Frequently Asked Questions
I always park my bicycle in the garage, is this a problem?
Not necessarily, the Rydon feature a very efficient solar panel, one hour of sun will charge the battery with approximately 100mAh. The battery has a high capacity of 3400 mAh, so it will need 34 hours to completely charge the battery (assuming there is no more energy left in the battery). Even on a cloudy day the Rydon will still charge a bit. However there are always exceptions, no problem, if the status light start blinking red it means there is only 5 hours of light remaining. When you see this, finish your ride and use a power bank, laptop, phone charger or other USB charger to charge the light. The status light will blink green when the the battery is fully charged.
Is it really theft proof?
The Rydon uses special anti-theft screws, the tool for installation is included. The mounting bracket are made of stainless steel and are very strong.
Can I put the light on another bicycle?
Yes of course, we do not recommend to continuously remove the light when parking. The chance that you forget your light is greater and the Rydon does not has a chance to charge.
Can I put the Rydon behind a window to charge?
It will charge but far less efficient as direct sunlight.
Is the light really waterproof?
The thick metal housing will protect the more fragile components inside. The electronics are coated to protect it against moisture.
What does Assembled in the Netherlands exactly means?
We assemble the light at our office in the Netherlands, we do this so we have complete control over the quality. Our parts are made in different places all over the world, so not every component is made in the Netherlands (which is also impossible). Our goal is to deliver the highest quality product for a fair price.
