Heated grips causing issue with Powerlet USB charger

I just returned from a weekend trip and noticed when I turn on the heated grips (2014 F700) while using the Powerlet Dual USB charger connected to my iPhone, it drains my iPhone battery and/or causes it to power itself

Eventually when the iPhone reboots it will have some charge. Not sure if powerlet is giving wrong voltage and causing erratic iPhone behavior.

Has anyone else noticed problems with devices being powered from power socket while using heated grips.

Powerlet works great when heated grips are off.

Can't say I've noticed anything strange on mine.

That is weird. Until an answer comes along, I'd bypass CANbus and wire the socket directly to the battery via a fuse or a fusebox.

I am going to see if I can use a voltage meter and get some readings while turning the heated grips on and off. Will post any results

USB chargers should be switched - they will draw power even if nothing is connected, not a lot but enough to drain the battery if the bike is parked for an extended time.
