Stay Powered Wherever You Ride

 
(3/1/2010)
March 1, 2010 - Warren, MI - Stay Powered Wherever You Ride: Plug-in style cigarette lighters have long been a staple in the automotive industry as the power source for everything from radar detectors and GPS navigation systems all the way to mini-TVs, computers and cell phone chargers. Now motorcyclists can enjoy the same level of convenience with the new Handlebar Power Outlet conversion kit.

Powerlet "This is the next generation of handlebar-mounted cigarette lighter sockets," explains Powerlet marketing manager Adam Bonislawski. "Intended for bars from 1-1/8 inch up to 1-1/4 inch diameter, this socket set-up is CNC-machined from billet aluminum and packaged with a 60-inch wire harness... and unlike other auxiliary wiring sets, ours even includes an actual cigarette lighter."

Built to meet or exceed OEM specs of any powersports product, including motorcycles, ATVs and personal watercraft, the AKT model Handlebar Power Outlet is fabricated from Marine grade materials and designed to function easily even while the rider is wearing gloves. "We designed it to fit a multitude of handlebar thicknesses or even frame rails and every Powerlet kit comes complete with rubber-filled sleeves to ensure a tight and secure fit," Adam adds. This is our premium handlebar- or frame-mounted solution, Powerlet also offers an entry level model with a plastic rather than the CNC-machined billet aluminum."

"Our product line was inspired by personal experience and the realization that there were no worthwhile options for clean, reliable on-board power for cell phones, stereos and GPS devices," reiterates Bonislawski. "Before we came on to the scene, riders would bust out the black tape and wire strippers and cut into their bike's fragile wiring to tie-in a cheap cigar lighter to power their devices." Never again.

Motorcycles, snowmobiles and ATVs create a demanding environment for any peripheral add-on. The ideal electrical system connection must provide security while at the same time the ability to easily disconnect when required. Designed to not vibrate out, Powerlet cables and plugs exceed all vibration, size and amperage requirements. "Our engineers make sure the connectors are compatible, fuses are sized correctly and that voltage is properly regulated for safe operation," Bonislawski adds. "Powerlet's quality products are built to last a lifetime and priced to not break your wallet."
