well made and compact
I didn't want "another" charging cord for USB, so I has happy to find this adapter for the BMW socket on my R1200GS. The design is compact and "clean" as mentioned in the other review and it's small enough NOT to be eliminated from my packing list. I might not take it on every ride, but it's an excellent option for anything other than a day trip. The product works well and is durable. It charges everything I carry and I already have a CORD for AC applications. A great option for charging on the road.
USB adapter works perfect and has a solid feel to it. I use it to power my cellphone while riding because the Waze Ap on my cell kills my phone battery fast. Waze is a really great Ap to use while riding or driving.
We've tried several brands of USB adapters, a couple of store brands that wired directly to the battery but failed in a couple of months, a couple that attached to SAE cables and worked well, however were fiddly and not a clean solution - certainly a detriment on an adventure bike that is bouncing on rough roads. This unit is nicely designed and simplifies the cabling. It fits in our DIN sockets near the instrument cluster and a single USB cable to a GPS, tablet, or phone is a clean solution.
This is a whole lot better than "Powerlet" brand USB chargers for the BMW DIN socket, that are made in China.
