Charging on the move is a must for most riders nowadays, but keeping power-hungry smartphones, sat navs and cameras topped up can put the bike’s 12V battery under pressure.
Nippy Norman’s new Twin USB Adaptor displays the bike’s battery voltage whenever a device is plugged into one or both of its USB ports, so the you can keep an eye on power reserves – extra handy during stops for fuel or parking up if you have a live connection, when the alternator isn’t generating power for the system.
Voltage is shown on a bright blue illuminated digital display, so it stands out in low light and can easily be distinguished from other warning lights.
The adaptor plugs straight into any standard bike DIN socket. There’s no hard-wiring or fiddly fixings to worry about and each USB port pumps out 5V / 2.1 Amps which should be more than enough to keep the latest devices powered up.
Suitable for just about any machine, it’s even fully compatible with BMW’s Can-Bus system apparently. For details, visit the UK’s #1 for BMW motorcycle accessories www.nippynormans.com
