X-Post from PBP thread...
Right, on a serious note, the bloke I chatted to during the 600 was using a dyno hub to power his lights and electronics. Should I do the same thing for PBP?
I own an Exposure Six Pack which might last the two nights (1200k)?
If I went full battery mode I'd need probably 2 x GPS, 2 x extended Garmin batteries, 1 front light and maybe an extender battery for it, rear lights could just be AA or AAA types.
I'm getting a new set of wheels built anyway so slipping a dyno in would cost me the front hub and the phone adapters but how much would it slow me down? Would it actually power all my shit?
Could I recharge the Six Pack using the dynamo or is it better to use specific dynamo lights?
According to this I'd be adding a couple of watts with lights off and 8 or so with lights on. But what about charging stuff? Can it be used to trickle charge an external battery and then released for lighting or GPS?
