Short term review

I purchased the PedalCell Ultimate bundle a couple of months back. The package duly arrived (sadly very slow with the US postal service dragging the chain – PedalCell were very good with their customer support). Fitting As easy as they say. My one comment, the bolts need to be REALLY well secured. They speak about “creaking” or “squeaking” while doing the bolts up. What I would add is if you aren’t hearing that you probably aren’t tightening them up enough. Initial use Again, pretty easy. The power box fitted on the stem readily enough and there is enough room for all the cables. It was plug and play. I did notice that my Garmin 1030 doesn’t like charging directly via the USB C to USB micro fitting, but it does fine with the standard charging cable via the adapter. The USB C to micro USB charges power banks fine. Once you start riding it takes about 30 seconds to get charge in the capacitors before charging devices, then when you stop, the charging continues, till they run out. This isn’t a problem. On a 2 hour ride I put in about 5000mAh into my 20 000mAh battery. Perceived effort The drag is noticeable but not oppressive when charging one device. Certainly way better than a bottle dynamo. I had previously used a bottom bracket dynamo and the resistance is similar to that. I can’t compare it to a dynamo hub. In terms of real performance, it will slow you down about as much as a set of panniers. Charging 2 items has a noticeable drag. On the flat it is easily maintained, uphill not so easy. Weather proofing I don’t expect I will use the unit to charge during rain however if needed I have made a rain cover to keep large amounts of water away from the connection points. This is adequate to keep even heavy rain off the plug points. Overall A good simple solution that appears robust and simple to use.

Great product

Really impressed. PedalCell ends power anxiety - no need for power banks. It appears super well made and easily moved between bikes. I plan to use it on a 6 month tour next year and my recent 12 day test tour proved how good it was. Costs a fair bit to get to UK but money well spent. 5 stars!

Great 1st Impression

I purchased the PedalCell, so that I could switch it between my touring and bikepacking bikes. The installation directions and videos are straight forward. I took it on a 50 mile overnight ..and purposefully ran my bike on very rough singletrack, over logs, short drops and a few steam crossings. I kept the converter in a homemade sealed neoprene cover inside a Jerry Can....no problems. My bikepacking setup is currently a hardtail Mtn bike and the small spacer works best for mounting on the shock.

PedalCell for touring

Have been using this product for a few weeks on tour and it’s been working well enough. My only complaint is the clamp is so large I had to tape both rubber shims together in order to get a good fit to the fork. Maybe you could include a 3rd “extra thicc” shim for those with thin forks.
