    USB charger

    Hi, gen 2 has a USB charger under the seat.
    Can this be easily changed for a normal power socket?
    I’m thinking if using it for powering Keis jacket, or should I just power from the battery connections.
    What do people use the under seat one for?

    Cheers.

    How much current does your jacket pull..?? I believe the USB socket is only rated for 2.4amps?? So depending on the jacket's current draw you may need to connect directly to the battery anyway.

    Says, the jacket will draw about 7 Amps, power is 84 Watts.
    So direct to battery then 👍
