6-12v inverter

Postby Kevin.Priest » Wed Jul 25, 2018 9:15 pm

In you are wondering I am trying to use a Sat Nav on my VF31.

Does anyone use a 6-12 volt inverter on their bike ?
I see there’s so many available and i really haven’t got much testing time so if you have any experience of them it would be very helpful.

Hi,
The normal USB-type chargers for cars seem to work fine on 6 volts; I've used these to power my Garmin satnav and to charge my phone with no problems. They just reduce whichever input voltage they get to the correct 5 volts output for USB powered devices. :-)
Cheers, Graham
