Bikemaster 12V/15A POWER ADAPTER CENTER from DICK'S HONDA

Features 3 US cigarette lighter outlets and a USB port
Works with any tank bag
Designed to stay in the bag when the bag is removed
Comes with a quick disconnect pig tail which also fits all standard US battery charger hard wire kits
Comes complete with Hard Wire Charger Kit
Best of all, you can run a GPS, MP3, iPhone, CB or anything else for that matter
Features an L.E.D. light so you know you are getting power
This Power Center is a must for any rider, essential if you have the Firstgear GPS Bag

I see there is a fuse attached to the hard-wire kit but not sure what kind... anyhow, can someone tell me if this would work on our ninja 650? Tnx!

PS forgot to mention what I am trying to do... I have a GPS nuvi 1390 and this would be the primary reason for me to install hard-wire charging cig. lighter... now, I came across this one and it would be great if I can charge GPS via cig. lighter input plus USB for my phone... even better it resides in my tank bag which has ton of space for it - only thing that makes me wonder is does this work as good as it sounds on the paper... kind of plug n play thing... Any suggestions, help, etc? Tnx again!
Don't bother with a hard wired kit. I use an adapter that plugs in to my battery tender cable and gives me USB power for whatever I need. It really is just "plug and play". Since you are getting your power from the battery tender cable, the circuit is already fused and safe.
I picked the USB adapter up at: http://www.americancrossroaders.com
The whole thing fits in my poscket when I don't need it and connects in about 2 seconds.

Be aware that some phones and some sat navs go into a USB mode when connected to a normal usb cable. In this mode they charge but are expecting to interchange data with a computer and can't be used normally. The car chargers sold or supplied by the device manufacturer send a signal to the device telling it that it isn't connected to a computer.

You're more likely to have a problem with sat navs than with 'phones.
