I’ve started stocking these as it’s a ‘no brainer’. Nearly every bike that comes into my workshop gets this little upgrade.
It’s so simple to fit and whats more, for R1250 and R1200 GS and GSA bikes from 2013 onwards……..you don’t need to lose your DIN socket. You can relocate it using the 2nd part of the kit. Handy for those of you who have an Optimate charger with a DIN plug.
Until now all USB chargers for motorcycles come equipped with a cover, but how to protect them while on the move under rain or dust?
The Dual USB socket solves these problems with following unique features:
BMW Plug-and-Play: the unit is designed in a way to fit the DIN socket installation physically and electrically. This means an easy and practical way to replace the origin DIN socket, by simply unplugging the connector from bike’s cable harness, unscrew the nut and install the USB dual charger in the same place and same connector. No soldering or costly specialised technician intervention needed. The final result is a nice and seamless installation,
Weatherproof USB ports: when a USB plug is inserted it becomes isolated from rain and dust, due to specially designed rubber membranes. One needs this type of device to use on the move, and not to be protected only when closed!
Independent covers: The Dual USB socket features two covers for the USB ports. If only one is in use the other is closed and protected. The covers are designed to be easily removed and closed with gloves.
-Input voltage: 10 to 40 V
-Output voltage (USB ports): 5 V +/- 5%
-Output over voltage, overheating and short-circuit protection
-Fully Can Bus compatible
-Total 3.3 Amp output, with current limiters per port (master port 1: 2.3 A / Aux port 2: 1.0 A)
-Intelligent device recognition: detects if Apple (meets MFi standard) or Android (BC1.2).
-Independent port rubber covers
-Plug compatible with BMW motorcycle DIN socket installation
