How do I plug all my stuff in?

My Shark will be here in a week, and though I have read some comments, how does one plug in all their stuff on a Custom?

I will have a battery tender, I guess a standard Pig Tail adapter for that?

Next, a smart phone mounted with Ram X mount.

In the winter, I have heated gear. On my old bike, I have a battery mounted pig tail adapter for that.

I am contemplating mounting a Power Vision, and occasionally, I take videos with a Go Pro.

Now I will not be using all this stuff at once, but I can definitely see having a smart phone and heated gear plugged in while wanting to video with the camera and keeping it charged. The custom has one power port.

Any recommendations? They would be MOST appreciated!

I use a 90 degree cigarette lighter adapter I got off Amazon for cheap. It has 2 lighter jacks that I use that to power the phone and radar detector.

If you have gear that has a USB power cable, you can get a single or double usb port that will fit in your lighter/power point. Got mine at pep boys for a few bucks.

I wish I knew the best type to get. Also, I wonder if hardwiring to the battery for one line is a good (or bad) thing.

The smart phone and the Go Pro at least will have USB, don't know about the Power Commander. I know the heated gear does not. That may be best to the battery. Thanks folks. Anyone else (please).

Use the under seat accessory connector for your electric riding gear. I believe there's also one inside the fairing. Go to Amazon and buy the repair manual for your bike, it'll pay off time and again, even if you don't do a lot of your own maintenance.

I have an extra power point & USB that is inside my right glove box. Frankie has an extra power point he put in his tourpack in case something needs charged while not in use. We both have heated gear that is plugged into a battery harness from Gerbings. They are only about 10 bucks.

Battery Tender pigtail for heated gear, iPhone charger with a usb plug piggy back in the power port ( cig Lighter) takes care of three at a time for me.

Hi Tracy. Does your heated gear have that round plug end? My HD gear (Gerbings) does. Are you saying that there is an adapter for this round plug to USB?

I saw those pics of the power point in the Tourpack, but this is a Custom and I do not have anything out back except a slipstream! Thanks!

This is the scenario I had in mind. I was just wondering if there was a better idea. I have heard of an HD under-seat multi-plug adapter, but I am not sure of what it does nor what the benefits would be. Thanks!

I dont know of any USB adapter for the heated gear. I installed the USB for my iPod.
