Product review: OptiMate DIN USB charger

This USB charger allows up to 2 devices to be charged from the DIN socket on your motorcycle. 

What’s good?

I’ve been caught out so many times by jumping on a BMW or Triumph only to find that I can’t plug anything it to charge because they use the daft DIN socket sizes. With a GS Rallye on the fleet this year, I decided it was time to get one of these. It’s been faultless in operation, often charging two things at the same time without any apparent dip in performance. The weatherproof seals bring a level of peace of mind when you get caught out in a deluge and the power indicator is a nice touch, too. 

What’s not?

The little rubber bungs that you pop in the USB holes when not charging something do have a propensity for popping back out all on their own – so you have to keep an eye on them.
