    Powerlet doesn't seem to have a cigarette lighter outlet with a spring loaded cover. It seems the only outlets with a spring loaded cover are the BMW outlets.

    They make primarily DIN outlets. They're cheaper than the BMW outlets and come with a harness so hooking them up is easier.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    I picked up an automotive trailer power adapter that connects to the Powerlet adapter that came with my Battery Tender. It has the cigarette plug on one end and a two connector plug on the other with roughly 6" of wire between the two. I don't use it while in transit, but it serves the purpose of having a "backup" power supply to charge the cell phone.
