    I purchased ~10 of these as they seem to be clearing them out and they seem hard to get in the States so thought there may be some interest and I could help out as a newer member of the ADV forums.

    Details on product.


    *Direct connect to 12 VDC system (Input voltage is DC 12V +/-4)

    *Powers down to USB power requirements (DC 5V +/-0.25 and 1A max)

    *Heavy Duty All Weather Design with Zippo Cap Design

    *Easy to open and use

    *Water Resistant, not water immersible


    *Charges: Apple iPhone, Apple iPod, Blackberry, Garmin GPS, Droid HTC, EVO and Vholdr helmet cams.

    Some Samsung products will not work.

    **Jailbroken Apple iPhones may have trouble charging due to operating system charging tolerances.



    *Holes on bracket are 1 3/8 inches apart. Socket is 9/16" x 11/16" x 1 5/8" tall.




    The compact all weather USB single power outlet charger provides a dependable source of power/charging capability for electrical accessories using USB adapter plug. The one piece protection cap is new, attached to the outlet so it is always available, easy to open and visually attractive. The all weather straight cord is direct connecting to 12V power system,
    this system is engineered to power down from 12V to the USB power requirements of DC 5V +/-0.25 and 1A max. Contains a built in automatic fuse that resets itself. Great for all types of motorcycles, cars and recreational vehicles. Mounting bracket included.


    Cable is 72 inches long.


    You can read a review from www.webbikeworld.com on the charger at the following link

    Anywhere in the United States will be ~$7.80 shipping from Canada Post which then transfers to USPS.




    Unfortunately although I am shipping from Canada, shipping within Canada is somehow more expensive.

    Shipping from Ontario to anywhere in Canada, because the unit is ~24mm thick even out of the package this exceeds Canada Posts maximum of 20mm for letter mail and therefore will range from $10 up to $15 depending on where your location in Canada is.

    Example: BC would be $14.18 Newfoundland would be $17 and I believe within Ontario is $8

    I will obviously do everything I can to choose the cheapest form of shipping and will charge actual shipping but will confirm with you what that is prior to shipping.

    If you're around the GTA I'm happy to meet up with you to hand off.


    These are shipped new in package not out of package as my images show.


    I'm looking for $16 a piece plus shipping.


    Thanks.





    EDIT.

    I can fit 2 units in one package with these.

    The weight of two in a package is slightly over the limit for the $7.80 shipping though.

    So shipping for two units is $10.35 to the States.

    Total for one unit shipped is $23.80

    I will discount the total if you purchase 2 units. Total for 2 units shipped will be $40 (savings of $7.60)

    Those look pretty robust. Never seen one that configuration. Looks heavy duty. Would be perfect in a tailbag or tank bag or top box to charge phone while riding.

    Yes.

    I kept a few and am selling the rest.

    I'd like to get $16 each but depending on what actual shipping is to where ever you are located I am willing to work on the price a bit for the inmates.

    I've been looking to purchase that USB power outlet. I contacted two retailers asking for shipping quote but haven't heard back from them. Will you ship to Jakarta Indonesia?.

    Looks to me like shipping would be $10.36 for Small Packet - International Air

    Or $7.60 Small Packet - International Surface (which would probably take 2 months to get to you)


    Don't forget that I can probably get 2 units in the package without paying a second shipping charge.


    I find it funny that the farther away I go to ship the cheaper it is.

    It should be noted that these have a "draw". That is, they consume power even if nothing is plugged into them. If you run these direct from the battery, they will kill your battery given enough time.

    Great option for charging, just run it off a relay.

    Received both units today. It takes about a week from the frozen north to sunny Arizona. These are a great solution to being able to charge my phone on the bike.

    Could be, but I ran them on my R1200ST and GS for years with no issues, and I rarely use a tender.

    Yup.

    I still have 8 of them I think.

    Pricing is still as stated in first post.




    And I also have it hooked directly to the battery with an inline fuse but unswitched and have not had any issue with any drain or draw of power without something plugged into it.
