Agreed. That's what I would do if it was my computer and I was headed down the road for an extended period. One of the chargers online looked pretty compact it had good reviews. Better safe than sorry.

Meanwhile if anyone has more info it would be interesting to know what works and what causes smoke to escape from those little chips.

John - we made a couple of attempts to get something that looked decent but can't get there with shrink tube. If there is enough demand we would have to go to our cable supplier and have the junction molded for a saleable product.

Here's the prototype. As you can see it is butt ugly. One thing we did was add both the male and female SAE 2-pin connectors so power was still available for other applications. Even with three TAPPs we are drawing less than 2A so there's plenty left on a 15A circuit.

I have a question and a comment....

Why do you have 2 SAE's?

I assumed the USB's would be stacked kinda like a typical USB hub. They're going to be inside a fairly waterproof container, so they don't really need the waterproof housing.

The two SAE connectors, one male and one female allow you to still have a SAE power port even with the Hydra plugged in, i.e. it is a splitter. TAPP uses so little power it's a waste to have the SAE plug totally used with it.

With this arrangement you plug in the TAPP and still have an SAE available to plug in other stuff.

We are working on another Hydra idea that would have just the USB sockets split off of one high power regulator. We can't do it with TAPP Lite since it only supplies 1A total. That would be too limiting split three ways.

Any more news on updated connections i.e. sae to usb? Could you make an sae to usb with a very short lead I don't even need tap lite as I wouldn't use it in the rain as my unit is not waterproof?

SAE to USB

You can't go directly from SAE to USB due to the voltage difference. USB is 5VDC so you need a voltage regulator to get from 12VDC down to 5VDC. That's what the TAPP Lite does.

I thought that might be the case. What about your work on the sae to Tapp Lite, how is that going or could you just make up an sae to Tapp Lite with short lead as I saw you posted before. I just need to go from an sae plug I have near the bars and then a short way with a usb pigtail to operate my Garmin.

SAE to TAPP Lite

Sure, that's no problem. Would you still use the Universal Mount to attach the TAPP Lite?
The SAE should be on a fused circuit -do you know what the fuse rating is? We use a 7.5A fuse but the TAPP Lite cable will handle up to 15A. The TAPP Lite itself is internally protected with a auto-resetting fuse so it is safe no matter what. The in-line fuse just protects the cable.
Also, what Garmin are you using. If it is a Nuvi then you will need our Garmin Charging Cable. It is the only cable available that will allow the Nuvi to charge and navigate. More info here:

Let us know how you want to attach and the pigtail length and we'll put something together for you.

Yes it has 7.5a fuse, it is a Nuvi a 9" charging cable would be fine and the sae to Tapp Lite could be 6" overall. I don't need a mount just the cables.
Let me know a price.
Thanks,
Bob

We can use the TAPP Lite w/o bracket price since the SAE 2-pin connector cost will balance out against the fuse holder and fuse. We normally tack on $5.00 for specials but won't in this case. So the total looks like this:
TAPP Lite w/o bracket PN 150-0048-01 $29.95
Cable, USB, Garmin Charging, USB A - USB Mini RA UP, 9" PN 202-0033-09 $12.95
Shipping, domestic $4.50
Plus sales tax if you live in CA
If you want to go head with the order you will need to call it in since the 150-0048-01 is not on the website

iPad Power

Hi,

I'm certainly happy this is available . . . TAPP™ LITE
USB POWER PORT
with DIN 4165 Plug (BMW).

Is there any update on the iPad-compatible USB adapter. SAE, Powerlet, whatever . . .

Thanks,

Kurt
