New “Wireless” Electric Bicycle Can Charge Your iPhone

February 28th, 2011 by  


Daymak has a new, completely wireless (as in, no wires on the bike) bicycle you may want to check out. There is actually a tiny bit of wiring in the bike, but it is fully sealed in the bike’s front hub. This is the first fully electric, wireless bike in the world.

The bike includes an innovative USB port for powering your iPhone, iPad, Nook, or any other similar device.

Daymak is going to sell the Shadow eBike with 250W or 350W electric motors. These “provide a 12-15 mile range as a ‘pure electric vehicle’, or 22-25 miles in pedal-assist mode.”

Completely recharging the bike’s battery takes 4 hours with a standard 110 outlet.
