Anyone know of high quality Handlebar power outlet

I like to listen my tunes while riding and also like to be able to answer important phone calls, therefore Iíve been looking for a power source to fit on the bars of the bobber. Iíve seen a few out there but they look cheap and donít look like they would last very long. Just looking for suggestions and or thoughts on what you have.
Thanks Nick

Why not buy a cheaper tubular power bank and attach it to something that can clamp onto the bar?

My solution seems to work, at least for me. It is an iPhone 6 so I play music, answer calls and have a map display


The mophie powerbank case has a quadlock stuck on the rear which connects to the bike.

Yes... big fan of SlipGrip + Ram Mount combo wired to battery... The phone case stays on and easy in and out of holder... Battery tender SAE to USB simplifies power connection.

I've used a couple of different handlebar USB to SAE power outlets. They are all over amazon/ebay. All have eventually died on me. I ended up using a battery tender SAE/USB adapter (link below) and use a black iphone cable direly plugged into that. I'm also using a quadlock mount/case and tuck the iphone cable under the handle bar wire ties. Much cleaner and more reliable than the handlebar outlets. It's held up for a few months now.
