    hi all!
    I hope someone could help me with useful informations.
    So, my question is from power socket next to ignition key on my Tiger 800 can I charge my iPhone? I'm using my phone as GPS nav, I've got an aftermarket charging socket on my bike already with USB(5v) connector but it doesn't charge enough my phone the battery is goig down while using. I'm afraid it will only damage the battery on my phone.
    Anybody have some experiences about this topic? Or mybe a solution for this problem?
    So can the stock factory socket be useful? And where can I get the adaptor for it?
    Thank you in advance Triumph lovers :)

    I don't use my power socket although it should work. What I use is the optimate sae charging socket here and bought one of these to go with it, It worked using my Iphone and sygic and kept things charged. I beleive as long as youre getting 2amp output it should charge. a lot only deliver 1amp. I have it on my tiger just tucked under the frame under the seat so its easily accessible

    I use one of these adaptors in the socket on my Tiger 800.
    Had no problem charging my Samsung Galaxy when I used it as a satnav.

    So it must be 2amp, okay I didn't know it. Thanks a lot! :) Do you know is the power socket on our Tigers deliver 2amp?
    Where can I get one of these adaptors? I will try to find it on my own anyway, but if you have a minute show me from where did you get it. Thank you :)

    Amazon I think or ebay - just search USB/Hella adaptor.
