Cigarette lighter outlet mounted under the seat. Cheaper maybe if you already have plug in chargers, I guess i'm old school but I think usb won't look right on a 1950ish bike.
All back to normal. Probably the stock battery is too weak for the extra fuse (15A)?
A fuse won't change the load on a battery. You didn't mention how you wired it up or where you were taking the power from. Somehow you must've bypassed a switch that is necessary for the starter to function.A hot wire from the battery to the adapter, and a ground wire from it, is all you need. If you want to add a fuse in the hot wire, that's fine. You don't need to get into the motorcycle electrical loom at all.Bare
I have a Battery Tender Jr cable hardwired into my battery. I picked up a 12v outlet with a quick disconnect end off amazon for $8. I keep it in my toolbox with a two port usb cigarette adapter. I have a velcro strap to hold it to the frame when in use. It's quick and easy to deploy when I need it.
I have a Battery Tender on my C5 and never even thought of this bit of brilliance!! Thank you!
Then put on a helmet, because this is going to blow your mind!
