Trek Travel’s Traveling Di2 Powerstation
What are you to do when you have an entire fleet of 2013 Domane 5.9s and Madone 6.5s that all run on Shimano Di2 drivetrains? Build a 22 battery portable charger in a gun case, that’s what. At least that’s the solution that Trek Travel’s logistics manager came up with. The case allows for all of the batteries to be charged simultaneously, and since each charger only draws about .5 amps of power, it apparently won’t trip any circuit breakers. And I thought my battery chargers were organized…

Two Belkin power strips offer surge protection for the entire array as well as the ability to only plug in one cord.
Given the battery life of Di2 batteries, we’re assuming this isn’t for every day use, but when you run a travel company with people depending on your bikes it’s better to be over prepared.
One power strip plugs into the other, and the whole lot is then plugged into an outlet via one cord.
