Abstract

Collectively, American citizens have been reported to check their phones eight billion times per day. Eighty-five percent of these people do not carry a way to charge their phone when they are out. Studies show this is due to the inconvenience of having to remember to not only charge their phone, but also carry an alternative charging method.Creating a new alternate charging method that used the power of a turning bike wheel would ease the inconvenience of being stuck with a dead phone while out while also encouraging people to ride a bike more. This source of renewable energy is also environment-friendly. The design solely uses the power from the turning bike wheel and produces no harmful emissions that could hurt the planet.
