Based on long years of experience and customer feedback we developed this Dual USB socket for BMW motorcycles
All modern BMW bikes come equipped with a lighter like socket to power accessories. These sockets are named DIN sockets. However, most customers either do not use them, or, in the need for USB to charge their mobile phones, cameras, GPS or intercom,
choose adapters to plug into those sockets.
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 specialized technician
intervention needed. The final result is a nice and seamless installation,
as in the picture to the right on a R1200GS LC
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.
