I'm gonna stick a cig lighter socket in my fairing infil pocket, i have noticed it never, ever gets wet in there and if i get one of the marine ones from maplins it should be fine anyway.

It keeps it out of sight and is easy to get to.

i'd be tempted to put a tamiya contector in there and an adapter to plug a fag lighter in. that way it's only a small hole that can easiler be sealled if you want to remove it.

I have a Tamiya connector on the power lead for the sat nav. It plugs straight into the permanent battery charger coupling which is also a Tamiya plug.

The one I use came with a Datatool charger and has an in line fuse. I lowered the rating on the fuse to accommodate the Garmin and expected it to blow when I plug the charger in but up to press it hasn't.
