Power supply for motorcycle

What are people using for a power supply on a motorcycle? Dirt bike. I don't want to add a 12v cig lighter. Does someone know of a small usb charger that has 2 leads off of it or 12v supply?

    We've been using cigarette adapters paired with a 2.4amp usb adapter. You also have to ensure the bike has a high output stator installed. The combination of these two will keep an iPad mini retina powered up. Your only going to find rugged ATV and Dirtbike USB ports with a 1.0-2.1amp output which is not going to be enough to charge a running iPad mini...if you do find a 2.4 out USB let us know. Even the few we've found are not putting out 2.4amps like they say it does.

    Of course if your running an iPhone on your bike you can get away with the lower power.

    For larger races we will Liquid Tape around this cigarette and USB connection to help seal everything up and protect it till the finish.
