i am looking to run a USB charging cord into my Doo short rise handlebar bag.  i dont want some big, bulky connector in the bag.  was thinking of just using something like this, and hard-wiring it into the accessory plug under the dash.  what has everyone else done?

***  i dont want to use the plug in the "glove box" as i wont be storing my phone/gps in it (too small of a space on the summit)

I had one of those and it worked well. Easy to hook up. I just zip tied mine to the back of the bar riser on my xrs. If I need to charge my phone I just plugged in the charger and ran the charging cord into the bag and zipped up to it. Simple and easy.

I bought a 3 port usb to 12v adapter. Put it in the glove box in the 12v outlet. Ran a 4’ mini USB cable along with a 4’ lighting charging cable out to the bar riser, I can charge my phone, gps, charger pack, etc out on the bar riser and no bulky connections. Pulled the panels and gauge and tucked them in and popped up thru the port for the brake line and wires on the bars. When not in use, roll up and store in the bag. Been running this setup for 2 years with no issues.

I bought the Battery Tender 081-0158 to plug into my lead coming off the battery.
