Battery Tender USB Charger
Why would one ever buy a Powerlet?
I had a Powerlet direct-to-battery iPhone charging cable. I needed an adapter to make it work with my iPhone 5 (lightning cable). Yes, they came out with a new cable months - or maybe a year - after the lightning cable was introduced. The cable barely charged the iPhone - maybe 10% over an hour, if that. And then it just crapped out.
I emailed Revzilla and a rep offered this solution: cheaper, easier, more elegant, and it just works - charges my iPhone almost as fast as a wall charger. I'm going to use it for my camera as well - just bought a two-plug USB hub. If it doesn't throw enough juice using the hub, I'll just get another one.
Forget Powerlet. This is how you power your USB devices on your bike.

Battery Tender to USB = Win
This thing is so convenient to have. Good to have for when my phone needs a charge. Provides peace of mind while you're out, knowing your battery won't run out. Buy it.

The easiest way to charge your phone/GPS on your bike
This is by far the easiest and cheapest way to charge your electronic devices. I have it in my saddlebags together with a spare USB cable, so no more cellphone running out of battery in the middle of a ride.

Not sure how it happened but I was out of town for a few days and when I got back the USB and my phone charging cable were melted, I'm just glad it didn't catch on fire. I've since switched to the powerlet cable and haven't had any issues.

Works as intended. I leave mine on all the time and it stays on tight. Nice to be able not to run out of battery when on road trips. Now can use the gps on phone.

Kept the iPhone on and charged
Got this so I could use my iPhone as a nav unit while going on a long 3 day tour. Allowed me to use the regular iPhone charging cable so I could leave my phone on while riding. Plus works with the battery tender connection I already had installed so no additional installation and the connection can still be used to put the bike on the tender.

Works great while your riding. Keep your Bluetooth on while it's charging in the trunk
