Anyone have a solution for charging a cell phone on the bike? Particularly on a 1200RT ? I realize you can use a standard car charger with the 12V male plug and then feed that into a female adapter for the BMW 12V plug which can go into one of the outlets.
It's a little messy having the wiring dangling from the outlet and I was hoping for a solution to have a wire come from a hot lead and then perhaps feed into the tank bag where the phone could be charging. Can that male cigarette plug be simply cut off and then use the two exposed wires? Not sure what's inside that cigarette lighter plug such as a transformer to reduce voltage. That's all I need is to fry my iPhone.
Reason I'm asking is my phone stays connected by bluetooth to my Zumo and we often ride a full day. The charge should last a full day, but it could be one less thing to have to deal with by keeping it charged.
Appreciate any good advice.
