The Plug III
Eco-friendly power supply for USB devices. Must be paired with a dynamo hub such as those from Shutter Precision and Schmidt, also available from Cycle Monkey.
The Plug III‘s simplicity is outstanding. Unique is the complete integration of the entire electronics, into the TopCap. The electronics are encapsulated with a sealing liquid in a housing completely made from aluminum to protect it from humidity and external impacts in the best possible way.
PAT II technology
The Plug III comes with the PAT II (Power Amplification) technology as a standard. The PAT II technology is specifically made for riders who travel with medium or lower speed and serves now riders who ride fast at high speeds. Better efficiency delivers already at about 12 km/h the full USB power which allows you to operate many devices with an integrated battery directly from the Plug III. The PAT II technology does not change the appearance of the Plug III as it is hidden within the head tube cartridge.
The PAT II technology can also be retrofitted to any Plug II.
Ease of use
The use of the Plug III is absolutely simple and requires no technical knowledge. With the aheadset expander which has a cable channel integrated the installation is simple. This design allows retrofitting many bikes.
The Plug III features
Eco-friendly power supply for USB-devices (GPS, MP3-Player or mobile phones) via dynamo hub
Meets USB specification: The Plug III converts power from an existing dynamo hub into USB 5V standard.
Revised design: full integration of the entire electronics into the TopCap offers a clean bike design, easy retrofit as well as a very good theft protection
Tough 6061 aluminum housing, corrosion-resistant: The tough housing does not only look great, but also withstands serious impacts.
iPhone® support built-in. Plug-in and ride – great handling in combination with the iPhone, because with the Plug III you do not need a special cable
With everything in a simple TopCap installation becomes a piece of cake – just connect the cable with the USB-TopCap and the dynamo hub – it is that simple!
