USB charging port install pics

I thought you guys would appreciate this... I installed a 5V 3A USB charging port on the right infill panel. The port is waterproof and is using a voltage regulator meant for radio controlled airplanes to provide the juice. An iPad requires 2A to charge, so this is more than enough to power a few devices at once.

I'm not really great with a Dremel so I may try to get a new infill panel and cut it with a CNC.

To keep the wire under control, I'm going to use a waterproof USB extension cable with a right-angle plug to feed into my tank bag.

What about water? I would get some kind of cover for it.

Looks like you have a cap on the top for water but what about on the other side of the panel?

Definitely a clean install though, nice work!

I love having a USB Port on my bike

But I put mine near the handle bars and I have a craddle for my phone to sit in that is very convenient; having a full charge on the phone always while riding and streaming music is great

The port itself is waterproof. The rubber plug on the tether is just to keep dust out when not in use. There's a rubber gasket underneath, too.

I left the two data pins exposed on the bottom in case I find a use for them but a blob of hot glue would probably take care of that.

There are actually quite a few nice USB ports on the market. Powerlet has a couple options and are coming out with more. 3A is a little high, I would not plug a GoPro into that.

Er, it just _can_ give out 3A, it's not _forced to_, is it ?

The slower you move, the more dangerous your bike is... I'll let you work out the conclusion from there

If you find wearing proper gear's too hot, you're just not fast enough !
