battery tender power outlet
« on: June 28, 2012, 09:07:18 am »
instead of spending $50 for the powerlet kit, I just ordered a battery tender ring terminal harness ($4.69) and Battery Tender 081-0069-8 Female Cigarette Adaptor for Quick Disconnect ($6.17) off of amazon.  Paid a little extra for one day shipping so my total was like $30 to have it by tomorrow - still less that just the pwerlet without shipping costs.

Here's what I got:

Should have some more info after this weekend.

Great find..... and both can be found locally for about the same price. I found mine at Honda/Yamaha of Knoxville.... 

I bought the cigarette disconnect to carry with me so I can plug my small air compressor in while I am on the road, so I can air the tire back up after a flat.

LOVE my Battery Tender..... :D :21 :22

apparently there was some hiccup with amazon and my one day shipping so I should be getting this stuff today - amazon refunded all my shipping costs...how nice of them since I was paying for one day shipping and I had to wait all weekend :tap

Alright got home and saw that the nice UPS person had delivered my stuff.  Pics:

 

Install was a breeze (except for getting the stupid screw for the negative battery cable back in the little block nut thing...just a hair to short...story of my life).  The only part that I really had to think about was where to mount it, I decided to put it beside the ignition.  Looks like a good quality outlet, my phone charger fits snug into the hole ~ not to lose and not to tight.  The cap for the plug looks a little questionable in quality but we'll see.  I'll give another update after a couple days use.

Looks good. I have one tucked under my tail out of sight but have been thinking of moving it.

What a great find. I already have the disconnect on the bike for my battery tender, just need to get this for the phone or GPS.

A little update, my phone charges just fine with the outlet and all the wiring is plenty long enough to mount this anywhere I want to on the SV with no binding.  The cap for the outlet is truly waterproof as I found out Tuesday when my poor SV just about drowned in the rain storm that came through while I was at work.  So far so good!  Anybody thinking about getting one of these....it's a no brainer!  Do it!
