Luminoodle and PowerPot

by 1

On most rides, lighting and keeping gadgets charged aren’t much to worry about. When you’re camping, bikepacking, or just that person in the pits keeping keeping someone topped up with gels during the Strathpuffer, here a couple of things that might help you survive the night.

The fun-to-say Luminoodle takes some pretty standard looking flexible LED strip, and puts it in a waterproof silicone case, making it useful for campers, commuters and mechanics alike. At 180 lumens (from $19 and up), it’s not the kind of light you’d want to scream down a trail with, but it’s useful and packable for any trips you might be going on. At the time of writing it’s shot way past its kickstarter goal, and with a few weeks to go there’s still time to get one.


The PowerPot is a thermo-electric saucepan with a USB socket and flame proof lead. It says it’ll charge your phone in 60 – 90 minutes, so we guess that’s either a lot of camping gas, or they’re including firewood collection in that time…

David started mountain biking in the 90’s, by which he means “Ineptly jumping a Saracen Kili Racer off anything available in a nearby industrial estate”. After growing up and living in some extremely flat places, David moved to Yorkshire specifically for the mountain biking. This felt like a horrible mistake at first, because the hills are so steep, but you get used to them pretty quickly.

Previously, David trifled with road and BMX, but mountain bikes always won. He’s most at peace battering down a rough trail, quietly fixing everything that does to a bike, or trying to figure out if that one click of compression damping has made things marginally better or worse. The inept jumping continues to this day.
