A neat little device charger

Maybe old news to some.

An $11 device charger. From a reputable company & works a treat.

I'm actually planning on picking one up very soon for keeping my phone and SMH-10 charged on the road on an upcoming trip.

The company also makes a digital voltmeter that plugs in. Handy for checking the charging system.

I have had one in my power wired tank bag on the GS for over a year. Just don't leave it plugged in and "Hot" it will drain your battery! Even without a device charging!

Works great!

What are those mirrors from? They look sturdy and are larger than most.

What is the output of the Battery Tender device? I recently had my Kindle go TU on me, and the salesman at the electronics retailer mentioned that usb charging devices have different outputs, and if it was too much it could have destroyed some of the electronics.

I don't know from electricity much, but my usb chargers (wall warts) were .8, 1.0, and 1.8 watt. Perhaps someone could clarify if it is possible to overcharge a device by using the incorrect 5v. output from a USB Charger. Would hate to see someone ruin expensive electronics without this info.

If the devices processor is working properly it should regulate the charge internally only taking as much power as it can use.
