Sat Nav's - GPS - Mobile phones - iPods - iPhones - iPads - Digital Cameras - HD video cameras - MP3 players - heated vests - heated gloves - battery chargers - etc, etc. As motorcyclists we are now carrying an increasing amount of "essential" electrical equipment with us on our travels which need powering and charging on the move. We have a wide range of plugs, sockets and cables to help you on your way. We have both DIN and Cigarette type sockets and cables to suit all sorts of accessories.
DIN plugs and sockets in particular can cause some confusion. DIN sockets are a standard sized accessory socket as fitted by BMW, Triumph, Ducati and others. DIN is simply the German standard sizing these type of sockets and plugs conform to. They are variously known as DIN sockets, Hella sockets, Powerlet sockets, etc - but they are all the same size and all accept standard DIN plugs. DIN sockets are more suited to motorcycle use as they are more compact, robust and provide a much more secure and reliable connection than cigarette type sockets do. For charging phones, sat nav's etc which come with cigarette type plugs, we also have a range of adapters to convert from DIN sockets to cigarette sockets. We supply quality German and UK manufactured plugs, sockets and adaptors for consistent quality and reliability.
Mini USB, Micro USB or just plain old USB? Confused? The manfacturers don't make it easy do they? Here's what they all look like close up -
USB outlets are found on most PC's these days and are increasingly used for powering and charging all sorts of accessories, Digital Cameras, Mobile Phones, iPods, iPhones, Smart Phones, GPS Sat Navs, Motorcycle Intercoms, etc, etc, and we now have a range of 12v Weatherproof USB Charging Sockets and cables to suit your charging needs. Our charging sockets are rated at 2.1amps, which unlike other similar looking 1amp sockets, give sufficient power to charge iPads and tablets.
Mini USB plugs are found on the other end of the cable and used used to charge many types of GPS Sat Nav units and Digital Cameras.
Micro USB plugs are most commonly found on the increasing number of Mobile and Smart Phones.
Apple of course do things their own way, but we also have charger cables and adaptors for those too.
