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.

Any suggestions?

1- You have a short on that part of the connection.
2- Try the fuse in the full time position, if it dosen't correct the problem you have a short.

Tried the fuse in both positions, switched and constant, and the USB is constantly powered up regardless. Not sure what you mean by a short in that part of the connection. If I was shorting I'd expect the mini-fuse to blow

If the fuse is set one way then the current flows all the time. If you set the fuse the other way current is allowed to pass depending on the ignition switch position. I would assume that there could be a short on the one side of the fuse that is ignition dependant therefore constant current as long as the fuse is in. The only way to be certain is to change the wires to another fuse for testing purposes.
