The same one you use in your car. Got to put a power receptacle on the bike first.

I use the Kuryakyn Power Point also..Also just bought a 2 position USB that replaces the cigarette lighter component to charge anything that requires USB. Works great and looks good. Well made product.

You can buy USB chargers that are fused and connect straight to the battery.

Not recommended for a permanent charge (like a perm mounted GPS), but tis ok for something like cell phone charging while on the road.

I have the TAPP Lite, it works with anything that charges with a USB cord. You need to sacrifice one USB cord because it will be semi-permanently mounted to the TAPP lite unit (using electrical tape and a special 'shoe' that goes around it). This keeps it completely waterproof. You could then run the other end of the USB cord into a saddlebag or (what I do) into a tank bib. I don't charge my phone when it's raining because the tank bib isn't waterproof, but when it's dry I can stick my phone in there and charge it. Works well! It has an inline fuse so I have it direct to the battery, but you could also wire it into an ignition lead so that it'll shut off with a key.
