I betcha this week is killing Jay that he can't ride it yet...
So have we figured out that's where the factory USB kit goes? If so cool.Me, I'm buying the Battery Tender one because every single bike in the fleet has a battery tender harness so it makes it real convenient to move it from bike-to-bike.
Just remember that if you use one connected to a battery tender and you leave your phone/tablet/GPS plugged in it is draining the battery. I like my USB connections to be switched.
Good point - and that might be an issue for someone who wants to mount a GPS or something (which is probably why Guzzi put the switched power connector there).But for someone like me who would only want it to charge something while he was riding, I'd never walk away with the wires hanging off the bike so it's less of a concern.
On the V7-II there is a spare plug under the seat for the usb adapter (tucked down behind the ABS fuse holder and the EMU interface plug holder).
Actually, you don't even have to leave anything plugged into it to drain your battery. Those adapters have an digital voltage regulator 12-volts to 5 volts (it's actually a small switching power supply). That circuit uses a little it of power by itself w/o anything even plugged into it, just like the ubiquitous power bricks and electronics chargers draw a small amount of AC from the wall socket even when nothing is connected to them.
