there are 2 rear S/B Red LED's. The lights can be turned on / off either on the charger or via the wired handlebar mounted On/Off switch.
- What's in the box: ECOXPOWER USB charging system with integrated lights, water resistant touch screen case for your smartphone/GPS, handlebar and fork mounting hardware, USB converter cable, Allen key to adjust mount for various hub sizes, and manual.

Update: I have returned this item for refund. The increase in rolling resistance was unacceptable for my use, so I did not evaluate the charging aspect.
Mounting was a bit of a pain- the promised washer was not included with the kit. Hmmm. Then I noticed one of the 3 screws for the mounting bracket was missing. Hmmm.....
I got it mounted finally (after a trip to the hardware store to buy the missing washer). Noted that it took a good deal of energy to turn the crank. I then adjusted the lamp angle using the set screws on the swivel plate.
As I started riding this AM, it was evident that the generator was charging (light worked and it could charge my smart phone), but them the light/generator unit started to gradually tilt forward, and as it did, it separated itself from the power plug/cables. Bad news...cable hitting spokes = danger of unintended front wheel lock-up.
I re-aligned and re-tightened the light, but it angled forward a second time once I started riding again. Finally I let it be, and disconnected and taped away the cables. 3 miles later on, I hit 3 typical road bumps, and the whole light/generator unit snapped off the swivel plate (broken set screws) and hit the road.
This unit was a good idea, but poorly implemented. Machining of the mounting bracket was incompetent, and the set screws they used were not up to real world stress.
1. the unit is heavy
2. it takes a good bit of torque to turn the generator
3. quality control of manufacture and packaging is bad (missing washer and screw)
4. machining and set screw design (or implementation) was faulty for the unit's mount to the swivel plate, and it failed.
5. Such failure is potentially catastrophic, as loose cables near front wheel spokes represents a real risk of accident
I was not impressed by customer service at Gizmos for life, and i did not think that Amazon followed up expectantly when i told them i was returning the item.
