I bought one of these things from Burnszilla and I've got to say that it has been absolutely the best thing I have ever purchased for a motorcycle. THE BEST! Well, except the replacement seat I bought at the MOA Rally in Redmond about 10 years ago. It took days to recover my former sitting ability after spending many hours on the stock BMW seat. That was the best. So I guess this thing is the second best.

Maybe I should try sitting on the USB charger & see how that is. Anyway...

Burnszilla is a good guy.

Buy one & be amazed!

I had a flash of genius this morning and wired it to an SAE plug that I can keep in the tank bag until I need it. No worries on where to mount it now and my plug doubles as my battery tender plug, heated jacket plug and now iPhone charger. The plug is tucked under the left front panel near the seat. When not in use you can even see it, flip it out for use. Charges the phone just fine.

...just ordered one. Looking forward to it after reading all of this. No hurry...but what´s the estimated shippping time for Sweden, Europe?

It seems to be a very nice and easy connector. As i get it i wire it directly to the battery? Nothing in between?

Got mail with shipping confirmation and tracking number within a couple of hours, thats fast!

U.S. Postal Service First-Class Mail International usually takes about a week or so to get to Sweden

Wired it up to my Jeep for the last week and all has been good. Wired it up to my battery on my bike 4 days ago and all was good for a nice 4 hour ride.

I then wired it up to the battery with a relay attached to the GPS connector port so it is switched with the key. Went for about a 2 hour ride and all is still good. I like the extra safety of having the relay to prevent my battery from draining.

I'm in Germany for work the next 2 weeks and I miss my bike. The good beer is making up for it.

Thanks for sending the replacement unit. Would you like the old one back?

Thanks for your order!

It should be there within 2 weeks, I dropped it off at the post office early this morning.

It says that it has a built in resetting fuse, but for safety's sake you could run a 3 amp fuse on the positive line.

Please send the old one back to me Brad, so I can return it to the manufacturer for a diagnosis and refund from them. Thanks.
