The juice is loose
You may well be aware that DŌST utilizes a top of the line color LCD display for the various readouts on the bike and your journey. These displays have a variety of features and convenience for all your needs. But did you know it has a trick up its sleeve? The 3.2 multi-color backlit LCD is home to a USB Type A port. Type A means this is the standard size USB connection that works with several devices across the board. This port can be used for charging equipment so we thought we would take some time to give you some ideas and examples that could come in hand so you can get the most out of your DŌST!
Your cell phone
So let’s get the obvious choice out of the way, charging your cell phone. This comes in handy for a number of reasons. A lot of people use their cell phone as a GPS, music player, telephone, and even a fitness tracker. This may make a lot of sense for you if you use any of those features. Simply find a corresponding cell phone cord with USB male on one end and you are good to go! For optimal operation, make use of a cell phone holder mount that can go right up on the handlebars next to the display.
It might sound funny, but I have ridden bikes and talked on the phone before. Wouldn’t be the first time. As a matter of fact, many people do. Wireless headsets can be charged and used for calls. Lucky for us, the ebike has a throttle in case we are huffing and puffing too much!
While the DŌST is equipped with battery integrated headlights in the front and rear, that doesn’t mean that people dont enjoy extra visibility for safety. If you have an accessory light that is USB powered, feel free to charge it during the day to make use of it at night.
This is a fun one I have seen from time to time. Some people will get a small Bluetooth speaker that maybe fits in a cup holder or mounts in other forms. They use the charging to power the speaker and play their music for a fun ride in the sun maybe in the neighborhood or at a park.
A power bank
Maybe you are on the go constantly, a busy day where you can hardly have time to breathe! If that is the case, try charging a mobile power bank while you commute to the office. That way you have portable juice for your phone or other devices late in the day.
As you can see, there are quite a few options out there! This is just a sample, but we encourage you to come up with your own ideas that fit your ride and your personality. We love how this is just another small benefit to the DŌST brand. Little conveniences that may go un-noticed, but once you find out, you are hooked!
