Hector R: to keep phone charged for GPS usage Apr 8, 2014
T A: Recharging stuff on the go is becoming a necessity for me. Mar 31, 2014
Kent B: Enables you to make more use of a Battery Tender wiring harness (or a Gerbing harness if you buy the Gerbing SAE adapter) that you already have connected to your bike's battery. Mar 31, 2014
David S: I use this in my tank bag which is wired with an SAE pigtail so I can charge my iPhone and iPod while I ride, it's great and doesn't add any additional unnecessary wiring to the mix. Mar 27, 2014
Peter D K: It is super cool. I'll be able to charge my cell or nexus while riding. Feb 17, 2014
David P: To charge Cell Phones and Accessories Feb 15, 2014
Michelle R: Although I can't testify to durability, this USB adapter puts out 2.1 Amps - better than anything else on the market at this price and size. Feb 11, 2014
NOAH K: I already have a sae battery charger cable attached , so it seemed like a simple option to attach my cell phone charger, which is mini USB.
Will try to run it up to my tank bag..haven't gotten it yet, so can't comment on quality etc...

Hans K: I needed a USB and I've been happy w/my Battery Tender charger, so I figured I'd try another product of theirs. Jan 27, 2014
Loranzy N: It is stream line and better fits my needs vs the cig style 12v I have currently. Also plug and plays into the current Batt tender harness I have on the bike. Jan 23, 2014
Dennis S: I bought this because it can plug straight into an existing line on my bike. I can use it to charge my gps and helmet headset. At this low of a price, it's guaranteed that my ride won't unexpectedly come to an end over a dead battery. Dec 22, 2013
Konrad S: less expensive then other options on the market Dec 18, 2013
Robert M: charge phone, gps, and scala communicator. Nov 21, 2013

Brendan M: Either/or actually, but only as long as the bike is running. Otherwise battery drain is possible depending on the load you are putting through it. I usually just keep my phone plugged in since I am running bluetooth to my sena and gps on the phone and data for google maps. It keeps the phone from draining and I can usually get eight hours of riding keeping the phone around 80%. Everytime I turn off the bike, I disconnect it though. Jan 8, 2014

Brandon H: I haven't used it yet, but I don't see why you couldn't use it while riding. Depending on your where your plugin is located or if your USB cable is long enough I could see using it to power a GPS device/iPhone Dec 9, 2013

Barry H: Hello Brian,
I purchased this as an emergency back up. I plan on hard wiring a USB port just as soon as I can. Having the battery tender wire there is a plus.

Robert M: Both but only for my communicator when the bike is off so I don't have to worry about a dead battery. Obviously my bike is off when I'm using the tender to maintain charge also Dec 9, 2013

Jason O asked: I just purchased this today (haven't yet received it), and was wondering what others are thinking as far as running a standard USB cable off the pigtail. Any concerns of melting by running the USB cable near the engine? I'm planning on running mine up to my fork bag on my Monster and tying it up as good as I can so it's not sitting on the engine, but was wondering if anyone has found something like a "high temp" USB cable. Thanks! Mar 18, 2014

Mundy M: Jason, I have a 2007 Monster and ran a Battery Tender 48" battery lead all the way up to the bars then put an SAE Y cable into my tank bag. I purchased 2 of these USB adaptors that hook to the Y cable inside of my tank bag. It works perfectly. These do not get hot and the connection stays tight. I charge a Google Nexus phone and an iPod while riding.

As far as a high temp USB cable, I have not seen one. You might try a high temp sleeve on your USB cable to protect it.

Mundy M: Sorry, I made a mistake. The battery cable is by Powerlet, not Battery Tender.
