    Accessories
    Just thought I'd post up some thoughts on the above charger. It's a compact gizmo built around a DIN plug that enables you to charge two USB gadgets simultaneously. It's voltage sensitive so switches itself off when the input voltage drops below a predetermined number, designed to protect...

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi All I am fitting a phone holder to my Dommie (1996 RD08). When I came to wire it in I found the pictured wire and connector under the seat above the battery.

  7. lithium 12v batteries.

    Africa Twin
    Oh no not again. This is my new AT battery. It's a 4 cell pack of 15Ah capacity. It weighs less than 2kg and if I'm honest it scares me a little since those cells will discharge happily at 150A. It cost less than 100GBP. Whilst bits are painted plated or otherwise fettled I'm getting on with...

    I have a charger plug fitted to most of my bikes so I decided to take my GPS/Satnav USB power from there. I brought 2 different Chinese Cheapo 12v to USB converters that are much smaller than the socket converters that are not an easy shape to stow on a bike. A small inline converter with 1m...
