Motorcycle (and other vehicles) USB charger

I finally got that up and working. I took apart the Griffin chargers I picked up a while back to get this working. The intent is to have the power coming from an SAE connector that’s fairly common on bikes. It’s the same connector that’s used by a batter tender so my bike already has one on it.

What I had been using before was a SAE connector to a cigarette socket to the stuff that plugs in. The problem is that that’s a huge connector on a bike.

Now, I can use the SAE connector and have a couple of USB connectors that can charge anything I can plug into it. I’ve checked the iPhone, iPad, Kindle, iPod. They all work great!

As a bonus I have a cigarette plug to SAE connector so I can use the rig in the car! :-D
