If you have the pig tail connector for a tender or heated gear already then just buy the extended cig lighter that plugs into the pigtail and run it to the saddlebag. Thats exactly what i did and i use a car charger that i already had. Works great. A lil food for thought

Not sure if you are looking for a USB charger, but if so, here are 2 that I have purchased and installed.







The first one can go on any bike. The second one can be mounted in the inner fairing.

2017 FLTRXS, Givi V56 Topcase, Windvest 10", National Cycle Hand Deflectors, Rapid Transit Tank Bag. My last bike was 2014 Triumph Trophy SE. Before that: 2010 FLTRX.

On the 2015, it has a usb plug in the glove box, but it goes to radio for flash drive music. Is there a way to change it to have power to plug a cell charger cord? Something under fairing, maybe splicing off cigarette lighter. I'd rather charger with cable AND phone in glove box since there's already a usb connection in there, not from the cigarette lighter

Be sure you know how much power your phone needs before you make your purchase. It used to be that phone needed 1.2 amp (1200ma) for charging. Some of the newer , larger phones as well as tablets need 2.1 amp or more.

I spliced into the cig lighter wiring inside the fairing, added another 12v power source and mounted it in my left glove box, works like a charm and was like $12

Overtime pays more because of what you're missing, money isn't everything.
