Accessory Outlet

Just got mine in and wondering what are you using to charge cell phones and GPS with? For those of you who have one also.

I use a usb socket spliced directly into the Aux power cable behind the headlight. See my posts in https://www.g310rforum.com/forum/169-...-location.html


You can also get a bmw plug so that you don't have to splice into the cable, you should be able to get all of the parts for around $30.


Probably not what you're after, but a better solution than a powerlet adapter and routing a cable from the power socket to the handlebars imho.

Any chance you could get a key cylinder cover (to replace the existing cover) made up with one or two usb sockets on the sides, that plugs directly into the aux power plug behind the headlight? That would be nice and should work with both the R and the GS (and maybe other BMW models)!

I'm not sure what you mean, what would it attach to?

I believe he means that the USB plugs would be attached to either side of a replacement ignition key barrel cover.

BMW have a really nice looking dual USB charger, around the AUD 75 mark, don't know if the powerlet plug can be cut off and replaced with an mcon plug

Decided to run a fused supply straight off the battery, picked up a kit for about $30 from Jaycar (local auto electric supplies). I’ll need to take some fairings off to install but should be a simple job. Will give me a weatherproof USB supply beside the ignition barrel.
I see Rally Raid has a similar kit and choice of 12V /USB sockets.
