The battery connectors are neither crimped nor soldered to the wire, the cover just slide on and off, not providing waterproofing. The battery connectors did not stay attached for long enough to complete fitting, which is a relief as I was about to make a 200 mile journey in terrible rain.

The product is not fit for purpose nor manufactured to a sufficiently high standard.

nice long lead, cheap tatty socket with a poorly fitting cap that would be splash proof at best.
Useless for the job as I have to use electrical tape to hold all 12v plugs I have tried in the socket otherwise they spring out and lose contact with the end terminal.

At first glance this appears solid enough, with a 2 amp inline fuse to give the impression of electrical safety. However, the socket itself is flimsy and unsprung. Compare it with any cigarette lighter that comes pre-fitted to a vehicle, and you immediately see that this is unlikely to do the job consistently or, more to the point, safely.

Inspecting more closely, the connectors are not properly crimped, and the leads themselves are desperately thin even for a 2 amp connection.

Just no.

Simple to hook up to the battery of my Triumph. As I am storing the connector under the seat the wire is plenty long enough. Couple this with a 'GIVI S850 GPS / SAT NAV UNIVERSAL WATERPROOF HOLDER' and use the sat nav from the car or a smart phone. A whole lot more cheaper than a dedicated motorbike sat nav.
No issues at all. I will update this if anything changes.

As mentioned in my review for Mini USB Right Angle Adaptor, Used this to connect power to my Sat Nav. After 30 miles, Sat Nav kept powering up as in some sort of "loop" Decided to purchase 12V Lead from Rider Mount with Voltage Regulator, these are supposed to be 100% reliable, As yet I haven't connected it to Motorcycle Battery to test and use. Therefore awarded 3 stars! Not sure what the problem is with my Garmin, uses the same lead as in the car so I know its the same and it doesn't "Cycle" on/off when fitted in the vehicle. Will keep to charge mobile phone up if required. Also this took about 3 weeks to arrive! So not good on that score.

Just have to point out that the wire is too short, they should be aware of this detail, since not all bikes have a battery near the front of the bike

I bought this so I could charge a 'car' sat-nav system on my bike. It was easy to fit and does the job perfectly. The only thing I could mark against it is the cap is not brilliant. The hoop that attaches the cap to the main body (to prevent you from losing it) doesn't do a very good job keeping the cap safe. It comes off very easily and as this keeps the charger water proof when not in use, this feature could be improved. I have had to use extra tape to try and secure it.

This is a good little socket and now I've fitted it to my bike it works fine in charging my satnav. The leads are a bit short and it looks like it is designed to hook up to the ignition or front light rather than the battery as I have installed it. I had to extend the leads to get it to reach back the battery under the passenger seat. Also, it comes with no fittings so I used cable ties to fit it. Finally, it comes with a waterproof cap, but it isn't properly fastened to the socket and is in danger of dropping off when not in use.
Othewise the socket is perfectly functional and the inline fuse is an excellent addition compared to other sockets available.

Bought to power SatNav, not because I have taken up high speed smoking! East to fit - just attached direct to battery - but cable is too short to mount it on handlebars of my CB1300. Good for the price though.
