TO GET THE POWER FROM THE DYNAMO TO THE KLITE/USB CHARGER You have 2 options (both are plug and play) Option 1 kLite Single Lead - This is great if you want to keep it really simple, its a cable that runs directly from the hub to the kLite light or USB charger - just pull it out and plug it back in to swap between the 2 Option 2 kLite Simple Bar Switch - If you want to flip between the kLite Light and USB power this is your best option. The Bar switch has 2 extra option - you can choose either Dual or Lights/USB. **DUAL USE** USB always ON is made to run the USB module in the day and night...this way you can hook up the new kLite rear Qube flashing light. Main SWITCH now just turns the front light ON/OFF. (As of 27/11/18 the Qube is in V2 or prototype and is expected to be on sale in the New Year)
**LIGHTS OR USB CHARGE** is the regular setup...lights in the night, charge in the day...for a easy setup that is fully auto with the touch of just one switch.
KLITE USB CHARGER Almost done - To power your Phone, Garmin backup cache battery you will need the kLite USB Charger kLite Dual Output - Plug in your USB device and charge your rear light at the same time.
THINGS TO CONSIDER A dynamo can only output so much power, consider the Trip/Adventure/Race you are planning to use the setup for. If you are doing lots of long slow climbs in the mountains or especially offroad (below about 9kph) then trying to power your kLite Light and USB rear light might not work, consider charging a backup battery during the day and then use this to charge your rear light/phone when it gets dark and you switch to the kLite Light.
What's the Difference between the Bikepacker Ultra Road/Gravel and the MTB version? There is only one difference: The Road/Gravel Light has 2 main beams and 1 Spread beam. The MTB Light has 1 Main beam and 2 Spread beams.
Is the Road/Gravel Light legal on the Roads? Yes everywhere in the worlds except Germany.
Does the kLite work straight out of the box? It depends on the setup you already have, you will obviously need a dynamo to power the light, you will also need a way to connect the kLite to the dynamo, you do this via either of the kLite Switches Handlebar.
Can I run a kLite upside down? Yes, no problem, the beam pattern is the same either way up.
Is the kLite really Plug and Play? with other Dynamos I needed to Solder and heat shrink the cables Yes, Plug the switch directly into the hub, the cable comes pre-fitted with either SON or SP/Shimano connections. Plug the Switch directly into the kLite Ultra or Pro V2. The kLite USB Charger is also the same, the Plug is already fitted, simply plug this straight into the kLite switch.
