    Laptop Charging from the Trophy

    OK....I admit it.  I cant go on a long trip without my Laptop :001: Laptops need a large voltage to recharge....like 16-19V. Question Has anybody tapped the left hand side outlet to do this? Cant use USB or conventional out puts as they are ALL only 5V. Can this be done? Ideas Please.

    I charge my Surface Pro 4 in the top case by using the car adapter with the 12v outlet.  It works fine for me.  When I get to camp, the Surface Pro is charged up and ready to go.

    Mini laptop, micro USB and 12V->USB with a 2.1A output and shazam...

    JohnD.  The Euro / Powerlet port on the left side of the bike is always live.  Be careful if you use it for charging a laptop.  Without the bike running you drain the battery and may not be able to start the bike.  The other ports only activate when the bike is running and are good sources for charging loads.  That is why the top case works well.

    Yes thanks for that. It could drain your battery.
    NOW Getting the right Plug (P pin) to Mini cigarette  lighter is the challenge and using the top box port for charging.

    Have just bought another bit of IT kit. With this new 4G WiFi data mobile modem I have just purchased I could do a Google search from the stationary bike...from my Laptop...wooohooo!
