Details
Power USB devices using a 3W bicycle dynamo hub from Shimano, Schmidt (SON) or SP and an Igaro D1. Commuters, audaxers, tourers and adventurists worldwide rely on the Igaro D1 to reduce or eliminate the need for mains or battery power. Offering class leading efficiency, compatibility, and construction, the Igaro D1 is built in the UK to an unrivalled specification and comes with a 5 year international warranty.

Efficiency:
The Igaro D1 offers an outstanding 88% end-to-end efficiency rating meaning USB devices power at lower speeds or at faster rates. High efficiency (combined with compatibility technology) is why the Igaro D1 is reputed for powering USB devices when others can't.

Construction:
The Igaro D1 is crafted from a single piece of lightweight titanium just 70mm x 13mm x 8mm in size. The bespoke circuitry housed inside each unit utilizes components rated for a 25 year working life and a -40c to 80c temperature range to ensure operation in any season.

Plastic injection moulding (most Igaro D1 competitors) is fast and thus cheap, while Igaro D1 construction is slow and thus expensive. Unit assembly includes insulating the PCB from the casting, silicone filling the unit (for water ingress and vibration protection), and applying multiple water and flex resisting wraps. Subsequently the Igaro D1 is IP69 rated (it will continue to work while submerged under water and it won't be affected by condensation

Technology:
The Igaro D1 includes over-voltage, over-heat and short-circuit protection. Power continues no matter how fast the operator rides. Digital frequency monitoring enables power at the lowest possible stable speed and prevents connected USB devices switching on/off rapidly at very low speed, resulting in superb USB device compatibility.

USB ports are configured in power adapter mode and feature gold plated connectors and a water draining design. A limitation of the USB design means they won't work in outdoor conditions forever, however Igaro offer a free replacement service (excluding postage) for when the ports fail.

Specification:
- IP69 waterproof titanium body

- Dynamo hub frequency monitoring
- Overvoltage, short-circuit, over-heat protection

ProsBeautifully made
With part of my degree being electronics, I'm a bit of a nerd when it comes to things like this. Dynamo to USB isn't that simple and I wouldn't use some of the cheaper alternatives to charge a cheap USB battery let alone charge my expensive phone and GPS.

However the design of the electronics in the Igaro are second-to-none and the finished package is equally brilliantly executed.

If you have the need for such a device, buy the Igaro. It's really not worth risking anything else.
Very clever and well made

ProsIgaro reliability. made for cyclists designed by a cyclist.
Excellent piece of kit .Igaro D1 Model 5 has two USB that I have found very useful. Igaro reliability and warranty is the best you can get from any device charging equipment..

So why not generate your electrical for your equipment
on your bike with your dynamo, no more battery's. You could say you're going off Grid

After doing hours of research when deciding which USB converter to pair to my SON 28 hub I couldn't make up my mind. All the options seemed to work well with each having either a downfall in someway or reliability issues. It was by luck I stumbled upon the Igaro D1. Unfortunately they we're all out of stock, but after contacting them on social media and receiving a quick response I decided I would wait for their product and I'm glad I did! With the added stability bank I can charge an iPhone and Garmin Edge 100. I am about to ride across Europe for 6 weeks and looking forward to having everything charged up and working. Excellent Product backed by excellent customer service and made in the UK!

ProsRobust, functional, ease of use
I've been using Luxos I'd for a while, I had 3 on 3 bikes on a constant warranty loop. I bought any Igaro as soon as they were launched and have since upgraded the other two bikes.
They're robust, well designed, easy to install and work perfectly.
