I like to listen my tunes while riding and also like to be able to answer important phone calls, therefore I’ve been looking for a power source to fit on the bars of the bobber. I’ve seen a few out there but they look cheap and don’t 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.

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.

Thanks so much for all the suggestions, I went with a bikemaster one fro A and J cycles, ran the wire up under the tank and zip tied it to the bars! Im sure I'll be replacing it every so often, just don't see it being a permanent solution.
Thanks again for all the helpful info!
Nick.
