    Question - Exposure Revo Mk1 Dynamo

    Hello, so I want to buy the Exposure Revo Mk1 Dynamo bike light.

    I also want to connect my Garmin edge 800 to it, is that hard to do when I also use The Plug II ? How should I wire it? I haven't got any experience with this..

    Thanks in advance!

    Just switch the input power between two plugs, for lights or USB, I offer a pre-made solution if you get stuck.....k

    So I should connect the hub to the plug, and to the Plug II I can connect the Garmin with usb.
    How can I use the Revo Mk1 with usb?
    And can I just connect the Plug II to the dynamo hub, or do I need some different cables?


    I noticed that the Revo Mk1 also has a 'ouput' can't I just plug my garmin into that?

    So from hub to switch, that switches between the 2 outputs, put it near the fork leg, one output runs up the fork to the "plug" the other to the revo.

    The output on the revo is for a rear light...

    Any toggle switch rated over 1A will be fine...

    Here in the pic you can see a regular SPDT switch w center off, this one is not for 'the plug', but for a battery charger and a revo, and mounts under the stem, as a 'spacer', but you get the idea...

    Again, I'm a real newbie on this.. Sorry for that

    So;
    Dynamo -> switch -> The Plug -> Edge 800
    '''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''|
    ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''\/
    ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''Revo

    Is there a switch available that I need?
    What about the wiring; output of the dynamo looks like. Do I need to buy some extra cables?

    Thanks for your helpfulness
