I recently asked my mechanic whether it's a good idea to install an USB-charger on the left (hot-running) engine-side of a Harley-Davidson Street Bob 2016 (103 ci)?
There are USB-chargers that can be installed on the horn:
but is this really a good idea when it comes to loading a smartphone during a drive? Even if this charger (in the picture) is suitable, have there ever been problems with USB-smartphones-cables themselves, in terms of loading a smartphone while the engine is running?
The reason for this question is that I do not want to install a charger on the handlebar or somewhere above the tank, simply because it looks ugly.
Furthermore the USB-smartphone-cable should be under the tank as well, because I'm afraid that the cable can become loose during a drive, caused by the wind and shaking engine.
Thank you very much!
