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

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.

Wise words my friend(coming from a financial retard).
That is probably the most important thing that a screwl could teach a student, REAL WORLD ECONOMICS.
I am learning the hard way and it has cost me a lot of grief and money.cheers

Batman,
A DIY option would use your battery tender connection (if equipped). I got a plug to mate to my battery tender connection at radio shack and soldered it to a cigarette lighter pigtail. Had that rig on the sportster, it's in the garage collecting dust now. New bike has plugs like I got ugly... Everywhere:p

If I was Emperor of America, I'd mandate that money management be taught from preschool through high school so that everyone will know everything about interests, profits, investments, etc.

Credit card buying (not debit card--no protection) is OK, as long as the monthly statement is paid in full.

I used the kuryakyn USB plug to charge my cell and GPS on my jackpot. Only $45
