On thing about the Iphone/Ipad charging while using.

if you are running a 1amp or smaller charger ( like most cig lighter plugs) it likely cant keep up with usage with the screen on and apps running, especially radio triangulating apps. ( the cell radio, wifi radio, and screen use the most power typically)

but, use a 2-3 amp charger, and im betting they will recharge while being used.

plug your iphone into your ipad charger and watch how fast it charges, compared to a cig lighter usb charger.

I have Android and a one amp charger and no problems keeping up with the charge.

But every phone is different and the more background apps that are running the more it will discharge. Killing apps will help. Just use the ones you need at the time.

Just my two cents worth.

charging.

my plan is to put this in my tank bag.

or just this part, and hard wire it to a hub.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/DC-DC-Conver...item4170d97a9f


or, if you want 5 amps, enough to rapid charge 2 current hungry smart phones..

A sad time, yet a relief as well. Let us know if there's anything needs doing.

Godspeed Auntie.

Like Charlie said we did have to shut down back ground apps and also when we were going to be on freeway a while we would shut it down and just let it charge.....got hotter than a firecracker once.
