    Default USB Cables

    Anyone ever installed these USB power cables on their sleds for charging gopro batteries or cell phones? Just looking for opinions on them, are they easy to install? I'd be looking to do it on a Polaris Axys sled.

    I didnt use that cable but yes I put one on mine. simply plug it in and run the wire to wherever you want it. Very easy. The 2 wire sae plug is under the headlight.

    I went with something like this

    I used it to power my gps. Since that is on the load shed relay Im not sure how constant the power is but it powered my garmin just fine.

    Just wondering if you've gotten this figured out yet. The first link is majorly overpriced. The second link basically gives you a cigarette lighter. Then you plug your existing cigarette lighter cord into that. Or you can buy an adapter that has two USB ports on it.

    If it was me I'd wire in the connection that I want. One less connection point to rattle loose when riding. The big things remember is you can't just cut a USB cable and wire it in you need a transformer between. USB ports are designed to be 5.5 volts. Then there's different amperages. More amps equals a faster charge.

    Something like this would be an adapter for the second link above.

    Here's one like the one you posted. Note the one you posted appears to be the same as this what should be the slow charge.

    This one would get you a very finished look if you have the space on your dash.

    If you have the two prong SAE plug Then you could buy this so you don't have to cut anything.

    You could go with something like this. Same as your original post but not as expensive....

    Sorry guys, I haven't got back to this. Was just putting feelers out there to see what others have done. I'll probably tackle it when I put the sleds away for the summer (yes I'm probably behind haha) which will be in the next few weeks.

    Thanks for the input, I do appreciate it.

    I put it in the dash where the cigarette lighter would go. Run the cord into your windshield bag with your phone.

    Install on circuit that's hot only when the key is on, the voltage display draws very little but eventually would kill the battery.
