you can get a din USB converter and then use it for charging usb devices. I think they are about £15 from nippy normans

There's a switched power cable fitting taped to the left side of the frame under the seat....it's in the owners manual, section 10, page 179....but hardly anyone bothers to read it..!! :027:

I have the Optimal double USB adapter. Well made, and waterproof (in theory, not tested it in the rain yet)

Use my DIN socket at the front for charging the bike, not much else as it won't power a normal tyre inflator  :305:

I use it to keep the bike on charge with a BMW charger.
After over thirty + years behind the bars, there's still lots to do and see.
