    Wireless USB phone charger

    Hi Guys,

    im looking for a solution to charge my phone on my 2021 S1000RR.

    currently I have a Motowolf wireless weatherproof charging pad stuck onto my Ram Mount cradle. This is powered directly to my battery terminal and I’m finding that it is draining my battery whilst the bike is turned off (obviously because it has a permanent electrical supply)

    can anyone advise of an alternative solution, perhaps a particular charger that could connect to the USB port located under pillion passenger seat?

    thanks in advance

    Jim ?

    Ultimateaddons (2-amp-waterproof-motorycle-scooter-hard-wire-charger) have a number of chargers (some switchable). I've used them for a number of years now, very reliable kit.

    why not just splice a switch in line with the unit so wont drain battery when not in use

    This is why punctuation is important. Adding a comma changes the whole sentence.
    I’ll have a wee, look
