Most of the wires likely could not handle the load of the lights so you probably would need to use a relay. The stock HD aux lights use the low beam wire as the keyed source to trip the relay. For charging the cell phone I simply use a USB connector that plugs into my heated gear plug (always on). As a backup, I have a USB adapter to plug into my battery tender cable
