Power outlet adapters

The only thing which plugs into the 2 outlets on my 2001 K1200 is the official BMW charger. I want a cigarette type outlet from which I can blow up an air mattress or charge my cell phone. Suggestions?

Easy. Just get yourself some standard Hella plugs and some 2 way cigarette lighter splitters with reasonable wire lengths. Cut off the plug and wire the Hella plugs to the tails you have.

I bought a couple of powerlet-usb adapters and powerlet-12v reg socket adapter off Ebay for about 15.00 each they work well for cell phone charging and powering other standard 12v power socket accessories !

https://touratech-usa.com/Store/BMW-...CABEgLMd_D_BwE has a short cord connecting the adapters.

https://www.advdesigns.com/stgepopl....iABEgLVk_D_BwE is solid one piece.
Goggle "convert bmw power outlet to cigarette lighter" for other possibilities.
