The think tank of the BMW specialists from Grafschaft Ringen is known for developing pragmatic, functional components that are simply smart and that inevitably ask: Why didn't anyone think of it before? The USB charging box, which works like a kind of socket on the motorcycle, also falls into this category. This extremely practical USB charging box fits all BMW motorcycles with the factory BMW navigation preparation (Navigator V, VI). Instead of the navigator, it is simply plugged into the BMW navigation bracket, locked and locked and theft-proof. Power is supplied via the contacts on the navigation bracket.
Fast charging ports USB A / USB C
On the right side of the housing, it has two common USB ports of the type USB 3.1 type A and USB 3.1 type C, which meet the standards for fast charging connections QC 3.0 and QC 4.0 (QC = Quick Charge). The activity of the charging box is indicated by a blue LED control light, which is clearly visible, directly above the two USB slots. The charging box is splash-proof. When not in use, the slots can be closed with form-fitting elastomer covers against splash water and dust and thus protected.
More than just a charging box!
The front of the charging box is equipped with four threaded sockets with screws. These are arranged exactly in such a way that they correspond to the standardized hole pattern of various fastening systems, such as the bracket of the Garmin Zumo XT navigation device. This turns the charging box into a clever adapter: These fastening systems can be plugged into the charging box in no time and in a space-saving manner and screwed securely in order to connect the devices to the on-board power supply.
In addition to the "Universal" variant described, the Ringen company also offers two other versions that complement the USB charging box with the MultiClamp or SP-connect system brackets, for example to reliably attach and secure smartphones to the USB charging box in the ergonomically recommended line of sight operate.

With the three available versions, there are no limits to the versatility of the Wunderlich USB charging box!
