Just an FYI, if you have a Deltran battery tender-(and you should) ,the pig tail that hooks to your battery can also be used to plug in their USB charger. Small 1/4” x 2-1/2” x 3/4”, $10 and all you need is your phone cable. Just my 2 cents.

I like that idea. I noticed these come prewired with a battery tender plug by the ignition key switch.

I just got one last month from Amazon, $10.95, with free shipping (>$25) because I also got their voltage meter.

And there is a different branded dual USB + voltage meter if you would like to go with it instead, just not sure what the total cost is with shipping for that.
Only reason I didn’t get it was not knowing the quality.
Certainly more versatility to it.

Is it the pigtail you are talking about?

No, I already had that attached to the battery for my Deltran Battery Tender Plus charger.

First Amazon link above is their USB connector for putting onto the SAE pigtail wires.

Thanks. The link wasn’t opening for me, hence my confusion.
You’re right! I just tried them myself and only get a message saying Safari (my phone web browser) couldn’t open the links. I think that’s because I use an ad blocker app.

Maybe this direct link to Deltran will show the USB adapter. However, $12.95 instead of $10.

Anyway I’m sure a search of your own will locate these things.

Amazon has it for $10.95 and free shipping for prime members
Yep that was it! You might want to check the similar items for that other one I was talking about, $15.95 I believe, dual USB with voltmeter. Yonhan brand.

I was just afraid it might be too cheap quality.
Although it does have ways to mount it, unlike the Deltran one.

Hey all,

I did similar, my 2020 came stock with SAE plug coming off battery.

Bought this SAE-USB adapter on amazon for like $10. I chose this one because it has built in on/off switch directly on it. Held up great. You can get multi port USB as well. I think there were a couple with digital V reading on it that timed out after 10seconds or so as to not drain battery.

Then just wrapped properly zip tied and ran up to RAM mount. Second port was ran to saddle bag for phone charging.

just what I did!

If you want a plug mount on your handlebars, this look good.
This is very similar to what I used.

I hard wired it to the battery, so I don't need to keep connecting to my battery tender.
I initially was afraid it'll brain my battery, but so far, it's working great and no issue.
