Plugging in

Post by vet57air » Wed Oct 23, 2019 4:10 am

When you are powering something like a heated vest on the GT where are you plugging into. Power outlet under clocks, having the cord dangle over tank or a added power outlet under seat, or?

Power for heated gear typically requires at least a 20 amp circuit. This can easily be provided by a dongle attached to your battery. The accessory outlets are usually rated about 10Amps. Or, you could add a PowerLet type outlet?? Best,

Doc :D :D

My heated vest is 6 amps. I guess if you were decked out with pants, vest and gloves it could be more than 10.
Was just looking for ideas on what people had installed for sockets for their gear and where.
GaryCulb I like your installed socket. What brand?

The parts you would require to make this modification include:

- Powerlet or equivalent Low profile outlet ( http://motorcycle-gadgets.com/viewitem. ... ductid=243 )
- Powerlet or equivalent bracket ( https://www.powerlet.com/product/powerl ... -type2/648 ).

Plug & Play install. Great when you are on the road & forget to plug in your heated gear. Best,

Doc :) :)

I wired mine directly to battery, as is the recommended method by Warm 'n Safe, where I got my gear, and my coax pigtail connector.
