Ivan M asked: Sound silly but i don't know much about motorcycle connections. i'm a rookie!!

This product is recommended for triumph, but...
You have a variety of similar products:

Powerlet Basic Plug To SAE - Garage Duty Cables. 18awg, PPL-001

Powerlet Deluxe Plug To SAE - Road Duty Cables
16awg , PPL-002

Powerlet Super Plug To SAE - Heavy Duty Cables
16awg , PPL-003

So If the PPL-01, 02 and 03 are almost the same but if the 03 is somehow better than the 01 or 02, then the roughest product is the heavy duty? (even if it's have a 16awg vs 18awg from the basic plug?) What's the difference beetwen the PPL01, PPL02 and PPL03?

The heavy duty will work with an optimate 3+ charger and my Triumph bonneville?

Steven B: The PPL-001 holds the wire in the powerlet plug with 2 screws. The PPL-002 also has a clamp inside the plug to hold the wire more secure. The PPL-03 has the clamp and a waterproof boot on the wire. Both the 002 and 003 have 16 gauge wire which is heavier than 18 gauge wire. Smaller number is larger diameter wire. I have the 001 and wished I had the 003 after seeing the difference. Feb 18, 2014

Linda N: The lower the power rating, the LONGER it takes to charge.

Yes, they're almost the same, but if you want something that's always maximum charged, go with the higher rating.

Check your owner's manual for specific electrical specs, to avoid damage to your battery over the long term.

David R: The difference is mostly the "beefyness" of the plug ends and the gage of the wire itself. The heavier the gage the higher amps you can use running heated gear and charging a bigger battery. I have the heavy duty, not cause I need it but cause its the best. Feb 18, 2014

Jim P: I bought the powerlet battery tender and yuasa charging cable. It plugs into the side of my 2013 Triumph Trophy and the other end plugs into my battery tender junior. It works perfectly for my set up. Hope that helps.

Michael H asked: I just purchase this for my BMW K1200GT, plugged it into the oem powerlet socket in the left, and nothing. I assumed this would work as there were no exceptions listed on the site. I connected my spare battery harness and that works. So... Is this a canbus issue? If so, there is nothing on this part number that would indicate compatibility issues. What do you think Revzilla?

Michael H: Solved! Because of BMW's CanBus electrical system, you must keep the powerlet socket active by turning the bike on then off. The outlet/socket's circuit remains open for a few minutes. It's at this time that you can plug in the above charging cable and begin charging your battery. Just plugging the cable into the socket to begin charging will not work unless you follow the above instructions.. Oct 30, 2013

Raymond B: I purchased this to use with a battery tender and plugged it into the socket located at the top of the gas tank on a Triumph Tiger Explorer and connected it to the battery tender and everything worked fine. I do not know what a canbus issue is. Oct 14, 2013

Randall R: This is definitely a Canbus issue.

On my R1200GS anything plugged into the factory plugs will shut off with any larger amount of amperage. I finally wired plugs directly to the batter for charging and my heated liners.

A shopper asked: Will this powerlet product work with the battery tender USB connector? Battery tender says it requires the use of theirs which has an output or 5v / 2.1a any input will be useful. Feb 27, 2014
