Yep, that’s it, can pick them up for about $10.00-20.00 bucks. Charge away!

There's not so many places you can get them in the UK, but I found a couple of places selling them on eBay. I got mine for £11.99.

They also sell those portable cell phone chargers, external batteries pretty reasonable and no wiring needed. I have one that was given to me, but daughter had it last. She said it worked great, though.

The 2019 FXLR has a USB port under the tank somewhere, thought about getting the battery tender one, but I don't worry that much about my phone, but I might start running my GPS on the bikes soon, so might look into it.

Going camping, leave the phone alone in case of emergency only and should keep a charge for a while.

I bought a second one of the Battery Tender USB charger adapters; so I can carry one on each bike.
