    It arrived today. I never got the Endicia notification, although I have gotten a couple of those from other vendors in the past.

    It shipped Thursday morning. I was testing a new email ship notification function in the Endicia software, but have now figured out how to activate it.

    Cheers.

    Got mine today:D .

    I didn't realize the USB thing was a Napa part, but it was still handy to order it from here and get the Powerlet plug in one place.

    It says 'Not compatible with Motorola devices'. I know my previous phone (Motorola W755) was picky about what USB it could charge from. It'd charge fine from my Linux PC, but I needed to download special drivers to use it under Windows. My Droid is plug & play with both so I suspect it'll work fine with this USB socket on the bike. Any idea what Motorola does to make their USB requirements so special?

    I was going thru the shipping process so fast I missed your quantity. I'll send it out Priority immediately. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    It showed up on Friday. I wired the cord up to a set of Anderson Powerpole connectors (I have matching ones in my tank bag). Works great! Now I can charge my iPhone in the tank bag.

    Just ordered one for my GS. Looks like a great way to recharge an iPod.

    Steve,

    Great fast service and a super accessory with a variety of uses. It will be presented this Thursday as a consumer interest item at the monthly meeting of the Chicago Region BMW Owners Association. Thanks for bringing an innovative item to the market.

    'Not compatible with Motorola devices'

    Need to verify if this correct or not. Not that it states it but whether the statement is correct. My phone is motorola env3 can anyone confirm this will charge it or not? :ear

    Thanks,

    So are these compatible with Motorola phones or not? I'd love to have one but not if I can't use it. I have a generic 12 volt - usb adapter that I use in my cage with a generic cable that works but someone stated this device specifically says it's not compatible with Motorola :huh
