Ive just got some bad news that i and my fellow truckers are to lose our jobs next month, and it doesnt look like i can get work elsewhere so i decided im going to vist every country in europe, east europe and a bit of northwest Africa ( i live in Ireland ) ill be gone for about a year on the road and i want to bring my Nintendo DS to play with in my tent.
Is there a way to wire up a 12 volt socket (cigarette lighter ) with a step-up converter or something? like whats in a car or the kawi 1400 gtr? im not very good with electrics, i dont even know if this is possible. I only want to recharge the DS battery with a 12 volt plug that goes in a 12 socket in a car when in driving my versys, will it flatten the battery, can the alternator handle it?
i have a lead with 2 clips on the end and a socket on the other (see pic) i got with a DC to AC 3 pin socket, but that seems too easy to just clip it to the battery, do i need a relay or fuse or something?
All you need is a car charger for that particular Nintendo and you can charge it while you are riding without a worry.
You want a cigarette lighter socket that connects to the battery more permanently than those alligator clips, though. Do a search here on wiring auxiliary electrical components, you'll see many different ways to do it.
Yeah a cigarette lighter on the bike, and the Nintendo branded cigarette lighter adapter for the DS are what I would reccomend...
sholdnt be hard to install nor get a hold of... and hey! if you are gonna be in N. Africa this summer, PM me! I'll be in Tunisia/Libya for about all of July and August...
