“If you ride big distances you’ve probably worried about getting a flat battery on your phone, your Garmin or your lights. I certainly did on the 205 mile ‘Tommy Godwin’ rides we did earlier this year. I took one of these Pebble battery packs with me and it was a literally life-saver.
“I was able to keep my lights charged throughout the day and I was also able to continuously use the GPS mapping function on my Garmin. This battery pack was small enough to sit in a small bag on my crossbar with a short cable transferring power to the units on my handlebars.
“It was easy enough to charge up beforehand, it simply plugs into the mains power with a 3-pin plug and takes a few hours to reach maximum charge. Then it holds enough power to charge up iPhones multiple times with a simple LED flashing display to show how much power is has left.”
“I’ve since started using Pebble off the bike too, taking it on holiday or on work trips to act as a back up for keeping my iPhone or iPad charges. One of the most useful purchases I’ve made this year.”
