Question USB charging plug

...I think I need one on my Burg. So...who has one and how did you do it?

I would much prefer to NOT cut the handlebar plastic if possible.

Don't buy junk and Powerlet has many types that can work from your cig lighter socket or attached to the end of a Battery Tender Plug or a Powerlet heated gear battery connection.

The problem with that one is that cables still need to be routed out of the glove box.

I hope to add an USB outlet to the outside to avoid the thread through issue and also give me easier access to power for charging and powering external equipment. I just need to figure out how to remove the skins to mount the outlet.

If you looked at all the Powerlet Products you see a Power Hub that sits on the handlebars that is perfect for it as well as a RAM mount. Don't buy junk or you will have to rebuy.

I like the waterproof one from BikeMaster. It is flat, and flexible, and you can mount it up out of the way rather than on the bars (I don't want any wires on my bars).

Here is what I had on my last Burgman. As stated before, this was hard wired into the previous outlet in the glove box. I really liked having these two options available.

Bikemaster is also plastic.........if you want something that will last, look over the entire Powerlet line....expensive but quality.

This one may be plastic, but it's a sort of rubberized plastic. I dunno, seems very high quality to me. Had no problem making it 4500 or so miles in mostly rain on my trip to Labrador and back (:

I like it so much that I bought another one to install "on the other side" of the dials, so I have one on each side (see photos above to see what I mean).

It will be a cold day in H!#% before I spend 50.00 on a USB adapter plug. I've been using cheap ones for years with no issues.

I just picked this up and have not mounted it on the bike yet so I will not tell you it's great. However I am REALLY impressed with the mount itself for 15.00! It's all steel construction. I bought it for the cell mount not the usb adapter that's on it. But we'll see how it does.
