Review: Touch Down Wireless Charger

I've been looking for a wireless charging station as iPhone 8+ can also use wireless charging so no more need for cables which somehow always break and die on me after afew months.

Ever since I went to the Apple Store a couple months ago to get my screen replaced after I dropped my iPhone while trying to get a selfie while cycling. Yeah I know what a dumb ass but I was cycling in a park so not like i was riding on the streets. Anyways when I went to the Apple Store I saw they had upright wireless chargers. I had bought a flat wireless charger but was sometimes tricky to get the phone in the right position to get it to charge consistently.

I had always on my mind to find something similar but never found it til today. I went there looking for the normal pre Christmas shop, low and behold there was the Mounted Leather Charger - Business Edition - Black from Touchdown Charging.

As you can see it fits my iPhone easily & still very usable when on your desk. Can still be charging when phone is in landscape mode and still charges though my case. Word of warning though don't have any magnetic cards between the charger and the phone as it could corrupt the data on those cards.+

till the next ride, bee safe.....

More legendary upgrades?

So a few months ago I got contacted by Laurel over at BrommieMods

BrommieMods is a website where you can get Coloured Metal Chainguards And Mudguards / Fenders For Brompton and even arrange complete resprays of your beloved Brompton.

Brommiemods is a small business taking over production and supply of Brompton metal chainguards from Tiller Cycles. It was Graham at Tiller cycles who first invented the metal chain guards and mudguards that are so superior to plastic in both looks and durability. He took it upon himself to manufacture them in his workshop and sell to the Brommie masses. On his retirement, we at Brommiemods are continuing and expanding on his good work. Order your Brompton-compatible chain and/or mudguard with 100% confidence. Satisfaction guaranteed!  

I've had one of Graham's yellow chain guards for yrs.

Anyways I've been using the original Brompton mudguards and over the years I have gone though a few sets of the plastic ones. When BrommieMods contacted me about some new ideas and processes they have undergone with the metal mudguards we had to get something worked out for the legend.

I also had the idea of painting the mudguard stays but BrommieMods had already done something like this  already with a CPT3 project. I still had a spare set of mudguard stays so sent those off to get painted at the same time as the new metal mudguards.

I've had the metal mudguards and stays for a good few months now and ridden in all weathers and conditions. They are TOUGH. I won't getting replacement ones unless I want different colours or something with these puppies.

There are a couple more small upgrades that I haven’t had the chance to install yet but most people wouldn’t even notice unless I pointed them out which I always do when people ask what new with the legend.

As I have said you can approach BrommieMods with any ideas you have and they will see what they can do you get your Brompton PERFECT.

SPOILER: I did get a discount but this in no way changes how I review goods or services. You get honest straight up reviews in my blog ALWAYS!!!
