    Guys,

    I have a question for the forum. I plan a road trip down to SoCal next month. I want to keep my phone charged while riding, and desire to buy an SAE to USB charger. There appear to be many options. My main concern is fuse protection. I was thinking about buying this:

    https://www.amazon.com/SAE-USB-Adap...rger&qid=1563675957&s=wireless&sr=1-1-catcorr

    My plan if feasible would be to plug it directly into the SAE connector of the battery tender cable already installed on the bike. Is the tender cable already fuse protected? I tried looking at the wiring diagram in my genuine Honda service manual but the tender cable is not depicted in the wiring diagram. Any advice would be truly appreciated.

    Tender cable is not in manual because the bike didn't come that way. Yes, generally there is a fuse and it should work fine.

    Sorry for being obtuse, but what do you mean by a flush?

    I think it auto-corrected to flush, but he meant fuse. Usually battery tender harnesses have an inline fuse, so you'd be fine. I would get the one you linked to and not worry too much about it.
