Powerlet Dual USB Adapter
I bought this item from a dealer (not Revzilla) to charge my cell phone and intercom on my 2015 BMW R1200GSAW. Although the build quality appears good and it feels like the adapter snaps into my DIN outlet positively, the adapter does not make a good connection. Further, the red LED is not visible from the riding position due to the odd angle of the adapter combined with the angle of the outlet on the motorcycle so I cannot tell if I am charging our not. Great idea, terrible execution.

Do not buy unless you like to gamble.
Bought it for my 2015 Tiger 800 to power a GPS. I could only get it to power up for a moment if I wiggled it around for a while. Obviously not a good thing. Sorry this is made in the USA. I guess from the reviews it's hit or miss.
P.S. Wrong bike as my ride.

Worked for a while....
Then it caught fire and burned up. Had to throw it away since I was going down the road. A waste of money.

Good Item if it fits correctly on your bikes setup
Build of the product is great. But it did not fit in either of my two powerlet outlets firmly or made contact properly for the power to start flowing. Had to wiggle the connector to get it to work which will not work during a ride, so I am going to have to return this.

Mini power farkles FTW
Great charger, snaps in solidly to my 1996 BMW's power port and keeps my phone charged while running my nav and music apps. It doesn't interfere with the dash rocker switches or the handlebar. The LED is always on, but the current drain is negligible and looks like a security warning, so that's cool.

Does what it says.
I purchased this to power a GPS and charge my phone at the same time. It is very convenient to have two USB ports on the bike. The only issue I found is that it mounts at an angle, which on my bike may interfere with the bars if I point it forward. Other than that ti works great.

Does the job.
I just got this and used it to charge my iPhone wile riding. It did the job but my only complaint is.
Its a sloppy fit into the power port on my Bmw F800 gsa.
Felt loose and lost connection a couple times. I was expecting it to snap in.
