Made in Germany Hella Plug
There you go, good stuff.
Stock BMW canbus charger plug shattered hitting the floor. Ordered this plug from RZ and one from Bummer dealer. RZ there in two days, half the cost, Hella brand right on the plug first gear packaging. Back in operation. BM two weeks.
The plug itself is a quality unit. Good internal brass stuff, terminals side by side not staggered so no fancy stripping. Small straight slot screws hold wire ends in round sockets. I did tin my wire ends before securing. Outer halves clam shell design actual plug portion is keyed to one half of the clam. Little bulkier than it needs to be but not terrible. Cord hole is grossly oversize. No strain relief but that will keep your toasty butt from pulling your bike over first time you try to walk away tethered.

Unplugged hundred of times and still working
I have two of these that I am using on my BMW for charging. It has been unplugged multiple times, replugged in many times and has not failed at all.

Not really a converter
Good product, no issues with it. But the description could be a little clearer. This is not a converter as I though it was when purchasing. Rather, it is a new plug meaning you will need to cut the existing plug off your gear and fit this one on the wire.
Quality is good, but I would like to see some sort of sealing around the wire to keep water out. I put a glob of caulk in there to do it.
Also, instructions wouldn't go astray. Not that I don't know how to strip a wire and screw it to the terminals... but I had to do my own research to find which terminal was positive and which was negative,
