notstrøm powerbank recharges mobile devices while you ride
ZNEX Germany presents notstrøm, the first mobile, weatherproof battery designed for use even on the most challenging bike rides
More and more cyclists are navigating with cycling apps on smartphones, which would be a wonderful thing if the handlebar GPS devices weren't such energy guzzlers. With active GPS navigation, a continuous data connection and a display that remains on constantly, most smartphone batteries are drained in no time at all. That's why many cyclists are looking for a powerful and weatherproof spare battery that they can carry conveniently on their bike.
"Finding a spare battery that can be readily mounted on the bike and handles all the challenges of cycling has been impossible until now," says ZNEX CEO Regina Preusche. "That's why we sat down with mountain bikers and long-distance cyclists and worked on developing a battery that can be attached to almost any bike without tools in a weatherproof design that can recharge a smartphone even in the rain."
Even during heavy rain or in a sandstorm, notstrøm does not let you down.. It is dust-proof and up to IP67 waterproof, which means it can be immersed in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes and still function. This high degree of protection is also offered when a smartphone is charging. No other portable rechargeable battery offers such all-round protection even in extreme situations. This has been made possible because there are USB ports, which tend to let in moisture and dust. Instead, notstrøm is equipped with a high-end industrial plug that reliably prevents moisture and micro-particles from penetrating and damaging the battery.
The notstrøm is 30 cm long and made of sturdy, corrosion-resistant aircraft-grade aluminum that meets the stringent military requirements of MIL-STD-810G standards with regard to resistance to vibrations and shocks. Thanks to its robust design, it handles rides over dirt roads, cobblestones, curbs and potholes like child's play.
The high 10,000 mAh makes it possible to charge USB devices even on longer tours. The powerful 2.1A output port ensures that even extremely power-hungry smartphones or tablets can be charged as quickly as if plugged into a wall socket at home. The mobile power station is run with Panasonic lithium ion batteries that are the best in the world in terms of energy density, safety and cycle stability.
With a fast 1.5A Micro USB, notstrøm can be charged anywhere in the world through a wall socket, your laptop, a hub dynamo or solar panel. A screw-cap keeps the micro USB port safe from dirt, water and dust.
Its exceptional weather resistance makes notstrøm attractive beyond the world of cycling, especially for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy hiking or mountain climbing, horseback riding, caving, kayaking, sailing or who just want to charge their iPad at the beach. Thanks to its slim shape it easily fits into a backpack and weighs just 291 g - light enough to accompany outdoor adventurers on their expeditions.
With 950 lumens through the night
ZNEX offers a small, high-performance bicycle LED lamp that can be docked in a waterproof way to notstrøm battery.
With an effective light output of 950 lumens, the small spotlight provides a true light path into the night, illuminating not only the trail, but also the periphery. Coupled to notstrøm, the OM3 can provide up to 30 hours of illumination, depending on the brightness chosen. Even if the spotlight loses power after four hours at the brightest level, you won't be left in the dark for long. notstrøm has an emergency power reserve that's activated when you switch the battery back on. After activating the reserve power, the OM3 provides an additional hour of light at the lowest level of brightness.
The OM3 can be fixed without any tools to the handlebars, helmet or the notstrøm itself using an O-ring.
