Powerlet iPhone Lightning Charging Cable
You would expect something like this to just work. Although it took all kinds of wiggling to get it to work in my 2013 BMW F800GS. It has to be in there JUST right or it there is no power to the device. It would vibrate out after 15min.
When it works it works well. Although i want to plug it in and want it to work. That is not the case.
Should have purchased the SAE connector.

4000+ Miles, Only Regrets
I purchased the product at the end of May to power my iPhone5s with IOS7 and the latest updates. First month was 80/20 - 80% of the time it would work, 20% of the time it would take turning the bike on/off, resetting the power cable, powering the phone on and off, etc. Once you got it to work, so long as I didn't shut off the bike it would keep working. Next few thousand miles and two months it got worse and worse until the product stopped functioning completely. I received a 2nd cable brand new and it failed to function immediately, and continues to not work. I do not recommend this product in any way.

Flawless product, works great. Plenty of cable to route anywhere you want.

This product is perfect for the job.
Finally I have the right product to do the job. Powerlet to iphone 5 with no adapters and no worries about loose connections and the correct length so no coiling excess cable and trying to keep it out of harms way. The charging function works well. overall I am very please with this product even though it has a high price tag.

So far all the products that i have from powerlet are really well made. They are made with high standards.

It's a powerlet iPhone charger..
The short length is good for phone mounts near to a powerlet outlet. No long cables to deal with or tie up. 4 stars since these are pricey for what they are in my opinion.

Not so good
I had one of these for my iPhone 4S that didn't work reliably.
I bought another once I went to the 5S. This one does not work reliably as well either. I have to try to get it to work.
Sometime plugging it in then starting the bike works. Sometimes starting the bike then plugging it in works. I routinely get an error on my phone stating the accessory cable being used is not compatible.
The last time I had my bike serviced I had them check my electrical system to see if it was my bike. My bike checked out fine.
So I have spent about $100.00 with this company and have 2 pretty much useless cables.
2 star because I got this to work once without having to mess with it.

May not work with iPhone5
I have several Powerlet products and have been happy with all of them. I have the dual USB plug and it works with a standard lightening Apple cable just fine. However, when I plug this cable in, a message comes up on the iPhone screen, "this is not an approved device," and the phone fails to charge. I suspect that the regulator may be stepped down too far. Pretty disappointing given the price of the cable. Haven't yet tried on my iPad, so am hoping its not a total wash.
