Oxford USB Dual Socket
Great for charging phone
Installed this inside my tank bag so I could charge my phone and camera. Has worked fine so far.

Works good, looks good, hate blue light
Although I like having USB power on my bike, I really dislike having a blue light staring at me whilst I ride at night. I keep thinking my brights are on! The other complaint I have on this was that the wires were not long enough to reach the fuse block near my battery on my 2001 Yamaha FZ1, so I extended them to add the reach needed for a proper install. Also of note, there was not enough charging power to keep my phone (Samsung S3) charging faster than it was using power while I was using GPS and Pandora on a road trip. Still way better than nothing though!
Despite a few shortfalls , I would still recommend this product.

Great product. I decided to take the USB socket off of the bar clamp it comes with and very carefully cut a big hole (big) in the plastic on my dash! Fits very nicely and looks part of the bike. The socket even glows blue!! Seems a much better idea than a cigarette lighter as smoking and riding kills!! Seriously though everything is USB these days so cut out the cigarette lighter socket and just have one off these?

Good USB socket w/ one flaw
This USB socket works great and the waterproof cap definitely keeps the seal.
I have one complaint about this socket. It has blue LED lights that are always on when the device is powered on! This is a problem if you plan to do a direct connection to the battery because it will drain your battery (albeit slowly).
I ended up splicing the wires from this device onto my options plug wires under my seat so that this socket only powers on when my ignition is on. This keeps my battery safe from draining. The downside of this solution, though, is I have to have my ignition on to charge/power anything via USB.
If those LED lights were gone, it'd be better. Otherwise, this socket seems to be great quality.
