True, they are very cool and very comfortable.

I install them in a moment, take photos and open a thread for that topic.

I use the power outlet in the top box a great deal without issue.  The outlet wired directly to the battery, which is continually on I used once to charge my mobile phone.  Plugged it in and walked away, ten metres later I returned to the bike and touch the phone which was red hot and a molten mess.  Luckily it was still under guarantee and was exchanged without question.  I have not used the outlet since.

That does not make any sense, it is very possible that you plugged it in without a 5 volt adapter or a 12 to 5 volt adapter that did not have enough amps that your mobile phone needed.

Although the socket is continuously supplying 12 volts, they do not have to burn any appliance-

It is the same as when you plug your phone with the 220 volt to 5 volt adapter and connect it to your home electrical network, you always have power in your house and nothing similar never happens to you. Well, it's the same ...

Without knowing which Make and Model of Phone it was,
I recall some horror stories a couple of years ago about a well known
Mobile Phone brand that had a fault where they would be burst into flames
when left charging, so if it was one of those, or a similar fault with your phone,
that could explain it, and would have been nothing to do with the Trophy Socket.

Let me see if got this right.  I have used the outlet in the top box to charged my phone a number of times with out a problem, so I assumed I did not need the 12v to 5V adapter "assumption being the route of all cockups"  and I could use the  permanent power outlet would be safely.   Am I to understand that if I use the permanent power outlet I will need the step down the voltage?

Any / all of the Accessory Sockets on the Trophy provide 12 Volts.

USB devices run on 5 Volts, and if your device has a USB Connection,
you don't want to be connecting it to a higher voltage than that.

There are many different types of Charger or Adapter
that are designed to be plugged in to the Trophy Acccessory Sockets.

Some may be a straightforward Connection Plug, where the Output will also be 12 Volts.
This type of Plug will have wires trailing from it, for connecting to a device needing
a 12 Volt power supply, e.g. an Air Compressor :




Chargers and Adapters designed to be plugged into a 12Volt accessory socket
for powering specific devices, such as a Mobile Phone "Car Charger"
will usually have circuitry built into them to Transform the vehicle 12 Volts
down to the Voltage required to Charge to Phone ( often 5 Volts ).

5 Volts is the standard votage used by USB devices,
and you should always check what Voltage your device / Phone needs
to charge or operate, and use the correct Charger or Adapter for it.

For devices that can be powered by connecting to a USB Power Supply,
a USB Adapter can be used, that plugs into the Accessory Socket
and has a USB Socket that a USB Cable can be plugged into.

This is just one of the many types of adapter available, not visible in the Photo
but it has a single USB Type "A" Output socket ( 5 Volts / 1 Amp ) :



The Input and Output voltages are usually marked on the Charger or adapter somewhere,
or on a label attached to it, or on the packaging it was originally supplied in.



Hope this helps !

Huge help as usual.  I'll be looking on Amazon in the morning. 

Thanks Coconut.  :028:
