    Thanks in anticipation

    I made a charging point under the seat, connected to the battery via a switch and fuse. But I only use it to charge my phone overnight when I am on holiday. How are you gonna use it?
    Stop making sense

    When away, I keep a portable charger in the tank bag and if my phone battery is getting low, connect it to recharge. I then recharge the portable charger overnight in my hotel.

    portable power pack for me too. least touched on the bike the better.

    iv a durite jump start pack with usb power. it charged my phone and camera and headset which was playing internet music all day ,,  for 5 days in a france trip, charged once and done the remaining 5 days to i was home. 1 man trip, would have been more if the wife was pillion and double phone and headset charging, accordingly. when i charged it it was still showing 24¬¨percent.
    it would have been pretty useless to start the bike.
    its not easy got at the battery to start it anyway
    if i cared about being judged by a stranger, i'd be religious.

    thats an expensive caravan charge sensing relay, ? $60 +
    £6 and a maplin wp box for £4. same without the same cost.

    i have used Charge Sensing Relays previously , mostly for sound systems on cars or powering an inverter in my van,,,
    but i still find portable power the 'new' thing. everything is usb nowaways.,, its the NEW way to go.
    iv seen luggage with wires in and out of drilled holes and those wired coms. pah! old school rubbish
