Hi All

does anyone know where I can find some guidelines on how to properly install a USB charger on my Himalayan? I found several videos on youtube however they all seem to connect the cable to the battery, which as I understand is not recommended (Better to connect to the ignition switch instead to avoid draining the battery?). Also for info I know close to nothing about engines, electricals etc...

Many thanks,

Andrea

There is a video by a guy Adrian Aedes who shows how it can be done:
.

He takes the current from the wire to the rearlight (which is switched with the ignition switch) to activate a relais that gets its electricity from the battery. So: ignition off, no drain on the battery. That any help?

Ah nice one thank you, Robert. This may be slightly overkill for what I want to do but it's definitely helpful.

Cheers!
