PowerHub2 and SW-Motech Dual USB
Have a PowerHub2 on my 2010 DL650 and I recently replaced the pre-existing toggle switch/12-V outlet with a SW-Motech Dual USB port from Twisted Throttle. Since I don't want the port constantly drawing power I simply hooked it up in the PowerHub2 and positioned the mini-fuse in the switched power position. To my surprise the USB port was powered up; key wasn't in the ignition.
I know the PowerHub2 is wired properly (black and red direct to the battery terminal, and yellow is posi-tapped to the brown wire in the tail light assembly for switched power). I have GPS, heated grips, horn, etc all running to switched power in the PowerHub2, and none of them power-up unless the ignition is on.
