Default Re: Power wiring question.

I would think that the input voltage is an important issue to consider. Your ipod is probably something like 2 or 3 volts. Introducing 12v into it might not be a good idea. Why not get another battery of the correct voltage. It wouldn't have to be near as large as the motorcycle battery and could mount easily. Just my thoughts. I have two batteries on one bike; a 12v for the main headlight and a small 6 v for the tail and brake light. I carry them both in a nylon pouch strapped to the saddle.
