This review is from: Pedal Juice - BICYCLE MOUNTED PHONE CHARGER - iPhone & Android Compatible - Secure Handlebar Phone Holder (Electronics)
First the mobile phone holder - installing was a pain - the frame on my mountain bike isnt particularly large for a mountain bike but the design of the fittings meant I could not mount this with the screws provided nor the hook and hinge that you are meant to use on one side of the fitting. Fortunately I carry a big supply of cable ties of differing lengths and thickness and was able to secure the mount to my handlebars securely using them. The mount for the USB plug in is somehow meant to fit beneath your handlebar mount using the supplied fittings - never in a million years! Had to secure this to my frame instead, again using the cable ties I had (they only supply you with one of these by the way!).
So, the mount in place I then tackled the dynamo. Well it wouldnt fit on the front forks as the fastening arm isnt that long (and again I think my forks were a tad too thick for the fitting anyway), so had to mount on the rear forks. Not a problem, went on easy enough, and just wrapped the electric cable around the frame between that and the usb connector (there is plenty of wire so you shouldnt have any problems with reach). However, the power output seems poor from the dynamo - okay I was riding off road and as I'm not the fittest or fastest around I was only averaging 10mph, but it certainly doesnt produce enough juice for my Windows Phone to be able to charge AND run any power hungry applications (such as my location tracker) - and once my battery had totally died on me it just couldnt generate enough power to even get it restarted.
I think that if you want to charge your phone with this you need to be going on a long ride at a fair pace and have no applications running.
