EN Plug5 Pure
I have questions about technology
No. The Plug5 Pure needs virtually no power if no device is plugged in.
The LED indicates that the dynamo has enough power to supply the USB port when no device is plugged in. When the device is plugged in, a pulsing LED means that the device is supplied with sufficient power.
This depends on various factors, including the hub dynamo used or the wheel size. The smaller the wheel, the lower the required speed. The Plug5 Pure provides from approx.12km/h enough power to operate or charge a Smartphone or a GPS device.
The power provided depends on the speed. The Plug5 Pure provides a maximum of 700 mA from about 12 km/h.
The dynamo should provide a power of 3W at a voltage of 6V. Older rim or tire models and 1.5W dynamos usually do not deliver enough power.
We use a USB-C connector, because it allows a more compact design and the connector can be connected in any orientation.
