Wiring for a female USB adapter
I've been wanting to wire up a USB (that's right, as in the PC standard port) into my Versys for a while now. My cell phone is USB powered and so is my GPS. I seriously think a female USB plug would end up being more useful than a cigarette lighter plug.
The only thing required for a power only USB plug would ve a +5 volt and ground. The data lines won't be needed for charging only. The draw according to spec is 500mA normally.
Pin Name Cable color Description
1 VCC Red +5 VDC
2 D- White Data -
3 D+ Green Data +
4 GND Black Ground
I'd much rather get a kit that wires directly to the battery, but I haven't seen one yet. They're a bit hard to search for specifically and if you spot one you're never sure if its what you need.
Avoiding screwing up my electrical system with a head light wire job would be perferable, but I really like the idea of having the plug power off when the bike is turned off.
Any tips? I'll keep digging and update with anything I come up with. Thanks.
