Need suggestion for Dual Port USB Charger

I searched, but did not find what I was looking for.

I'm wondering if anyone has some history using a dual port USB charger. I'm looking for the following features:

Easy installation direct to battery (easy to remove and install on future bike)
Mounts to handlebar
Dual Port (mainly used to charge 2 cell phones)

Giving some thought to the following:

https://www.amazon.com/Aileap-Waterp.../dp/B06WVK36LB

Any help is greatly appreciated!

TIA

It's in Dutch, the shop is in Belgium. But you should be able to get something like this from everywhere.

An alternative would be AliExpress.

USB Charger Suggestion

I'm in the US, so would prefer to order from US dealer.

Guess I should also add this feature:
Separate on/off power switch so battery does not go dead when not in use.

Please with mine

This seems to hit all the buttons

Has an off switch that looks to be nicely protected.

Dual USB out and a Voltmeter. After two stator failures last summer a Voltmeter was on the must have list as an early warning.



Handlebar mount too.

I don't need the 12 V socket but might come in handy for a small compressor and the unit is fused. cable looks long enough too. Like that type of open connector so do not have to take the battery bolts out to connect

That's neat-o. I was going to suggest just a waterproof, marine style, cigarette lighter outlet and then you could plug in one of the USB adaptors or your GPS and have a good port for an air pump.

I've got one of these that plugs into a battery tender harness. I leave it plugged in and tucked into a top box, it seems to have no parasitic drain that i can detect (it has no lights).

I think i like MacDoc's better though!

USB Charger Suggestion

One more question for everyone. I currently have a battery tender hooked up to my battery. Will it be safe to install a USB charger as well to the battery?

Use half of one of these to provide fused power from the battery.
