Ecoxgear has rolled out its new Ecoxpower pedal-powered headlight and mobile device charger for the iPhone, iPod, and other portable devices. The Ecoxpower attaches to the hub of a bicycle’s front wheel, using energy created from pedaling to operate the LED headlight, LED taillights, and a connected USB-charging accessory. It also features an internal rechargeable battery that can power the light for 1.5 hours without riding, a wired on/off remote switch, and an included, water-resistant case that mounts on the bike’s handlebars and accomodates a smartphone or other device. Ecoxgear’s Ecoxpower headlight and charger is available now and sells for $99.
