I know that there are several threads on here about about to get juice from the battery to a GPS.

I saw this simple attachment for sale - Battery Tender 081-0069-8 Female Cigarette Adaptor for Quick Disconnect by Battery Tender.



Can something this simple work?!

The trick is where to keep it from rattling around. I found some Velcro wire holders and ran the wire up to the handlebars from under the tank and I Velcro the adapter to the handle bars.

That is basically what I made in my GPS Mount thread that is stickied at the top. I took that battery tender connection and soldered it to a cigarette adapter. Cool that you can just buy one now. :)

I actually made mine the same way you did about 3 years ago because I already had the parts laying around. I like that fact that it is easily removed when not needed.

Really, really dumb question- I have never bumped into a pigtail for a bike battery. What do those look like/which one would fit into this connector?

Only pulls if something is connected to complete the circuit, otherwise it's just two wires connected to each side of the battery.

I just ordered one from Amazon - the shipping is about $10 cheaper than ordering from the Battery Tender web site!!!

By the way, that's also where I order my oil filters!
