Okay, this seems like it will be a minor saga … I have received the awesome Sinewave REvolution.
I was seriously concerned about installation, especially since I don’t have the connector thingies on the web site … but… I dropped in at MakerSpace. SOldering and splicing are their middle name. (Note to self: BRING BIG GIRL READING GLASSES. ALWAYS IF YOU GO TO MAKER SPACE BRING BIG GIRL READING GLASSES.)
On their website a recent user notes that it took “no special skills” to install — welp, in my mind, soldering and splicing are special skills with special tools… but you’ve probably got a MakerSpace near you, eh? Or a Scout-Of-Some-Sort Crafty-Type Person? Because those types of people *love* helping you with a really COOL USEFUL gadget for to charge things via USB port from dynamo hub.
NOw, the only thing I need to do is FIND MY GPS and/or figure out how to mount my cell phone to the handlebars… if I don’t figure out the handlebar bag by Friday I’ll spring for a phone mount from Champaign CYcle.
It rained on the thing good and proper today. I do believe it’s waterproof. (The MakerSpace folks did suggest that we install it “facing down” anyway. I hope — but am not certain — that I would have thought of that myself…)
Pics soon but … it’s raining and I need to find the GPS…
