Where to add a cigarette style power outlet?

Just got as wild hair so I haven't went out to look it over yet, but since I can mount my phone to my top cover(fuel tank cover) of my bike using the suction cup car dock. Which comes with a cigarette lighter charger.

I want to try and add a cigarette lighter style outlet to my bike to power my phone while I am on the Austin Hill country ride. And for all future rides that I may go on. I already have a trickle charger plug in adapter on my battery so I'm thinking that if I can't find a permanent mounting location. I might make a power adapter that plugs into that. Which will make it removable when not in use.

Has anyone installed one permanently? And if so where did you put it? I can get a waterproof one for marine application, but I don't want it to stick out like a sore thumb.

I have flush mounted them in the ram air plastic cover and next to guage cluster(in the tail for phone charging). Or hard line it, put a relay under the seat, it comes on with key. Put a short spiral cord you can tuck under the plastic in the cluster area ect.
it just depends on the bike for placement.

There's a gap between the gas tank and frame. I installed a relay on mine and ran the cord out the gap at like 12'o clock if you were sitting on the bike and used a two sided tape clip to hold the wire on the tank near fuel cap. There's like 6 in.'s of wire showing on the tank coming from the triple clamp area to fuel cap area. I hope that makes sense.

Skeletor u lost me with adding a relay...shouldnt be so complicated.

For the OP buy this

Just wire it on to your battery just like your battery tender wire. I have the eklipse version but like this one better. U can use a tank bag to hold ur phone and run plug the charger into this. Or mount it on ur clip on,triple tree or just tuck it inside ur fender as long as it's not obstructing the turning of your bars.
