USB charger. Gold!


So I called in to see my mate Gav in Wallan. (He’s the kangaroo hospital guy for those of you who’ve been following the blog a while).

I wanted to fit a USB charger and cigarette lighter socket to the bike. I didn’t want to run off the ignition as I want to charge some items when the bike isn’t running. The USB socket pulls power all the time, so I wanted it switchable.

I ended up with a really neat installation, switched and fused as per the picture. The other side sports a matching cigarette lighter socket, and the switch is a 3 pole unit switching either socket on.

Thanks Gav. Shortly after the speedo died 😦 a new cable is on the way. I mustn’t forget to record the official mileage at the official start!!

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
