I don't fear blackouts when I can generate my own power! Today, Mon Dec 15, 2014 I Generated 110.5 Wh http://www.los-gatos.ca.us/davidbu/pedgen/workout.html COLD rainy day. Of course, I am never cold while I am riding. I charged my eGo electric moped, portable power station, NiMH batteries, iPhone, tablet and mobile phone. I also powered my laptop while I used it to check local weather conditions. Today, Sun Dec 14, 2014 I Generated 110.5 Wh http://www.los-gatos.ca.us/davidbu/pedgen/workout.html Happy Holidays!

I powered my laptop while I charged all my small devices. Today, Fri Dec 05, 2014 I Generated 110.5 Wh http://www.los-gatos.ca.us/davidbu/pedgen/workout.html TGIF - I'm tired after a stressful week.

It's December and it's late evening, and it's 62 degrees F outside. The leaves on the trees fell two weeks later this year. We are heading for the warmest global yearly temperatures on record. So I ride. I power as much as I can - and I'm a lot healthier for it. Today, Wed Dec 03, 2014 I Generated 110.5 Wh http://www.los-gatos.ca.us/davidbu/pedgen/workout.html Tonight I added my Sonicare electric toothbrush to the long list of items I charged while pedaling. Of course, I powered my laptop as well. I use the spritzlet from www.spritzlet.com so I can read web pages while riding hard and not need to interact with a mouse or keyboard. It's a great solution for pedal generator riders! Today, Tue Dec 02, 2014 I Generated 110.5 Wh http://www.los-gatos.ca.us/davidbu/pedgen/workout.html Feeling frisky, I pedaled at a 120 Watt pace for the first 55 Watt-hours. That is a brisk pace! I charged a new camera battery and mobile phone. I also charged the portable power station, my tablet, portable power station, NiMH batteries, and more. It was a great ride!

Today, Mon Nov 17, 2014 I Generated 110.5 Wh http://www.los-gatos.ca.us/davidbu/pedgen/workout.html Nice fast ride. I powered my laptop and read about the California drought. Next summer will be a challenge. At least I don't have to worry about electricity. Today, Sun Nov 16, 2014 I Generated 112.5 Wh http://www.los-gatos.ca.us/davidbu/pedgen/workout.html GREAT ride.

I charged the portable power station, eGo electric moped, NiMH batteries, emergency radio, iPhone, tablet and mobile phone. The pedal generator is running well and the rides energize me for the entire day! Today, Sun Nov 09, 2014 I Generated 110.5 Wh http://www.los-gatos.ca.us/davidbu/pedgen/workout.html Back on track! The eGo electric moped was particularly thirsty, so it took two rides to fully charge it. I also pedaled in quite a bit of energy for the Portable Power Station. I used the air compressor in it to partially fill an air tank which I will use to power a staple gun. Yes, a pedal-powered staple gun!
