    Hondo Garage Perfect Squeeze and Power Puck

    Hi all,

    I have just ordered the above two products to replace my RAM X Mount and iPhone lightening charging cable. The reason I did this was because my iPhone’s IP68 is compromised whilst the charging cable is connected.

    Full report when fitted and tried but anyone have experience to calm my buyer nerves?
    Love, light, and kindness,

    I mounted an SP Connect wireless charger for my Note 9, connected to one of my waterproof USB ports.  It helps a LOT to be able to just put the phone on it and turn it 90 degrees and have it secure and always powered.  You'll like not having to connect a cable to your phone.  The SP Connect and the required phone case, an excellent case I might add, was about half the price of the new Ram wireless charging dock BTW.

    It all arrived and is now fitted and working.

    The instructions said to wire directly to the battery which means the PowerPuck is always energised. If my phone is not in the bracket will there be a draw on my bike battery?

    If it supplies 2.1A, probably.  My understanding according to the paperwork that came with my waterproof USB ports that furnish 2.1A output is that they have a parasitic draw, small, but a draw.  Digital may be the best bet for accurate information.

    The instructions said to wire directly to the battery which means the PowerPuck is always energised. If my phone is not in the bracket will there be a draw on my bike battery?

    Despite the instructions saying connect it directly to the battery. If possible, I do not advise this, unless the connection socket for the telephone is stored inside the TopCase or in the glove compartment.

    In the case of giving permanent voltage, it would be fine, for example, if you are traveling and stopping for lunch and in that time it is necessary to charge the phone battery. But like I say, the phone kept in TopCase or glove box.

    If we supply voltage directly from the battery to the support of the phone, this means leaving the phone charged while we stop for lunch and as you will understand, you can not leave the phone in sight of thieves.

    Therefore, for the phone holder, it has to be connected with tension after the ignition key.

    The current consumption, if the phone is not connected to the support, the consumption is minimal and the battery hardly appreciates it.

    But make no mistake, there is consumption, without a telephone there is consumption to feed the circuit, that consumption is insignificant.

    In any case, most of the phone holders have a tiny switch that you can hardly see, to which you can disconnect the circuit and at the same time a small LED that they have as a warning goes off to know the On aOff status.

    First of all, tell you that I hope your brother is well. That is my best wish.

    Regarding the question, thank you for remembering me for things related to the world of electronics.

    Here I want to emphasize that most of the times we should not look at the specifications according to what things.

    For example, if it really says that such a connection gives 2.1 amps at 5 volts that is how a USB connection works, if it really gives us that amount of amps.

    I have found many times that such connections do not supply what the manufacturer says of their product. Normally this is usually noticed by the excess temperature that is noticed in the mobile or similar, if it heats more than normal, it is because the demand for that mobile is higher than the one that the supply can supply.

    Most Chinese-made USB adapters do not provide the ampere supply they claim.

    There are ways to check the consumption of any device connected to the battery directly to the battery or voltage supply connectors.

    For example, with a multimeter put one clamp on negative and the other in amp mode. and connected the red and black clamp in series between the device to check its consumption and the positive output of the connector or battery.
