Default Charging a cell phone

Hi all, for bikes without a cigarette lighter adapter, do any of you have a solution for charging a device from the bikes battery?

Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls."

Yup , get a powerlet handlebar mounted socket , come in black or chrome , with or without a ram ball mount . I just got one for my bike with the ram ball and can mount my phone or GPS right above the socket and in plain view . Excellent engineering .

Ya Ric , but no Ram ball mount !!! That , is what makes it great . Other then it being completely waterproof , and many other things also . You can also charge your battery right through the plug too . Anyway , I love mine ! Well worth the money . Which I don't have much of really ...

Gotta admit its a lovely piece of hardware Mags, but $145, wowzer! I use the basic Ram ball handlebar mount and that cord as I don't use my GPS much.

If I wasn't frugal, I wouldn't be riding a Victory. If you think I'm frugal, my wife makes me look like a big spender. She's a Coupon Commando par excellance. Stores sometimes pay her to take their groceries away. I guess being frugal has something to do with a meager beginning in life and being taught to save, know the difference between a need and a want, take care of what you have and don't pay more than you have to.
