    A/C for the TTSE?

    Draws 11 amps. I have not yet done the math, but I think the TTSE should be able to handle it as things like the heated grips won't be running at the same time.

    Anybody try it yet?

    Around $1,500.00.   See here.

    Yes, this summer I started looking at bike AC units too. That was one of the first ones to come up. Some can be pretty pricey, but in these hot climates might be worth it. I would need to get a new solid jacket too, wouldn't work with my mesh jackets.

    MiClimate should be shipping by the end of the year according to an e-mail I received from them.  $300 US for preorder during their funding campaign, smaller, and 12V or rechargeable battery power, cools by 20 degrees below ambient, and heats by 30 degrees above ambient.  It uses technology from the US Navy that it has a licensing agreement for that they have improved and miniaturized to some degree to make the unit more efficient and smaller.  Least wise that's what THEY say.  I'll let you know if mine ever arrives.

    I see they are located right there in FL. Have you known anybody to try one?

    I wonder how well they work in the deserts such as a trip through Death Valley this time of year. It's  116 F there today. That would be a good test.

    How long will that battery charge last and does it charge from the bike?

    I'll have to go back and look again, but I think it will run or charge on 12V power, but not sure if it will run AND charge like for instance a Sena headset.  Initially I think they were getting 3-4 hours per charge on the prototypes.  I haven't looked them up in a couple of months so I need a refresher course.  Be right back!  Ok, I looked it up and it draws 2.5A (30W at 12-14VDC), and the battery charges by USB and the descriptive says it can be charged while riding.  They do NOT specifically say it can be charged while USING though.  Wouldn't matter to me, I'd use power on it while riding and only use it off the bike for short periods.

    It charges a 12 volt battery by using  a low current 5 VDC USB port? Not impossible, but not very efficient charging when they use a DC to DC converter. It would take forever and a day to charge. Borders on not being possible, IMO.

    But perhaps I am missing something here. I will check later.

    It may not be operating on 12V.  The last company I worked for had control circuitry that operated on 5.2V and they were being advised before I retired that they should be redesigning their controls to work on lower voltage.
