Converting a plug to a BMW plug
« on: December 15, 2018, 02:32:23 PM »
Considering a HotWired jacket liner. My old Eclipse electric vest and battery charger both have a male BMW plug that plugs into a (female) BMW outlet wired to the battery on my 12S. The HotWired jacket has a small 1/2"round plug that I would like to convert to the BMW plug so I can plug it into the existing (female) BMW outlet on my bike. Would it be difficult or risky to splice the BMW plug into the new HotWired wires so I can just plug it in to the BMW (female) outlet?

....or, the BMW male plugs are quite easy to attach directly to two-lead wires.
