Firma Dynosys The firm Dynosys is providing with theor lightspin dynamo a totally redesigned Dynamo. From outside you wont see that its output is very constant and precise. If you rotate the wheel you start to feel the difference..
Wolf Steohr and Andreas Hessberg (Uni Bayreuth) developed together with Dynosys kind of a plug in for the dynamo itself plus a holder for me LiIon akkumulator of my Camcorder so that I can charge not only AA Akkumulators but even LiIon Blocks. This is a great help to stay autarkious. The charging module which is another body superwises the charging, so that I have every feature a really good stationary charger has, too. No Akku can be destroyed.
