Heated Liner Plugs into the BMW socket ?

Can anyone recommend a heated vest / or liner which plugs into the BMW electrical plug ? I would rather not have to tie into the battery. TY in advance.

You can get adapter cables to pug into the bmw outlet. I like the powerlet jacket liner. Wireless control is cool.

Then go to you dealer and get the cables you want either to the battery or the power outlet.

Just Go

Why not tie into the battery?

I had mine run under the seat and plugged in my gerbing heat troller right into that.

Worked well for many miles and many cold nights....

A big +1 on this. I had a Gerbing's heated jacket liner for several years. It's still a fine product. Then I switched to Powerlet's jacket when I bought their wireless controller. Very nice.

+1 on this, too! My power cable runs from the battery, up the front of the seat, to my electrified tank bag, so all I have to do is fish the end of the cable out of the bag and plug my jacket in. This eliminates having a much longer cable running down the side of the bike to an outlet.

I like the sounds of your set-up. What is "electrified" about the tank bag ?
Thanks to all for all replies.
