Transmitter with very low power – Wireless Bicycle Computer with 1.4-inch Display Reviews

posted by Pedrolas on 06/11/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
It works. I use it in a foldable Bicycle so it is good to have no cables messing around when you go into folding, but...
Cons:
Keep in Mind that the max distance between receiver (the screen) and the transmitter is 50cm as it's stated in the user manual. This is a problem in foldable bicycles with small wheels. If you exceed those 50cm readouts becomes erratic or null.
Other:
The battery inside the transmitter is one of those 12v. I don't know how long will be his life, but keep in mind those are expensive batteries.
Bottomline:
Having a wireless speedometer in a foldable bicycle is a good idea, but 50cm as maximum separation turns this device useless for this kind of bicycle.
