I have a simple connector, SAE in USB out. Plugs right in to your battery tender connector. It's the size of a flash drive and take 2 seconds to install. No splicing, no wiring to install!

Go to: americancrossroaders@yahoo.com for more information.

I would like to run a few different things during different situations off that SAE plug. My cell phone (ANDROID with mini usb) and gps (zumo 550). Will that 7.5amp fuse surfice running either one of those? Or is it too much, and cause damage before it blows.

I am an electrical retard.
FYI - the little white cube charger for an iPhone can deliver 1 amp at 5 volts (5 watts). The iPad version is good for 2 amps at 5 volts (10 watts). When the batteries are low, they pull as much current as they can get to charge quickly. By extension, I'd guess your Android phone would pull 5 watts. If you assume a 12volt feed to the USB charger and throw in an efficiency factor, that 5 watts should draw about 0.5 amps from your bike. Your big 7.5 amp fuse should be OK.

Well Gents,

You may want to do the wiring, soldering and splicing on your bike but, I would rather have an adapter that takes 2 seconds to install and when not in use, takes 2 seconds to remove and all traces of wiring from the SAE connector forward are gone from the bike.

Sorry if I posted to an area that offended but, it is a legit adapter.......

on the face of it, it sounds like the fuse is way too big to protect a .750 amp charger...if it were me, i'd install a 1.5amp fuse in the charger's line and then up the fuse on the bike to something like 10-15amps. i'd steer clear of cig plugs...they are designed for loads under three amps( they do have one nice attribute- threr's usually a fuse in the plug to protect the device youre useing)...most compressors draw way more. bmw type plugs and recpticals are built for large loads but tought to justify, since heavy use is so rarely needed & only needed for a relativly short period.

Like said above, we have a vendor section you are most welcome to post in. We do now allow direct vendor spam outside that area of the site.

There are ways to communicate without directly linking your site etc :wink

(That was me that posted the link)
It was a simple two-conductor SAE connector with pigtail wires at a low cost. Someone else later posted saying "are you really sure you want to go with this low-budget item on your bike, where it will be exposed to the weather, etc.? Here's a link to a better one.". Sorry, I don't have that at my fingertips, but maybe if you search the postings you could find it.

Just go to your local auto parts store, go to the trailer area (hitch balls, connectors and such), there you will find the SAE connector that will plug right in. It usually has the added benefit of having 2 of them, just cut the wires in half and you have to of these connectors at your disposal.

Here is Oreilly's part, opps I guess it's an extension... Oh, and you will want to pay attention to the wire colors if you care, one is the opposite.

At my local store they were special-order items. I've been told that trailer /Rzv stores are.a good place to find them.
